Lemon Chia Fresca
This weekend I tried the lemon chia fresca and I was pleased with the results. I combined the chia seeds with water and let them soak overnight. It is amazing how much liquid they can absorb, so make sure you add at least 1/2 cup of water to your tablespoon of chia seeds. I ended up using about half the sugar that the recipe called for. I would recommend this drink; I really enjoyed the flavor and the chia seeds. Plus the chia seeds were fun to watch floating around. So here is the recipe I recommend.
1 Tbsp Chia Seed
1/2 cup Water (add more if needed)
Juice of 1 Lemon
1/4 cup Sugar
32 fl oz Club Soda
Lemon wedges, to garnish
Combine chia seed and water in a bowl. Refrigerate overnight. Combine lemon juice and sugar in a saucepan and heat just until granules dissolve. Remove from heat and let cool completely. Fill 4 tall glasses with ice. Divide chia seed and lemon syrup evenly between the glasses. Top with club soda. Garnish with lemon wedges. Makes 4 servings.
