Healthy Skoop {CLOSED Review + Giveaway!}

The winner for this giveaway was announced Monday, July 13, 2014.

I’m always looking for ways to pack more nutrition into my day–especially when I’m busy!  While I love eating lots of fruits and veggies to get my daily fill of vitamins, minerals, and fiber sometimes I need a little extra boost for those times when I don’t have the chance to grocery shop and stock up on fresh foods or to prep all my food for healthy meals for the week. A few weeks ago, the kind people from a company called “Skoop” reached out to me asking if I would review one of their products called Skoop A-Game. Skoop 2 I had never heard of Skoop before, which makes sense because this is a new company based out of Boulder, CO (<–Colorado!). So, you are probably wondering what Skoop is too! Skoop A-Game is a non-GMO, super-food powdered formula that is rich in antioxidants, adaptogens, and probiotics. There is no dairy, soy, or gluten in this powder (which makes it allergen-free!!) and Skoop recommends using it to fight stress, bad gut bacteria, and inflammation. Skoop 3 All of that sounds great, but I wanted to know what was actually IN this powder.  This is where it really gets good.  The powder is made up of:

  • Super Veggies (broccoli, carrots, spinach, parsley, beets, and kale)
  • Antioxidants (rosemary powder extract, green tea powder extract, etc)
  • Adaptogen herbs
  • Greens (barley grass, wheat grass, spirulina, chlorella)
  • Fruit (apple, blueberry, pomegranate, acai, cranberry, goji berry)
  • Fiber Blend (flax seed, chia seed)
  • Other ingredients (probiotics and also stevia and honey, etc for flavor!)

Now we’re talking…those are real food ingredients and that makes me very excited :)  This isn’t a meal replacement shake, but it’s the perfect add-in to oats, smoothies, or just plain almond milk to get an extra punch of nutrients into my day…which can be very helpful during busy times in my life (like now!) Something else cool?  10% of the profit made from each bag is donated to a national nonprofit that provides fresh produce to schools.  Love that! So, the folks at scoop sent me a large bag of the Skoop A-Game in Sweetgreens and some smaller packets of Chocofresh which has a slight cocoa flavor. Skoop 2 Skoop 1 Skoop recommended simply mixing a scoop of Skoop into a cup of almond milk… Skoop 2 Skoop 1 And it tasted pretty good! I’m not going to lie and say it was AMAZING…it did taste a little “green” but knowing that I was putting all of these veggies, herbs, fruits, and greens into my body made the flavor worth it. The way that I enjoyed my Skoop most was in my morning oatmeal with blueberries and bananas.  While it didn’t look very appetizing (think GREEN oatmeal!) it did have a pleasant sweet flavor because the Skoop is slightly sweet due to the honey, agave, goji, and blueberries. Now for the FUN part–Skoop and I are giving away a bag of Skoop A-Game to ONE Treble in the Kitchen Reader to try for themselves!

  1. The easiest way for me to get extra nutrients in when I’m busy and on the go is to whip up a quick smoothie, which I usually have everything on hand for. I like to toss in some frozen fruit, a big handful of kale or spinach, chia seeds, cacao powder, maybe a little peanut butter & almond milk. Would love to try Skoop in my smoothies or oatmeal (love that ingredient list)!

  2. I love that it comes in smaller packets for easy on the go meal/snack…as I think I’ll be needing those even more soon ;)

  8. Green smoothies or a bottled green juice in a pinch.

  9. Angie Jerde says:

    I try to pack raw veggies in my lunches to snack on throughout the day instead of poor choices. I also load my smoothies with greens to get that extra kick!

  10. Laura W says:

    Smoothies! Super fast and you can get a solid serving of fruits, vegetables and protein all at once.

  11. anastacia mosher says:

    My favorite way to sneak in nutrients when I’m busy is by putting them in my food. I have to pack my lunch for work and I also do a lot of meal prepping so I pack them in to whatever I’m making. I make a lot of stir fry, healthy casseroles, and salads chock full of veggies.

  12. I’m all about veggie smoothies when busy. Greens, celery, cucumber, a fruit of some sort, and typically protein powder and chia or coconut oil.

  16. I usually add spirulina to my water and try to keep dried fruits and veggie snacks on me like dry-roasted edamame or chickpeas or dried, no-sugar added pineapple.

  17. I love using Swiss chard leaves for wraps in place of bread.

  18. The Healthy Skoop sounds like a great way to get a quick and easy boost of nutrients. I typically go to smoothies. They are fairly fast and I can dump in a bunch of whatever fruits/veggies/greens I have on hand.

  19. Perfect breakfast option to drink up during my drive to work!
