Try mixing some strawberries, or any berries you have on hand, with some chia gel and cool yourself down with this nutritious snack!

Make your chia gel:
Add 1/3 cup chia seeds to 2 cups water, or adjust for smaller batches. Place in a jar with a lid and shake vigorously. Let sit in your fridge for 10-20 minutes, or until the seeds have plumped up.

Prep your berries:
Rinse, and chop strawberries.

Assemble:
In a bowl, add a few tablespoons of chia gel and mix in chopped strawberries.
