Make Supercharged Energy Drink With Chia Seeds in 30 Seconds

Published

on

Chia is starting to gain real popularity amongst health circles and for good reason. A 100 gram serving of chia seeds is a rich source of the B vitamins thiamine, niacin, riboflavin and folate. All of which are responsible for energy production in the body.

The same amount of chia seeds is also a rich source of the dietary minerals calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, and zinc.

Chia seeds may be added to other foods as a topping or put into smoothies, breakfast cereals, energy bars, granola bars, yoghurt, tortillas, bread, made into a gelatin-like substance or consumed raw. The gel can be used to replace as much as 25% of egg content and oil in cakes while providing other nutrients, making it an incredible versatile energy source.

Wanting to get a little creative? Add pomegranate, berries, coconut water and more … just add your favourite flavours for something a little different and to supercharge your energy drink.

INGREDIENTS (FOR ONE GLASS)
A large lass of cold, filtered or sparkling water
I organic lemon or lime, sliced
1 – 2 tsp Chia seeds
If sweetness is desired add any natural sweetener of your choice – stevia, rice malt syrup, honey, maple or coconut sugar
