Strawberry Chia Lemonade

Today’s Smoothie Sunday is not really a smoothie, but a similarly sweet treat. After a long hike in the valley and ridges of Kuliouou, the boyfriend and I came home and made this frosty Strawberry Chia Lemonade. Featuring the last of the season’s strawberries and a mix of local limes and lemons, it was the perfect way to end a blissful Sunday afternoon!
