Recently chia seeds have been really popular that several friends recommend it to me. It is gluten free, high in fiber, antioxidants, protein, omega-3, but low in calories. All in all, it is a super health food.
I like to add chia seeds to my drinks. Those tiny seeds are almost flavorless so that they pretty much go with everything.
I bought some cute and beautiful fresh lemons from local farmer’s market. I make lemonade with them and add chia seeds. And it is awesome! O(∩_∩)O~
3/4 to 1 cup sugar
3 to 4 tablespoons chia seeds
6 to 8 cups of water
Roll the lemons on a board for a few seconds. It helps to make more lemon juice. Cut each lemon in halves. Use a citrus squeezer to squeeze out the lemon juice.
3 lemons can make 1/2 to 2/3 cup lemon juice.
Heat 1 1/2 cups of water until it boils. Add sugar. Whisk until sugar dissolves. Allow the simple syrup to cool down to room temperature.
In a large bowl, mix lemon juice, simple syrup, remaining water and chia seeds with a whisk.
Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
Thinly slice 1 lemon.
Stir in ice cubes, mint, and lemon slices.
It is the taste of summer! O(∩_∩)O~
