No need to grind the chia seeds at all -- just soak them for 10 mins to several hours before adding them to your blended drink. I seem to get better results soaking them in water rather than juice.
I love chia seeds as well. I used to soak them in water, but then found Dave's GT kombucha, which is filled top to bottom with chia seeds. For me, that's the way to go!
