Have you ever felt 100% satisfied with your diet and nutrition goals? Unless you came out of the womb as a health guru infatuated with broccoli and spinach, probably not. If you want an easy way to add more nutrients to your diet, though, green powders might be the perfect solution.

To make these supplements, a variety of vegetables, fruits, and superfoods are dried out, then ground into a fine powder. The powder can then be mixed with water or blended into a smoothie so you get all that goodness in a single scoop.

Your individual results will vary, but there’s a good chance you’ll feel better overall if you integrate a green powder into your daily routine. Below are some of our favorites.

Best Overall: Nested Naturals Super Greens

This top-rated powder contains a long list of powdered vegetables,  superfoods, probiotics, fiber, and enzymes. They actually list all of their ingredients, which is important—you know exactly what you’re getting in each scoop.

The price is also more than fair and the flavor is more palatable than some grassy alternatives. It’s a great powder to start with if you’re unsure which one would be best.

Best Budget: Purely Inspired Organic Greens

If you want to try a greens powder but are turned off by the price tags, grab this option from Purely Inspired. This powder contains a mix of 39 different fruits, vegetables, and superfoods, like powdered broccoli, chlorella, and barley grass.

A major downside of this brand is it doesn’t list the amounts of each ingredient. However, if price is your priority, this might be something you’re willing to overlook in exchange for the great value.

Best Flavor: Garden of Life Raw Organic

Can’t stomach the grassy taste of green powders? This chocolate-flavored option from Garden of Life masks most of the veggies and makes drinking your vitamins more fun.

Some reviewers even say it’s kid-approved if you’ve been looking for a way to get more vegetables into your child’s diet. This brand is well-known among and approved by the health community.

Best Splurge: Athletic Greens Ultimate Daily

Yes, this Athletic Greens powder is crazy-expensive. But it’s also a powerhouse of a mix! It has one of the highest concentrations of nutrients on the market, blending 75 different vitamins, superfoods, probiotics, and more.

We’re talking powdered carrots, beet powder, dandelion root, kelp, reishi mushrooms, acerola, plus 68 others. Athletic Greens is also National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) Certified, which means its products must meet that organization’s strict standards for consumable goods.

According to the Amazon reviews, this powder also dissolves better than most and tastes good enough that you’ll actually look forward to drinking it. If you’re cool with splurging on a greens powder, this is the one to pick.

Best Antioxidants: Amazing Grass Green Superfood

These powdered greens contain an extra dose of powdered berries for an antioxidant boost. Each serving contains 15,000 Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) units to help your body effectively neutralize harmful free radicals.

The sweet berry flavor is also more palatable than many other options.

Best Protein: Orgain Organic Protein and Superfoods

This protein powder base by Orgain contains a mix of greens and superfoods. It’s great to add to smoothies or drink on its own.

You’ll only taste the vanilla or chocolate flavor from the protein powder, so this is also an excellent option for people who can’t palate the traditional taste of most green supplements.

Best Probiotics: Vibrant Health Green Vibrance

This greens powder contains 25 billion probiotics from 12 different strains for aided digestion. The nutrition label also clearly discloses all the ingredients and how much of each superfood you’re getting.

The flavor is pretty earthy, however, so you might want to add this powder to a smoothie to sweeten it up a bit.

Best On-the-Go: Amazing Grass Effervescent Tablets

These are perfect to take to work or when traveling. The flavor is also milder than other alternatives.
