- 1 tsp maqui powder
- 1 tbsp chia seeds

Originally from China, fresh lychee fruit is only available for a small seasonal window because of its delicate shelf life. What it lacks in toughness it makes up for in Vitamin C, having about 86 percent of our body’s daily requirement in a serving. Lychee is also considered a good natural source of electrolytes. Maqui powder, made from a berry grown in the rainforests of Chile and Argentina, has more antioxidants per serving than most other fruits. Combine these two superfruits with the light, easy taste of both watermelon and pear, and the Omega-3s of chia, and you’ve got a health elixir that goes down deliciously easy.
