Chia seeds have been used for generations as a prized superfood. Today, chia seeds are often enjoyed in a light, refreshing fresca, meaning fresh in English. Fresh is the perfect way to describe this omega-3 packed beverage! Add chia to freshly juiced orange and carrot and the seeds will form a gelatinous coating within minutes, making it easy to get your fill of these nutritious little seeds. Two tablespoons of chia seeds will start your day off right by adding 10g of fiber to your daily intake goals!
