I’ve been buying Amazing Grass Green Superfood off Amazon for a couple years now. I’ll be honest, I’m not going to say that I can necessarily feel a difference when I’m using it, BUT I feel a little better knowing I’m getting a little extra healthy greens in my diet on a regular basis that I might not otherwise. I do not recommend drinking it by itself…. tastes like alfalfa with a bit of flavor lol but mix it with some Zippfizz (there is a Berry Flavor Amazing Grass), SlimFast (or other health drink/smoothie), or a mocha and it blends pretty well.
Today I will show you a very simple recipe for mixing with a, mostly, healthy iced mocha. I am using real sugar in the recipe, but you can substitute with your favorite sweetener if you like. I realize the cream is going to give it a high fat content, but hey, you’ve got the high fat, low carb thing going on now where cream is perfectly acceptable, besides being delicious! (the sugar kind of cancels out the low carb idea, but use a natural sweetener and there you go!)
1 scoop of Chocolate Amazing Grass Green Superfood (click the link to find it on Amazon. I buy the big canister to save money but they do have a smaller container)
2 tablespoons sugar (or use your favorite sweetener such as Splenda, Stevia, etc….)
1 cup ice cubes
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup hot coffee, or 2 shots of espresso
Top off with water (or more coffee if you like it stronger!)
First, gather your ingredients while you brew your coffee.
Next, dump a scoop of the Amazing Grass Green Superfood, the vanilla and the sugar into your cup
Pour in your hot coffee and stir well.
The ice cubes come next
Then the cream……. YUM!
Stir well, and top off your iced mocha if you need to with water (or more coffee!)
Let me know what you think of this yummy, green iced mocha recipe in the comments!
