Watermelon Lime Chia Fresca

  • Author: Allison
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 2 servings 1x


This watermelon lime chia fresca features homemade watermelon juice that you make in your blender! Water, lime juice, and chia seeds are added to this watermelon juice base to create a hydrating endurance drink


  • 3 heaping cups cubed watermelon
  • 1 cup plus 1/4 cup water, divided
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice


  1. Place the watermelon cubes in a blender. Add 1/4 cup of water and blend until smooth. Strain the puree into a bowl through a fine mesh sieve, discarding the pulp. You should have 1 1/2 cups of watermelon juice. Divide the watermelon juice between two glasses.
  2. Add 1/2 cup of water to each glass to dilute the juice slightly (otherwise your drink will be super sweet). Add 1 tbsp of chia seeds to each glass and stir to incorporate. Set aside to ‘gel’ for about five minutes.
  3. Add 1 tbsp of lime juice to each glass. Chill for a few minutes or enjoy immediately.
