Watermelon Chia Fresca

  • Prep time 10 mins

Super refreshing, this “fresca” is a take on a popular Mexican beverage where chia seeds are soaked in sweetened lemon/lime water. Instead of water, we are using watermelon and it is delicioso!



  1. This is a tough one folks I know.  Add the watermelon to the blender.
  2. Add the lime juice to the blender.
  3. Add the chia seeds to the blender.
  4. Turn the blender on and puree until smooth.
  5. Let it sit for 10 minutes so the chia seeds gel and it will be ready for the patio!
  6. P.S. I added each ingredient as a step to make it look like this was a substantial recipe.  ?


  • Before juicing the lime you could zest it and add that to the blender as well.
  • Add 1 cup of plain yogurt to make a creamy version.
