A healthier alternative to ordinary lemonade, this version incorporates chia seed which plump up and gel making a filling beverage that works well to crave off hunger and also aids in digestion. The maple syrup adds just a bit of sweetness without being overpowered or overly sugary.
- 2/3 cup lemon juice (for me, this took 4 lemons)
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 4 cups water
- 1 to 2 tablespoons chia seeds (or go crazy)
- Combine lemon juice, maple syrup, and water in a large pitcher (plus two of the leftover lemon halves, if you like).
- Once well combined, add chia seeds and let mixture sit for at least 30 minutes, so the chia seeds plump up. Serve and enjoy!
