I’m all for buying GMO-free to avoid pesticides and insecticides linked to genetically modified components, and I’ve been a fan of grass-fed, free-range, antiobiotic-free dairy ever since I found out about the link between conventional milk products and cancer. So when I learned about KURA smoothie powders—made in New Zealand where happy cows are de riguer and GMOs are illegal—I just had to share. Take a minute to learn about the gold standard for smoothies, and enter to win a $150 KURA Perfect Smoothie Prize Pack, including a Cuisinart Smoothie Blender.

I get up 45 minutes before everyone else, but I’m still chopping and toasting and mixing by the time the first shift settles down at the counter. Once my middle and high schoolers are out the door at 7:05, the second shift—my eight-year-old and husband—drop in. So the idea of an easy smoothie that packs in protein, probiotics, vitamins, fiber AND Omega-3s with one flip of the switch? Sign me up!
Until now, my husband has made a morning smoothie with fruit and non-dairy milk that packs in sugar—it’s basically a milkshake in disguise. We’ve tried other smoothie powders on the market, but the distinct chalky taste is off-putting. With KURA, you just add a scoop of powder to any liquid—water, juice or milk—and it tastes delicious. You can add fruit, and the naturally sweet taste of KURA powder masks any veggies you might want to slip in there, too.
In addition to the taste, the thing I like best about KURA is that they add no sugar to the mix—the only sweetener is naturally occurring lactose from milk. This smoothie powder is also free of GMOs, gluten and preservatives, as well as artificial sweeteners, flavors or colors. With that said, here’s what KURA does deliver:
14 grams of bioavailable protein
100% recommended daily allowance of vitamin D, C, B6, B12 and six other vitamins and minerals
26 other essential vitamins and minerals
5 grams of fiber
5.4 of Omega-3s (Four times the amount in a serving of salmon!)
4 billion active probiotics
KURA is seriously nutritious. Available on Amazon and at Sprouts and select Whole Foods—check the “where to buy” section for details—it’s great for breakfast, an on-the-go lunch, or a mid-afternoon pick-me-up. Watch how quick it is to #startyoursmoothie!
