Chia seeds become gelatinous when soaked in liquid, which despite the way that sounds, provides a very pleasant texture perfect for any Chia Fresca. What's a Chia Fresca, you ask? Essentially, it's our take on a refreshing lemonade-type drink with chia seeds. After all, who wouldn't want that extra boost of Omega-3 and fibre that chia adds? Don't stop at lemonade though - when the feeling is right, add the chia to your cocktails (or mocktails) and sip it on a sunny afternoon!

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup (2 oz) lime juice (about 2 limes)
  • PRANA organic fair trade cane sugar (to rim glasses)
  • 2 tsp PRANA organic whole black ProactivChia seeds 
  • ¼ cup (2 oz) water
  • ¼ cup (2 oz) tequila
  • ⅛ cup (1 oz) Triple Sec or Cointreau
  • A dash of maple syrup
  • ½ cup (4 oz) Kombucha, your choice of flavour
  • A few ice cubes
  • 1 sliced lime (for garnish)

Preparation

  1. Dip glass rims in a little lime juice, then roll in cane sugar to frost rim.
  2. In a small bowl, mix water and chia seeds. Set aside 20 minutes while chia turns into gel. In a cocktail shaker or mason jar, mix together the alcohols, lime juice, maple syrup, ice cubes and chia gel. Secure lid and give it a good shake.
  3. Add kombucha, stir quickly and pour into frosted glasses. Garnish with a slice of lime.
