Thought Arbonne was just about cosmetics? Think again! New to Arbonne Canada is the Greens Balance Dietary Supplement Blend. This vegan friendly fruit and vegetable formula contains a blend of ‘The Colours of Healthly Living‘ (Greens, Yelllows, Reds, Blues) but also contains an Omega-3 Seed blend from chia, flax and quinoa. It comes as a green powder that might not look very appetizing but when used right it’s a great way to ensure that you are eating healthy and getting all the daily nutrients your body needs and wants.
To use: Add one scoop to a glass of milk, water or a protein shake.
I found that when adding the powder to a glass of water it was hard to have all the powder dissolve. I like to combine a scoop to my morning smoothie and I don’t notice any taste difference, the smoothie is just a tad greener, which is fine by me! I wrote up my recipe below for you guys to try and be sure to let me know your thoughts if you do try it!
- 1 Banana
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter
- Handful of spinach
- Scoop of Arbonne Essentials Greens Balance
- Little bit of honey for added sweetness
- Add water and blend.
The powder is available in 216g container for $60.
From the Arbonne website: Mom always said to eat your veggies. Greens Balance makes this easy with its spectrum of proprietary colour blends of whole fruit and vegetable powders — delivering antioxidants, phytonutrients and fibre you need to have a more balanced, healthier diet every day. Fruits, vegetables, and legumes are sources of phytonutrients, or nutrients that come from plants. These nutrients include carotenoids like alpha- and beta-carotene in yellow fruits and vegetables, anthocyanidins in blues, lycopene in reds, and sulforaphane in cruciferous vegetables like kale and broccoli.
