Hey Chia Pet owners: Your sprouted shelf decor is jam-packed with powerful nutrients!
While the chia seeds may end up looking pretty ridiculous when we grow them out of a giant Scooby-Doo head, they are crazy good for you! In fact, they're a better source of omega-3 than salmon and they're also full of fiber, protein, antioxidants and minerals.
But don't fret, you don't have to steal the seeds from your favorite little foliage friend.
Mamma Chia is incorporating these super seeds into their delicious juices with nine flavors ranging from coconut mango and kiwi lime to cranberry lemonade and more!
And now for the best news of all—celeb hotspot Nobu is now serving a "Lemon Chia Fizz" cocktail that mixes one of Mamma Chia's drinks in the recipe, so now you can pump yourself full of your vitamins and other nutrients while you indulge in a decadent adult beverage.
But if you aren't lucky enough to live near one of Nobu's 26 locations, you can now create this delicious cocktail in the comfort of your own home!
