Why travellers prefer Blue Cross
Chia seeds are certainly popular among foodies and nutrition buffs. Packed with nutrients, they can easily be used in almost any recipe, and bring an interesting consistency to liquid beverages. When you soak chia seeds, they expand and take on a slightly gelatinous texture, somewhat like tomato seeds or tapioca. This quality of chia seeds is what gives chia fresca, a drink popular in Central America, its surprising texture.
Refreshingly nutritious, flavourful and very original, this drink is sure to please!
