Watermelon Chia Seed Lemonade

Watermelon Lemonade | Frankly Entertaining

I’m going to let you in on a not so secret little secret: I’ve never had a drink of alcohol. That’s not really anything special, but it means that I’ve never had a hangover. Well I’ve been spending this week recovering from our Spring Break last week, and I feel like it’s been a two week long hangover! After a road trip with 6 sick people, we need to stock up on extra vitamins.

Since this is the first day of Spring, I thought it would be the perfect time to post a vitamin packed bit of sunshine, and if you happen to be in an area of the country that’s still covered in snow, this should get you thinking of sunnier days! The watermelon tempers the sourness of the lemons and everyone is raving about chia seeds, so I added them in. You can’t taste the seeds, but a little extra healthy never hurt anyone!

*So, Colleen left a comment asking about the benefits of Chia seeds. I’m not going to lie, I originally did this because I read that Chia seeds were an aphrodisiac, and I was imagining a Valentine’s post, but I’ve done a little more research, and I’ve found that chia seeds curb your appetite, the lower blood pressure, and there is so thought that it might also help with diabetes. Not bad for a little seed!
