I've really been trying to eat healthy lately, working at cutting out sugar and adding more fruits and veggies. I got the opportunity to try out Amazing Grass' Green Superfoods in three different flavors and was excited to try it. Adding powdered greens to your diet is a good way to get additional vitamins and minerals and is supposed to be great for your digestive system and energy levels.
The greens come in cute little packets so you just have to add them to the beverage of your choice. I was sent three different flavors: Original, Lemon-Lime Energy Blend, and Goji and Acai Berry Infusion. So I decided to try them three different ways.
First, I tried the Lemon-Lime energy blend in just water. It really did taste like grass, but it almost felt like it was fizzy. I don't know if it was the citrus, or if my taste buds are so warped that it assumes anthing lemon lime should be carbonated. It wasn't very tasty, and I had to practically chug it and hold my breath to get it down.
Next I tried Original, and added it to a green smoothie. The fact that it was mixed with almond milk, blueberries, pineaple, and other greens helped, but it was still pretty grassy tasting.
Finally, I tried Goji and Acai Berry Infusion with apple juice. It was drinkable, but tasted really sweet and still like grass. I still found myself chugging it to get it down.
I have used other powdered greens and other Amazing Grass products, but I don't think I'd buy these again. On the plus side, it really did make me feel more energetic, and awake, but getting them down was a pain. The green color is not very appetizing, but they are truly healthy, and made from plants, gluten free, vegan and raw. If you are interested in trying them, I'd recommend mixing them in with a smoothie or adding them to a little juice and just downing it as fast as you can.
I received these free samples from SocialNature in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.
