Chia Energizer

This chia seed drink is wonderful for those times when you need a little boost. Using green tea gives you just a bit of caffeine without the full kick of coffee, and the chia seeds give your body some extra nutrients to keep it fueled and running smoothly. This drink is wonderful in the morning, before or after exercising, or to keep you going though a long afternoon.

Ingredients:

1 Pint (16 oz) green tea
1-2 tsp chia seeds
1 tsp lemon juice (optional)
1 tsp honey or other sweetener (optional)

Directions:

Brew your favourite green tea using only two thirds of the usual amount of liquid. Once brewed add the sweetener (if using) and stir in well. Top up your tea with ice cubes and allow the tea to cool before adding the chia seeds and lemon juice. Allow to sit for 1-2 hours (or overnight) for chia seeds to absorb some liquid, though you can drink it right away if you need the boost immediately.
