Chia Fresca

Author Notes: This is truly a natural energy drink if there ever was one! Coconut water is hydrating and full of electrolytes. The chia seeds add protein for a burst of energy, but also aid in digestion. Give it a quick stir before drinking to distribute the seeds, or drink through a straw and enjoy the little “pop” from the chia seeds.Simple Green Smoothies
