Infused chia seed water is all the rage these days!
But most importantly, it has helped me drink more water throughout the day.
Chia seeds are a good source of fiber, antioxidants, iron, calcium, and believe it or not, contains protein!
You can use either white or black chia seeds. The only difference between the two is its color.
The texture of the soaked chia seeds makes drinking water more fun.
Once the chia seeds have soaked in water, they gel up.
It’s also visually really pleasing to the eye.
To make it even more interesting, I add slices of fruit and/or herbs! My favorite three flavor combos are below!
Add any fresh fruit you have on hand.
As the fruit sits in the water is slowly releases some of its nutrients.
You can leave your fruits and herbs in your glass all day and simply refill with filtered water and add more chia seeds.
At the end of the day, I recommend eating or discarding the fruit and herbs as they have released all of their nutrients and start to go bad.
Snap a photo of your infused chia seed water creation and share it with me via Instagram!

This one is great for hot summer days and is great if you like your water with some sweetness.
Adding oranges to your water helps to boosts your metabolism, flushes toxins from your system, and has shown to improve your mood! I can attest to that.
Strawberries are full of vitamin C and also contains anti-inflammatory ingredients.
