Cucumber & mint: slice the cucumber and tear off the mint leaves and add them to an empty bottle. Add a tablespoon of chia seeds, fill with water and shake well.

Lemon & pomegranate: Slice the lemon and add them to the second bottle with pomegranate seeds and a tablespoon of chia seeds. Fill with water and shake well.

Crushed blueberries: Smash some fresh blueberries with a pestle and mortar or just with a fork. Add to the third bottle with a tablespoon of chia seeds. Fill with water and shake well.
