Red Raspberry Chia Fresca

Friday, 1st May 2015

Red raspberry leaf tea is not just for pregnant ladies*, this fresca is fruity and refreshing.
Ingredients:
  • 2 Red Raspberry Tea bags
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 ½  tbps Coconut sugar
  • 1 cup Raspberries
  • 1 ½ tbsp Chia Seeds

Method:
  • Start off with brewing your red raspberry tea. I find those big mason jars quite useful and use 2 teabags for a 500ml mason jar. Let it steep for 5 minutes then remove the bags and let it cool before putting it in the refrigerator to cool further.
  • Juice 1 lemon or more to taste.
  • Dissolve 2 tablespoons of coconut sugar in a bit of water.
  • Puree 1 cup of fresh raspberries and then pass it through a sieve to remove the seeds.
  • I then use a SodaStream, adding the brewed tea to the bottle and turning it into a sparkly drink, but alternatively you can just add sparkling water (which will dilute the tea a bit) if you like, or leave it flat if you prefer.
  • Combine the puree, fizzy cold tea, coconut sugar water and lemon juice in the mason jar.
  • Add the Chia seeds at the end, close the top of the jar and start shaking immediately as this will stop them from sticking together. Repeat a few times. They will start to gel and then they may sink to the bottom, shake again before drinking!
 
* IF PREGNANT, SEEK MEDICAL ADVICE BEFORE DRINKING THIS. RASPBERRY LEAF SHOULD BE AVOIDED BY THOSE IN THE EARLY STAGES OF PREGNANCY.
