[Foodie Friday Recipe] Cherry Chia Sangria
Enjoy this delicious cherry chia sangria recipe at your next barbecue or summer event!
Most likely you’ve had sangria before – probably on a patio somewhere, some summer evening. Sangria is a light and fruity wine-based cocktail with fruit in it, so it’s no wonder that this tasty beverage is popular at summer gatherings!
If you love sangria, you’ll love this updated twist including dragon fruit* and a healthy superfood – chia seeds, known for providing healthy nutrients like protein, fiber, and Omega-3 fatty acids.
This recipe includes Mamma Chia which you can find at ThriveMarket.com. The cherry-beet flavor is sweet, tart, and perfect for a summer evening cocktail. Just add sparkling rose’ wine, pineapple juice, ginger beer, and your choice of summer fruits, and get ready for a delicious taste treat!
* If dragon fruit is not available in your area, you can also add cherries, pineapple, or other fruits of your choosing.
Note: We do not recommend drinking alcoholic beverages. Most health experts agree that drinking alcohol is not healthy. However, if you are going to drink anyway, you might as well add some healthy super-foods to help boost your antioxidants!
