This flavor of Daily Greens’ chia-enhanced line of cold-pressed juices is, much like its flagship line, very subtle in its flavor profile. The juice base is made with lemon, cucumber, cantaloupe, watermelon, pineapple, spinach and lime. While you can taste each of these flavors, the cantaloupe, cucumber and watermelon are what we taste most. This gives the product a refreshing and light mouthfeel, which is quite nice. The added greens hit your tongue in the second wave, with the pineapple and lime rounding it all out. The chia has been used somewhat sparingly, resulting in some slight chew that sits towards the bottom of the bottle unless you constantly shake it. That being said, this product offers more of a “hint of chia” rather than being a full blown chia product. It’s an approach that seems to make sense given what Daily Greens is all about. Visually, the product looks very much like the rest of the line, with a small, but prominently placed, callout for “CHIA.” Given that this is a line extension, we think this approach makes sense. Otherwise, the color of the liquid is ultimately what we think sells the product. All in all, a very nice addition to the lineup.
