We’ve all been there. We wake up with a little less energy than anticipated or it’s the middle of the afternoon and we are just trying to push through that 3 o’clock slump. There are so many energy products on the market these days but honestly most of them scare me. I don’t like not being able to read or understand the ingredients that are in most of these energy products. Thankfully there is a more organic option to help you power through your day like Mamma Chia Energy.
I was recently asked by the folks at Mamma Chia to give their new Mamma Chia Energy drinks a try for myself. As a busy Mom, I can use all the help that I can get. I’ve heard of the brand Mamma Chia before and seen them in my local stores but have yet to try them out. So I went on the hunt for the Mamma Chia Energy drinks and found them at my local Walmart store. My store had two flavors available: Raspberry Razz and Blackberry Blast. However, Mamma Chia Energy comes in four flavors total: Cherry Charge, Grape Power, Raspberry Razz, and Blackberry Blast.
So, what makes Mamma Chia Energy different from a typical energy drink? Mamma Chia Energy is the first beverage that combines the benefits of the mighty, little chia seed with the clean, natural energy of guayusa as well. I am a huge fan of chia seeds, often adding them to a bowl of yogurt or fruit or on top of toast in the morning for my breakfast. Chia seeds are packed with Omega-3’s. Guayusa is a natural caffeine found in the leaves of a Holly tree that doesn’t give you the jitters like regular caffeine. Instead, Guayusa provides a balanced and sustained energizing effect without the typical caffeine crash afterwards.
In one bottle of Mammma Chia Energy your body can receive more than a day’s worth of Omega 3’s (2500 mg), 25% of your daily fiber (6 grams), 4 grams of complete protein, twice the antioxidants of a cup of green tea, calcium, antioxidants, minerals, and 90 mg of natural caffeine (about as much as 8 oz of coffee). Just one bottle can pack a serious nutritious punch! Unlike a typical, bottled fruit juice beverage, Mamma Chia Energy drinks are not overly sweet. Instead, they have a light, slightly fruity taste with a gel-like texture which gives you a completely different mouth feel and experience from any other beverage you may have tried. I personally love the gel consistency that surrounds the chia seeds as they feel like tiny, edible bubbles. As someone that is trying to cut back on chemicals and is leaning more towards a more natural lifestyle, I love knowing that I can find products like Mamma Chia Energy in my local stores that are both refreshing and nutrient-rich. Not only are Mamma Chia Energy drinks fun to drink but they also provide some of the health benefits that my body needs, and that is a win in my book.
Look for Mamma Chia Energy in stores like Walmart. Also, right now in select Walmart stores look for a special $.55 instant coupon around the neck of some bottles to which will help you save a little on Mamma Chia Energy drinks at checkout. This was just my first taste of one of the products that Mamma Chia offers. I’m definitely going to be looking to try out more of their products soon and instead of grabbing that soda or coffee at checkout on my next grocery shopping trip I’m sure I’ll be reaching for one of the many different Mamma Chia beverages instead.
