Amazing Grass Green Superfood
The Claim: Amazing Grass makes its products using organic, non-GMO fruits and vegetables sourced from a national network of small farmers. Their original Green Superfood powder blends vegetables, fruits, and greens with digestive enzymes and probiotics like wheat grass, barley grass, alfalfa, acai, and spirulina to increase energy levels, promote detoxification, and boost the immune system.
The Reality: “I am a fan of this product. There are many different greens here, and I love that the probiotics are paired with fiber. When probiotics have a prebiotic to feed off of, they have a higher likelihood of surviving transport through your gut,” Shapiro tells us. She was very impressed by the high dose of Vitamin K (one serving has a whopping 85% of the recommended daily dose), and lack of added sugars. This greens supplement also has a dose of Vitamin A and Vitamin C. There's no shortage of micronutrients here.
The Taste: In our taste test, this powder proved to be one of the sweetest of the bunch, but it still featured “earthy and honest” grassy notes that we enjoyed. Tasters noted hints of matcha and “a raspberry iced tea vibe that would be stellar in a smoothie.” They’re not the only ones with that idea—this is the same green powder Elske chef Anna Posey blends into her morning smoothie.$30, Target. Get it now!
It's not easy being green.
