Are you a fan of healthy smoothies? Then perhaps you’re putting a green powder in your go-to A.M. smoothie, post-workout shake, or, well, whenever you’re taking out the blender to make a refreshing beverage. That’s great news since such green powders (also called superfood green powders or superfood powders) are a practically no-effort way to boost the health profile of your shake—or even add extra nutrition to oatmeal, yogurt, chia puddings, and more.
So what exactly do these mighty packets contain? “Superfood greens powders are a powdered blend of fruits and veggies that provide a nutrient-dense, antioxidant-rich product to support optimal health,” said Lauren O’Connor, MS, RD, owner of Nutri Savvy Health, in our round-up of the best greens powders you can buy.
While you may not realize it as you gulp down your next shake, these greens powders may actually help keep inflammation at bay, and for the spinach- and kale-averse crowds, in a virtually tasteless manner, to boot.
