This is like lemonade with chia seeds. I am looking for different pre run drinks and foods and this may be a new favorite. I need to go run and try it out. I will note I did not measure my lemon juice just used fresh lemon juice. Read More

This was yummy and healthy. I was disappointed with the sugar so I substituted it with blue agave nectar instead and it tasted fine! Defiantly refreshing for a sip in the garden!! Read More

Easy way to add fiber to your diet. I have a glass nearly every day. Like others I use agave as my sweetener of choice. Thanks for the simple and tasty recipe! Read More
