Raspberry Chia Seed Lemonade


Pinterest. How I love to hate you. Case in point being that the second I saw this recipe online, I HAD to make it. I mean, come on. Raspberry lemonade for one is delicious. Then add in some chia seeds and coconut water. Perfection. Now, if you are a texture person, this might not be for you. You could omit the chia seeds completely to avoid the tapioca-ish feel of this. But I for one am a strong advocate of the chia. With the 3-day weekend behind us, it is officially summer time. And what's summer without some homemade lemonade?!

Raspberry Chia Seed Lemonade

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 2 cups coconut water
  • 4 tbsp. chia seeds
  •  1/2 cup lemon juice
  •  1 tbsp. honey

Place the raspberries in a food processor (or muddle by hand) until smooth. Add the pureed raspberries, lemon juice, coconut water, and chia seeds into a large pitcher or mason jar. Shake well until combined. Place in the fridge and allow the chia seeds to absorb some of the liquid, becoming soft, for at least 30 minutes. Drink cold. Can be stored in the fridge for up to 1 week.
