HONEST OPINION: I Tried Organifi Green Smoothies + This Is What I Thought (Should You Waste Your Money?)
Hey everyone, welcome to another post on my blog!
So, you know how green drinks and juicing is like the thing right now, well it’s been the thing to do for a while actually haha, I am guilty saying I have dove head first into the world of green juices and that gross goodness trying out the famous Organifi powder!
With that being said, welcome to another HONEST OPINION segment with (me) Blake! 🙂
So yes, we are going to be talking about the internet’s favorite green drink/ powder Organifi – if it’s worth it, if it does anything, how it tastes, mixes, and if it’s worth your money or not!
Let’s start by answering the obvious question, what the heck even is Organifi Green Juice? According to the Organifi website:
Organifi Green Juice is a gently dried 11-superfood green powder dietary supplement that is certified USDA organic, gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, and Vegan.
With ingredients like spirulina, moringa, chlorella, ashwagandha, mint, lemon (and more which I’ll get into later), this product has been designed to help people feel energized and detoxify their cells.
Now I love green juice. Not only is it a wonderful first step to helping people re-train their taste buds and start replacing the sugary processed foods in their diet with real, revitalizing nutrients, but also makes you feel awesome after conquering a glass (or shaker) worth knowing you’re doing your body a huge favor.
About the Founder of Organifi, Drew Canole
I think the best way to learn about a product is learning about its routes, and its founder(s) so of course I did some research about Organifi, Drew Canole.
I learned it didn’t come easy but after experiencing his own radical transformation, Drew Canole decided to dedicate his life to helping others lose weight and reach optimal health, through the power of juicing vegetables and Superfoods.
For Drew, it all began while slumped over his computer with, overworked. He was brought a green concoction that would forever change his path in life. Despite his hesitation to drink the funny looking juice, his friend and he agreed to chug it down. Surprisingly, he loved it and experienced immediate energy on a cellular level from just one glass of fruits and veggies.
The rest is history, it transformed him. He was forever on a path of health and reignited his passion for helping others create the life of their dream. His blog fitlife.tv, much like this blog, blakestake.com, is passionate about uniting the world through health and happiness, and having some fun along the way!
The Benefits of Organifi Green Juice
Organifi Green Juice is a very easy way to get your daily nutrients. It literally took me 30 seconds to scoop some powder, add 8-16 oz. of water, shake, and drink it. So it’s obviously a time-saver, but what the benefits of taking it and what its doing for your body? Here’s what I learned:
- Mental clarity and all-day energy
Organifi doesn’t spike your energy like sugars do. This is something that I noticed while taking green juice in general. Because of all the super jam-packed nutrients in the power Organifi really allows your body to continually feel a steady amount of energy throughout the entire day (this is what I personally felt taking the product). I also noticed I felt very aware, awake and mentally clear – something I absolutely LOVED personally 🙂
- Supports your health and gives your body healthy nutrients
In learned that Organifi has a ton (seriously) of healthy super nutrients in it since it’s made from pure sources containing super nutrients like electrolytes found in coconut water.
- Reduces stress and reduces frustrations
This was HUGE for me, as I’m sure like many I find myself feeling stressed very frequently with my daily life. After taking the Organifi green drink I noticed I didn’t have nearly as many moments where I really felt the stress piling. So I researched into this and found it helps with balancing hormones already within the normal range. Yes please haha!
- Supports immune function
Since Organifi is made from super pure sources aka natures superfoods that contain vitamins and minerals, one thing I was really happy about was learning that it supports your immune system a TON like many other green drinks. But this was big for me as I HATE getting sick, and if this was to help me stay healthy and away from being sick then I was all about it!
- Detoxifies your body
This was an obvious one but I still wanted to mention it for those who aren’t aware of the many (many) benefits of drinking green juice, or juicing in general. Because of all the pure, and super food courses Organifi uses specifically, your body is constantly being detoxified aka cleaned out helping with a number of different functions and giving you many benefits, aka yes please (again)!
- Healthy skin.
Some studies have shown that some ingredients in Organifi may help promote healthy hair, skin, and nails. I definitely feel like my skin has a better complexion since using the drink, but keep in mind this would differ for each person!
- Mental clarity and all-day energy
How and when to drink Organifi Green Juice
Organifi‘s green juice is intended to be taken in the morning on a daily basis for you to really benefit from the superfood ingredients. I personally mixed one scoop (provided in the container) of powder with around 12 oz. of cold water because I enjoy the natural flavor of the infused coconut, ashwagandha, and mint superfoods. I also tried mixing the powder with almond milk to make a smoothie a couple of times just to mix things up. In my opinion, using water keeps the process simple and fast especially in the mornings, which is what I like.
The green juice container states that you should be able to get 30 servings from each container but I managed to get 35, as you can see in the image above.
What does Organifi green juice taste like?
As you can see from the image above, Organifi Green Juice powder is super fine so it mixes very well with water or liquids like almond milk. I really enjoy the taste of the green juice and green juice in general, but since they have an unusual combination of mint and coconut it really stood out and eventually I got addicted to it!
What are the Ingredients of Organifi Green Juice?
All of the ingredients in Organifi’s green juice ingredients are USDA organic, vegan, GMO-free, gluten-free, and soy-free. The ingredients all have their own benefits, (sourced from Highya.com) including:

Conclusion – Is it worth the money?
Overall I really enjoyed my trial period with Organifi green juice and I have decided to incorprate it into my daily routine as I loved the taste, effects and all of the benefits I gotten and continually receive from consuming it.
Already, I have convinced a few of my friends to give it a try despite the color and look of it (being a green juice remember!), and they too are hooked (sorry girls)!
If you are serious about your health and looking for something to really give you a number of benefits while detoxing that doesn’t taste bad at all, I would highly suggest Organifi green juice and it is definitely worth the money!
