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
ounces coconut water
tablespoon chia seeds
squeeze fresh lime juice
OPTIONAL: 1/4 diced peaches or strawberries
- Combine all of the ingredients in a glass or jar. Let stand for 5-10 minutes to allow the chia seeds to absorb some of the liquid.
- Drink immediately, or refrigerate until ready to drink.
