Raspberry Chia Lemonade

Ingredients

  • 1 cup purified water
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 green tea bags steeped in 1 cup water and cooled
  • 1 cup raspberries boiled with ¼ cup water
  • juice of 2 lemons, about ½ cup
  • ¼ cup honey or other sweetener of choice, possibly more to taste

Instructions

Gel Chia Seeds:

  1. Combine 1 cup purified water with 3 tablespoons of chia seeds.The chia seeds need several hours to gel, so do this ahead of time, the day before if possible.

Steep Tea:

  1. Steep green tea bags in 1 cup of hot water for 2-3 minutes. Discard tea bags and let cool.

Make Raspberry Puree:

  1. In a saucepan, combine raspberries with ¼ cup water and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Mash raspberries to release their juices. Strain through a fine mesh sieve and mash out as much juice as possible. Discard raspberry pulp. Combine the raspberry juice with the green tea.

Blend It All Together:

  1. In a small pitcher or bowl, blend together chia gel, raspberry green tea, lemon juice, and sweetener. Add more sweetener, to taste. Serve immediately or chill slightly before serving. Makes 2 servings.
