My husband and I use our Vitamix to make green smoothies using a combination of fresh kale and/or spinach mixed with various fruits like bananas, raspberries and blueberries.  When I was asked to receive the PINES Mighty Greens Superfood Blend for review, I accepted.  The thought of having a all of the nutrients of the leafy greens we use in our green smoothies combined into one powder was appealing.  Continue reading to see what I think of the PINES Mighty Greens Superfood Blend.

PINES Mighty Greens is described as “…a great tasting, dark green food that you can mix with water or juice, or add in to just about any recipe. It’s a simple and effective nutrient-dense, dark green blend of organic wheatgrass and organic alfalfa combined with other nutrient-dense superfoods.”

I’m going to be honest, the taste and texture of the PINES Mighty Greens Superfood Blend took getting used to.  The taste was very green compared to the smoothies we make. I found that if I didn’t drink the Mighty Greens Superfood blend quickly – I’m talking a minute or two after mixing it with water – the powder settled at the bottom of the glass.  Whatever settled at the bottom of the glass was very grainy in texture, and didn’t feel too good going down.  It almost felt like I was swallowing sand.  I did, however, find a way around it by adding a banana to it, and then putting it in my vitamix to blend.  It tasted much better after that.

I felt better after drinking the PINES Mighty Greens Superfood blend; more energy, fuller longer, etc.  And, without being too gross, lighter. Yes, this stuff cleans you out! It’s like an instant cleanse. I kid you not. I didn’t expect it.

The PINES Mighty Greens Superfood Blend contains stevia as a sweetener, which I am not a fan of.  Stevia just leaves a weird after taste in my mouth that I don’t like. I prefer my food products or beverages to either have regular sugar, honey or unsweetened.

Overall, the PINES Mighty Greens Superfood Blend, although it contains all of the nutrients of dark, leafy greens, is easy to use, and is low-calorie, it isn’t something I’d personally run to re-purchase.  At $37.50/ 8oz, it’s priced pretty high for a product in this category, especially since there are other products on the market that I’ve tried that I like and use, but costs less.

Ingredients: Organic wheatgrass, organic alfalfa leaf, organic hemp protein, organic Rebaudioside A (stevia).

    I used this stuff in college and really liked it!

  • Swallowing sand? LOL! I’m not a fan of green smoothies because of the taste (Which gives me wrinkles thanks to facial contortions) but I’m perfectly fine eating bowls of kale and spinach!

  • I used to drink something like this and hated it. Even blended with the fruits I blend with fresh kale I couldn’t get it down… so I just stick with fresh vegetables and fruit and whatever other additives I want. This is a great post though and I want to try this one out 🙂

  • I have been looking into a product very similar to this!

  • FabZilla_Kath

    Haven’t tried this yet but I eat vegetables every single day. Vegetarian here….

  • marciaf

    I know this is totally healthy but I just can’t make myself try it.

  • I haven’t used in a while, but I was using the Amazing Grass Berry flavored Green Superfood, and really liked it. Very fine grains, no settling, tasted good in a smoothie, and yep, very cleansing. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002BHSKAC/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

  • Thanks for the honest review!

    Too bad about the stevia. It leaves a horrible aftertaste and I can’t stand it.

  • You just reminded me that I need to finally get myself a Vitamix. I have this gigantic bulky Kitchenaid juicer attachment that takes a lot of space and is just a pain to clean.

  • I have tried greens before and, some I love, some I didn’t. But, one thing is for sure, it is so good for my tummy.

    • They are good for your tummy. Which greens have you tried?

      • The last ones that I tried were in pill form. They were called Sweet Wheat. I tried to find them at Sprouts but I think they are just online. The Vitamin Shoppe had a couple of powder green drinks with flavors that I LOVED!! They didn’t taste ‘green’ but, I don’t think they make them anymore.
        I have tried several types and brands. I don’t have any loyalty!!

  • It sounds like it’s something i would hate the taste of

    • The taste is definitely a turn off, especially if you dislike stevia.

  • Tina Bowling

    I’ve never tried anything like this. I might add it to my routine for the summer.

  • I have sampled various green drink supplements… I just can’t. I have a visceral reaction to them that no one wants to witness. lol

    • LOL I understand… lol I’m still laughing. I’m sorry.

  • I’ve been wanting to try something in my smoothies just hadn’t taken the time to research what that should be. This may be a good option for me. Great post!

    • I would suggest the unsweetened version. In my smoothies I usually add acai, wheatgrass, hempseed
