Over the summer, I received a free bottle of PINES Mighty Greens Superfood Blend as a product review. You all know how much I love green smoothies—so of course I was delighted to try this PINES product!
Their wheatgrass is grown in organic, glacial soil, watered only with natural rainwater. In addition to being organic, PINES products are also raw, GMO-free, gluten-free, and kosher. Something else that I like about PINES is that they are packaged in amber glass bottles, and the shelf life is five years (so if you’re like me and have an unfortunate tendency to sometimes push bottles to the back of the cupboard and discover them again a year later, it won’t be a problem).
The ingredients in PINES products are all kept really simple, which is definitely a good thing when it comes to leafy green supplements. The Mighty Greens Superfood Blend includes organic wheatgrass, organic alfalfa leaf, organic hemp protein, and organic stevia. The suggested use on the bottle is to mix one tablespoon of the greens powder into a glass of water, but initially I was a little hesitant. I like my greens, but I wasn’t sure I wanted just straight greens and water! So I mixed it in a smoothie first.
It was delicious.
After that, I had it as suggested on the bottle, just the greens and water, and although I will probably continue mixing it into smoothies (check out How to Make a Delicious Green Smoothie for tips!), I was pleasantly surprised with the taste.
If you find it challenging to fit leafy greens into your diet every day, if you don’t like purchasing organic leafy greens during the off-season (because, let’s face it, it often just isn’t as good), or if you don’t have a dehydrator and a high-speed blender to create your own organic mixed leafy greens powder, this PINES greens powder is an excellent option. It’s not just for mixing with water or smoothies, either: you can add a spoonful to your stir-fry, pasta sauce, soups, homemade bread, or anything else you can think of!
