A cool refreshing drink...on a cold fall day?

November 13, 2009

I tried a new drink today and I just had to share.

It's called Chia Fresca and you can find the recipe on the blog Kristen's Raw. I wrote down the recipe months ago when she posted it because it seemed interesting, but I did not have chia seeds. I actually had never even tried them before.

But I just bought some chia seeds last week, and I happen to have a bag full of grapefruit that I did not know what to do with. And this is what I made:

It's cool, refreshing and... I know, it's not summer here anymore. I sure wish I would have tried it a few months ago when it was still warm outside. And I can honestly say, that you don't taste the sour of the grapefruit in this drink. Not one bit! Not a fan of chia seeds, or just don't have them? Then just make it without. You'll still be surprised by this juice.

At least now I know what to do with the other 6 grapefruits that are in my fridge!

OK, maby the next recipe I share with you will be something... um... warmer. I promise!

Where did you get the Chia seeds? On line? I've been really interested in trying them.

They were at my local health food store. They are the brand Natural Factors and it's a BC company. Got it on sale too, gotta love that!
