This formula couldn't be more simple, though I felt I had created healthy beverage gold when it occurred to me. So much so that I found it necessary to text the hubs and let him know he was married to a culinary genius. I won't claim to be the first to think of this, but I'm sure I was the most excited.
If you like the taste of fresh squeezed lemonade, but don't love drinking sugar, this beverage is for you.
Single Serving Chia Seed Lemonade
12 oz water
Juice from two lemons
1 tablespoon chia seeds
Liquid stevia to taste
Combine the chia seeds and the water. Add in the lemon juice and sweeten with liquid stevia to taste (I used a full liquid dropper's worth (about 1/4 teaspoon), but sweeten to your heart's content).
Allow the chia seeds to soak up liquid for 10 minutes before consuming. Pour over ice and garnish with fresh herbs or fruit if desired.
