Superfood Highlights

Ginger

Ginger is a popular spice. It is high in gingerol, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Ginger is also effective at reducing the day-to-day progression of muscle pain, and may reduce exercise-induced muscle soreness and a great addition to post-workout recovery!

Coconut Oil

Coconuts contain significant amounts of fat, but unlike other nuts, they provide fat that is mostly in the form of medium chain saturated fatty acids (MCFAs) in particular, one called lauric acid. Lauric acid in the body is a powerful antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial. Adding a moderate amount of coconut-derived foods in your diet may help protect the body from infections and viruses.

Chia Seeds

Despite their small size, chia seeds are one of the most nutritious dense foods. They’re loaded with fiber, protein, omega-3 fatty acids and various micronutrients. Great news for those who don’t consume dairy - gram for gram, the calcium content in chia seeds is higher than most dairy products. As a result, chia seeds may be considered an excellent source of calcium for people who don't eat dairy.

Turmeric

The active compound in turmeric is curcumin and this bioactive compound delivers a one-two punch against free radicals. It blocks them directly, then stimulates your body's own antioxidant defenses!

👌🏽👍🏼

I was a bit hesitant to order this one but I have heard that ginger and turmeric are really good for you so why not and it was not bad I could taste the ginger but it did not over power the mangoes which I love. Overall I would order it again.

Tips:
I followed it exactly and used almond milk which was amazing

Surprisingly delicious

I was unsure about this one, but I ordered one of each to try them all, and I am very happy that I did that. This one is definitely one of my favourites. I was unsure about the carrots but all of the flavours mix so nicely with one another. 7.5/10

Tips:
I used coconut water as my liquid.

Tropical treat

This is a strong tier two selection for me. Ginger, mango, pineapple, and papaya flavours...nice for a once-in-a-while breakfast treat.

Carrots in a smoothie?

I was hesitant about this one with all of the ginger comments but I don’t taste any ginger! It’s also not sweet at all, I had to add two stevia’s to it but I used unsweetened almond milk. It’s refreshing and I taste mostly pineapple which I love.

Tips:
Unsweetened Almond Milk and 2 Stevia in the raw packets

Something different

The ginger in this is not heavy at all, which is great. Fresh and light, the chia doesn't mess with the consistency.

Tips:
added two scoops of collagen protein powder!

A little too gingery for my tastes

Overall it was pretty good, but the ginger was a bit too much for me. I ordered 3 of these and the remaining 2 won’t be the first ones I reach for.

Tips:
I used coconut water as the liquid
