Bamboo straws - a natural alternative to plastic straws

The recipe for a drink made of coconut water, lime and orange juices, chia seeds and mint is very simple and requires no special skills.

Oranges are available in shops all year round, but the juice of these fruits will be the most delicious in winter, especially in December when they are in season. The drink is therefore very versatile, refreshing in summer, and providing many valuable vitamins and minerals in winter. I recommend adding honey to your drink in winter, and even a little white rum or gin in the evening.


400 ml of coconut water

3-4 teaspoons of chia seeds

juice from 1 orange

1 lime juice

fresh mint

optional - honey, rum, gin, ice


In a glass vessel (I recommend a wide infusion bottle) mix coconut water, orange and lime juice and chia seeds. Add the mint leaves, close the bottle and set aside in the fridge for 2 hours for the chia seeds to swell well. It is a good idea to shake the bottle from time to time.

We pour the finished drink into glasses, which we can additionally fill with citrus slices and ice.

Such drinks and drinks are pleasantly sipped through a straw, it is a peculiar ritual. However, for the sake of the environment, choose natural straws! The first straws (this is where their name probably comes from) were straw tubes, environmentally friendly and fully biodegradable. Unfortunately, in the era of plastic, they were replaced by colorful and fancy plastic tubes.

Fortunately, plastic straws have been banned in the European Union. Today, drinking tubes and straws come in different varieties, from disposable paper straws to reusable, glass, metal or bamboo straws.

Świetny pomysł na zimowy drink, wygląda obłędnie. Słomek babmbusowych używam od dawna, nie lubie plastiku

Wygląda bardzo kusząco. Na weekend muszę kupić produkty i zrobię sobie taki napój😊 Bambusowych słomek chyba nie widziałam. Na pewno poszukam, bo papierowe przy dzieciach to masakra
