(Hi! I have a more recent Amazing Grass review – read here!)
I’ve been a fan of Amazing Grass for quite some time now. You can read about the benefits of greens here but I honestly can’t think of a better way to start my day than a shot of greens. If I was hardcore I would mix it with water, but I’m not, so a little oj and water does the trick.
Amazing Grass recently sent me some of their products to review and graciously sent some amazing greens for our smoothie bar at Camp Endeavor. I was a little nervous that the kids would want nothing to do with anything that would turn their smoothies green, but surprisingly almost all of the girls tried it in their smoothie! It was definitely a proud moment for me. The boys weren’t as into it, but I’ll take a 65% approval rating as a success!
My favorite product is by far the Green Superfoods and always has been. I will say that I really rely on the packets of Green SuperFood while I’m traveling as well. As much as I might try to fit in as many vegetables while I’m on the road as I do at home, it never seems to be the same and those little packets make me feel like I’m making up for the lost vitamins, antioxidants, etc. a bit.
I love the idea of the Amazing Meal with a protein and greens mix, but unfortunately protein powder doesn’t always sit well with my stomach and I’ve always thought hemp protein powder was a bit grainy, even though I LOVE the nutritional stats of it. I’ll stick to my shot of greens ;) Here is a recipe, if you are a fan of the Amazing Meal or interested in trying!
PB & Chocolate Green Smoothie - 1 serving
- 1 packet Chocolate Amazing Meal
- 2 cups spinach
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1 cup milk of choice
- 1 Tbsp peanut butter
Blend until smooth and drink while cold!
