NUWI QUINOA SMOOTHIE REVIEW
HELLO & HAPPY THURSDAY!!
I haven’t been a bottled smoothie person since I skipped the dairy, so I was quite interested in sampling this new vegan quinoa smoothie called Nuwi. These smoothies are entirely different from any smoothie I’ve ever encountered. Whether it be the texture or the flavor, it’s very unique!!
As someone always on the go, I love to discover new vegan products for when I’m crammed for time!! If you’re open to trying innovative healthy products..
YOU JUST MAY LOVE THE NUWI QUINOA SMOOTHIE!!
The Founders of NUWI® Quinoa Smoothie
Our company was founded by a group of friends who believe that with passion, curiosity, and imagination you can achieve whatever you desire. Fearlessly determined to make pure, organic food products in a responsible and sustainable way, we decided to create a nutritious gluten free vegan healthy snack for people like ourselves who continually seek balance in mind, body and spirit.
Inspired by dreams of transforming everyday life into something better, we left the corporate world behind to pursue a more harmonious way of living and working. We push ourselves to the limit in search of beauty and truth because we believe that the
“path to achieving greater balance includes treating everyone fairly, and making nutritious vegan options available for people to enjoy“
In our search for a healthy snack – our Quinoa Smoothie – we were inspired by the nutritional wisdom of the ancient grain called quinoa. We spent a long time developing and testing quinoa-based recipes, and finally came up with our ideal formula for a perfect, healthy snack – the Quinoa Smoothie.
The NUWI® Quinoa Smoothie fulfills our dream of using quinoa in a pure, natural way that leads to a healthy, balanced diet. Because we believe that making wise choices about nourishing your body is key to health and wellbeing.

THIS FLAVOR HAPPENED TO BE MY FAVORITE!!
THE QUINOA GAVE OFF A MILD NUTTY FLAVOR BUT IT BLENDED WELL WITH THE BANANA TASTE!!
I WOULD ENJOY ONE OF THESE BEFORE MY 2 1/2 HOUR YOGA PRACTICE AND FOUND THAT IT WAS QUITE FILLING AND KEPT ME SATIATED FOR HOURS!!
Pure gluten-free organic quinoa flour
Organic agave nectar
Natural Banana flavor
I WASN’T TOO CRAZY ABOUT THIS OPTION AS THE FLAVOR WASN’T LIKE THAT OF BLUEBERRIES..
I FOUND THAT AT FIRST THE TASTE WAS AWKWARD, THEN SIP BY SIP IT STARTED TO GET BETTER WHEREAS THE BANANA FLAVOR WAS MUCH SWEETER AND MORE ENJOYABLE!!
IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A SWEET BLUEBERRY SMOOTHIE LIKE THE ONES YOU MAKE AT HOME, I WOULDN’T RECOMMEND THIS FLAVOR
NUWI DONATED OVER 300 SMOOTHIES FOR BOTH THE HEALTHY SCHOOL FOOD ORGANIZATION FALL GALA AND MY LECTURE FOR THE NUTRITION, FOOD STUDIES, AND PUBLIC HEALTH STUDENTS AT NYU!!
I HAD ENOUGH TO SHARE THE NUWI SMOOTHIES WITH THE DEPARTMENT AND OUR CLUB EAT NETWORKING MEETING!!
WHAT I DID LIKE
Complete vegan protein.

Amino Acids: Exceptionally high in Lysine, Cystine and Methionine amino acids.
No sugar added. Gluten and Lactose Free. 160 calories. Organic Certified. No GMO.
WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE?!
EACH SMOOTHIE CONTAINED ALMOST 25 GRAMS OF SUGAR IN THIS SMALL 10.oz PORTION AND THE FLAVOR STILL WASN’T THAT SWEET.
THEY SAY NO ADDED SUGAR ON THE LABEL BUT IT CLEARLY SAYS AGAVE ON THE LABEL
NO ACTUAL FRUIT IS LISTED IN THE INGREDIENTS
NATURAL FLAVORS IS LISTED AS AN INGREDIENT
