Chia Fresca is a refreshing lemonade-like summer drink with added chia seeds. It's an excellent way to add chia to your diet.
Hibiscus flowers are traditionally used in Bissap, a Senegalese tea. The flavour is exotically fruity.
How It's Made
2 tablespoons of dried hibiscus flowers
1 L of filtered water
3 tablespoons of maple syrup
1/4 cup of lemon juice
4 tablespoons of chia seeds
Soak the hibiscus flowers in 1 L of water for an hour in order to infuse it. Filter the water.
In a large mason jar, add the infused hibiscus water and add maple syrup, lemon juice and chia seeds. Shake vigorously every 5 minutes so that the chia does not stick to the bottom of the jar. Let sit for 30 minutes in the fridge. Serve cold.
