This cranberry raspberry chia lemonade is tart, sweet and filled with nutritious chia seeds for a refreshing and healthy drink.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2 1/4 cups water, divided
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1/2 cup cranberries
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 packet CocoaVia Cran-Raspberry
  • 1 tablespoon agave or sweetener of choice (optional)

Instructions

  1. Add 1 cup of water and chia seeds to a glass or small bowl and stir until well combined. Set aside and let thicken for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, combine 1/4 cup water with the raspberries and cranberries in a small pot. Simmer over medium heat until broken down and liquid has cooked off, about 10-15 minutes. Transfer mixture to a fine mesh strainer and over a bowl, push fruit mixture through strainer so you extract the juice but not the pulp. Set juice aside.
  3. Add juice mixture, lemon juice, remaining 1 cup water, CocoVia, chia seed mixture and optional sweetener to a pitcher. Stir until well combined.
  4. Serve or chill then serve.
