It's hotting up, summer is in full swing and so plenty of water, berries...and chia seeds have been in pretty much every meal :-) 

The unique hydrating properties of the chia seeds make them perfect for the summer months, add a spoonful to your breakfast cereal, your dessert or your smoothie throughout the day. Use them whole or ground depending on your texture preference.

I recently featured these fruity chia lollies over at including Cake, but I couln't resist sharing them here too. You could swap in other berries if you like, i just particularly liked the red against the yellow. Kiwi slices, or blueberries coud work well too.  Whilst I was at is I thought I'd include a little round up of all things chia...enjoy!

Recipe:  Fruity Chia lollies

Makes 6 lollies

  • 3 tbs white chia seeds (dark will work fine too but won’t look so pretty!)
  • 2 bananas- mashed well
  • 1 tbs maca powder (optional)
  • 1 cup fresh pineapple
  • 1/2 cup broken rasberry pieces- frozen works best
  • 1/2 cup coconut water (or substitute regular filtered water)

  • Blend all ingredients together until smooth, stirring through the raspberry pieces last.
  • Spoon the mixture into lolly moulds and freeze.
