My favorite Amazing Grass flavor!
I have been drinking Amazing Grass for over a year and a half now- every day- and I just love it. I'm a fitness instructor, I teach high intensity classes (dance) and I'm a pesco-lacto-ovo vegetarian. I'm also 45 and I felt that I needed More- greens, protein, nutrients, superfoods- to get and keep me going, as I was getting tired easily with all my classes. This worked a charm, so I obviously have continued to buy it. Bonus being that my skin and hair and nails benefitted immensely, and it just makes you look and feel good, which is the point. Also, a lot of people think I am way younger than I am- part of that is obviously genetic, and sports, but I can see the difference in my skin tone and hair sheen and general overall health, and I look "fresher" with Amazing Grass, as the months go by, than I did before it.
I discovered Amazing Grass at GNC- I bought a small tub and fell in love with it- the classic (orange container). Then I discovered Vitacost- the prices are so much better (obviously, than GNC, but even other online sellers) that I always use Vitacost. Plus the quality is impeccable, and shipping is fast.
Anyway, back to amazing grass: I would always have the original on hand, and also try out the other flavors. (I buy the 28 oz tubs). I admit, I haven't tried the lime-energy one yet, nor the creamsicle, but I want to and will. But until I tried Vanilla Chai, I kept going back to the classic as my favorite, and didn't even buy a 2nd tub of any other flavor.
Until Vanilla Chai
I actually avoided getting this for a bit because I thought it would be very chai-like- meaning lots of cinnamon/ginger/nutmeg/star anise etc flavor, which I'm not so into. However, I do like vanilla-flavored things, so I eventually got it, and I'm so glad I did.
It's very pleasant- sweet, but not too sweet, just a really nice flavor. It's much less earthy-tasting than the other flavors I've tried (mind you, earthy tasting doesn't bother me, this one is just more neutral).
I mix mine with water (with the scoop that comes with it) (look for it, it's in there :)), and hemp protein (there is hemp protein in AG, but I use more) and drink it with a straw, pretty straightforward.
Even with hemp powder mixed in (which is just plain, powdered hemp, and totally unsweetened) and plain water, Vanilla Chai doesn't need any additional sweetening (for me) so it's really easy.
In summer I mix it with frozen berry smoothies.
I get the impression that there is always a bit less in the Vanilla Chai tubs than the other AG flavors, but maybe it just settles differently, or because I like it so much more :) It's my go-to Amazing Grass. I wish they did deals for AG sometimes- BOGOs or sales- but it's great that Vitacost has better prices to begin with, and also does the send and save (which I use) to get further 10% off, and that makes it much more accessible and affordable. THANK YOU VITACOST!!

Amazing Grass is simply a great way to start the day out. Since I've been using it, I have experience more energy throughout the day. It taste great and ingredients are safe and been through extensive testing.

I used to drink my shakes for lunch but I find drinking them in the morning more convenient for me. I love this shake, but flavor wise it's not bad just prefer French Vanilla a little more. Overall great product and longtime fan :)
