product review: nature's happiness

Hey, folks! Today I give you some insider info about an awesome company called Nature's Happiness. (The name is a good start.) They call themselves an organic super food store and I think that is a great description. They were kind enough to send me some products to review. I was given way more than I was expecting, and truly love everything I tried. All the products are raw, vegan and organic. They sent me spirulina powder, maca root powder, HURRAW! lip balm, cacao nibs. yerba mate tea, and coconut flakes - sweet! 

Well actually, the spirulina powder is super bitter but I got used to it pretty fast. Reminds me of wheat grass. It's a total superstar in the nutritional kingdom because it has crazy amounts of chlorophyll and protein. That's a good thing. I like to add it to smoothies and juice - it is such a fine powder I don't even notice it - for an extra hit of green goodness. 

The maca powder had a unique flavour I'd never experienced before, which I quickly developed a liking for. Some people think it tastes weird but I like it, as long as it's paired with something sweet. It's fun to add to things with chocolate. I have used it in truffles and as a topping on a vanilla chocolate cake. 

Speaking of chocolate - the cacao nibs are fabulous as well. I like the more intense, unprocessed flavour it gives to recipes (compared to cocoa) and the energy boost it I feel after consuming it. Hurraw for raw chocolate! And cake... and truffles... 

The coconut flakes are probably my favourite because they just taste so RAW. Normally I just get unsweetened, organic, dried coconut chunks but the ones from Nature's Happiness practically melt in your mouth. They are so unrefined and delicate. I sprinkle them on almost everything, including the chocolate caramel cups at the top of this post. And a kiwi tart I made two days ago. 

The yerba mate tea is really delicious and makes me feel good all around. That's all I have to say about that. 

Lastly, the HURRAW! lip balm is awesome. I had one before but now I have three! They sent me two different kinds: coconut, green tea. I love them all but the plain coconut one is probably my favourite. The ingredients are ones that I use myself like jojoba oil, coconut oil, and essential oils. They taste great and make my lips soft. Plus - it's the only raw lip balm I know of. And of course, totally vegan.

    Raw maca powder isn't the real deal when it comes to nourishing your adrenals and lowering cortisol... It has to be gelatinized first :).
