Amazing Grass offers Amazing Supplements
I’m a big fan of green drinks here at VWJ headquarters. Of course, the best green drink is fresh green juice, but that’s not always an option. So when I’m on the go, whether backpacking or roadtripping, or just having a hectic week at work, I love supplementing with green drinks, and Amazing Grass offers my favorite green drink powder for on-the-go green goodness.
Amazing Grass is a great company that I love to support: their products are fully organic, totally vegan, and help boost our diet with green awesomeness in an easy, delicious way. Amazing Grass recently sent me some products to review, and I’m pretty stoked on all of them.
Easily, my favorite Amazing Grass product is their green drinks, which come in easy single serve packets. As you can see in the image here, they sent a variety of their Green Superfood and Raw Reserve powders to try.
The Green Superfood drinks comes in Acai Berry, Tangerine, Chocolate, Pineapple, Goji Berry and two holiday flavors, Chocolate Peppermint, Holiday Cookie, and (of course) Pumpkin Spice. If you can have your green drinks taste like cookies, I say we all win, right?! These products come in 7.4 ounce containers for home use, and single serve packs for one drink for on-the-go green goodness.
The Green Superfoods, made with a mix of green grasses (barley, wheat and alfalfa), along with other green superfoods like spirulina, chlorella, spinach and broccoli, might seem like it would taste like a mashy blended salad, but these drinks really do taste amazing. These drinks also contain fruits, veggies, fiber, digestive enzymes, and probiotics for a overall health boosting drink. The supplement facts are listed to the right: it is truly amazing to me that all this nutrition fits into one tiny little drink. (The chocolate package is shown, but most others are similar)
The best flavors are the chocolate (sounds weird, but tastes great) and the berry, but all the flavors are pretty dang good. These 7 gram packets are prefect to keep in your desk at work, your purse or your suitcase for days when you’re not getting enough greenery, or when you need a boost of energy. Simply mix with water, swirl around, and drink up! They can also be blended into smoothies or into plant-based milk for a different flavor.
Amazing Grass has also recently released their Amazing Meals, a protein-infused power mix that can be blended into smoothies or just blended with water or plant-milk for a quick, healthful meal on the go. Again, the favorite is chocolate, but Vanilla Chai is also pretty dang good. These two flavors do have some sugar in them, so if you’re watching your sugar intake, sample the original which has almost zero sugars.
These Amazing Meals have all the green goodness of the drinks, but with the added bonus of plant-based proteins from hemp, pumpkin seed, brown rice and quinoa protein, adding up to 12 grams of high-quality vegan protein per serving. An ample meal on the go, especially when you consider it’s matched with 4 grams of fiber and an array of vitamins and minerals. I blended the Chocolate Infusion with some coconut milk and a few tablespoons of chia seeds for a quick and satisfying breakfast just this morning, and it held me over for hours of blogging!
