There's nothing worse than an awful taste of super greens powder. Worry no more! We have listed some ways to mix up your greens for the best taste, so you'll actually have fun drinking one every day and savor the nutrients these greens offer!
Let’s talk about greens powder!
A greens powder is an ideal way to replenish your daily nutrient intake. It is dried, powdered forms of various vegetables condensed down into a blend that's easy to take.1 While greens powder isn’t a direct substitute nor an excuse to push whole vegetables off your plate, it can help bridge the gap — most especially for those who struggle to consume the recommended servings of vegetables or simply hate them.

Owing to pHresh greens®’ ingredients, some people might think of the bitter taste it has. So how can you make your green powder taste better, or at least drown them out so you're getting the health benefits without suffering through the taste? Here are our tips. Let’s get started, shall we?
1. Mix your pHresh greens® with COLD water
The colder the better! Just add 1 tsp. of pHresh greens® to water with ice cubes or even just cold water. Drink immediately after shaking or mixing for at least 30 seconds. We've found the best way to mix a greens powder is with ice-cold water. So, don't linger, sip or sniff... knock it back in one!
2. Blend with fruits
Many fresh, ripe fruits have strong flavors, and those flavors can be almost overpowering. That’s perfect when you really dislike the taste of greens powder. Adding some fresh fruit with strong flavors like pineapples, ripe bananas, raspberries, and blueberries, is a great way to get variety as well as cover the taste of the green powders. You can freeze your fresh fruits or buy frozen fruits, particularly fruits that aren't in season and add those to your smoothies. This can supersede some or all of the ice you use in your smoothie, making it more concentrated with less water, for a rich, flavorful, and healthier beverage.
3. Bake, bake, bake!
Adding a scoop of greens powder in place of a tablespoon of flour in your pancake batter helps you get your greens as part of a balanced breakfast. You might be thinking, “it’s impossible!”. But hey, pHresh greens® isn’t limited to smoothies, though it’s one of the more convenient ways to consume it. Adding a tablespoon or a scoop of pHresh greens® to various cake, brownie, and cupcake recipes is also easy to do and won't overwhelm any but the most delicate flavors.

4. Go for dips!
Super greens powder can be mixed into hummus, sour cream, or other dips to pair with (vegan) crackers or vegetables. Hummus/dip is especially favorable to greens powder as the flavor is earthy like greens powder and can counteract the bitter flavor.
Super greens can be difficult to get down for some, but because they can supplement your diet to make you healthier and more attentive and productive in your day-to-day life, they’re essential to take. Still, that doesn’t mean you have to suffer through it to get them down. Get creative and come up with ideas of your own. Too busy? Don’t have enough time to prepare your greens? You can add greens powder — pHresh greens® — to your diet and follow our easy and vegan recipes!
