We enjoy introducing new gluten-free products to the celiac and gluten-sensitive community, particularly when they contain all natural, organic, non-GMO ingredients. Meet NUWI Quinoa Smoothie! NUWI (acronym for Nutritional Wisdom) was founded by two friends who left behind the corporate world, to realize their dream of creating healthy, organic products. “Fearlessly determined to make pure, organic food products in a responsible and sustainable way, we decided to create a nutritious gluten free, vegan healthy snack for people like ourselves who continually seek balance in mind, body and spirit .. from NUWI website”
By now most everyone in our community has heard of Quinoa (keen-whah), known as “The Ancient Grain” (actually it is a seed from a plant), and touted for being super rich in protein. Now you can conveniently drink it to receive all the healthy benefits!

The NUWI Quinoa Smoothie contains organic Quinoa flour and is free of gluten, dairy, soy, cholesterol, preservatives, with no sugar added, and is chock full of vitamins and minerals including: fiber, iron, calcium, manganese and magnesium, E and B vitamins, and offers complete vegan protein. NUWI is also high in essential/non-essential amino acids Lysine, Cysteine, and Methionine, making it an exceptionally healthy beverage snack.
The founders spent a considerable amount of time developing the recipe and I’d say they got it just right! Available in a 10 oz glass bottle NUWI tastes best when chilled. Shake well before drinking as the consistency is thick, but once shaken is delightfully smooth … hence the “smoothie”! NUWI has a mild blueberry flavor and is sweetened with low glycemic, organic agave syrup. NUWI contains 160 calories and a low-cholesterol source of complex carbohydrates.
NUWI Quinoa Smoothie is a delicious option for the gluten-intolerant, lactose-intolerant, vegan & vegetarian, or anyone desiring a healthy, satisfying beverage snack whether it be at breakfast, lunch, post work-out or anytime.
Although the NUWI product is made in a shared facility, I was informed the company implements the best practices possible to avoid cross-contamination and each batch is tested to measure ppm (parts per million). NUWI tests at 5 ppm, well below 20 ppm, which is presently considered a safe level for those with celiac.
Courtesy of the kind folks at NUWI one lucky CeliacCorner will win a NUWI Quinoa Smoothie 6-pack, and gorgeous teal colored T-shirt (see above) with “Ancient Grains NUWI” logo (winner may chose from sizes: Women – small & medium; Men – medium & large). Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to sample these delicious gluten-free, dairy-free beverage snacks.
