A refreshing and nutrition-packed drink perfect for anytime of year. Can easily substitute a different tea or juice instead of the ones listed.
- Combine warm water and 2-3 teabags (depending on how strong of a green tea flavor you want in your drink) in a heat safe glass. Let steep for 3-4 minutes, or until tea flavor is pronounced. Stir in as much sweetener as you like (keep in mind how sweet your pomegranate juice is. You can always add more later) along with chia seeds. Stir thoroughly so that no chia clumps remain.
- Let chia green tea mixture gel for several hours to overnight. The result should be very thick and pudding like. This step is important, if you don’t allow chia seeds to gel then the chia seeds in your final drink may not be evenly distributed.
- Combine thickened chia gel and pomegranate juice together in a pitcher and stir or whisk well until mixed thoroughly. Can also be made ahead of time. Makes 4 cups.
