Mint Chia Seed Limeade Recipe with Honey

This mint chia seed limeade recipe is sweetened with honey. The chia seed adds a fun texture, the lime adds a nice tangy foundation and the mint adds a cool sensation. 

This mint chia seed limeade recipe is a delicious, fresh and unique drink that I hope you love as much as my family does. My brother Kevin shared this recipe a few years ago and I make it often when I have extra limes or lemons on hand.

I love how the chia seeds make this mint chia seed limeade recipe a cool texture. In Mayan, chia means “strength” and these little seeds pack a lot of nutrients including fiber, protein, calcium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus and some B vitamins.

The mint adds a nice cool sensation to the drink and the lime adds the foundational tangy flavor. A little raw organic honey is used to sweeten the limeade.

Mint Chia Seed Limeade Recipe with Honey

Making it is simple. First, add 1/4 cup chia seeds to 6 cups of water. Mix together and let sit for about an hour so the chia seeds can gel a little. Meanwhile, combine the lime juice, honey and mint in a blender. Add the honey lime mint mixture to the chia water and stir to combine. Enjoy this beverage chilled.

It is normal for the chia seeds and the water to separate so always give it a little stir (or shake if you are storing in a bottle) before drinking. Feel free to garnish with an extra lime wedge and some mint.

Some variation ideas: This recipe can easily be made with lemons instead of lime.

You can just pulse your blender a few times if you want some of the mint leaves to be noticeable in the drink, instead of completely pureed into the limeade.
