For this Tropical Traditions review/giveaway I decided on doing their Antioxidant Omega 3 Natural Greens to see how they were. Amanda had won some on a giveaway and since they had licorice root in them, (as the ones I got to review didn’t) and Momma couldn’t have licorice root in them, I got some so she and I could try it.
The one I got was non-licorice (as you can get it with or without licorice root in it), berry flavoured. I got it and the next evening took it to the kitchen to try. Reading how much to put in the 8 oz. of water, I poured it in and mixed. Tasting it, it was at first a weird taste to my mouth. I had never liked any vitamin drinks and this one was a little bit vitaminy. It took me a while to get to liking the taste, and I still think its a bit vitaminy, but that is just me. :)
I have not yet tasted the mint flavoured one yet, but Amanda has some and said it tastes a bit better than the berry and is not such a vitaminy taste to it. She said it tastes more like chlorophyll, which is minty. I actually like the chlorophyll to drink, so I might like the mint better. Different people have different opinions about it, I’m sure.
The texture is also grainy, and it doesn’t dissolve all the way in the water, unless you stir it and stir it. As I said before, it had a vitaminy aftertaste as well. I am thinking it may be ok using it in some kind of smoothie, like a fruity one maybe. It would make sure you got it.

Here’s the lo-down on how to make the greens, since I took photos of it. :) And, the giveaway is at the end of the post, so look at the photos while you are scrolling, please. :)
Step one – get a full scoop of the greens.
Step two – pour into a glass.
Step three – look into the glass and see how much there is. :P (This is not a necessary step, but I liked the photo I took.)
The real Step three – pour in 8 oz. cold water into the glass.
Step four – stir it all up until most of it is dissolved.
Step five – drink it all gone!
