My love for HUM Nutrition supplements is nothing new, I raved about their products before, and even included them in a Holiday gift guide, which is why I was thrilled about the opportunity to sample their newest product! A few weeks ago I received a small box with four pre-portioned servings of HUM Nutrition Raw Beauty powder [$39 for 8.5 oz, available here], so I thought I’d share my experience so far.
“A powder to support radiant skin and a healthy metabolism with raw organic greens, fiber, enzymes, and probiotics – all in a delicious mint chocolate chip infusion.”
HUM Nutrition Raw Beauty is a green superfood in powder form. It helps boost energy and return radiance to the skin with 39 known superfoods, such as kale, spirulina, moringa seed, matcha, and many more! The powder comes in a signature mint chocolate chip flavor and tastes great whether it’s mixed with water, cow milk, nut milk or added to your morning smoothie. It’s vegan, gluten-free and doesn’t contain any artificial flavors. Sounds amazing, right?

As a big fan of mint chocolate chip anything [including the famous Girl Scout Cookies], I was stoked to mix Raw Beauty with my smoothies. I had only four packets to try, so I used them four different ways, and here’s the recipe I liked the most. Psst! Even though your smoothie will be packed with fruits, it will still taste like a proper mint chocolate chip shake. The flavor isn’t the chemical type that you often find among fitness supplements, instead HUM Nutrition Raw Beauty tastes like a fresh proper cookie or a chocolate dessert.
- 1 scoop HUM Nutrition Raw Beauty powder
- 1 medium banana
- 1 cup almond milk (or any other nut milk)
- ½ ripe peach or several 4-5 frozen slices
- ½ cup frozen cherries (about 7)
- Combine all ingredients in a blender and pulse for a minute until smooth.
It’s hard to tell whether HUM Nutrition Raw Beauty is effective or not because I only tried it for 4 days, but I could definitely feel the energy boost, which in turn increased my productivity. I think if anything, this supplement makes a delicious addition to my morning smoothies, and now I can’t wait to give it a longer test run.
