JUICING | Chia Seed Strawberry Lemonade

I love Chia Seed Lemonade! Especially when I’m doing a lot of Detoxing, or Juicing. It’s not only refreshing, but also a really great source of fiber, and a nice boost of plant-based Essential Fatty Acids!

Chia Seeds

Chia Seeds have a pretty mild flavor – so they’re easy to add to things, and usually take on the taste of whatever you’re adding them to – like, Puddings, Smoothies, etc. A 1 Tablespoon Serving also contains about 2,200 mg of Omega-3 Fatty Acids (Alpha Linolenic Acid), and 700 mg of Omega-6 Fatty Acids (Linoleic Acid).

Lemon & Filtered Water

I always use clean, Filtered, Reverse Osmosis Water, and lots of Lemon – which is rich in antioxidants like Vitamin C, and is great for your Liver & Kidneys! I also like to add-in a variety of other fruit too… not only for the taste (and pretty colors it turns the water), but also for the extra vitamins & minerals.

Strawberries

I’ve included Strawberries in this recipe since they’re pretty much my go-to – they’re available year-round, also rich in Vitamin C, and Antioxidants – and I always have them in my freezer for Smoothies! While I love fresh, they can be pricey – so, I often opt for Frozen Organic Strawberries because they’re usually cheaper. In my opinion, Whole Foods, Costco & BJ’s usually have the best tasting Frozen Organic Fruit, if you’re in the market for that.

Stevia

For a hint of Sweetness, and to take the edge off – I also add a dash or two of Organic Stevia. It’s a great, low-glycemic alternative to Sugar, & a way better alternative to artificial sweeteners. This is really helpful if your fruit isn’t in season, or isn’t as sweet as you’d like it to be! Easy fix!

Mason Jars

FYI: You can also use any Mason Jars, but I prefer Wide Mouth, so I can get in there to clean them afterwards.

Chia Seed Strawberry Lemonade

Recipe Makes a Quart. If you want a Pint, just 1/2 it!

How To Make It

  1. Wash your Fruit thoroughly, rinse & pat dry. I like to soak my (fresh) Berries for a few, even if they’re Organic.
  2. To get the most Juice from your Lemon – firmly press and roll it (back and forth) on the countertop a few times. Cut it in 1/2, and juice it. Remove all of the seeds, and pour it into the Jar.
  3. For Fresh Strawberries – remove leaves and stems before adding to the jar. If frozen, just drop them into the Jar.
  4. Next, add the Chia Seeds, and fill the Jar up with Filtered Water, leaving a little room at the top for them to expand.
  5. Add a Stevia to Taste.
  6. Put the lid on tightly & shake it well – to evenly distribute them (otherwise they’ll clump).
  7. Refrigerate for a few hours, or overnight – giving them enough time to fully hydrate and “bloom”. You’ll know by how tender they are. If you’re leaving it overnight – I usually remove the Strawberries right before drinking the next day because they tend to loose most of their color.
  8. Add a Straw & Enjoy!

Swaps & Variations

I’ve made this so many different ways, and like to use whatever I have at the moment!

For the Citrus I’ve tried…  Lemons, Limes, & Oranges. And, I’m sure you can try Grapefuits too. I haven’t yet. And, instead of Strawberries you can try: Blueberries, Raspberries, Blackberries, Cranberries, Cherries, Peaches, Mangos, Pineapple, Kiwis, Red Dragonfruit… your options are endless!

    Thank you for this healthy recipe! I’m going to make it tonight when I get home. I’ve been trying to watch my diet lately so I only eat gluten free and organic products that I get from the website marocorganic.
    Thanks again
