This low carb fruity chia tea is a healthy and tasty drink you can easily make at home instead of buying an expensive one at the store. Using fruity herbal tea you can make any variety of flavors you wish!
So rumor has it that chia drinks are expensive. I can’t say that I’ve ever bought one seeing as they seem so easy to make yourself. I thought this would be a fun thing to try with some of the many Steeped Teas I bought from my friend Debbie. I am definitely doing a post on different things you can do with tea as I drink tea morning, noon and night. This is just one example of how you can use these delicious, calorie free teas.
The tea I choose was called Berry Mania Fruit Tea. It contains elderberries, currants (currants, sunflower oil), hibiscus, beetroot dices and natural flavors. It looks, smells and tastes great. Plus it has no caffeine so I can drink it all day and not worry about it affecting my sleep. So I make it often.
I have a lot of Steep tea and if you like loose leaf teas, you should check them out. This is not a sponsored post, nor do I get any commission if you buy some but I truly believe in the product. I currently have over 10 bags of teas and have bought numerous bags over the years. They have some really unique flavors!
How to make a chia drink
The recipe is quite simple. Just add 3 tablespoons of chia seeds (affiliate link) to 1 cup water. Mix and refrigerate till the seeds start to gel the water. This should take about an hour.
Next mix 1 cup of fruit flavored tea with half of this chia mixture and a little sweetener. I like to use Torani sugar free syrups but you can use stevia, Splenda or whatever you like to use.
Shake it well before drinking. This recipe makes at least 2 big glasses of tea but you could probably stretch the chia seeds and make the drink thinner if you wish. You could do this with any kind of tea or juice. It simple, delicious and healthy and a good dose of fiber and omega 3’s!
So next time you want a refreshing and healthy drink, try one of these fruity chia tea drinks. They taste great, fill you up and you can feel good about drinking it! The nutrition for 1 drink is:
