Mojito mocktail season is here! Enjoy this fabulous drink with a dash of chia seeds for an extra boost of omega-3 fatty acids to support good cholesterol!
Fun With Food
In a jar or container with lid, mix together 3 T of chia seeds and 1 cup of water. Stir together vigorously for about 30 seconds.
Allow this mixture to sit in your refrigerator overnight. In the morning, your chia seed mixture will be similar to a gel-like consistency.
When chia seed mixture is ready, add to a medium sized bowl, then add and mash blueberries, raspberries, and mint leaves with a fork into the chia mixture(it’s okay if it’s still thick!)
Portion fruit/chia puree into cups and add ice on top.
Pour kombucha over the ice and squeeze a little bit of lime and mix.
Garnish with mint and lime and enjoy!
