Amazing Grass – Green SuperFood (Chocolate Infusion)
Waking up early in the mornings can come as a struggle for some. Eating a nutritious breakfast before work? Add to that a green, healthy smoothie?! That would probably conflict with timing issues on getting ready. So, what is the solution to receive all nutrients in one full glass? Green SuperFood in the chocolate infusion flavor, by Amazing Grass. It’s one of the leading green powder mixes in the industry and tastes great to boot!
The ingredients in Green SuperFoods work in sync with each other to produce and sustain enough energy through beginning of a day with all the benefits of plant based proteins and probiotics. Chocolate infusion flavor is Amazing Grass’s #1 seller. I have been drinking this powder with the added non-dairy milk (and banana or berries) for over a year now and it has always given me the much-needed perk and alertness in the mornings without the coffee jitters. It’s quick and simple to make.
The taste is definitely chocolaty with greens added, making it not as sweet as one would hope. There is some light stevia added, but no odd after taste. It is best to drink in the mornings for best absorption or when hungry (avoid unnecessary carbohydrates while loading on nutrients).
Adding some natural sweetener to taste is highly desirable. I recommend adding one banana or ½ cup of frozen or fresh berries of choice and blending in a blender with skim milk or non-dairy nut milk until smooth consistency.
The Green SuperFood gives an overall boost to all aspects of our health by raising immune system, regulating blood pressure, cholesterol, and balancing pH value through the valuable ingredients.
The greens powder does not contain soy lecithin (cheap fillers); however, it uses other fillers such flax seed and apple pectin. These fillers are harmless and nothing to raise eyebrows over, since they contain health benefits. This product is very versatile and can be easily mixed with other powders, such as pea powder, maca, hemp seeds, or mesquite.
