- 1 honeydew melon, seeds and rind removed
- 2 cucumbers
- 2 handfuls fresh mint
- 1/2 teaspoon wheatgrass powder
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- Sweetener, to taste
Juice the melon, cucumbers, and mint. Transfer the juice to a quart-sized mason jar or other large container with a lid, add the wheatgrass powder and chia seeds, and shake very well. Taste, and mix in a little stevia (or other sweetener) as desired. Let sit for 10 minutes to allow the chia seeds to swell, shake vigorously to separate any seed clumps, then let sit for 10 minutes longer. The mixture will keep for several days, refrigerated.
In addition to giving chia frescas like this one a beautiful emerald color, liquid chlorophyll is highly alkaline and has the power to help rebuild and replenish red blood cells. If you can find mint chlorophyll drops (where the concentrate is partially derived from fresh mint), they'd make a great addition to this juice.
