Zenberry Greens is a chocolate superfood protein powder packed with leafy greens, probiotics, enzymes, grasses and algae to help support the liver, digestion and the immune system. It is also great for athletic recovery, and can give your body the nutrition it needs to help it perform at its best. It is a no-compromise blend of incredible raw, organic superfoods and highly digestible plant-based protein. All of this in a convenient powder that doesn't taste like grass clippings or medicine. It actually tastes like a chocolate milk-shake!
Raw - Vegan - Non-GMO - Organic - Soy-Free - No Added Sugar
Brown Rice Protein
Raw whole-grain brown rice protein, including the germ, endosperm, and bran. This is not your ordinary protein powder. First, it's completely raw and vegan. It is created with a low temperature (never exceeds 90 degrees F), natural enzyme process that uses neither chemicals nor acid hydrolysis. With a digestion efficiency rating of 98.2%, it is more bio-available than any other comparable protein and actually aides in the digestion of many other nutrients. Free of gluten, solvents, GMOs, radiation, artificial flavors, artificial preservatives, or artificial colors and it contains all 9 essential amino acids as well as many non-essential amino acids in a completely balanced amino acid profile. It is also high in Tocopherols and Tocotrienols, powerful antioxidants known collectively as Super Vitamin E. This is due to the unique bio-fermentation processing method which preserves the bran of the whole grain brown rice with the sprouted endosperm. Naturally rich in vitamin B1, B2, B3, iron, potassium and phosphorus, our protein helps shuttle essential amino acids to the cells as quickly as possible, along with the minerals the body needs to focus energy and apply it effectively..
Chocolate! Yes, in its natural form. We add a healthy amount of raw, organic cacao powder. Raw cacao is one of nature’s most powerful superfoods with one of the highest levels of antioxidants on earth! More than blue berries, acai, pomegranates or goji berries combined! Specific antioxidants like polyphenols, catechins and epicatechins help to fight off free radicals, giving you a healthy, complete superfood known as the Food of the Gods. In addition, flavonols help the body produce Nitric Oxide, a compound essential for proper heart function. Free of chemicals, hexane and solvents, our cacao powder offers a powerful boost of phenylethylamine (PEA) and anandamide, which both enhance positive feelings (Love). It is also the #1 source of magnesium of any food as well as high levels of iron, zinc, manganese, copper, tryptophan, and serotonin. Our certified organic cacao powder is created from beautiful, clean, microbe-free 100% Arriba Nacional Fino de Aroma Pure Cacao Beans from Ecuador and is prepared by cold-pressing the beans to yield a decadent, antioxidant-rich powder and to separate the oil from the fiber.
For endurance and energy we added raw organic maca root powder. Maca is a member of the cruciferous family of plants. It is a distant relative of the common radish. It is grown high in the Andes between 11,000 and 14,000ft and its nutritional qualities come from having to survive in such a harsh environment. Maca's reputation as a powerful strength and stamina enhancer as well as libido-enhancing food-herb stretches back into prehistory. Maca, like goji berries and ginseng, is a powerful adaptogen, which means it has the ability to balance and stabilize the body's systems (cardiovascular system, nervous system, musculature, lymphatic system, etc.). Rich in calcium, magnesium,phosphorous, potassium, sulfur and iron, and containing trace minerals, such as zinc, copper, selenium, manganese and silica.
A popular fruit grown in the Andes. It has a rich, sweet, maple flavor (it is the #1 ice cream flavor in Peru) and is a great source of fiber, beta carotene, iron and niacin (B3). We add this to help balance the flavor of our mix while still adding nutrients.
Mesquite powder comes from grinding the ripe seed pods of the mesquite tree into a fine powder. It was a food staple of Native Americans who lived in the desert regions of North America. High in protein, a good course of calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron and zinc. It is also rich in the amino acid lysine. Mesquite has a sweet, rich molasses like flavor with a hint of caramel.
We all know that vegetables, especially leafy greens, are nutritional powerhouses and we should be eating more of them. This is easier said than done, though, right? Now it’s easy. We selected the most powerful vegetables & grasses for Zenberry Green but don’t worry, it still tastes like chocolate! Hooray!

We use only Nova Scotia Dulse and Icelandic kelp which have been grown in the wild, carefully harvested and dried at low temperatures.
Spirulina / Chlorella
These are both aquatic algae packed with protein. Actually, gram for gram, they have much more protein than beef. Spirulina can be up to 71% protein, the highest of any food on earth. They also contain chlorophyll, beta-carotene (vit A), B Vit, Vit E & K, essential fatty acids, 8 essential amino acids, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and as much iron as red meat. The present of “the master antioxidant, superoxide dismutase helps make these algae very effective for detoxing the body of heavy metals and toxins.
The Probiotic Complex
(1.5 billion cells per serving) helps to support your digestive tract with a potent mix of probiotics including: L. Rhamnosus L. Salivarius, L. Plantarum, S. Thermophilis, L. Bulgaricus, L. Paraasei. These probiotics increase the absorption of the natural vitamins and minerals present in all of these superfoods and help to repopulate the beneficial flora of the digestive track. Ayurdevic medicine believes the immune system is located in your digestive track so keeping it strong and healthy is important for your overall health.

Enzymes help with digestion of all the superfoods in Zenberry. Our enzyme complex contains amylase, lipase, protease, cellulase, bromelain (from pineapple), and alpha galactosidase. (all from aspergillus).
- alpha galactosidase
Himalayan Pink Salt
Every ingredient in Zenberry has been well thought out and must provide a nutritional benefit, as well as, good taste. This even includes our salt. We chose Himalayan Pink salt because it has a rich mineral content that includes over 84 minerals and trace elements such as: calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper and iron. This salt is recognized for its beautiful pink color, high mineral content, and its therapeutic properties. Regular consumption of Himalayan Pink Salt provides essential minerals, trace elements, balances electrolytes, supports proper nutrient absorption, eliminates toxins, balances the body’s pH, normalizes blood pressure, and increases circulation and conductivity.

I've been taking zenberry green for the past two years almost and it's the best vegan probiotic protein powder I have tried. It's also incredibly yummy!!!! I know and trust the co founders and they have taken great care in sourcing the key ingredients. It is my and my husbands morning fuel every day and post workout meal as well. A day without zenberry is incomplete!!!
Part of my everyday routine!

Great taste! Superb ingredients! And friends are even complimenting my skin. I guess you can say I'm glowing :)
The best start to the day!

Tasting like chocolate milk shake, yet filled with probiotics for gut health, super-charged superfoods, and lots of our daily greens. Whenever I fall off the "good eating wagon" a few days of Zenberry Green shakes in the morning get me and my gut tastily and happily back in the groove. Love my Zenberry.

I discovered Zenberry at the WSSC Miami conference in 2013. Due to complications from an abdominal surgery, I had my doubts if I would be able to get through so many cycling classes that weekend without being able to eat properly. I was really disheartened after traveling all the way from the west coast.
Fortunately for me, Emma had set up shop at the conference and I bought my first bag of Zenberry Blue. I am positive I would not have made it through the weekend without the pure and energizing nutrition I received from the great product.
I regularly buy Zenberry Green and Blue and find the flavor awesome. I keep things simple by just blending banana and frozen berries (sometimes fresh avocado) and ice. If I have fresh spinach I also toss a generous handful in and pat myself on the back a little.
I also enjoy the coffee flavor and use that to mix things up. I have never been a fan of Chai tea, but I do enjoy the Zenberry Chai on occasion. So if you like chi you will love the Zenberry Chai!
I see myself continuing to buy the Zenberry products for many many more years. Love this stuff!

I have used protein powders and have been making smoothies for years. Within days of switching to Zenberry, people were complimenting my skin. And Zenberry was the only thing I had changed. Now that I have gotten to know Emma, I have made additional changes to my eating and overall health. Zenberry is where it all started for me :)
High quality ingredients and tastes great!

I regularly purchase zenberry green and vanilla chai zenberry flavors and love them both! Typically I consume them blended into fruit / green smoothies with unsweetened almond milk or coconut water. I'm very impressed with Zenberry's commitment to quality ingredients, sustainable sourcing and producing products that taste good.
My go to zenberry smoothie is blended frozen banana, 1 tbs ground flaxseeds, 2 tbs zenberry vanilla chai and unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Simple and delicious.
