I have recently gotten on a HUGE smoothie kick. It really does help me start my day better and keeps me feeling full until dinner! I love all things cold, DELISH so it makes me happy.
My only gripe is the plastic jar... don't get me wrong, I reused it. It is big so it's perfect for loads of things but I hate that I purchased a thing in plastic and promoted plastic production.
I LOVE adding veggies in my smoothies. I HATE when people day 'that's gross' without 1) ever trying it or 2) just trying one and judging them all. It's an EASY and PAINFREE (unless veggies give you pain) way to get tons of vitamins and minerals in a yummy way! Anyone can accidentally make a smoothie taste like a plate of salad but once you find that PERFECT blend, you will be so happy you did!
I have tried SEVERAL Green powder supplements and each was good. Expensive but had a great taste. Cheap but kinda chalky. Medium priced and weird flavor.
I happened upon this one, Super Greens, last night doing some shopping (at Walmart, aka easy to find for most of us) and first thing this morning busted into it!!
I liked that it has organic greens, the powder is fine and the flavor is basic. Why would I like that? Who wants fake lemon flavor or that chemical sugary taste when you want to make a smoothie? Not I!
So first things first, I had some kale and spinach I NEEDED TO USE ASAP. Other than loading up with my dinner, I had other plans! Blend it and freeze it! Easy to pop into my next 12 smoothies (12 ice cube slots). I added this Super Green as well. Just blended with some water and froze! Lasts for months in a freezer bag (idk how much longer because I go through it quick!).
Now the real taste test! I used the left overs to make myself a Pineapple, mango, papaya smoothie with this lovely spinach/kale/super greens combo. LOVE IT. Sadly I drank it so fast I didn't get pictures, that in itself is amazing. Most smoothies last me at least 45minutes to drink it all.
The basic flavor disappeared into my awesome fruit blend and I felt wonderful all day!
I have officially found another love-y product! Easy to get, reasonable price and decent but easy to improve/cover flavor. Plus? Check out all the goodies in there! I didn't even have to add my matcha powder! It's already in there! Brussel sprouts?! OMG can't even taste it.
I'm in love with how easy it is to find more natural things at the local stores! Makes my heart happy that healthy can be right at your finger tips!
Give it a shot I say! Check for allergies/calories/anything else of interest and with your doctor before making any huge changes in your diet.
Also, yes my Skinny Girl blender finally died. Not because of anything it did. I may or may not have accidentally killed it. It still has a place in my heart but I am now using Ninja Food processor and it does a great job as well!
4/5 Pants on this one, took 1 Pants off because... plastic. That being said the plastic used is a number 2. High- Density Polyethylene, no
marked health issues though many still list it as kinda safe (aka reuse with craft items, non-food items), can stand high heat and is recyclable.
If I could find this in glass they wouldn't be able to take my money fast enough.
Did someone say smoothie,
