Several years ago I gave up eating my typical breakfast of cereal and started drinking my breakfast–fruits, veggies and seeds all blended into a smoothie. I love how I feel after starting my day with so many nutrients–but I don’t love constantly cleaning out my blender–or, worse, waking up my kids from the noise.
I was so excited to see that Mamma Chia has started making a new chia and greens drink. This combines the powerhouse of chia with healthy, vibrant greens and has one of the lowest amounts of sugar and the highest amount of nutrients in the green drinks universe. It is packed with Omega-3s and also boasts way more fiber, protein and calcium than a bowl of cereal or even my homemade smoothies. See more about the chia and greens nutrition here. Not only are the Chia and Greens drinks good for you, but I love how they taste! In four flavors, they are refreshing with a hint of sweetness from the fruit without being overwhelmingly sweet. I’ve found these drinks are a great breakfast and I’ve even been able to drink a Chia and Greens instead of my afternoon cup of coffee. That extra vitamin boost helps to get me through my afternoon slump. And I love the texture! The little chia seeds absorb the liquid and gel up so it seems like a bit of a cross between a drink and Jell-O! And, just like all of their products, Mamma Chia’s new green drinks are Non-GMO, gluten-free, Vegan, Kosher, and USDA Certified Organic.
My family has enjoyed Mamma Chia products for a few years. My youngest son absolutely loves the chia squeeze and my older two have been loving the Mamma Chia vitality bars in their lunches. Their granola makes an excellent snack on its own or on top of some fruit or yogurt. And I love that I can buy a bag of chia seeds to add to my smoothies or oatmeal or to make a few of these yummy chia recipes.
