Mamma Chia Energy Drinks {Review & Giveaway}

Disclaimer: I was given a complimentary 4 pack of  Mamma Chia Energy Beverages for review. Giveaway was offered and is provided by Mamma Chia. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. 
I've been a big fan of chia seeds ever since I read Born to Run, which described how the super-runner Tarahumara tribe in Mexico used them as fuel. I love mixing a spoonful into my smoothies and oatmeal, even though I always manage to get them stuck all up in my teeth.  #healthnutproblems
Chia seeds have rich, plant-based Omega-3s, fiber, protein, and antioxidants and was used by both the ancient Mayans and Aztecs.  I've tried the yummy drinks and squeezes from Mamma Chia company and was really excited to try their new energy drink.

Mamma Chia paired the magical forces of chia seeds with the clean energy of guayusa into an organic fruity Chia Energy Beverages.

It is lightly sweetened with only 14 g of organic cane sugar and each bottle packs a big punch with: 
  • only 120 calories per 10 ounce bottle
  • more than a day's worth of Omega-3s (2500 mg)
  • 25% of one's daily fiber (6 g)
  • 4 g of complete protein
  • 90 mg of natural caffeine (about as much in an 8 oz. cup of coffee)
  • 2x the antioxidants of a cup of green tea
  • Calcium, powerful antioxidants and valuable minerals

 The texture is just like their other chia drinks or sort of like a gelled beverage. I love the fruity flavors-especially the grape and the raspberry flavors.  The boost of energy was subtle, but has been a great mid-afternoon snack to help me power through work.  


All Mamma Chia products are non-GMO verified, gluten-free, vegan-kosher, and USDA certified Organic. These Mamma Chia Energy Beverages retail for only $2.99 and can be found at select retailers including Whole Foods, Safeway, and Target.
