I am often asked, “What is the best green drink powder?” Typically I respond by directing people to this site where they can read the reviews for themselves. I have the superfood drinks ranked with a score and try to index them in such a way that it’s easy to navigate.
One challenge I’ve faced in trying to rank green drink powder supplements is that sometimes they’re hard to compare apples-to-apples (pun-intended). For instance, Dr. Schulze’s Superfood Plus is an extraordinary product. It’s one of the best-known, most respected superfood products in the industry. But it is comprised of just superfood powders. It doesn’t contain much of anything else and this is by design.
Whereas, take Kylea’s Total Living Drink Greens or Living Fuel’s Super Greens… These are powerhouse products. They contain superfoods, enzymes, probiotics, protein, herbs, antioxidants, amino acids and more. They are more expensive and can be used as a complete meal-replacement. So trying to compare the Total Living Drink for example, to Dr. Schulze’s Superfood is challenging because obviously the TLD is way, way better from the scope of label ingredients. But that does not mean that Dr. Schulze’s is not a good product, because it most certainly is. It would be like comparing a high-end sports car to a high-end motorcycle. They are both means of transportation but for altogether different purposes.
With that being said, I’ll break down the best superfood drinks in three categories: All Inclusive Meal Replacement Drinks, Mid-Range Superfood Drinks and Exclusively Superfood Powders. (I know these category titles are tedious but I’m not clever enough to come up with anything better right now.)
The Best All-Inclusive Meal-Replacement Green Drink Powder Products
There’s simply two products that stand apart from all others. What’s amazing is that there’s nothing out there that I’ve seen that even comes close, which is surprising do to the bourgeoning popularity of the superfood drink industry.
In my opinion, the #1 superfood drink product in the marketplace is Kylea’s Total Living Drink Greens. Read the complete review, judge for yourself. But it contains 12 grams of isolate protein, almost 14 grams of pure superfoods, digestive enzymes, antioxidants, cleansing herbs, probiotics, amino acids, and added vitamins and minerals. It’s truly the “Bentley” of supplements. One-of-a-kind, desert-island type of product.
The superfoods are juice extracts. This means the 14 grams of superfoods is the juice of the produce, not just the vegetable powders that most products have. The phytonutrients are found in the juice, not the pulp. So the potency levels are unbelievable. To date the Total Living Drink Greens has the highest ORAC value I’ve ever seen -almost 155,000 per serving. And each serving is 38 grams! That is an enormous amount of nutrient-dense calories in one serving. The taste is more pungent than others because of the juice extracts (stronger potencies) and because they chose not to use the types of sweeteners that would compromise the efficacy of the product. But the taste is not nearly as bad as a lot of other products out there.
The other #1 superfood drink (I have it ranked at #2 on this site but it is extremely close) is LivingFuel’s Super Greens. Another amazing product that has everything in it but the kitchen sink. (Kitchen sinks are not healthy to ingest.) Like the TLD, LivingFuel Super Greens is extraordinary and even has chia seeds in it. If you compare the labels of the two, you have to be really savvy to see much of a difference. They are both profoundly good products. Read LivingFuel’s Super Greens review.
The Best Mid-Range Green Drink Powder Products
Mid-range simply means a lower-priced product, with less stuff in it. These products are terrific and are high-quality. They just don’t have as much under the hood. Think of them as the Acura’s or Lexus’ of the superfood drink powders. Not Bentleys or Ferraris but still very good.
The #1 Mid-Range Superfood Drink in my opinon is Vibrant Health’s Green Vibrance. This is a remarkable product that excels in all categories… the amount and quality of its superfoods, the well-roundedness of the overall formula, including an extraordinary antioxidant panel, and all at a terrific value. Read the review here.
If you are looking for a mid-range superfood formula, this is the best product in that category in the industry.
The #2 ranked product in this category is Garden of Life Perfect Food Raw. Read the review here. Excellent product with superb superfoods and other nutrients. It contains enzymes and probiotics as well. The list of superfood ingredients really are a “garden of life”. It is an extremely well-made formula by Dr. Jordan Rubin and is priced attractively at only around $30.
Each serving is 10 grams (which is pretty much every product in this category) so you are getting less than 1/3 the amount of nutrition than the all-inclusive products, but it is proportionately less expensive too.
The #3 Mid-Range Superfood Drink is a tie between All Day Energy Greens and Amazing Grass Green Superfood. They are very similar products. Read All Day Energy Greens review. Read Amazing Grass Green Superfood review. I might give a slight edge to All Day Energy Greens because it contains 10.6 grams per serving versus 8 grams per serving with Amazing Grass Green Superfood. I like the taste of All Day Energy Greens better too. I like that Amazing Grass included an excellent antioxidant profile. All in all, you are splitting hairs as to which product is better for you. Both very good choices.
Exclusively Green Drink Powder Products
The best product in the marketplace, in my opinion, that is exclusively superfood powder is Dr. Schulze’s Superfood Plus. Read the Dr. Schulze’s Superfood Plus review. It’s emphasis is on algae and though this contributes to its’ “swampy” taste, it is an excellent product. Dr. Schulze began making superfood products when Jimmy Carter was president. Yeah, Jimmy Carter. What’s extraordinary about that, is no one was doing anything like that back then. In those days, we were just hearing about the importance of taking a one-a-day multiple vitamin and this guy is creating a cutting-edge superfood formula. Amazing. They also make their own products in their own facility. Their quality-control and methods are superb and through the almost 4 decades, their reputation has never been tarnished.
One thing about Dr. Schulze’s Superfood Plus is that it is pricey. But each serving is 1 ounce, so you are getting quite about of nutrients in every serving.
I hope this helps and I encourage you to do your own research. These are my opinions and though I have a lot of experience in this area, find a product that works for you. The important thing, is to engage in a lifestyle where you are ingesting God-given nutrients that are found in superfoods.
