Nuwi Quinoa Drinkable Snack Review



Nuwi Quinoa Drinkable SnackWe all know that quinoa is good for us.  Long considered a superfood, it is incredibly nutritious, high in fiber, magnesium and protein and it’s gluten free! Quinoa is also incredibly easy to incorporate into your diet.  I have long been using it in place of such things like rice, for stuffing and even in place of oatmeal for breakfast. The one thing I haven’t done was drink it.  Until now.  Just the other day, I had my very first quinoa drinkable snack.

Nuwi was developed in an effort to provide a delicious and balanced snack for those that are on the go and need a nutritional boost.  It is a quinoa drinkable snack that is all natural, vegan, gluten free, non-GMO and USDA certified organic.  These snacks are made by blending certified organic quinoa with real fruits, veggies, agave nectar and Himalayan pink salt.   They come in seven flavors:

  • Apple 
  • Banana
  • Strawberry
  • Blueberry 
  • Carrots and Ginger
  • Split Pea 
  • Tomato

I was sent the Carrots and Ginger flavor to try which I was really excited about because those flavors just scream Fall to me! As I mentioned earlier, Nuwi snacks are vegan, gluten free, lactose free and soy free.  The Carrots and Ginger flavor contains: purified water, organic quinoa flour, organic carrot puree, organic agave, Himalayan pink sea salt, organic ginger puree and natural flavorsNuwi Quinoa Drinkable SnackNuwi Quinoa Drinkable Snack

While the label instructed that I could either drink it chilled or serve it warm, I chose to enjoy it cold! 
Nuwi Quinoa Drinkable SnackSince this is one of their vegetable blends, I wasn’t expecting anything sweet but honestly I really wasn’t sure what this quinoa infused drink would taste like.  While I wasn’t disappointed, the best way I can describe both the flavor and the texture would be something similar to V8.  It was most definitely vegetable tasting in nature but the spice of the ginger really made it enjoyable!

In terms of satisfying my hunger, it actually kept me full!  I choose to replace my normal breakfast smoothie for this drinkable snack and it did just as great of a job keeping me full, (aka no post snack slump) with comparable amount of calories and probably a bit more veggies 😉

Since I was only sent one to try, I would be interested to see what it would taste like served warm with maybe some toasted nuts or seeds.  I would also be interested to see what their fruit flavors taste like, especially the blueberry!

 

You can check out all the flavors and learn more about Nuwi on their site.  You can also follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram
