With a smooth texture from the added ProactivChia seeds, this thirst-quenching bright green-yellow lemonade is ideal for the hottest days of summer, happy hour with friends or a day in the park with the kids! Make a double-batch, because it'll go quick once the kids get a taste of this perfect mix of sweet and citrus. Serve chilled, with plenty of lemon slices.
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup fresh mint
1 tbsp ginger, grated
4 cups water
5 tbsp PRANA organic fair trade cane sugar
3 tbsp PRANA organic whole black ProactivChia seeds
handful ice cubes
In a blender, combine all of the ingredients except the ProactivChia and ice cubes.
Pour the lemonade into a large Mason jar, add the ProactivChia and stir.
Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes and stir again to break up the chia seeds.
Wait another 10 minutes, until the chia seeds have expanded, add ice cubes and serve chilled.
