First of all, thank you SO much to Teri Jo from Amazing Grass for giving me the opportunity to review some great products on my blog. I was thrilled to receive samples of Amazing Meal Powder, Green Superfood Powder, Green Superfood Energy Bars, Organic Wheat Grass Powder, and Kidz Superfood Powders. Each of these products have astounding nutritional value and are able to fit individual needs.
Each of these powder products mixes easily with water or your favorite milk (soy or otherwise) to create a frothy, nutrient packed beverage. As we all know, sometimes it’s difficult to get the daily reccommended 5-9 servings of fruits and vegetables. With these powder mixes, you get a powerfuly combination of the most nutritious vibrant organic vegetables, cereal grasses, algae, anti-oxidant rich fruits, probiotics and immune boosting support herbs. As you can imagine, there are endless health benefits of using Amazing Grass supplements:
Unlike a multi-vitamin, these products are created by WHOLE foods. Just one serving gives you the antioxidant equivalent of 7 servings of fruits and vegetables and helps you hit your daily quota.
First, I’ll start off by telling you about my favorite product, the Chocolate Green Superfood. This stuff was so tasty! I think the best idea I came up with to try this powder in, was a Strawberry Jayy Robb protein shake. It was seriously EXACTLY like a chocolate covered strawberry. The wheat grass taste was unidentifiable (just the way I like it! :)). It’s also very versatile though. I also LOVED it mixed into my banana whip (frozen, purreed banana).
The Chocolate & Chocolate Peanut Butter Whole Food Energy Bars were yummy too! I wasn’t a fan of the Original and the Berry flavors, though. Each bar is loaded with 2/3 of a serving of our Amazing Grass Organic Green SuperFood drink powder. They are completely raw & unprocessed, which I love! Each bar contains 230 calories, 9g of fats (healthy omegas), 5g of protein, 27g of sugar (a little on the high side), and 37g of carbs. They are also gluten and dairy free! Safe for vegans, too!
I did like the chewy, chocolatey taste of the bars, but the ones without chocolate seemed to have a bitter, grittiness to them. Not sure why?
If you’re a parent of a child that simply opposes the though of eating fruits and vegetables on a daily basis, the Amazing Grass Kidz Superfood has got your back! While they are not meant to replace the 5-9 servings of fruit & veggies in childrens’ diets, they help supplement and provide insurance that the health promoting benefits of a rainbow colored diet are being achieved when feeding it to them isn’t always possible. After all, what kid do you know of that would turn down a nice big glass of “chocolate milk”?! 🙂
Overall, I’d give the chocolate products in the Amazing Grass family a 10/10. I wasn’t a fan of the flavorless (actual wheat grass) versions, but to each his own! More power to you if you actually enjoy the taste of grass 🙂 I love that it’s so easy to get such an array of vitamins and minerals in just one drink, and that you can dress up the powders to create desserts for yourself to enjoy while your body reaps all the benefits of the fruit & vegetable goodness!
