A FAIR SHAKE
There are many health food products out there that try to pass themselves off as nutritional shakes. However, take a closer look at their ingredients list and you might see a few elements that are decidedly unhealthy, like fructose, corn syrup, and high amounts of sodium. Not so with Orgain.
Completely plant-based, Orgain Nutritional Shakes are organic and free of soy, gluten, and GMOs. They feature an energetic blend of fruits and veggies, like kale, beets, blueberries, and acai.
However, contrary to their mix berries and leafy greens, there is not a hint of fruit in the flavor. Instead, they taste like real vanilla and chocolate shakes. Sweet and rich, they are best served ice cold, pulled straight from the fridge (they are also shelf stable so you can store them in the cupboard if the fridge is full). Orgain's shakes are also really filling and a treat for those between-meal hunger pangs that can hit mid-day. The mix of brown rice, chia and flax seeds adds additional healthful benefits, like increased regularity and decreased risk of cancer and heart disease. Plus, each 11 oz serving boasts 16 grams of protein – derived from brown rice, chia seeds, and flax seeds – which is bonus because who couldn’t use more protein in their diets?
These shakes are great for kids, too.
