The delicious new Chia Protein Smoothies combine the Magic of Chia® with two popular nutritional powerhouses: plant protein and medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs)
Carlsbad, California – September 12, 2017 –( GLOBE NEWSWIRE ) — Mamma Chia is disrupting the beverage aisle again with the launch of Chia Protein Smoothies, which combine organic ground chia seeds with organic fruit purees and organic coconut cream. A harmonious blend of sweet and tart flavors, the coconut cream based Chia Protein Smoothies offer a delicious and powerful trifecta of 1000mg Omega-3s, 12g of plant-based protein and 4g of MCTs.
Chia Protein Smoothies feature a rich and smooth consistency due to the finely ground chia seeds, and are available in four flavorful 10 oz. varieties including Super Berry, Dark Cherry, Island Mango and Cool Watermelon. With only 180 calories and 9g of sugar, Chia Protein Smoothies are USDA certified organic, non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free, and kosher. The stylish, vibrant labels reflect the new direction of packaging design that Mamma Chia will start rolling out with its other products.
MCTs are high-quality fats that are easily absorbed and burned by the body for optimal energy and focus. The combination of MCTs, plant protein, and chia offer a truly powerful way to bring vitality to your day.
“We are very excited about our newest beverage innovation and know that the organic ground chia will speak to a wide audience and expand our community of Mamma Chia lovers,” said Janie Hoffman, Mamma Chia Founder and CEO. “The new Chia Protein Smoothies are equally as delicious as they are nutritious, blending our organic fruit purees with finely ground chia along with an extra boost of plant protein and MCTs.”
The new Chia Protein Smoothies (SRP $3.99) join the existing line-up of Chia Vitality Beverages, Chia Energy Beverages, Chia Squeezes, and Chia Granola Clusters. In addition to the new Chia Protein Smoothies, Mamma Chia has also introduced two new Chia Vitality flavors: Ginger Lime and Blueberry Pomegranate.
