With the beautiful spring weather having arrived, many are taking full advantage, spending time outdoors and active. It’s important when you’re active for more then a few hours to give your body something to keep it performing the best it can, and this drink is just the thing!
Chia seeds have received a lot of attention in the last few years, and for good reason. They’re packed full of many beneficial components for our bodies. They’re very high in dietary fibre, good fats, antioxidants, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and manganese, while also being a good source of protein and a number of other minerals.
This drink is simple to make and delicious to drink. Keep a batch in your fridge so it’s convenient to grab for when you’re running out the door!
Triple Citrus Electrolyte Drink
- 1 orange
- 1 lemon
- 1 lime
- 1 tbsp honey or other liquid sweetener
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1⁄8 tsp unrefined salt
Heat a small amount of water until quite warm, but not boiling, and mix 1/4 cup in a jar with your honey and salt, and stir until dissolved.
Squeeze in the juices of all three citrus fruits, add your chia seeds and then top up with approximately three cups of cool water. Taste and add more water if it’s a bit too strong for you.
Place mixture in the fridge for a few hours or overnight until cooled.
