Amazing Grass Kidz Superfood

Posted on by Alisa Fleming in Beverages with 0 Comments

My husband and I have sampled loads of the Amazing Grass GreenSuperfoods (Berry and Chocolate) and the Kidz Superfoods (Wild Berry and Chocolate) and we simply love all of them.

Some adults and most kids will probably favor the Kidz Superfoods as they are a touch sweeter. I like the berry versions (both the Kidz and “adult” versions) simply mixed with water for a post-workout reward (just sweet enough for those heightened taste buds and it dissolves nicely) or mixed into smoothies to pump up the overall taste and sweetness. The chocolate versions need something more than just water in my opinion, so I only add them to full blown smoothies or shakes, like the recipes below. 

Beyond taste, the ingredient profile for these powders is excellent. They aren’t protein powders, but rather an amazing blend of “superfoods,” that I use for an antioxidant, electrolyte, and flavor shot. I think of them as a “booster” like you would get at a juice shop. See the end of this review for the ingredient lists in the two Kidz Superfoods. The GreenSuperfoods vary just a bit in the fruit and veggie assortment and as noted.

As an added bonus, the Kidz Superfood is amazingly low in sugar and the berry has both prebiotics and probiotics within to help keep little tummies in check. The chocolate also has a wee bit of soymilk powder for richness, so it isn't soy-free.

For two full smoothie recipes (Berry-licious Superfood Shake and Peanut Butter Cocoa Smoothie) see my Amazing Grass Kidz Superfood post on Dairy-Free & Fit.
