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. Another chia favorite of mine is my Kale Banana Chia Hemp Superfood Smoothie.

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!

  2. Curious how this comes out to only 6 calories?

  3. This is so interesting idea. I never tried any beverages like this before. I will make it myself to taste. Thank you!

  4. Looks amazing. We are just hitting spring so it's perfect timing.

  5. What a great recipe! I'm gonna try this as soon as we have watermelon again! Looks so great! *-*

  6. I can actually get my husband…who eats such a crappy diet…to drink kombucha with chia seeds? Go figure!? What else could we substitute for the watermelon going into the fall??? I love this recipe by the way…thanks! Anything to sneak the omegas and other good things into the fam's diets!!! He's still wondering what those Mama Chia squeeze snacks in the fridge are all about…lol.

  7. That looks yummy, easy to make and — with all the antioxidants and minerals –definitely healthy. I'll be making this one for me and my boyfriend tomorrow! 🙂

  8. I am looking forward to trying this. I just bought a big bag of chia seeds at Costco. I can't figure how you got the 4 points though. According to my tracker, 1 Tbsp of chia seeds is only 1 point and the watermelon would be counted as 0.

  9. I would have never thought of this! Such a great healthy and deliciously refreshing drink!!

  10. Tried it this morning and I've already shared it on Facebook. This is awesome!!! Thank you for the recipe!

  11. Looks fantastic for a warm summer day!

    Do you know that watermelon is good for potency due to citrulline?! So, don't be selfish and share Chia Watermelon Fresca with your boyfriend 😉

  17. So Summery! Why let go of the feel-good fresh drinks when it's still time before we wrap ourselves up in thick blankets. This looks amazing 😀 It's getting chilly outside, but I still have time for a good few glasses of this stuff, yum! x

  18. Watermelons are still in stock at the stores here and reasonably priced, so this looks like a perfect way to squeeze every last bit out of Summer! I love the addition of chia!

  19. Looks delicious and refreshing! Still warm here as well, so I'm still eating like it's summer!

  20. Love chia in drinks – I love the texture they give!

  21. It may be September and a little chilly here in Vancouver, but if I drink this I can pretend it's still sunny & hot! 🙂
