Sharing My Favorite Raw Drink

I make this drink for myself nearly every day, so I wanted to share it with you all...


1/2 Lemon, hand-squeezed into a regular-sized glass.
1 Tablespoon Raw Agave Nectar
1 teaspoon Chia Seeds (Optional)

Whisk together with a fork.
Add water to fill the cup.
(Optional) Wait about 3-5 minutes before drinking, and stir again. This gives the chia an opportunity to begin to sprout.

Chia has a nice pudding-like quality once it has begun sprouting. This is useful in making dehydrated cookies/chips, and also if you're missing eating something pudding-like. I suspect that with a nice blender or juicer it could be made into a really good pudding or icecream substitute, but I haven't tried this myself.

A note on agave: I get the Ojio clear agave in the glass bottle usually, which is in the "real raw" category as they say on their site. The Wholesome Sweeteners Raw Agave reaches I believe 112 degrees (you can always call them like I did and find out for yourself), so it depends on your personal beliefs whether you want theirs. It personally doesn't bother me because agave grows in a tropical climate, so I suspect it can reach 112 degrees without it damaging the plant's enzymes, so it doesn't bother me. It's a gray area, and you need to decide for yourself. :-)
