I made chia seed gel water for the first time, now what do I do with it? Do I just drink it as is or can I do things with it?

Add it to juice or smoothies. I do both. Chugging it plain? If you like, why not.

Once the gel is formed you can do all sorts of things with it-add it to smoothies, puddings, etc. I just made this cereal that was quite good. Since you already made the chia gel, you can either soak the hemp & buckwheat in it or soak them separately.
Chia seeds, Hemp seeds & Buckwheat (soak to form gel)
Goji berries or powder
Optional: Agave, Apple

Here is a recipe I really like from goneraw.com. It's so easy and might be a good one for your needs. Has the taste and texture of rice pudding.
1 T. chia seeds (dry)
1/2 cup nut milk
1-2 T. shredded coconut (I like to grind it to a fine powder)
2 T. raisins
1/8 t. vanilla
1 T. agave or honey
Combine in a jar and shake 4-5 times for the first 30 minutes.
Refrigerate until ready to eat.

I add chopped fruit.
Mostly papaya and golden kiwi

I just eat it plain.
