  • 700 ml water
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp agave syrup
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 pinch sea salt


  • Combine all the ingredients in a jar. Mix it really well and let it stand for 3-4 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Serve with a slice of fresh lemon or pack in a bottle for to-go. Before drinking shake it all up as chia seeds would have settled at the bottom.


Use coconut water or other fresh fruit juice for variations and added nutrition.
