Long before chia seeds became a health trend, it has been a staple food for the Mayans & Aztecs since ancient times. In fact, in the Mayan language ‘chia’ means strength, & Aztecs considered the seeds more valuable than gold! Try out this simple lemon drink with chia seeds, or ‘agua de limón con chia‘ in Spanish!
- 8 pieces of lime

- 1 liter of water
- Sugar, to taste

Pre-soak the chia seeds in 2 cups of water until gelatinous. Cut the lemons and squeeze the juice to the cup of water and chia seeds. Add sugar to taste, and ice cubes if you wish. Serve cooled!
