CHIA DRINK RECIPE

This orange chia drink couldn’t be any easier to make.  You’ll be soaking chia seeds in water mixed with orange juice for 20-30 minutes (you can soak them overnight as well).  While soaking, these tiny seeds will absorb the liquid and will expand and produce a gelatinous substance similar to tomato seeds which will thicken the drink a bit.
