Sip on this lemon chia fresca, a refreshing lemonade-like drink with chia seeds that’s great for energy and boosting your metabolism. 


  • 12 ounces of cold water*
  • 2 Tablespoons – 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 23 teaspoons chia seeds
  • 56 drops liquid stevia (or 2 teaspoons maple syrup)
  • pinch of cayenne pepper


  1. Combine all ingredients in a glass and let sit for about 15 minutes in the fridge so the chia seeds have a chance to absorb some of the liquid and “gel” up. Enjoy immediately or save for later. Can be made ahead of time as the mixture should last at least 2-3 days in the fridge.


*You can also use coconut water which is rich in potassium and magnesium.
