CK's Cherry Chocolate Espresso Smoothie Will Inspire You to Try Others
CK designed this cherry chocolate smoothie as one of many that use Pines green superfoods as ingredients. As a result of her healthy lifestyle and diet, she is the picture of health and fitness. CK's recipes use single ingredient or simple blends. She avoids complex green food blends with many ingredients because she cannot examine each one for color, taste, aroma and other quality standards. She realizes that the company on the label does not itself mix the "meals" and "mixtures". Instead, contract manufacturers mix them. Their buyers usually look for the cheapest possible ingredients. Hence, they can cover up brown colored "greens" in these mixtures with ingredients that have strong color like algae and chocolate.
With Pines, we grow nearly all the ingredients ourselves. Our facilities for drying, packaging and shipping are right across the road from one of the fields where we grow them. Pines is the only producer of green super foods that can say that. Pines was not only the first green super food (introduced in 1976) but also the only one that doesn't package in plastic (made with fossil fuel). Instead, we package all our products in amber glass bottles with special metal caps. This allows us to remove the oxygen from the bottles to prevent the loss of nutrition and color that always occurs with green superfoods packaged in plastic tubs and packets.
100% Organic Farmers Not Owned by GMO Corporations and Agribusiness
For 40 years, Pines has offered the highest quality green superfoods to increase the vegetable nutrition in your diet. Massive GMO monopolies like Coke and Pepsi produce green juices such as Odwalla, Suja and Naked. Contrast that with the fact that sincere organic family farmers grow Pines green super foods. We dry them at low temperatures within minutes to capture the peak nutritional density. It would require more than $300 worth of those green juices from the GMO corps to equal the nutrition in one bottle of Pines!
We package All Pines' products amber glass bottles with special metal caps that allow us to remove the oxygen. As a result of that safeguard, we prevent the rapid nutrient loss of green powders packaged in plastic tubs or paper packets. After opening, the tight-fitting metal caps allow you to tightly seal the products between uses for the freshest, most vibrant whole food green juice or smoothie possible. All Pines' products are certified organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, vegan, raw, Kosher and gluten free.
A Company Dedicated to Sustainable Methods
More than 100 investors started Pines in 1976. The average investment was $200. They put up money because they believed in our goals of organic farming and feeding the hungry. Our record of contributions reflects our success in those goals. We chose the Pine tree as our emblem in 1976 as an world-renown symbol of the peace found in nature. Hence, your antioxidant-recovery smoothie supports organic farming as well as your good health.

The Centers for Disease Control found that only one in ten people eat enough dark green veggies. They also found dark green veggies protect us from disease common to modern society. That's why the USDA food plate (at left) made veggies the most important food group.
No matter how many vegetables you eat, you probably need more. PINES products cost less than other vegetables and provide more nutrition. Please use our store locator to find a location near you where you can buy Pines. Also, feel free to order online.
