Chia fresca (iskiate) recipe


Chia seeds have the interesting property that when they’re left in water for a few minutes, the water begins to gel. Supposedly this is helpful in digestion. Here’s a a recipe for chia fresca (also called iskiate), a popular drink made with chia seeds, water, and lemon or lime.





Ingredients:
•about 10 oz of water
•1 Tbsp dry chia seeds
•a few teaspoons lemon or lime juice
•honey or agave nectar, to taste (optional)


Stir the chia seeds into the water; let them sit for about five minutes. Stir again, and let sit for as long as you like. The more it sits, the more gel-like the seeds and water become. Add citrus juice and sweetener to taste.
