Chia Seed Drink

I ordered chia seeds in bulk to save money on the expensive price per pound.  I lowered the price per pound from $10 to $6 on Amazon (back when they had free shipping.)

The parts I use is Black Cherry organic juice, Pelligrino water sparkling, chia seeds 2 tbls. Combine these altogether in a bottle and store in the refrigerator for drinks in the morning, anytime you need a refreshment.

The chia seeds are reported to be high in Omega 3s, potassium, fiber, and provide energy- recommended serving = 2 tablespoons per day.  The main vitamins are: A, B1 (Thiamin), B2 (Riboflavin), C (ascorbic acid), E, choline, and Folate (folic acid).     "Chia also contains vitamins B3, B5, B6, B15, B17, D, K, inositol and PABA.   The main Minerals are Boron, calcium, copper, iodine, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, potassium, silicon, sodium, strontium, sulfur, and zinc. It also has amylose and plenty of electrolytes. And they also contain 18 of the 22 amino acids, including all nine essential amino acids."
