Chia Juice
Serves: 4 servings
  • 2 cups filtered or spring water
  • 6 tablespoons (heaping ⅓ cup) chia seeds
  • 2 cups (16 ounces) cranberry juice, blueberry juice, or blackberry juice
  • Lemon and/or lime slices and fresh mint for garnish (optional)
  1. Fill a quart size mason jar or other glass/plastic container with the water and warm it in the microwave for 1 minute. (It should be very warm but not hot.) Add chia seeds and stir well. Cover the container and place in the refrigerator overnight.
  2. The next day combine chia seed mixture with the juice and stir well. Pour into glasses and garnish with lemon/lime and fresh mint if desired.
The water can be warmed on the stove-top if you don't have a microwave. Heat it till it is very warm to the touch, but not hot.
Any color or flavor of juice can be used in this recipe but darker colored juices are more visually appealing.
