Chia Watermelon Fresca

A refreshing chilled healthy beverage

If you’ve ever had a Mama Chia beverage and enjoyed it, then I think you will love this drink! The chia seeds in this refreshing watermelon beverage add a healthy dose of powerful antioxidants, omega-3s, dietary fibers, as well as complete protein, calcium and magnesium.

So many people are sharing pumpkin recipes this week, but it’s in the 80’s here in New York, and I’m still in denial that summer is coming to an end. I’ve been making this beverage all summer, and thought I would share it with you today – enjoy!
