Strawberry Chia Agua Fresca
A kid friendly Strawberry Chia Agua Fresca is my suggestion for your next grilling party or to offer a refreshing drink to your family this holiday season.
- 16 fresh strawberries
- 2 yellow lemons
- 6 cups of fresh cold water
- Sugar or sweetener to taste optional
- 2 tablespoons of chia seeds
- 1/2 cup of warm water
- 6 nasturtium flowers
- 2 cups of crushed ice
Clean 10 of the strawberries by removing the stem and cutting them in halves. Juice the yellow lemons and combine with the strawberries.
Add the strawberries halves with the lemon juice in the blender and add 6 cups of fresh water.
Sweeten to taste, you can use sugar, raw sugar, agave nectar or sugar free sweetener such as stevia.
In a small bowl add the warm water and soak the chia seeds until plumped (aprox. 5 minutes)
To serve the agua fresca add crushed ice, 1 tablespoon of plumped chia seeds, pour the strawberry lemon mix and garnish with a whole strawberry and a nasturtium flower.
