Delicate hibiscus flowers, juicy berries, and sweet honey mingle with the power of nutrient-packed chia seeds for a guilt-free summer treat.
Last week, I wrote about the amazing benefits of chia seeds. (You can check out the card I made here!) They're packed with healthy protein and fiber, and adding them to your diet is proven to improve digestive health, boost endurance, and catalyze weight loss.
This refreshing fruity drink provides a natural source of long-lasting energy, while soothing mucus membranes in the digestive system to help treat acid reflux and ulcers. Give it a try; your body will thank you for providing its daily dose of chia, and your mouth will thank you for the yumminess!

1 handful fresh or frozen berries
2 tablespoons raw honey
3 to 4 tablespoons organic chia seeds
1. Make a quart (4 cups) of tea using hibiscus tea (and supplementary hibiscus flowers, if you prefer a more intense floral flavor). Stir in honey while tea is hot. Let cool completely in a large mason jar the fridge.
2. When tea is completely chilled, mash the berries and stir them into the infusion. Add chia seeds and mix well. Let the seeds soak for at least an hour to allow them to gel.
