Dairy-free dieters seem to take more interest in nutritional boosters than your average consumer. Which is why I wanted to provide a write-up on Navitas Naturals Superfood Powders.
I am seriously impressed with the innovative approach Navitas Naturals has taken in the supplement arena. They are creating freeze-dried organic superfood powders from various healthy foods, many of which are quite exotic by normal standards.
I’ve only sampled a couple of the Navitas Naturals Superfood Powders, one being the Coconut Water. When I showed it to a good friend, she laughed and questioned, “Dehyrdated water?”. I hadn’t thought about it that way, and had to agree that it was a bit of an oxymoron. Joking aside, I’m not a fan of coconut water at all (no, not even “that” brand). So I can’t really weigh in on the quality and taste of this product.
However, the Pomegranate Powder was right up my alley. This “Persian Superfood” is lightly sweet but very tangy – a reflection of its high vitamin C content. In terms of consistency, I thought it blended rather seamlessly into smoothies and puddings. Nonetheless, I only used 1 tablespoon per serving (the package states 2 tablespoons per serving), which was my lip-puckering limit.
The Pomegranate Powder is also a brilliant, but slightly pale pink color. This provides a visually appealing addition to recipes for both kids and adults. I love it in smoothies, like my Super Beet Smoothie Recipe (pictured at right). It goes extremely well with various berries, but here I paired it with banana and roasted beets for a naturally sweet and nutrient-packed drink.
I’m still experimenting with this powder in other recipes. The Pomegranate Bites I made were a bit too tart. I attempted 1 tablespoon per serving (about 5 bites), and they were pretty tasty, but the aftertaste was just too potent.
Nonetheless, the potential is really there. I think the Pomegranate Powder would be a delicious healthy addition to many no bake treats, including homemade or melted down chocolate.
