Ersatz Mamma Chia

leave a comment »

I really like the Mamma Chia drinks. I asked The Wife to pick me up a couple of the Cranberry Lemonade today: one I polished off when it arrived, the other as an after-dinner snack. Man! are they tasty!

I was sitting here, wanting another, when it hit me that I could easily make my own. I snagged the empty bottle and poured into it:

1/4 c chia seed
juice of 1 lime (and next time, I’ll use a Meyer lemon)
1/3 c pomegranate juice
fill the jar with white tea

It’s sitting in the fridge now, cooling while the chia seed soak. What a great drink!

UPDATE: Homemade is reasonably good, though not so good as Mamma Chia’s own. The chia seed tend to clump as they soak, so to avoid having to break apart the clumps with an iced-tea spoon as I did, I think next time I’ll just have seeds in to soak separately, in a container, and I can dip up some of the already soaked seeds to add to the drink.
