Chia seed cherry limeade

This chia seed cherry limeade is just out of this world. Of course it is vegan, gluten free and most of all, healthy.

I have never added any chia seeds to any of my drinks but to smoothies. I have also used them to add to my energy truffles and bars as well as puddings but never to drinks. From now on I will be experimenting and adding chia seeds to other foods more often.

For this chia seed cherry limeade version I used cherries and limes since it is what I had on hand but you can use lemon, blackberries, blueberries or any other berries of you choice.

My kids actually loved it. I thought they would be grossed out by the chia seeds but they were fine with it. This drink can also be spiked with some alcohol if you like. I might make a margarita version this way next time I made some cocktails!

I am sad that summer is about over. I think this summer went rather fast for me. Between school and all the work I had to do for my cooking book, my short vacation was almost none existent, especially if I compare it to my regular European style vacations which last 1-2 months!

Anyways, I hope you like this drink. Let me know if you get to try it and if you come out with any other versions. I know for sure I will be experimenting with it this fall.

  1. Chia seeds in limeade…an unusual combo, but it works so well!

  2. i have heard so much about chia seed fresca/limeade but never made it.needs to change that.

  3. Will the drink stay liquid or will it gel up?

  4. Given how much I love bubble tea, and since chia seeds are kind of just tiny boba (but healthier)…I think I’d love this!!
