Zenberry Vanilla Chai is a raw vegan superfood protein powder based on the popular 5,000 year old tea recipe from India. Then we supercharged it! We combined the finest organic spices with powerful superfoods, protein, enzymes and probiotics to create an amazing authentic chai with all of the super nutrition you expect from Zenberry. We didn’t use a cheap premixed chai flavoring like so many on the market today. We started the recipe from scratch and worked until we had the perfect blend of spices for a balanced but potent chai with a flavor that will knock your socks off! We always put quality above all else and this is no different with our spices. Only certified organic spices from the best sources around the world make the cut for our Vanilla Chai, including real organic vanilla bean. The highest antioxidant foods on Earth are spices with cloves, cinnamon and vanilla near the top of the list. We used the same powerful mix of vegetables, grasses, sea vegetables, enzymes and probiotics found in our Zenberry Green formula but we used our pea and hemp protein blend instead of brown rice protein. Like our other products, Vanilla Chia is perfect for pre or post workout, meal replacement, digestive health and immune support. It’s great before bed because the spices are calming and may help you sleep.

We use a synergy of raw pea and hemp protein. This fusion creates a unique, raw, plant-based protein with a complete amino acid profile which is high in branch chain amino acids (BCAAs). It is an easily digestible and nutrient-dense superfood base.
Pea Protein: A high fiber, low calorie, nutrient dense vegetarian SUPERFOOD, Peas are also a remarkable source of plant-based proteins and amino acids. Protein from peas satisfies all FAO essential amino acid requirements. The amino acids found in peas include Lysine, Arginine, Glutamine, Leucine, Isoleucine & Valine (Branched Chain Amino Acids – BCAAs)
Hemp Protein: Hemp seed is a complete protein source and the only food capable of sustaining life in the absence of other foods. It has a high concentration of omegs 3 and omega 6 fatty acids in the favorable 1:3 ratio. Hemp protein is absorbed faster than any other protein.
We use only the finest, most potent, organic spices to make our Vanilla Chia. The highest antioxidant levels on earth, spices are a true super-food. Cloves rank #2 in the world with an ORAC rating of 290,000-314,000 (blueberries=4669). Our chai spice blend includes:

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!

(Wild-crafted): Also known as “seaweed”, these vegetables are packed with essential vitamins and mineral like Vit. C, iron, calcium and especially iodine which is essential for a healthy thyroid. 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.

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.
Not your grandmother's protein powder!

Distinctive unique flavor: the spiciness of a great cup of chai tea. I love blending avocado, cacao nibs, and fresh turmeric into this smoothie; also great with fresh cherries...mellow and spicy together. And oh by the way it's good for you!
