If you are familiar with “Superfoods,” then you will know that the brand “Amazing Green Grass” is one of the leading suppliers of these in the market right now. Their company was founded in 2002 by two chaps called Brandon and Todd. They do a whole range of healthy products. The biggest problem is that there are a lot of them so can get difficult to know which ones are the best for you.
Below we have broken these down into categories which we hope will make it easier to understand. In total, the brand does over 100 different superfood powder products. We will try to bring some clarity on this so as you know which are the best in the brand.
They do two main products which are their powdered drinks and their energy bars.
Their products are vegan-friendly and gluten-free. They all contain a mixture of vitamins, minerals, plant-based protein, phytochemicals, and leafy greens. For me, the best way to take these is to add them to your juices or smoothies. Some people prefer to add a scoop of the powder into whatever they may be baking at the time. Others simply prefer to grab an energy bar and go.
The company claims that the main benefits of taking their powders will help as follows:
- Daily Wellness – helps with detox, immune levels, and weight management
- Higher Performance – protein-based energy for better performance
- More Energy – some products have caffeine and some don’t – make sure to check
We will have a look at their top 3 powdered drinks and then below look at their energy bars.
The ingredients of the powdered drink are all the same but they produce them in a range of flavors which include:
- Wheat Grass
- Lemon Grass
Amazing Grass Original Superfood
This is their original and still their best selling product. Its main purpose is to help you get the required 5-9 daily servings of fruit and vegetables. This is done by taking a powdered drink at breakfast time. What this one does is give you all the required vitamins and make it taste great.
This product is made with organic green foods, is gluten-free and ideal for Vegan and Raw.
You simply mix one scoop of this powder into 6 ounces of water and you can repeat these 1-3 servings daily. Personally I add this into my morning juice to give me a great energy boost in the morning. If you like smoothies then you can add a scoop to one of those and it works great.
One reviewer said this:
Excellent for ph balancing, makes me feel good, get my greens in and mostly organic ingredients. I add it to my Garden of Life Raw protein shake
This product has over 5,000 buyer reviews so one thing you know is that it is certainly selling well. Overall it is maintaining an average rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars and that is also really consistent. Now the product is not liked by everyone, but it would seem that the majority of people do like it.
Amazing Grass Green SuperFood Berry
This is another popular choice and as the name would suggest ideal if you like the taste of berries. Again like the one above these are ideal for mixing into smoothies or juices first thing in the morning. Now some people drink this just by mixing it to water.
It does not look the best and personally I think it tastes awful on its own. When I add to my morning juice then it works great, but I could not drink this stuff on its own, I need to mix it with something to hide the taste. Now I have read a lot of reviews on this product, and many reviewers do say this is an acquired taste.
I guess if you drink enough of something that you do get used to it. I think I will stick to popping a scoop into my smoothie in the morning and avoid the taste learning experience.
I have never been a big vitamin taker, but with these powders, I have noticed that overall, there is an enhanced sense of well being. That could well be a psychological thing of course, but the only way you will ever know is to give it a whirl for yourself. One review I enjoyed said this:
I do feel better using this.It looks gross can not lie,it is green.Just close your eye’s and chug it.It does taste pretty good.I would tell anyone to just do it as that shoe company say’s.A lot of good stuff here,it is worth buying.I have tried orange flavor and lemon lime,both were good just forget how green it is.It does make me have more energy,I will keep using it.
That pretty much sums this one up.
Amazing Grass Chocolate Drink Powder
Many people love the taste of chocolate. Personally I have tried this one in the following way. I tried using it almost every morning for around 6 months. I use Almond Milk and add a tablespoon of fresh ground Flax Seed. Now as the name of this website suggests I do like my flaxseed and this Amazing Grass chocolate version works pretty well as a good combination.
The ingredients for all three of these are pretty much the same. Please remember that all of these products are based on grass. This does seem to come as a shock to some people who are maybe expecting other leafy greens. The owners of this company make organic grass and that is the base of all of their products.
There is a taste of chocolate from this product but it is not as strong as I would personally like it to be. Sorry, that is probably unfair, it is not as sweet as I would like it to be. However, I am guessing that sweet could also mean that I would not be getting the full goodness of a more natural product.
Amazing Grass Organic Green Superfood Berry Energy Bar
Amazing Grass Organic Green Superfood Berry Energy Bar, 60-Gram bars (Pack of 12) Not available at the moment
You get a pack of 12 bars and they cost $27 so just over $2 and certainly not a cheap option. There are 60 grams in each bar. Now I do prefer the powdered drinks that I have shown above, but these are better if you actually want to eat something.
I have tried these and they are good. They do them in a variety of flavors which include:
- Sweet & Savoury Almond
- Chocolate Coconut Chip
They also do protein-rich bars which come in:
- Chocolate Peanut Butter
- Cafe Mocha
- Chocolate Cherry Almond
They also do two fiber bars:
- Lemon Coconut
- Oatmeal Raisin Nut
So as you can see quite a varied collection.
