A Mexican energy drink

Chia Fresca is a traditional energy drink from Mexico, made by adding chia seeds to water with some lime/lemon juice. I read about this drink online and thought it would be interesting to try, I heard that the seeds create a thick texture that is almost smoothie like.

Ingredients:

2 cups coconut water

1.5 tbsp chia seeds

1/2 tbsp fresh lemon or lime juice

1/2 tbsp maple syrup

Combine the chia seeds and coconut water in a jar or glass and stir very well to combine. Let this sit for 10 minutes to allow the chia seeds to swell up.

Add the lime or lemon juice and syrup to taste. Stir well and drink up!
