Even the coolest penguins love this shake

1 tbsp Organic Peanut Flour
1-1/4 tsp organic Pines Wheat Grass Powder
4 frozen strawberries
5 slices zucchini
12 oz water
8 oz crushed ice

Avoid green superfood blended powder mixtures

Why trust a buyer, who is looking for the cheapest ingredients possible, to determine what is in your green superfood?  That buyer likely sits in an office in some big city completely removed from farming. Dealing with suppliers from dozens of locations throughout the world, the buyer decides what you should eat!

The situation is different with Pines. We produce single ingredient products and very simple blends. We grow nearly all our own ingredients on our own 100% certified organic family farms. In fact, one of our fields is just across the road from where we bottle and ship!

CK avoids using complex blends of superfood powders in her recipes. She wants to see, touch and examine each ingredient for aroma and color as well as taste. With a blend, you cannot do that. Further, you may not be receiving the nutrition you need. For example, it is easy for a buyer to cover up poorly-colored wheatgrass with dark colored powders such as chocolate or algae.

Avoid green powders in a plastic containers or packets

From 1937 until recently, all green superfood powders were packaged in amber glass bottles with special metal caps so that the oxygen could be removed. That safeguard is very important. Charles Schnabel and other scientists discovered that oxidation devitalizes greens in plastic containers, bags or packets. Consequently, for 40 years, Pines has followed that appropriate packaging standard developed by Schnabel. Because of the special caps, you can tightly seal the bottles between uses. That results in the freshest and most vibrant ingredients for your recipes.

Most people do not eat enough dark green, leafy vegetables

Studies indicate that 9 out of 10 people do not eat enough vegetables. Because of that, they lack the health protection green foods provide. Adding a rounded teaspoon of any Pines’ green superfood to a shake or smoothie is easy and increases your daily servings of nutrient-dense vegetables. That is exactly what is missing from most diets.  Pines greens are also available in tablets and capsules.  All our products are convenient and economical ways to add more green to the diet.

We harvest our greens at the peak of nutrition. All are certified organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, Kosher, vegan, raw and gluten free.  Besides shakes for penguins and humans on a cold winter's day, you will find many other recipes in this section of our website.
