A chia cheers to you this beautiful Tuesday afternoon – I’m taking a break to have an afternoon ‘cocktail’ and wanted to give a cheers to all of you!

I thank you all for reading every day, supporting and encouraging me – my pepper jacks are now award winning – taking the third place prize which I am happy with! I couldn’t have done it without all of you!

Hope you are all enjoying a great afternoon and evening!

My kombucha friends – have you tried the chia yet? I love these!

Congrats on taking third place! That’s amazing! I think you more than deserve first place, but I’m a little biased! 😉 I dont’ have any grape chia kombucha to drink right now, but I’ll cheers you with my water bottle! Congrats again! :)

thank you SO much, Molly! I’m excited with third, really I am – to be among some pretty big blogs that have been around a while, little ol’ me? 😀 next year, first! 😉

Congrats! I was the chia Kombucha but was too chicken to try it. Is it slimey?


6 spabettie November 1, 2011 at 4:44 pm

thank you, Laura! um.. yeah, it kinda is. if you don’t like chia in liquid, I’d probably skip it – I love it, but also appreciate that it is an acquired … texture. 😉

These are so pretty! Congratulations on your recipe.


8 spabettie November 1, 2011 at 4:43 pm

Congrats on the 3rd place ! You should be SO proud!

I have not tried the kombucha chia seeds! Dying to!

p.s. I did see Basil in his costume before, I just thought he would of had it on yesterday too ; )

Congratulations, that is awesome! Glad you’ve got a refreshing drink to celebrate :-)

I haven’t tried the chia drinks – someone told me theyre like bubble tea, texture-wise, and I’m not a fan of it, so I’m too scared to give them a try! I do love the kombucha, though.


13 lindsay November 1, 2011 at 5:35 pm

14 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga November 1, 2011 at 6:03 pm

15 STUFT Mama November 1, 2011 at 6:18 pm

Congrats on third place. :) In my mind you won FIRST! :) Those pepper jacks were amazing!
Haven’t tried this new beverage yet. Hmmm……


16 Shirley @ gfe November 1, 2011 at 7:31 pm

Wonderful news! Congrats, Kristina. :-)

Gorgeous chia drinks to celebrate. Much better than chia pets. 😉



17 Lou November 1, 2011 at 7:45 pm

Awesome work… well done you, enjoy the chia :)


18 Lauren Marie November 1, 2011 at 8:26 pm

I am obsessed with all things chia, especially chia kombucha. I support this post.


19 Nazarina November 1, 2011 at 11:02 pm

This is such a cute cocktail indeed! I would so love to try these chia seeds. It looks like a similar “Tukmuria” seed that we sometimes use in an Indian milk shake.


20 Nichole November 2, 2011 at 5:44 am

Woah, a lot going on in that glass. Reminds me of those old school fruity drinks with full big bits in the them. Going to have to trust you here, but it looks tasty.


21 Allie November 2, 2011 at 7:33 am

That is the funkiest looking drink–I don’t know if it looks tasty or not, haha. Congrats on being an award-winning cook 😀


22 Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning November 2, 2011 at 8:16 am

I am ridiculously addicted to Kombucha, but haven’t had the chia variety. I’m definitely intrigued though!
I need to learn to make my own Kombucha- at almost $4 a bottle, my addiction is making me broke.


23 spabettiemom November 2, 2011 at 11:53 am

Congrat’s on third!!!WooWoo…You should be very proud of yourself Kris..You are always FIRST in my life…love ya…


24 Christin@purplebirdblog November 2, 2011 at 2:36 pm

Congrats, though I feel you were first-place worthy for sure! 😉 Do the chia seeds get stuck in your teeth?


25 sarah (sarah learns) November 2, 2011 at 7:22 pm

i just tried the chia kombucha this weekend. i tried raspberry & grape. grape was waaaaaay better!


26 spabettie November 2, 2011 at 7:43 pm

I love the grape too!


27 hihorosie November 12, 2011 at 11:39 pm

Congrats on your award-winning pepper jacks! Woo hoo!

And i heart kombucha chia. Grape is my fave. Some people have said it’s slimy but I’m so glad I decided to try it because I love the stuff and think it’s fun to drink. :)


28 spabettie November 14, 2011 at 7:45 am

thank you – I was excited to even make it to the top ten!

yeah, the chia! it is definitely not for everyone (Jason tried it once, yuck!) but I love it too… and the grape – YUM!


29 Lauren November 14, 2011 at 6:05 pm

I keep hearing great things about the new chia kombucha! I love the other ones. I just have to get up the nerve and try this one.


30 spabettie November 15, 2011 at 4:32 pm

have you had chia after it becomes gel? it’s not for everyone… I don’t mind the texture but some just can’t… 😀
