A refreshing water made with mint, lime juice, agave syrup and chia seeds. The perfect drink to cool down on a hot summer day or after a sweaty workout.
Hot summer days beg for cool, refreshing drinks. They go hand in hand. It’s vital that you are properly hydrated when the sun is beaming. Sometimes you might not even realize you are thirsty until a big glass pitcher filled with water and lemon is put in front of you.
Typically, people don’t choose water to quench their thirst. Instead they reach for beverages like juices, sodas, or lattes that are highly sugared, empty-calorie drinks. Not only do these drinks cause people to gain weight and put them at a higher risk for diabetes, but they are also filled with ingredients like high-fructose corn syrup or aspartame that cause bone weakening, heart disease or cancer.
