In collaboration with Nature’s nutrition.

If you have been following me for a while, in bits and pieces I’ve shared how I struggle with eating certain texture’s and colours, which mostly influence fruit and veg.

So when Green powders drew my attention on the market I was intrigued, something perfect for me. As it will be much easier for me to drink my micro nutrients. So you can understand my excitement when Nature’s nutrition reached to me to review one of their products!

I did it live on my insta stories and people loved my live taste test review, especially when I described the taste as ‘it taste’s like health’. haha

After some tips and tricks I decided to add it to some smoothies, and who else to call but my raw living smoothie making QUEEN of a sister Anneke.

This girl knows her smoothies in and out and honestly, I’m not lying, but as I’m typing this she’s just making smoothies behind me, and of course I ordered one 😛

Okay back to the OG post and recipe’s, after I received the special ‘powders’ I gave her a WhatsApp Image 2018-07-24 at 08.49.29call, we set a date and I went to go visit her with my basket full of goodies at her flat in Stellenbosch to teach me her ways.

Full review on the Nature’s nutrition Super green & Reds in Citrus Berry flavor. 

Taste: I love everything that tastes like citrus, that being said, your smoothie should have the same taste. If you put this in with chocolate/Banana/peanut butter, you will taste it and it won’t go together so well. It goes the best with frozen berries for me personally.

Texture: This was the tough part, not like I struggle with this enough already with normal food, but just stirring it with water is not enough with this powder, you need to blend it with other textures and preferably with a blender or shaker then you won’t taste it all. Oh and it has a ‘brown’ color and will change your smoothie into that color as well, and it won’t be green anymore.

Benefits: Like I said in the beginning of this blog post, I really struggle with getting in my greens and have my whole life so having this around is definitely a life saver. By drinking this I am getting nutrients from plants I never would have eaten otherwise.

Including these:

  1. 300mg Vitamin C

  5. 40mg Calcium

Will I include this in my daily routine? I had the best intentions to become a green smoothie drinking morning person, but to be honest in winter I’ve struggled with that, when It’s cold, I just want a bowl of warm oats and coffee. But I will definitely try and incorporate it more in the summer!

Again a big thank you for Nature’s nutrition for giving me the chance to review this product! A must for everyone’s daily routine, pantry and life!
