SocialNature - Enerex Greens

The latest free sample I received from SocialNature is Enerex Greens (Mixed Berries version). Enerex has many products with many different objectives; for their Greens, it is labelled as "For Increased Energy, Stamina & Vitality".

There are two types of their "Greens" formula, and the one with Mixed Berries has some sweetness (using superfoods and Monk Fruit / Luo Han Guo), probably to help make it more palatable since most people are not good with foods that are not either clearly sweet or savoury.
Enerex has a video (embedded below) that summarizes what this product is, and how it differs from the competition.

The product is considered gluten free at less than 20 parts per million gluten (see fine print on the bottom back of the package).

Lots of (wasted) residue in the packet. The look and aroma is very much like Udo's Choice Beyond Greens, except there's a fruitiness to the smell and taste.

The recommended 250 mL of water works out to basically 1 cup. Watch for lumps and make sure you break them up and stir well. Also, it is a suspension -- that is, when left alone for a long time, the mixture starts to settle, leaving you with a thin-tasting drink and a sludge at the bottom. So stir!

I used just plain water and put it in the fridge to have it cold. Stirred it when it came out. The flavour is not grassy, but instead mildly fruity-sweet. Not really sweet enough to even be a weak fruit juice, if that is what you were hoping for. Since it says to add the mix to a "liquid", presumably you could add it to a fruit juice base if you like something sweeter -- or possibly even a vanilla or fruity yogurt.
