Navitas Naturals Review and Giveaway! -- CLOSED



Hey everyone! My next review is for Navitas Naturals. Navitas Naturals is a great company that sells a variety of superfoods from cacao nibs to flax powders. All of them you can add to smoothies or drinks or check out their website for some awesome recipes.


I received two great powders to check out:
Cacao Powder
Maca Powder

I've been looking for some cacao powder everywhere so I was pumped to try Navitas Naturals'. I am a chocoholic but I've been trying to cut back on real chocolate. So I figured I'd get the cacao powder and add it to smoothies and all that fun stuff. I love it. My roommate actually used it to make chocolate cake waffles and they were SO GOOD. It tasted just like chocolate but what's great about cacao powder is that it is raw cacao and so the nutritional value is still in tact with it. Cacao is full of antioxidants called flavonoids, which can also improve heart health which is awesome.

The Maca Powder my roommate has been raving about. He's one of those health nuts and eats raw and organic honey, all that stuff. So I figured I'd give it a whirl. It has a really interesting taste to it. The website describes it as "an earthy taste that is slightly nutty with a hint of butterscotch." It tastes really good in tea. I haven't mixed it in a smoothie yet but I'm sure it'll be great there too. Maca is a Peruvian root plant that is slightly sweet and has been shown to increase energy, endurance, and improve sexual function. It's a pretty strong tasting so one teaspoon goes a long way. I drank some in my tea the other day when I was really tired but I had to get work done and I noticed it really woke me up and energized me a bit.

Overall, I really liked both of these and I really like the website because it gives you a variety of recipes which you can check here. Definitely check them out if you love smoothies like I do or what to try superfoods. They are really great and you can easily incorporate them into your diet. Plus all the vitamins and nutritional values are really worth it.

They also have something really cool called The Smoothment. Which is a really great movement they created where you incorporate a healthy smoothie into your diets one day to take a step to lead a healthier life. They also have all of the awesome smoothie recipes on the website and in video format as 60 second smoothies. Pretty awesome!

Buy It! Head on over to Navitas Naturals' website and browse their selection. They have a ton of superfoods to choose from, not just powders either. Definitely something for everyone!

Win It! ONE winner will receive an 8oz bag of Cacao Powder and a 16oz Maca Powder like I did!
