This little recipe is a a goodie—my own version of Mamma Chia, one of the tastiest chia fresca beverages on the market.
Some of you may remember this recipe. It’s a goodie and my own version of Mamma Chia—one of the tastiest Chia Fresca beverages on the market.
It’s not often that I repost a recipe but I feel this week warrants it. First, this recipe is a great elixir for the hot days we are looking forward to this week (finally!) and second, I am taking some time away from the computer to remember my grandfather. Pop passed away last Wednesday and we will be saying goodbye to him tomorrow. I look forward to some time with my grandmother and family—remembering a man who loved God, loved the game of golf, loved his family, and especially loved his “Everloving”.
- Honey may be substituted with your sweetener of choice. I use a bit of honey and a bit of zero-calorie liquid stevia concentrate. Sometimes I just use stevia.
- Though R.W. Knudsen Just Tart Cherry has no added sugar, it still packs 24g of sugar per 8 fluid ounces. Feel free to experiment with watering this recipe down. For each additional 1/2 cup of water, I’ve been adding an additional tablespoon of chia seed and a couple more drops of liquid stevia.
- This beverage is not intended to be a sole source of hydration. Look at it as a fun drink to add to your day. 2-3 tablespoons of chia a day make a nutritious addition to most diets. More than that probably wouldn’t hurt you. But as with any food, practice moderation. And, chia has that lovely ability of keeping you “regular” … too much and well, we won’t go there. 🙂
