I’ve been loving my shipments of GreenBlender, but I was especially happy to receive them this week. You see, my family is headed out of town – our very first cruise – in 2 days, and mama ain’t got time to cook! That and I’m sure we’re going to be
enjoying indulging a slight bit on the vacay. Because sometimes that happens:). So getting in a solid dose of fruits and veggies prior to leaving was a welcomed opportunity for me!
All about GreenBlender
GreenBlender is a weekly smoothie delivery service that provides original (and unique!) smoothie recipes, and all the pre-portioned, fresh ingredients and superfoods to make smoothies at home. Almost all of the ingredients are organic, and they are local to the New York area where the owner of GreenBlender lives.
Last summer, I did weekly orders through GreenBlender. With a membership, you get 5 smoothies each week, each which makes 2 servings – so it’s really 10 smoothies in all. Since my kids were out of school, we had them for lunch a couple of days out of the week, which was AH-mazing since I didn’t have to figure out lunch ideas. Plus, I was stoked that they were getting a super nutritious smoothie that we paired with something else on the side.
My latest GreenBlender Review
This shipment had 5 smoothies as always, each with two servings. Pictured above is the Golden Milk Recharge. You’ve likely heard of golden milk, said to be great for fighting inflammation. Well this is a smoothie version, including organic carrots, banana, ginger, turmeric, cinnamon and coconut milk. I honestly almost thought of this as a soup, but a sweetened version. It was sooo yummy and filling! And since I love getting vegetables in my smoothies, this was definitely a fave.
My kids loved the Pina Banana – collard greens, banana, pineapple, shredded coconut, lucuma and water/ice. And I loved that it had collards in it since this is a green that I don’t typically buy or cook. My other fave was the Cucumber Matcha Cooler that had mini cucumbers, an apple, grapes, chia seeds and powder. I had this as a pre-workout drink since it gave me a nice energy boost without the coffee jitters.
You can choose weekly, bi-weekly or even monthly deliveries of GreenBlender. It takes the guesswork out of what to blend, and also gives you the ability to not only try new recipes, but it makes it easy to incorporate new blends that I honestly would never think of. Prior to GreenBlender, I had never put zucchini, tomatillos or rhubarb in a smoothie. Love trying new things!
