There is just something about drinking a green juice or smoothie that makes me feel like a million bucks. I'm a major believer in getting in your greens, and try to get at least a few into my diet on a daily basis. Sometimes, that isn't always the easiest thing to do (nor do most people feel like dropping $10 on a green juice from Juice Press on the reg). This is where ALOHA comes in. I discovered ALOHA Daily Good Greens a few months ago when a friend mentioned to me that they used it, so I decided to try it out. Needless to say, I'm slightly obsessed. It's almost easier that drinking a green juice! The Daily Good Greens is a powder full of all the essential super foods you need on a daily basis - such as coconut, wheatgrass, lemon, ginger, spirulina, spinach and more. Every ingredient is organic, and it's jam packed with everything you need to make your skin radiant, boost your immune system, and give you energy.
I wasn't kidding was I? The ingredients speak for themselves. Another awesome benefit of this power is the fiber - it really does fill you up, even if you're only mixing it with water, although I wouldn't recommend that. It definitely tastes best in a smoothie or mixed in with something that has a flavor. One of my favorite ways to drink it, if I don't have the resources to make a smoothie, is with coconut water.
It is incredibly easy to incorporate into your daily routine, whether you throw the powder in a smoothie, into water/juice, or into your yogurt/oatmeal in the mornings. It doesn't taste bad at all (it's sweetened naturally with coconut), and if you put it in the right recipe, you can't even taste it! Speaking of recipes... ALOHA lists some great recipes and ways to incorporate your powder into your foods on their website. My absolute favorite, go-to smoothie recipe is below.
