Raspberry and chia green tea lemonade

Enjoy this fruity raspberry and chia green tea lemonade. It’s so refreshing!

Ingredients:

2 ¼ cups cold water

3tbsp The Chia Co chia seeds

2 green tea bags

125g fresh raspberries

Juice of 2 lemons

2tbsp honey or agave nectar if vegan

Method:

Combine 1 cup of water with 3 tablespoons of chia seeds and set aside.

The seeds need 2 hours as a minimum to gel so do this in advance, the day before if possible.

Steep the green tea bags in 1 cup of boiling water for 2-3 minutes. Discard teabags and leave to cool.

To make the raspberry purée, combine the raspberries in a saucepan with ¼ cup water and bring to a simmer over a medium heat.

Mash the raspberries with a fork.

Sieve the raspberries, collecting as much juice as possible. Discard the raspberry pulp.

Combine raspberry juice, green tea, honey and chia gel in a large jug. Feel free to add more/less sweetener to taste.

Serve over ice. Enjoy!
