Lemon Lime Chia Seed Fresca drink recipe is a delicious refreshing drink that just makes you feel better and should be part of any clean eating menu plan.
I have to admit that I include this beverage in my morning breakfast meal because it creates a feeling of being satisfyingly full and I have fewer cravings therefore I eat less. Anything that is good for me, tastes great and inhibits appetite naturally makes me do a happy dance because honestly that does not happen often in my life. Normally, it is me drinking as quickly as possible a kale smoothie and dreading having to do it again.
I know kale smoothies are good for me but they suck in the flavor department. P.S – If you are making a kale smoothie, add apple and carrot to sweeten it up.
