How to make your own super green drink powder on a budget

Updated on July 3, 2012

Feel amazing! On the cheap!

Green drink powder, when mixed into water, is an ultimate, super health drink. It provides your body with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, animo acids and natural plant proteins. These are important for natural cell support and help balance your body's PH levels.

Famously endorsed by Anthony Robbins and Dr Robert O Young, these green powder drinks are a fantastic way to detox your body and give you amazing energy levels.

But it's also a very expensive way.

I drank these green drink powders for months, starting off with the Anthony Robbins' green drink powder, which cost me £50+ per month. I eventually found a much cheaper alternative for around £30 per month.

It's still expensive though.

One day i took a look at the ingredients on the back of the tub and thought "Hey, I can make this stuff myself" I logged straight into my EBay account and started searching for the stuff to make my own green drink powder. After hours of pricing up each ingredient, I found it would be well worth making my own.

I bought :

Dandelion powder 500g

Purpurea powder 100g

Alfalfa powder 200g

Bladderwrack powder 400g

MSM powder 250g

Barley Grass powder 500g

Pau D'arco powder 200g

Wheatgrass powder 500g

It's important you don't go over your daily limit of each ingredient so here's how i mixed it together.

Dandelion powder - 1 part

Purpurea powder - 1/4 part

Alfalfa powder - 2.5 parts

Bladderwrack powder - 1.5 parts

MsM powder - 1/4 part

Barley Grass powder - 1 part

Pau D'arco powder - 2 parts

Wheatgrass powder 1.5 parts

Green drink powder usually costs £30-£50+ for around 250g (about 1 months supply). I paid around £60 for these ingredients, (but you can buy smaller amounts). I bought a total of 2650g for this money. It's about 9 months supply for me. I take 3-4 heaped teaspoons of it per day in 1/2-1 pint of water. Usually after meals.

So it works out at around £6.60 per month. Compare it to £30-£50+ per month, that's a massive saving! And it works just as well as the expensive green drink powder. It does for me anyway.

It may take a little more effort, buying the different powders, and mixing them yourself, but it's only minutes.

If money is an issue for you, this is a great alternative. Even if money isn't an issue for you, it's a way of making great savings. Give it a try!

      I have never thought of buying the raw ingredients to make the juice myself.
