But CK is also very creative with her smoothies and juices. Her variations involve as many nutrient-rich, antioxidant fruits and vegetables as possible. The USDA recommends five or more servings of per day. That's because the Centers for Disease Control says only one in ten Americans eat enough. CK's smoothies often contain that many in just one delicious glassful.

Easy to Add Another Serving of Veggies to Your Smoothie

CK usually increases the vegetables by adding a rounded teaspoon of Pines Wheat Grass powder before pushing the blend button or stirring the juice. This picture shows just a sampling of dozens of recipes she has created.

As a consultant for Pampered Chef®, CK uses food and fellowship to make a difference. She uses real food, health, and great kitchen tools! Check out @ckscooking on Instagram and Twitter for more of her recipes. You will also find her recipes and many others on the recipe tab on this website.

You Can't Inspect Ingredients in Premixed Blends

CK teaches sourcing individual ingredients rather than using complex blends.  Green superfoods need this safeguard. That's because companies can blend green food ingredients with darkly colored ingredients to hide poor color and quality.  In addition, Pines grows the only 100% organic source of whole food wheatgrass and other green superfoods.

When you select single ingredients rather than blends, you can see, smell, touch and taste each individual ingredient to check for quality.

CK Likes the Freshness of Greens in Oxygen-Free Bottles

Pines packages all its products in amber glass bottles with special metal caps containing tight seals. Because of that, the company can remove the oxygen.

This safeguard protects sensitive nutrients from the oxidation and nutrient loss. Green food products packaged in plastic tubs or paper packets lose nutrition and color. After opening a bottle from Pines, the special caps seal the product between uses to keep it fresh and vibrant.

Nearly all Pines products consist of ingredients that we grow ourselves. All products are certified organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, vegan, raw, Kosher and gluten free.
