product review :: Mamma Chia beverage

My review of this Mamma Chia beverage is my own opinion and I was not compensated by the makers of Mamma Chia for this post in any way. Some links in the post may contain affiliate links which help fund this blog at no cost to you.

It’s back to business here at wildberry press after an entire week of snack recipes for Snack to School Week. While I won’t be posting every day, I’m excited to share this new product review series with you along with a new recipe on Wednesday. You definitely want to come back Wednesday!

Since the marketplace has happily become flooded with more better-for-you options, I thought it would be fun to try them out LIVE on Facebook and share my reviews. For the most part, I will make my selections based on electronic coupons available through money-saving apps like Ibotta. That way, not only are we reviewing new products together, but I get to show you how to save money too! However, if you have an idea for a vegan food, personal care or household product I should try, leave a comment telling me the product name, where you found it and why I should try it.

My first review is for Mamma Chia…a purchase that ended up making me $.10.

 

HERE’S THE SCOOP:

Where I bought it: Target

Regular purchase price: $2.79

On sale? Yes! For $2.00

Which money-saving app? Ibotta*

Cost savings: $2 ($1 for the coupon + I gained a second dollar off by earning the Weekend Warrior bonus – I only had to buy two products to earn an extra $2!) PLUS, because I bought this with my Target card, I ended up earning $.10!!!

Total purchase price: $0 (actually I earned $.10!)

How did it taste? Watch this video which I recorded LIVE on my FB page:

 

*If you’re not familiar with Ibotta, it’s a free money-saving app you download to your phone. I would love to have you join my team so we help each other earn more savings together! I do get a bonus when you join with me but there’s never any cost to you…just cost-savings including a $10 sign up bonus!

peanut butter banana milkshake (vegan, no added sugar)

pbmilkshakes Shakes and smoothies are such a “thing” these days.

(Almost) every time I see a shake or smoothie recipe posted on my favorite food blogs or on the pages of a magazine, I think, “I should try that.”

Yet, I rarely make it past this shake.100_2516It tastes rich and unwholesome but really is made from a few simple good-for-you ingredients with no dairy or sugar in sight and was inspired by this recipe over at Healthy. Happy. Life.

Enough said. With summer is in full swing and school starting in less that one month for us, I’m keeping this post short and sweet…

peanut butter banana milkshake (dairy free, no added sugar)

Smooth and creamy, this shake is a perfect combination of salty and sweet.

Course: Beverage, Breakfast, Snack
Servings: 1
Ingredients
  • 1 banana, pre-sliced & frozen
  • 3 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • dashes cinnamon
  • 1/2-3/4 cup unsweetened, dairy-free milk
Instructions
  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender, starting with ½ cup of almond milk. Blend until smooth, adding more milk as needed to produce a thick but pourable shake.


Recipe Notes

I love using unsweetened almond milk for this, but suspect it would be yummy with unsweetened coconut milk too! For a peanut free version, try walnuts. To keep the recipe raw, use a raw nut butter.
