Directions

1. Combine 1 tbsp. dry chia seeds with 10 oz. water in a small glass or bowl. Chia seeds absorb over nine times their weight in water, making for an effective timed release of water and nutrients later.

2. Stir the mixture gently with a spoon to keep the seeds from clumping together.

3. Allow the mixture to stand for 10 minutes. When chia seeds in water are soaked for at least 10 minutes, they form a gel with the consistency of yogurt.

4. Add 2 tsp. fresh lime juice and 2 tsp. sugar to taste to your chia gel.


Serving Size: 1 10-oz serving
