Healthy Chia Seed Detox Drink

I’ve got an amazing healthy detox Chia Seed drink to share with you all and it’s super easy to make! If you’re like me and all you drink is water and tea half the time, then you’ll be happy to know that chia seeds will help spruce up your average drink! I hope you enjoy this detox drink recipe as much as I have been!


Background on Chia Seeds: The name “Chia” actually comes from the Mayan word for “Strong“. Chia Seeds were an important staple for the Aztec and Mayan diets and would help sustain their warriors for a long days journey with just one handful…Crazy isn’t it! Why Chia Seeds are amazing for you? Well first off their fun to eat because they provide a crunch to your oatmeal, smoothies etc. or you can soak them to make them a jelly consistency which is kind of like a healthy version of bubble tea when added to drinks. Now for the health facts… Chia Seeds are a Superfood because they are high in antioxidants, dietary fiber, healthy omega 3’s, and protein! Did you know that Chia Seeds have more omega 3 oils than flax seeds? They also last longer because they are super high in antioxidants that they preserve themselves and you don’t have to grind them up to absorb the omega oils just eat them whole! And because they create a gelatinous effect when added to water or digested they cleanse your insides by collecting toxins on their way out! This is why Chia Seeds are an amazing detox and weight loss food.

Chia Seed Detox Drink


  • 2-3 Tbsp. Chia Seeds
  • 2 Cups Organic Juice
  • 2 Cups or more of filtered water
  • A medium size bowl
  • A large glass or BPA Free bottle

How To:

  1. Add your Chia Seeds to your bowl and slowly start to add 1/2- 3/4 cup of warm water while stirring until the Chia Seeds have absorbed all the water.
  2. Next place in your fridge overnight to really get that “gelatin” effect.
  3. Next, in your large water bottle take as many spoonfuls of the soaked Chia Seeds as you like and then add in your juice and water to dilute the pure fruit juice. This recipe is great because you can adjust it to your taste buds and add as many or as little Chia Seeds as you’d like depending on how you like the texture.
  4. Shake everything up and enjoy! I hope you are addicted to this chia seed detox drink as I am!

What else can I use Chia Seeds for?

Chia seeds a very light nutty taste so they will compliment almost any dish you add them to. I enjoy mine in oatmeal, cereal, yogurt, baked goodies and even in hot savoury dishes! You can also make a natural healthy jello or pudding which I will have an upcoming recipe for.

Thanks for stopping by, please give this post a THUMBS UP! if you found it helpful:)

      • Not at all. I use to be so constipated until I researched natural ways to rid this deadly condition. It was then I found chia cleanses the entire internal body and has a mild laxative effect if taken 1-3 times per week initially. However I found that one must pay attention to water consumption as these seeds are like a sponge. They need lots of water to do the job. In addition one can become very dehydrated to the point of hospitalization so be purposeful when you consume it meaning pay attention to drinking about 11/2 – 2 liters of plain clean water.
        On the days after pay attention to fruits and vegetables in their raw state giving the body enough material to build chlorophyll to replenish the intestinal walls after it has worked. Your body will really thank you for this mild cleansing.
        Point of interest: I use a tablespoon full blend and consume in a fresh cup of juice I made ( Granny Smith apple is my favorite because it is recommended for use in healing and cleansing concoctions) it’s a great internal scouring agent in the unsoaked state.

      • I’ve never had issues but I wouldnt go crazy with them. Maybe just start with 1 tsp a day and see how you feel.

  4. Licking fingers or touching the mouth when doing recipes is a big turn off. I suggest that not be done. Otherwise, thanks for demonstrating the basics of this drink recipe.
