Protein shakes/green smoothies

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

So my family has been slowly reforming some of their eating habits, which of course is wonderful. One of the things they do is consume a daily smoothie. Usually consisting of spinach, cherries, banana, cocoa, and almond milk.  Added to the blend is this mix:

I have to admit, it does look like a pretty decent ingredient list.  What do you all think? I personally am usually a little more purist and prefer whole foods, but this is pretty darn close.

On the contrary, to me it looks like pitch-in-dumpster. All sorts of herbs of unknown quantity purity and provenance, poorly researched or not researched at all to any standard of effectiveness, but full of current-fad-buzz-words. I would sooner take a 100% worthless homeopathic tincture that would at least do nothing, instead of the distinctly possible harm from the herb sweepings in this concoction. I wouldn't touch this with a ten foot pole. Just my 2c.

While I wouldn't be quite as negative as TomB about the mix, I'd say the basic formula of spinach, cherries, banana, cocoa, and almond milk is a much safer bet. No need to adulterate it with all that other stuff in my book.
