NADI Wild Rosehip Beverage
Nina Tickaradze, a native of Tbilisi, the capital of the country of Georgia, now lives in Atlanta. In 2014, she and a friend in Tbilisi decided to begin making and bottling the traditional rosehip drink their mothers and grandmothers made for them as children. And to employ the country’s refugees to pick the rosehips needed. NADI is a USDA-certified organic drink made from the fruit of rose bushes growing in the forests of the Caucasus mountains. A bottle has only 9 calories and provides 135 percent of the recommended daily dose of vitamin C. It’s tart and fruity and probably just the thing for cold and flu season.
$2.49 per 10-ounce bottle. Available at Alon’s Bakery & Market, Australian Bakery Cafe, Buford Highway Farmers Market, Savi Provisions and Sevananda. drinknadi.com
VeganSmart Powdered Shake
Drinkable supplements are fast becoming a favorite way to get vitamins, protein, fiber and goodness knows what else. We tried VeganSmart, a nutritional shake that provides 6 grams of dietary fiber, 20 grams of protein plus lots of minerals and prebiotics in each 1.5-ounce serving. We tried the Chai flavor, blending it with 1 cup of apple juice and a fresh apple, then adding ice, for an apple-chai smoothie. Other popular flavors include vanilla, chocolate and peaches and cream.
$36.99 per 15-serving jar. Available at CVS and Walmart or online at vegansmart.com.
