The ultimate beverage for yogis and yoginis everywhere! This recipe by Akshata Sheelvant of Jeeva will hydrate, energize, provide cleansing fiber for the digestive system and omega fatty acids for lubricated joints and flexibility. Every yogi will tell you to avoid a heavy meal right before yoga class. This recipe offers a nice boost of energy and nutrition all the while being light in the tummy. The sweet, sour, and salty flavor combination and hydrating aspect is also thought to bring balance to the Ayurvedic dosha type Vata. Enjoy this healthful drink and have a wonderful yoga session!


  • 2 tbsp soaked Chia Seeds
  • Juice of 1 Lime/Lemon
  • 1 tsp pure Maple Syrup
  • 1/4 tsp Himalayan Salt
  • 2 cups Water/Coconut Water

I strongly recommend to soak chia seeds in water for about 2-3 hours as it’s easily digestible and also the nutrients are completely absorbed by the body.

1) Blend all these ingredients in a high- powdered blender like Vitamix and ENJOY! (You can also make this drink without any blender – but chia seeds like to get stuck in your teeth so it’s not a pleasant experience for everyone!)
