Today called for another Amazing Grass adventure. I was in the mood for some chocolate so I ripped opened an Amazing Meal Chocolate Infusion packet. Amazing meals are a satisfying blend of protein and superfoods that provides amazing energy and amazing health. The suggested use is to mix the packet (32.6 grams) with 10 or more oz of water or milk, or mix it into a smoothie. Naturally, the chocolate infusion blend is brown. My brown monster consisted of one packet of Chocolate Infusion, 1 cup of Unsweetened Almond Breeze, 1 frozen banana and ice. The perfectly portioned powder packet made making my green monster super easy. The color turned into a deep chocolate brown color. There is a wheat grass taste to the smoothie, but the chocolate flavor did a good job at making it less detectable. Again, I was super energized and satisfied after drinking my yummy Brown Monster. I might be taking this for granted, but it is worth to mention that Amazing Grass powders mixes really well in liquid and does not turn chalky like some other smoothie mixes and protein powders. This tasted like a chocolate banana smoothie with a hint of wheat grass taste. I liked it. One packet is 110 calories, 1 WW, zero cholesterol, 10 grams of protein, 13 grams of carbohydrates, and 6 grams of fiber along with a whole slew of vitamins and minerals. Vitamin A 80%, Vitamin C 4-%, Vitamin K 40%, Riboflavin 16%, Niacin 2%, Vitamin B6 3%, Folic Acid 5%, Cobalamin (B12) 20%, Calcium 3%, Iron 10%, Iodine 5%, Selenium 5%, Manganese 8%, Sodium 5%, Potassium3%, and Chlorophyll 25 milligram (based on a 2,000 calorie diet).
