It’s a powerhouse of nutrients in a jar.

If you struggle to eat enough leafy greens daily, then a supplemental super greens powder could be the nutritional boost you need. The process is very easy, and you are left with a product that is shelf stable for months. You’ll free up your fridge and get the benefits of out-of-season greens, all year round. Best of all, you’ll feel great about up-cycling your surplus garden greens and vegetable off-cuts. 

All you need is the Breeze Food Dehydrator and a high-speed blender. At the end, the greens will come out with the same nutritional value, just minus the moisture. It’s basically a concentrated form of vitamins, minerals and fibre.

The green things you can dehydrate are endless. We don’t follow a strict blend formula however; you can experiment with ratios. Some vegetables are stronger than others. Our green powder has a combination of spinach, kale, broccoli and celery. As a guide here are some greens to consider:

Beet greens, celery ends and leaves, bok choy, Chinese cabbage, cauliflower leaves, carrot tops, kale stems and leaves, broccoli leaves and stems, spinach, edible weeds. You can also include herbs such as parsley, coriander or mint, the pulp from green juices or green apple peel. Basically - if it’s green and it’s edible you can use it.

What might look like a huge bunch of greens will in fact dehydrate and blend to a small quantity of powder. This batch of green smoothie powder required two full 6 tray sessions in the Breeze food dehydrator. Store your dehydrated leaves in an airtight container until you have enough to blend.   

One cup of packed fresh greens equals approximately one tablespoon of powdered greens.

A teaspoon or two won’t really affect the flavour of your smoothie but it’ll turn it green and that’s exactly what you want.
