When I was shopping at Whole Foods a few days ago and grabbing my weekly dose of kombucha, I saw a drink that I’ve seen a hundred and one times before, but never tried. Mamma Chia has a whole line of beverages and other products, but after a solid month of making hibiscus tea from hibiscus leaves, something pushed me to try the Mamma Chia Blackberry Hibiscus Vitality Beverage. And I’m very glad that I did, because this drink, guys, is pretty awesome.
A lot of people try to stay away from beverages with little black floaties in them, which is completely understandable, but if you’re head over heels for chia seeds like I am, then these kinds of drinks sort of call to you. Since I drink GT’s Enlightened Synergy Grape Chia Drink on a weekly basis, I guess I’m already accustomed to the texture that the chia seeds add to beverages.
I liked the sweetness level of the drink. As you probably know, I love blackberries, so a drink that paired blackberries and hibiscus tea was literally a dream come true!
Like I said, some people like chia seeds in their drinks and some don’t. I’m one of those that does so I really enjoyed this drink. I loved texture that the chia seeds added to the blackberry hibiscus drink.
Would I drink it again?
Absolutely! This blackberry hibiscus beverage was so refreshing and delicious.
Hydrated chia seeds* (purified water, chia seeds*), agave*, lemon juice*, blackberry juice concentrate*, organic flavors*, hibiscus extract*, fruit and vegetable juice for color, citric acid.
* denotes organic ingredient
On the back of the bottle, it says that there’s less than one tablespoon agave nectar in one bottle, which is very encouraging for those who are trying to lower the sweeteners they consume daily. Talk about a step in the right direction from sodas and other drinks with high sugar content!
I was a little off-put when I saw that the “fruit and vegetable juice for color” wasn’t organic as well. Also, I’m not sure what organic flavors implies, but I’m hoping it’s nothing bad. Overall, I really liked this drink.
My rating: ★★★★★
So, I hope you try the Mamma Chia Blackberry Hibiscus Vitality Beverage! Mamma Chia has loads of great products and I think I’ll be trying more in the future. You can find this drink at health food stores like Whole Foods Market (where I got mine) and many other health food stores.
