I had been looking for a good greens powder to add to my smoothies for a while, and when I heard about the Hum Nutrition Raw Beauty Green Superfood Powder I decided to give it a try. The mix of raw organic greens and adapotgenic herbs in the ingredients were really interesting to me. Reading through the ingredient list, I just saw one thing after another that I had heard would be a great supplement. I was both intrigued and put off by the mint chocolate chip flavor, but decided that it was worth trying.

Pros: Very easy to blend with almond or soy milk or into a smoothie. Tastes great, but not artificial. Good mix of greens and adaptogenic herbs in the ingredients. Cruelty-free brand. Vegan formula.
Cons: This isn’t necessarily a con, but I would love if this came in a less particular flavor that could work in any juice or smoothie blend.
The Verdict: The Hum Nutrition Raw Beauty Green Superfood Powder has been a part of my daily routine for over a month now. I haven’t seen huge differences in my body, but I do think that any supplement takes time before you really see a big impact. I find that it does help stabalize my energy and give me a little boost of energy. I do also find that it helps control my cravings. Especially when I feel stressed out and just want to eat something salty or sweet (which is probably where this being mint chocolate comes in handy). I do feel that my skin looks better since I have started drinking this daily as well. I’m going to continue to try it and see how I feel in a few months. Let me know if you would like future updates!
I sometimes have it with plain, unsweetened almond or soy milk or sometimes in a smoothie. A blend of spinach, banana, strawberries, and water goes great with this powder. I can also see avocado being a great addition to a smoothie. Or even blending the Hum Nutrition Raw Beauty powder with frozen banana for nice cream.
Have you tried the Hum Nutrition Raw Beauty Green Superfood Powder before? What did you think of it?
