All The Greens Without The Cereal Grasses
Ever since going Paleo, something I’ve wanted but had trouble finding was a green powder. While some of them out there are pretty clean in terms of their ingredients, it is really hard to find something that does not contain cereal grasses, which you are probably also trying to avoid if you’re grain-free and Paleo like us. Then, we found Paleovalley’s Organic Supergreens! They are a delicious, nutritious and energizing blend of 19 certified organic, raw, antioxidant-rich, health-promoting superfoods that blend easily, and it is super refreshing. All with zero cereal grasses!
What These Supergreens Do Include
Here is a snapshot of what you get with the Organic Supergreens product we’ve been using.
- No added sugars, artificial sweeteners, preservatives or sugar alcohols
- Includes digestive enzymes for maximum absorption
- Absolutely no cereal grasses or fillers
- Gently dried to preserve nutrients
- Soy-free, Grain-free & Dairy-free
- Certified Gluten-free
Packed With Superfoods
Ok, I really can’t even list ALL of the superfoods included in this Organic Supergreens blend, but just to name a few of my personal favorites here are some of the goodies packed into this easy-to-use mix.
- Organic Spirulina – A micro-algae that is 60% protein by weight and contains all essential amino acids. Spirulina is loaded with iron and vitamin K as well as other pigments with antioxidant properties.
- Organic Sea Kelp – A sea vegetable with a diverse nutrient profile. It is an excellent source of iodine and has been shown to be a potent anti-inflammatory, improve blood glucose levels, and slow cancer growth.

- Organic Ginger – Loaded with nutrients and bioactive compounds that have powerful benefits. Known to help stabilize blood sugar, fight inflammation, improve digestion and more.

Below are 3 ways to utilize and enjoy these Organic Supergreens!
1. Just Like The Package Says
Sometimes this is a good idea and other times green powders don’t end up tasting too good in just water. This is a green powder you can REALLY just mix into water and enjoy! Seriously. It almost has a fruity, minty, green tea flavor, which makes this the first and easiest way to sneak more greens into your day. Our recommendation is to mix it into hot water and drink it like a tea. We like to blend it up in our Vitamix so it gets a little frothy and latte like. I’ve read that drinking warm water helps aid digestion so your body can absorb and utilize the nutrients. I also just tend to crave warm beverages. Give it a try, and let us know what you think! This might just become your new favorite morning routine!
2. Supergreen Energy Balls
Because who doesn’t love a bite (or two-bite) sized mound of goodness?! These Supergreen Energy Balls are our second way to sneak more greens into your day. We always love quick and easy bites we can take on-the-go or grab-and-go for a little afternoon pick me up. These guys are the best! They’re made with healthy nuts, almond butter, coconut and Organic Supergreens and sweetened with dates. Plus, they are no-bake which is always a good idea!
These easy, no-bake Supergreen Energy Balls are the perfect ball of fuel to help you sneak more greens!
Place all of the ingredients in a food processor. Pulse until ingredients are combined and grainy. Stop the processor and scrape the sides down.
Start the food processor again and run continuously until the mixture starts to form into a ball. You may need to stop and scrape the sides down again a couple times.
Once the mixture balls up, stop the food processor and carefully remove the blade. Roll tablespoon sized amounts into balls and place in a glass dish. If the mixture is still a little grainy, you may have to pat the balls into shape versus rolling, but they will firm up in the fridge. Once all of the mixture is rolled into balls, cover and store in the fridge to have on hand for snacks.
3. No-Bake Supergreen Tarts
Our third way to utilize Paleovalley’s Organic Supergreens and sneak more greens in is with these easy, no-bake tarts. They’re like a little mini cheesecake, but with nutrient dense Supergreens and healthy fats from avocado. They’re sweetened with maple syrup, so there are no refined sugars and they’re super easy to make! Plus, they look pretty cool too! You can top them with whatever sounds good to you. We like shredded coconut and cacao nibs, but you could do some chopped nuts, fresh fruit, chocolate chips, etc. There are endless options.
These no-bake Supergreen Tarts are a healthy treat to enjoy and sneak more greens!
- shredded unsweetened coconut
- cacao nibs
Place all of the crust ingredients in a food processor and process continuously until the mixture is grainy and sticks together.
Line a regular sized muffin tin with parchment or silicone liners and dump large spoonfuls of the crust into the bottom of each liner. Press the crust into the bottoms of the liners. Set aside. (You can also use a mini muffin pan or a combo of the two)
Wipe out the food processor with a paper towel. Then, place all of the filling ingredients inside. Pulse until all of the ingredients are smooth and creamy. You may need to stop and scrape the sides down a couple times.
Spoon out the filling into each liner and spread it out with the back of the spoon.
Add desired toppings, and place in the freezer to set for at least an hour. Once set, remove from liners and store in a freezer-safe airtight container in the freezer.
