Kombucha Chia Fresca Margarita
Chia seeds become gelatinous when soaked in liquid, which despite the way that sounds, provides a very pleasant texture perfect for any Chia Fresca.What's a Chia Fresca, you ask?Essentially, it's our take on a refreshing lemonade-type drink with chia seeds.After all, who wouldn't want that extra boost of Omega-3 and fiber that chia adds?Don't stop at lemonade though - when the feeling is right, add the chia to your cocktails (or mocktails) and sip it on a sunny afternoon!
