Chia cherry summer cooler

Healthy cool drinks are great for the summer. They help keep your internal body temperature down, which will keep you comfortable when it’s hot and save money on expensive air conditioning bills.

Cherries are in season during the summer months, which make them great for this drink. Fresh, organic and seasonal foods are the best ingredients. Cherries have potent anti-inflammatory benefits. Inflammation is one of the main causes of general pain, and chronic inflammation is a major risk factor for serious diseases, including many types of cancers. Let’s take a look at the rest of the ingredients in the chia cherry summer cooler.

Chia seeds:
Chia seeds add a nice texture to this drink, and benefit the gut as well. One ounce of chia seeds, contains 10.6 mg of dietary fiber, which is 42 percent of the recommended daily value. They are high in omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants, which help reduce disease-causing inflammation. Chia seeds have also shown benefits in lowering cholesterol and boosting energy levels.

Lemon juice:
It is high in vitamin C, which helps strengthen the immune system, and also flushes out toxins by acting as a diuretic. The acids in organic lemon juice help regulate the pH levels of the body. Lemons contain compounds called limonins, which have been shown to fight many types of cancers.

In a pitcher stir the following:
2 tbsp of chia seeds
2 cups of cherries, pits removed and juiced
2 tbsps of lemon juice
Finish the drink with 3 ice cubes and 1 tbsp of chopped fresh mint

Make sure ingredients are organic
