Tips from our Shotsters


“I spend a lot of time in my garden and after learning about the nutrition value of some weeds I now eat them while I’m out gardening – Puha, Dandelion and Chickweed.”
Maria Whitley

“Veggie ‘cheese’ sauce and nice big smoothies. The Shots are awesome too!
Shannon Luca

“I blend up a heap of veggies when I make a pasta sauce. Great veggie disguise for my little people. Smoothies and juices an obvious go to as well.”
Charlie Bickley

“I Double Shot everyday, and while I love my plants, I grind veges to dust and put into mince (lasagne, nachos etc.) to help the others eat more plants in my house.”
Sarah Lincoln

“Nutrient Rescue Double Shot and avocado toast for brekkie. Fried mixed veggies or salad as a side dish in every meal. Chilled celery and carrot stick as snacks or sometimes smoothies.”
Joanne Goh

“I chop vegetables very finely and sneak them into pancake, cake, muffin and waffle batters where they go undetected!”
Penny Rowan


Other ways of taking your powder

One of our favourite ways to sneak in extra fruits and veggies whilst taking our Shots are in smoothies! We recently asked our Facebook community to share their go-to smoothie recipes with us. We've chosen two we think are utterly delicious.

The first, is a vanilla berry smoothie, shared by Frances Hau. This recipe is super creamy, and tastes quite like a berry milkshake – accept it’s healthy! The perfect sweet afternoon treat for the kids, you can try the recipe here.

The second recipe is packed full of green goodness and was shared by Michelle Gilbert. Full of ginger, manuka honey and a hearty scoop of Double Shot this is a must try for those wanting to focus on good gut health. Find the recipe here.

We hope these tips and tricks from your fellow Shotsters have given you some creative ideas on how to not only boost your immunity but also sneak in some more fruits and veggies (which coupled with your daily shot, can be a game-changer). If you haven't experienced the transformational effects of our shots yet, head to the shop and dive right in!
