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”.

Easy and Tasty Chia Fresca Recipe

Easy and Tasty Chia Fresca Recipe


  • 1/2 cup no sugar added tart CHERRY JUICE (like R.W. Knudsen)
  • 1 cup WATER
  • 3 tablespoons white CHIA SEED
  • 2 tablespoon liquefied HONEY
  • 2 tablespoons fresh LIME JUICE


  1. Mix all ingredients in a Mason jar and refrigerate overnight.


  • 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. 🙂
