This was my first time using chia!!! Chia seeds are pretty easy to buy these days, either in supermarkets or online. Their carbohydrate content is almost entirely fiber, making them a “free” food for low carbers.

How to Make a Raspberry Chia Drink

Chia seeds DO need some advanced planning, but it isn't complicated! Simply mix water and chia together in a bowl, cover, and leave overnight. By the morning the seeds will have absorbed some of the water and had taken on a sort of frogspawny appearance.

Make a quick puree by simmering raspberries, a couple of tablespoons of water and a little bit of sweetener together. Both fresh or frozen raspberries work well for this recipe. At this point you could strain the puree but my feeling is that in a chia seed drink it really doesn't matter if there are raspberry seeds in there too!

Leave the puree to cool, then mix together the chia and water mixture. For a longer drink you may like to add more water.Raspberry Chia Drink - a refreshing low carb drink that is high in fiber

 

Chia seeds have such a funny texture but I find strangely addictive! What do you think?
