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!

The texture of the soaked chia seeds makes drinking water more fun. 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!

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 discarding the fruit and herbs as they have released all of their nutrients and start to go bad.

Steps

1
Done

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.

Done

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.

3
Done

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.
