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.

Lemon & Mint Chia Seed Water

This one is my go-to as I always tend to have lemons and mint at home.

Lemon infused water provides a great source of vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and fiber. Mint helps with digestion, dental health, blood circulation and more.


Orange & Starwberry Chia Seed Water

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.


Cucumber & Basil Chia Seed Water

Cucumber has great skin benefits plus it's full of water which keeps you hydrated all day long. This also helps your body to flush out toxins therefore helps with a healthy complexion!

Basil help with your digestion and can also help cure headaches.

Love to do the flavored waters. Just never thought to add the chia. Will be trying it tonight in my cucumber mint water. Thanks.

Hi! Yes, the chia seeds and herbs are edible but maybe skip the bitter citrus rinds (lemon & orange peel). Chia seeds are incredibly healthy so I definitely recommend eating them.
