Iced Chia Green Tea

Iced Chia Green Tea is a super easy, refreshing, and delicious summer drink that’s filled with added nutrients from the chia seeds.

Okay, this isn’t revolutionary. Or a drop-dead delicious recipe.

Rather, I wanted a nice cool drink yesterday afternoon and came up with this idea. And sometimes, I just have to share those ideas when they work out well!

I don’t drink pop/soda, nor bottled juices, and I have to limit my coffee consumption, so afternoon coffee is mostly out of the question. I wanted something fresh, healthy and would cool me down in the scorching heat!

Speaking of healthy…

  • Chia Seeds- are full of healthy omega-3’s, anti-oxidants, packed with vitamins and minerals to keep you feeling full longer and chia is one of the highest plant-based sources of complete protein. 
  • Green Tea- speeds up your metabolism to add in digestion and are packed full of antioxidants like EGCG that regulates and inhibits cancer growth. 
  • Honey- natural sweetener, nature’s energy booster, great immune system builder and is a natural remedy for many ailments. 

So I came up with a little concoction to meet my needs! Nothing too fancy, because I never am, just simple and delicious!

You really don’t need a recipe for this but I thought it’d be so much easier to explain that way!

This would also be great with a little lemon squeezed on top!

    What a cool idea, Britt! The only time I’ve had chia seeds in a drink was in a Mamma Chia (a store-bought brand), and it was quite enjoyable! Do they become gel-like in the tea?

      Thanks! Have you ever tried Kombucha with the chia seeds? That’s kind of where I got the idea. They do become gel-like but it isn’t bad. I like the variation in texture… makes drinking the tea fun!

        I haven’t tried it but I’ve seen the Synergy with it at Whole Foods! Is it any good?

          At first it was a little strange but then I actually ended up really liking it! It’s my favorite type now!

    Oh YUM! I so need to try this! Time to head to the shops tomorrow and grab some more chia seeds. How do they taste in the tea? Do they go slimy?

      You’ll have to try this for sure! They do go a little slimy but it’s personal preference if you like that in your drink. I do because it adds a little variation to the tea and helps fill me up more! Give it a whirl and see if you like it, let me know what you think!
