The secrets to achieving blissful serenity and a peaceful existence are often found near the beaches of Malibu. The beautiful coastline that encompasses most of this city creates an atmosphere that allows residents and visitors alike to relax their mind, body, and soul. The crisp ocean air and crashing of the tides makes for a perfect setting to lead a healthy lifestyle, inspiring those who wish to follow a healthy standard of living filled with various forms of exercise, meditation, healthy diet options, and food trends that prove to provide your body with nutrients and vitamins needed to sustain an active life by the ocean.

One of the latest food and health trends has proven itself to be more than a fad and more of a lifestyle revolution that has been welcomed into many restaurants, and that is the Chia Seed. The Chia Seed is an ancient grain valued by both the Aztecs and Mayans for their incredible benefits for both energy and natural healing. These tiny seeds are packed with Omega-3s, calcium, iron, protein, zinc, fiber, and antioxidants so it is no wonder they are sought after. Not only can this seed be eaten and prepared in various dishes, both raw and cooked, but it can also be incorporated into various beverages. In order to create a beverage that maintains the integrity of the Chia seed, it takes someone with knowledge and understanding of the seed and its nutritional benefits.

Our stunning Nobu restaurant on the beaches of Malibu is lucky enough to have a bartender who created such a drink that will not only dance on your palate, but it will soothe your soul! The “Lemon Chia Fizz” was created by Rosie Okumura at Nobu Malibu, and it has already generated media attention. This crisp, clean drink allows you to treat yourself to something divine while still loading yourself with vitamins and nutrients; what more could you ask for?

The Lemon Chia Fizz is made with Meyer Lemon Sake, Chambord, Simple Syrup, Mamma Chia Seeds (Blackberry, Chia seeds, Hibiscus Liqueur), Louis Roederer Champagne, and lemon wedges.
