The One Green Planet Verdict: We sampled all of Mamma Chia’s flavors and found that we liked them all!
The flavors all have a nice balance between the two fruits or herbs that are in each one. Despite being fruity flavors, the drinks are actually very lightly sweetened – not overly sweet like many juice drinks!
We especially enjoyed the Coconut Mango and Guava Mama flavors. They have a smooth, mild flavor anyone is sure to love! And with 9 great flavors to choose from, you’re sure to find a favorite.
The star of the drinks – chia seeds – give the beverage a unique, almost jelly-like consistency. But don’t be intimidated! They are fun to drink, and you can feel good knowing that you are drinking something that’s good for you, too!

I tried the Guava flavor and thought it was ok. For me, it was a little too thick and the flavor was not that strong. Although, I think the little chia mixed in with the drink would appeal to many people.
I received three free samples of Mamma Chia and bought two additional bottles so I could try more flavors. I tried: Cherry Lime, Pomegranate Mint, Coconut Mango, Blackberry Hibiscus, and Raspberry Passion. The 10 fl oz bottle size seems a little odd at first. The flavors were all really subtle which was actually really nice. My favorites were Cherry Lime and Blackberry Hibiscus. The texture was like anything I've drank before. I found myself happily chasing chia seeds around in my mouth. I would give this product 5 stars if it wasn't so expensive. If you look at the price of chia seeds, it's not that bad, just not something I can afford on a regular basis. Whenever I see it on sale I will probably treat myself.
Refreshing and fun
These are pretty pricey, but they are very light and thirst-quenching. The bits of chia make them fun to drink, and I love how original and terrific the flavors are. Some of the flavors are a bit weak, but that just makes for a lighter beverage. I also love that although they boost the great nutrition of omega-3s, they aren't loaded with fat and calories. My favorite flavors (so far) are the Blackberry Hibiscus, Cherry Lime, Cranberry Lemonade, and Guava Mamma.
I have tried the coconut mango and raspberry flavors of Mamma Chia now. Chia seeds are so fun to drink! The flavors are a little light and could be stronger. But I do like the size of the bottle. I can drink the whole thing and it's not too many calories. It also provides a good amount of calcium and omega 3's too and I feel good about that. Overall, I really enjoy this beverage, but can't say that I would be able to afford the price! Looking forward to the blackberry hibiscus!
