Ruby Reds by New Vitality Fruit and Vegetable Supplement
A Little Too Sweet
I am happy with the fruit and vegetable supplements in this and drink it about 3 or 4 times a week. I throw an orange or a grapefruit or whatever juicy fruit I have into the Vitamix with half a glass of ice, half a glass of water and one scoop of the supplement. It isn't gritty but it is a little too sweet. I like the flavor but wish they would decrease the amount of stevia they add to the blend. It's great for those mornings you need to get out of the house quickly, but still want something to fill your nutritional requirements.
Mix it in a smoothie
I agree with prior user review--it is not so good just in water--but it IS great mixed in smoothies--I make my smoothies with Almond Milk and frozen strawberries and low-fat vanilla yogurt (freeze yogurt in small "cubes" if you want a thicker texture). It gives the "plain old milk+strawberries+yogurt" a bit more of a kick and I'm hooked. This is the third order for me in addition to one order for my son's girlfriend who also enjoys it mixed in her smoothies.
Not for Me
Read the reviews before ordering, but with food items taste is clearly personal, so I ordered anyway. I agree that used the way suggested, it is way too strong. I experimented with lesser quantities in water and pineapple juice. Not using the suggested way would definitely affect the quality of the product's effectiveness. My other issue was with the sweetness. Way too sweet for me and adding to juice was even worse.
I mix it with water,ice,banana. It is delicious and is really helping my digestion!! I am ordering more!! Thanks!!
The taste and texture of this is simply terrible. My expectations weren't that high regarding taste, either! It may be good for me but there are too many items on the market that I don't have to force myself to use. Don't waste your money is my recommendation on this item.
Unless you mix this with something, the taste is awful. Once you mix it with something, it becomes pretty caloric. You'd be better off with your own smoothie.
Lots of Energy!
This product gives me lots of energy. I use it daily when making my protein shake. I would have given it 5 stars if the product was not a little gritty. Although the product has a gritty residue, it does not taste bad.
Excellent for good daily digestion!
We just went through two cans of Ruby Reds, and ordering more - we make a shake every day with yogurt, orange juice, banana, frozen strawberries, and sometimes peanut butter. If you do not regularly go go once a day to the restroom, you should try this. Excellent for daily digestion! Please make different flavors.
Not as good
I have been using this and have not seen any difference between this and what I was using previously,which was a liquid. I put it in my smoothie every morning. It is very gritty, but I thought, if it works, it's worth it. But sorry, won't be ordering again. Not sending it back. Will just use it all up and go back to my liquid.
Very happy with Ruby Reds
A friend turned us on to Ruby Reds and we are hooked. For us it is a healthy, convenient and portable way we add important vitamins to our protein smoothies. We find it to be absolutely ideal for our on-the-go breakfasts or any afternoon snack or even a dessert. We like to mix it in the blender with non-fat yogurt and different frozen or fresh fruits and a little ice/maybe a dash of almond milk. SO GOOD! So perfect to try in the summer time… we are hooked. Thanks!
Excellent...IF you put it in a smoothie!
Forget about mixing it with water or juice -- blecch. But I'm now pretty well addicted to having a smoothie with Ruby Reds for either breakfast or lunch. I start with Naked brand Green Machine drink, which I love. Then I add plain Greek yogurt, half a banana, usually some blueberries and/or strawberries, and sometimes other random ingredients like slivered almonds or pineapple juice. Toss in the scoop of Ruby Reds and a couple of ice cubes...turn on the Vitamix...and the result is healthful yumminess!
Love Love Love
Thank you for bringing this to QVC. Hubby and I start off every day with Ruby Reds. Would not want to be without it. Wish there was an 'Auto Ship" for this. Would not want to be without it. Please do not take it away. Would at least like to be able to order without having to receive a new Ruby Reds carrier every time. We've already got four of them...they're piling up.
