Packed with fiber, protein, antioxidants and healthy fats, this energy drink is perfect right before your next workout!
I was in the grocery store last week and I noticed the chia drinks like Synergy and Mama Chia. I always pick them up, read the ingredients, check the price and put it back on the shelf. They are expensive! And some of them have unnecessary additives like sugars and colors. So I decided to make my own which was super easy and ridiculously CHEAP!
You guys know I love my chia seeds. They are so ridiculously good for you. I am also on a blood orange kick these days. You can use the juice of whatever fruit you like. And this has no added sugar (besides the natural sugar in the orange!) I steeped my favorite Yogi Green Tea Kombucha for this drink but I have also used Numi Mate Lemon which also tasted delicious. I only drink green tea and no coffee so the small amount of caffeine from the green tea will give me that energy boost to help me through my run or my insanely difficult Bar Method class!
