I’ve always been into smoothies and juicing, but every once in a while I fall out of routine.  Then my Vitamix just SITS there. After all, it takes time to plan to purchase all the fresh produce you need for smoothies, and then it takes more effort to think of new or creative ways to blend up some concoctions that actually taste great. So naturally, when I heard about Green Blender, I was intrigued. It’s a food delivery that provides you with at least 5 different smoothie recipes and all the ingredients you need to make them. They source their ingredients responsibly with almost all produce being organic, and everything is non-Gmo. The best part though is their incorporation of superfood supplements for protein and nutrients so that I can try new things I have never heard of and would certainly never think to purchase on my own. In just two deliveries you get to try unique ingredients such as  camu camu (the most potent source of vitamin C), matcha green tea, yacon root, quinoa flakes, goji berries, maqui berries, chlorella, and ginseng. The recipes also teach you to incorporate a variety of nuts into your smoothies to boost your protein and nutrient intake. I just love that!

Superfood supplements

The recipes are really unique too and taste great. They provide a delicious range of flavors you wouldn’t think to pair. For example one of my favorite green smoothies I’ve tried is with squash, spinach, banana and tahini! It’s a sweet and creamy blend with a hint of cinnamon. My absolute favorite out of everything I have tried, is the persimmon mango. This is one tropical and delicious treat loaded with vitamin C, and who doesn’t need that boost at this dreadful time of year?

The box delivers in a thermal ice box and will stay fresh for at least a few hours until you get home to receive your fresh ingredients. Everything is already prepped and portioned, which is a great bonus!

So go ahead and give Green Blender a try, whether you don’t have the time or energy to buy and prepare what you need, simply need new inspirations like I did, or are just plain lazy, these smoothie deliveries are going to get you right on track! You do need your own blender, or you could rent/buy a VitaMix blender from GreenBlender.com. I use Vitamix and I highly recommend it; their patented push stick makes all the difference in achieving a smooth and silky texture when larger products are built up at the top of the blender. You can skip or cancel deliveries whenever you want. And now as one of my readers you can get 20% with this code: sugarandgarlic. Enjoy!
