Athletic Greens is a very popular green drink that incorporates a comprehensive, A to Z list of quality ingredients.
Athletic Greens green superfood drink powder not only gets to brag up its broad array of ingredients that are absent in many green drinks, but in addition to the organic superfoods, it contains digestive enzymes and probiotics making it extremely well-rounded.

I have noticed, compared to other greens drinks that I would categorize with Athletic Greens (based on ingredient compounds and such,) that this high-energy brand is extremely popular in the marketplace.
It is priced a little more than other green drinks in its category, but recently they’ve made it more affordable by having a 50% off introductory offer and a long-term discount if you join their loyalty program.
Athletic Greens contains an impressive panel of antioxidant and herbal ingredients, and honestly, the list of ingredients is nothing but quality for upping energy, reinforcing immunities and cleansing impurities.
The potency for just the superfoods section is 8.5 grams per serving, and the superfoods list in this product is amazing. With everything, including the probiotics, antioxidants and enzymes, you are getting 12 grams per serving which is higher total nutrition than most.
Superfoods and Nutrition
Athletic Greens combines fruits, vegetables, grasses and algae to create a well-rounded and overly adequate profile. In just this section, there are about 27 different superfoods that include broccoli, wheatgrass, alfalfa, carrot, spirulina and spinach. Not bad for starters, right?
What I really love about Athletic Greens though is their inclusion of more unique ingredients like bilberry, beet and papaya. All these panels add up to create a great immune-building and digestive punch.
And don’t forget the robust probiotics, antioxidants, herbs and enzymes that make Athletic Greens a very complete green drink powder.
My very favorite thing about this green drink superfood however, is the taste. With all the quality greens, leafy vegetables, grasses and algae, Athletic Greens has done an amazing job masking the ‘healthy’ taste with a little bit of chocolate love. You can’t beat it. Delish!
I’ve also been impressed with the nutrition panel in general. With 233 mg of digestive enzymes per serving, and a brag-worthy serving of probiotic formulas, Athletic Greens provides the energy, nutrients, and the help your body needs to utilize those calories.
We’ve been a little miffed at the price for Athletic Greens. The grams-per-serving cost is higher than others reviewed on this site. But now they’ve dropped the price to $97.00 if you join their loyalty program. If you buy a 60-day supply and join their loyalty/auto-ship program the cost is $177 (or $88.50 for a 30-day supply). However, if you just want to order one at a time its $127. That’s over $4 a serving. Wowzer! For a lower entry price point alternative try Patriot Power Greens.
Taste and Value
“They done did good!” in terms of taste. Like I said before, the fact that they are able to mask the grassy/pond taste with just a hint of chocolate is wonderful. In my opinion, it is among the best green drink I’ve tasted if not the best.
When we break down the value of Athletic Greens, here is how we sit:
The introductory order of Athletic Greens costs $97 With 30 servings per container, and 12 grams per serving, we are looking at about $3.20 per serving. Not too bad for 12 grams of nutrition per serving. But the $127 price if you just want to buy one and not get on the auto-ship is $4.23 per serving. That’s high!
You can probably find some cheaper green drinks out there but Athletic Greens does use more costly organic superfoods for ingredients.
We like Athletic Greens. Great product, great organic superfoods, phenomenal taste. Not the cheapest green drink but definitely one of the most popular. The ingredients really are upper class.
Taste is important because if you have to psych yourself up to drink it everyday, chances are you want be consistent. I know that Athletic Greens is a great product with a well-rounded and more than comprehensive panel…so have at it, if you don’t mind paying for it!
Hopefully this Athletic Greens review steered you in the right direction.
