Gorgeous color and perfect drink for a lazy summer afternoon. I love the fruity flavors.
Talking of stay-at-home mom I have a funny incident to narrate. A few years back I was at a friend’s place and she had invited a few people for dinner. As we were getting to know each other, I thought I hit it well with one of the other girls, till she asked me where I worked. I told her I was a stay-at-home mom, and even before I had finished my sentence she had abandoned me for better ‘intellectual’ company. I thought it was hilarious, I don’t think I have every felt the need to define myself or put myself in a box. It’s strange how some people are so quick to categorize you and label you. I am sure I was no use to her as a Linkedin contact….lol! We tend to run in pursuit of who we are that we loose ourselves. I really hope my running is only about chasing my to-do list…
4 cups water
2 tsp hibiscus tea
1 cup blueberries - frozen or fresh
4-6 tbsp sugar in the raw (to taste)
1/4 cup chia seeds
Boil the water and brew some hibiscus tea. Let it cool. Soak the chia in water (takes about 30-45 min to swell up).
Pure the blueberries and strain - so you have nothing but a smooth puree.
Mix the chia, tea, blueberry puree and sugar. Add some ice if you care. Serve chilled.
I just love the color and the taste is refreshing, I love to try different kinds of tea - this recipe is a keeper.
