Mexican-inspired Chia Fresca with a sweet and herbaceous twist from the addition of fresh watermelon and mint.
Stir chia seeds and water and set aside for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the mixture thickens and a gel forms.
In the meantime, add watermelon, mint, lemon peel, lemon juice, and salt to a blender. Cover and blend on high 30 seconds, or until liquid forms. Pour in chia water gel, cover, and pulse two times, or until the chia seeds are evenly mixed with the watermelon mixture. Transfer to glasses and garnish with fresh mint leaves if desired.
Store Watermelon Chia Fresca in a pitcher or jar with a lid and refrigerate for up to five days.
