Strawberry-Basil Chia Fresca
Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: Beverage
Serves: 10
  • 1 cup quartered fresh strawberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 8-10 cups water
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 - 3 tablespoons agave nectar, depending on desired sweetness
  1. Add strawberries, basil and water to a large glass pitcher. Pop in fridge overnight.
  2. Strain off strawberries and basil OR transfer water to a spouted jug (if you opt to keep strawberries and basil in, you'll want to drink the fresca through a straw).
  3. In a small bowl, mix chia seeds, water and agave nectar. Let stand for 10-15 minutes. Add to strawberry-basil flavored water and stir vigorously to separate chia seeds.
  4. Store water in fridge for up to 3 days.
