REVIEW: Mamma Chia's Chia & Greens (& GIVEAWAY)

If you've been around my neck of the Interwebs for a while then you probably know Mamma Chia is my JAM! Not only are their products scrum-didily-umptious (and healthy to boot), but they are a local company - located right down the street in Carlsbad! So when I saw FitFluential had an upcoming campaign with them I jumped on the opportunity!

I swear I don't stalk them ;) 

Mamma Chia, the leader of the chia revolution, has created a delicious new beverage that combines the powerhouse of chia with healthy, vibrant greens. Obviously you knew I was totally going to be up for giving this new line a whirl!

Chia & Greens is a flavorful, fun, on-the-go beverage with one of the lowest amounts of sugar and the highest amount of nutrients in the green drinks universe. In fact, each bottle delivers 2500mg of (plant based) Omega-3s, seven grams of fiber, four grams of complete protein, 25% RDA of Vitamin A and 95mg of calcium. You can enjoy it as a kick-start to your day, as a revitalizing mid-afternoon pick-me-up or anytime you want that feeling of rejuvenation!

The beverages are perishable so they arrived in a make-shift cooler. I also got a ton of other Mamma Chia products with the delivery (which I was NOT expecting, but boy oh boy were they much appreciated!). 



I received each of the four flavors offered in the new Chia & Greens line 

Check out the loot! I told you I was one lucky lady!

Seeing as I have had most of the other products that showed up on my doorstep before [feel free to read my last review HERE to learn more about those delicious products], I dove into the Chia & Greens right away. 


Let me start off by saying that although I am a vegetarian, veggies are not the only thing I eat. In fact, there are a few that I downright HATE. And, truth be told, some of them are green... So I was a little nervous that the dreaded cucumber may show up in some of the drinks and I would be forced to hand them over to the hubby to finish. Thankfully that was NOT the case! Although they are super healthy, I didn't think they had that "green" taste that some health beverages can have (you know what I mean, right?! the flavor like you just went outside and licked the grass...). 


This fresh, new line combines the nutritional powerhouse of chia with vibrant greens, offering category-leading nutrition with great-tasting flavors to create a super yummy beverage. Chia & Greens is available in four tasty flavors:

  • Soulful Greens (Cayenne and Lemon)
  • Love Greens (Beet and Ginger)
  • Grateful Greens (Kale and Mint)
  • Joyful Greens (Ginger and Lemongrass)

Each of the four invigorating beverages is bursting with nutrient-rich chia seeds and organic power veggies, including kale, spinach, broccoli, spirulina, barley grass, and wheatgrass. Chia & Greens is perfect for souls of all ages; athletes and weekend warriors; corporate climbers and mountain climbers; as well as anyone else who seeks to Seed their Soul. And, just like all of their products, Mamma Chia’s new green drinks are Non-GMO, gluten-free, Kosher and USDA Certified Organic. Not only are they good for you, they taste great too! It's a WIN-WIN!

Can you believe it?! I even shared some with the hubby!

Honestly, all of the Mamma Chia products I have tried (from bars and granola to beverages and squeezes) have been DELISH! And, if you know me, you know I have a texture "thing", so it is HUGE that the chia seeds don't weird me out and I love them in all of the products! But in case you don't believe me, YOU CAN TRY THEM OUT FOR YOURSELF!
