Default Tasty fruit and veggies powder/supplement? (reasonable priced?)

Is that even possible? I am searching for a palatable reasonably priced supplement/powder.

I know there are fabulous (and expensive) ones out there. What I need is something low cost that doesn't taste horrid

I’m leaning towards spirulina and chlorella

Default Re: Tasty fruit and veggies powder/supplement? (reasonable priced?)

I saw one at Costco the other day but I didn't look at it closely.

Amazon has tons of greens powders.

I love chlorella. I haven't taken it in years, though. I love the T-Tapp alfalfa but I only buy it when it's on sale. Which I think it is right now or will.be soon (they're having their 12 days of Christmas sale, a different item on sale each day).

Unfortunately, palatable is not a word I associate with any I've tried. I've had to mix with orange juice and basically choke it down as fast as possible. Will be great if anyone comes up with one.

Default Re: Tasty fruit and veggies powder/supplement? (reasonable priced?)

I used to take a greens powder that I thought tasted good. I wish I could remember the brand. I have no idea. Maybe if I look through my Amazon order history . . . but I think I bought it at the local health food store on sale.

With capsules you have to take SO many, like 9 or 10.

I buy whole goji berries at the Asian market and blend a tablespoon in my smoothies. Canít taste it. They have some of the highest antioxidants of anything.

We use Green Vibrance that I buy on Amazon. It isn't good by itself, but mixed with almond milk and enough honey it is pretty good.

Default Re: Tasty fruit and veggies powder/supplement? (reasonable priced?)

I've taken those as capsules at various times and taste hasn't ever been an issue. (I'm picky - I don't like liquid supplements or giant tablets) Generally I have just found something that's well rated on Amazon.
