We’re all busy. And stuff simply gets harder when you’re busy.
Only recently have I started prioritizing my health, and I still find myself struggling from time to time. Whether it’s squeezing in exercise or turning down cheese fries, it can be an uphill battle, especially if you aren’t prepared. Add that to being a vegetarian who’s phasing out dairy, and I’m always a little bit worried that I’m not getting the vitamins and nutrients that I need.
Enter Kiwami Greens.
Kiwami Greens is inspired by Aojiru, a traditional Japanese greens blend known for its superior nutritional properties. It’s made with young barley leaf, ashitaba, and tea mixtures like matcha. It’s packed with calcium, vitamins B, C, and E, iron, fiber, and folic and amino acids. It’s also vegan-friendly, non-GMO and gluten free.

Some of you might be wondering, “But what do I even do with it?”
First and foremost, Kiwami Greens comes in travel-friendly packets, so you can throw a few in your bag as you leave for the day. The absolute easiest way is to simply mix with water (or almond milk) and drink. I keep packets at my desk because I basically live here.
But here are some other ways to use Kiwami Greens:
Make a smoothie. Add one packet of Kiwami Greens to your blender. Throw in a banana (I love mine frozen), a cup of almond milk, and a scoop of vanilla protein powder. Top with ice and blend until smooth.
Add to yogurt. Easy as pie. One packet of Kiwami Greens and a cup of vanilla yogurt. Divine.
Sparkling water. I’m a slave to the Soda Stream. I firmly believe everythig is living its best life when matched with sparkling water. Mix your Kiwami Greens with sparkling water for a nose-tickling treat.
Happy hour! You didn’t think I’d leave you hanging without figuring out a good cocktail use, right? Add one packet of Kiwami Greens to one cup of water and stir until dissolved. Set aside. Take another glass (I like highballs), add two tablespoons lemon juice, two tablespoons lime juice, and a packet of Splenda and muddle (need to know how to muddle? try this). Add a few mint leaves and smush around until you can smell the minty goodness. Fill the rest of the glass with ice (I like Sonic ice, it’s so summery). Add 2 oz. quality gin. Grab your Kiwami Greens mixture and fill the rest of the way. Top with a little seltzer if you like a bubble. Garnish with mint and a lime wedge. #fancymeetshealthy
