It’s always best to get your nutrition from whole foods, but sometimes it’s useful to have a quality superfood greens powder as a supplement on hand. They can be very convenient when you’re traveling, when you’re having those extra busy days, or when you think you might just not be consuming enough green vegetables in your diet.
Naked Nutrition recently reached out to us to tell us about their Naked Greens Superfood Powder. One scoop of their super greens powder provides the equivalent of 2 servings of green vegetables and grasses. It’s vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, and dairy-free. It’s also free of any artificial sweeteners, flavors, or colors. Their organic greens blend contains 6 different types of greens and vegetables – broccoli, alfalfa, kale, spinach, spirulina, and wheat grass. It also contains prebiotics, probiotics, ashwagandha, and panax ginseng.
The product retails at $29.99 for a 32 serving container. It comes out to just under a dollar per serving, which is comparable to other greens powders in the market. Depending on the formulation and quality, green powder supplements may cost up to $2-3 per servings.
Some of the common complaints of green powders are on their taste and texture – often too grassy or clumpy, doesn’t mix well, or requires a lot of other ingredients to mask the taste.
How does this one compare?
I decided to add it to my post-workout smoothie. I combined a cup of unsweetened almond milk, a handful of mixed berries, a scoop of my usual chocolate protein powder, and a scoop of Naked Greens Superfood Greens Powder. Since there’s no added sweeteners and flavors, you can easily customize it for your palate depending what other ingredients you’re using. It blended nicely and didn’t leave any gritty textures. It added a nutritious boost to my protein without compromising the taste.
Storage tip: I find it best to keep it in the fridge or freezer after opened.
Lastly, here are some of my favorite ways to enjoy my greens powder.
- Mix with non-dairy milk in a shaker bottle
- Blend it in a smoothie with protein powder and fruits
- Mix a scoop of greens powder into morning oatmeal
- Add a scoop of greens powder into my waffle batter and make green waffles
