This green smoothie features one of my favorite green superfood powders, Ormus Supergreens.
I recommend green superfood powders for one or more of the following reasons: getting your daily allowance of veggies is a challenge, traditional green smoothies (blended green leafy vegetables) aren’t your thing, you want to incorporate an extremely nutrient dense green superfood into your diet.
For a lot of people using green superfood powders is sort of graduation to the next level of smoothie making, but in reality they can be a great starter ingredient if you want your smoothies loaded with nutrition, without much effort, right off the bat.
Why am I so high on Sun Warrior’s Ormus Supergreens? The product is formulated from organic grasses grown in an ancient sea bed located in a volcanic region of Arizona and Utah. The mineral-rich soil these greens are grown in is loaded with platinum, silver, gold and ormus trace minerals.
The ingredients include probiotic cultured greens, alfalfa, barely, wheat, and oat grass, and powdered down spinach, parsley, peppermint and stevia. The peppermint and stevia result in a minty taste, with a hint of sweetness. I like the flavor it imbues my smoothies with – it’s definitely not something you need to “hide” the taste of.
Ormus Supergreens are certified organic, vegan, raw, and non-GMO. Here’s cool little video on Ormus Supergreens:
I tend to view superfood powders, green or not, as a replacement for a daily multivitamin. If you’re interested in learning more about or purchasing Ormus Supergreens, click here. Other top notch green superfood powders I endorse are Boku and Vitamineral Green.
Adding a green superfood supplement to your already healthy green smoothie results in a truly “super” green smoothie. If you don’t have a green superfood powder on hand, simply omit from the recipe. Enjoy!
