There is so many alternative to staying healthy and making sure you are getting the right amount of vitamins and minerals in your system - but let's face it, sometimes, taking those humongous vitamin pills are ridiculously not so throat-friendly. If for anything, it just reminds you that your gagging reflex still works pretty well. This is why the Amazing Grass Green Superfood is no stranger in my household. It has been a part of our diet for years and makes up for those days when taking vitamin pills are just too much to swallow. And with that being said, when you like a product and someone asks you to try a few of their flavors to review, what do you do? You, of course accept the request and say, yes! right away.
Well, that's exactly what I did when Green Moms Meet asked me.
Filling in the Gaps with Organic Goodness
I will admit, I can't keep up with my daily vitamin-intakes. Those huge pills, they sometimes intimidate me or most of the time, I simply forget, especially when I'm crunched for time. But, in the same token, I love to drink my juice. Think of a lightbulb moment! Boom.
What an easy alternative to keep up with my vitamin intake during those days I've missed taking them. In my concoction, I added the Amazing Grass Green Superfood Organic Lemon-Lime Energy to my Tropical Juice drink and my, my, my, it was delish! I couldn't even tell that I had the green powder in there. If any at all, it enhanced my juice's flavor. I can taste the hint of the lime and that was a good thing.
The dark green color may have initially shocked me after I mix the two together using the shaker cup provided, but that did not deter me from enjoying my juice drink! Not to say, it's like having a shot of energy. The Lemon-Lime product contains about 85 mg of plant-based Caffeine in the single-serve packet - thanks to the power of Guayaki Yerba Mate! It was a quick and easy way for me to get energized for the long day ahead of me for sure.
Product with Endless Potential
What I love about this product is the fact that they are made of certified organic ingredients. It also comes in different flavors which means, you have a wide variety of choices and endless possibilities. You can mix them in all sorts of recipes including Popsicles, Smoothies, Sandwiches, and even in your wine! Yes, wine.
I got you at wine, didn't I?
You can check additional recipes for some interesting ideas you probably didn't even think possible HERE. And while you're there, check the different flavors they have available right now. You'll find that they have a variety of taste and flavor that appeals to anyone - including your kids!
The best thing about this product, they come in single-serve packets. Which makes them great for when you're on the go! They're handy and easily accessible when you need a boost of energy! Just add them in your water and you're good to go.
Notable observation to consider:
As most powdered products, this is not exempted from grounds residue settling at the bottom or the presence of minute grits. And if you want to eliminate the separation, just give it an occasional shake or a little stir while you drink your beverage.
Taste. Though the product is flavored, there is a distinct, subtle "grassy" hint to it. Think of it as drinking green tea where there is that distinct flavor unique to the tea. If you're not used to this "grassy" flavor, you might not get passed that especially when mixed to plain water. But it's not strongly sensed when mixed in with other flavored liquids like juices, unless you are very sensitive to it.
Also, the only thing I can't do with this product is mix them in my coffee. I wish! I would have been totally set. But not yet. Other than that, it's a good product to consider adding in your list of healthy product must-haves.
You can't wait to try this product in your wine, can't you?!
