So I got this recipe from another blogger and of course I felt the need to tweak it. What else is new, I see recipes as a guide to tweak as I need or want.
Coconut Chia Water
2 cups Coconut water (must be pure without any sugar or other ingredients)
Juice of one lemon/lime/orange/grapefruit/tangerine or a combination of citrus fruit (I love the lemon)
2 Tablespoons Chia Seeds
7 drops pure liquid stevia drops (Sweetleaf is my go-to brand)
Mix it together in a shake bottle (the ones with the ball in it). Let it sit for about 3 hours until the chia seeds are double in size. Let it sit out at room temp.
Sip it with a wide straw.
Chia seeds are high in calcium: In 2 ounces of Chia seeds there is 600 milligrams of calcium as opposed to dairy milk (which I am allergic to) for the same 2 ounces only has 120 milligrams.
