Activz Organic Kale Powder Review & Giveaway


I feel pretty lucky that 3 out of my 4 kids actually enjoy eating fruits and veggies, but I still feel that it wouldn't hurt them to eat more.  Of course I still have that one child who refuses to eat his veggies.

I love the idea of sneaking veggies to food without the kids even noticing!

Activz‘s revolutionary new line of produce powders helps you quickly increase the nutritional value of any meal. This preservative-free whole-food powder line—available in a variety of organic fruit, vegetable and grass options—retains all the nutrition of fresh produce while also being shelf-stable. 


I decided to try the organic and non-GMO Kale Powder.

Here are some benefits to using it:
  • Provide the same nutrition, color and flavor as the original produce.
  • Keep for years without the use of preservatives.
  • Contain no artificial colors, flavors or nutrients.
  • Reduce or eliminate the hassle of fruit and veggie prep.
The kale in this canister originates from a 5th-generation family farm, located in the lush Willamette Valley of northern Oregon, well-known for its high-quality organic crops and sustainable farming practices.

There are so many fun options to enjoy this powder:
  • Add 1 serving to a morning smoothie.
  • Whisk as the last ingredient into sauces, soups and vinaigrettes.
  • Fold into yogurt, baked goods and more.
  • Pour as thickening agent into any mixture.
  • Sprinkle onto salad or sandwich fixings.
  • Use as an ingredient in your own recipes.
I was making tuna patties last night, and decided to sneak in some kale powder.  It folded-in great, didn't change the flavor, and I feel great that we all had some extra vegetables in our diner.

 
I can't wait to add it to more food.  Activz offers a whole variety of products, check them out here.
