Marco, my husband got me into this drink.
I’ve never had chia seeds before and didn’t even know if I would like it.
Marco made it one day and I tried it and fell in love with it.
Ever since then we make a big pitcher of it a few times a month.
This drink is great for people who don’t like drinking plain water or who just want to jazz up their water every now and then.
This is actually one of my kids favorite drinks.
She gets excited whenever she smells fresh squeezed lime juice because she knows I’m going to make chia lime water.
I love it when my kids get excited about healthy food!

Is chia lime water healthy?
Yes, it is. Limes are high in vitamin C which is good for your immune system.
The chia seeds are high in fiber and omega 3 fatty acids.
What else can I do with chia seeds?
Chia seeds can be added to smoothies, oatmeal and you can even make chia seed pudding.
How to make it
Measure out your ingredients. The amount of honey used will depend on how sweet you want it.
Add the lime juice to the water and add your desired amount of honey and stir. Add the chia seeds and stir again.
Refrigerate the water for at least half an hour.
The chia seeds will have softened by then.
Then it’s ready to be served.
Make sure to stir it once more before serving because the chia seeds will settle at the bottom of the pitcher.
