Grapefruit Mint Chia Cooler
This is an easy nutrient packed summertime drink that is perfect for those hot Summer days.
- Let your chia seeds plump up in 2 cups of water and set aside.
- Juice the grapefruits and limes into a quart mason jar. If you’re wanting this to be on the sweeter side, or have tart grapefruits, add in the coconut sugar to taste.
- Add in the 2 cups of water with the chia seeds to the citrus juice jar and fill with water until full, just below the lip. Close with a lid and shake well to mix. At this point, you could pour the cooler over ice and enjoy immediately, or let it chill in the fridge for later.
- When serving, garnish with mint leaves a slice of lime or with a grapefruit rind.
