GreenBlender Review - UPDATED Apr 2018
It is a well-known fact that a healthy smoothie is one of the best ways to start a day. The reason why this nutritious breakfast still hasn’t knocked cereal off the throne is that making a smoothie as soon as you get up can simply be too much of a hassle. GreenBlender’s goal is to offer an easy, just-add-water solution to everyone who wants to enjoy all the benefits of fresh smoothies, minus the tedious preparation. To make your transition to smoothie breakfasts a bit smoother, GreenBlender even offers special cereals of its own. Discover how this service can help you develop healthier habits in this detailed GreenBlender review.
How GreenBlender Works
GreenBlender is a subscription-based service that delivers recipes and pre-portioned ingredients for superfood smoothies and cereals to homes and businesses around America. Each weekly delivery contains 5 recipes and just enough nutrient-packed ingredients to make 10 servings (12 oz. per serving) of delicious smoothies and superfood cereals designed to make your skin glow, boost your immunity, give you more energy, and improve your overall health.
Every week, there are 11 new recipes on the menu, including 8 smoothies and 3 superfood cereals, and you get to choose 5 that appeal to you the most. To better understand how GreenBlender food can help you become a healthier version of yourself, the service provides plenty of information about the benefits of each item on the menu.
While you do need to subscribe in order to enjoy the smoothies and cereals, you can pause or cancel your subscription fuss-free. All you need to do is inform GreenBlender about your decision 5 days before your next delivery is due.
What Makes GreenBlender Different
GreenBlender is trying to change the way America does breakfast one smoothie at a time. It provides organic and locally sourced produce and superfoods and perfectly nutritious and balanced recipes, allowing you to just pop everything into the blender and enjoy great benefits while investing minimum effort. The smoothies and cereals are as tasty as they are good for you, so you can bring pleasure to your palate while letting the nutrients do their magic.
If you want to expand your knowledge on superfoods and healthy living, you can read tons of insightful and informative articles on GreenBlender’s blog called The Blend. From natural ways to improve digestion to anti-inflammatory tricks to slow aging, GreenBlender offers plenty of tips on how to stay young, get fit, and feel better than ever.
For your friends who love eating healthily, GreenBlender offers lovely and affordable gifts. The gift cards start at $49 and the unique Essential Superfood Sampler costs just $39.99 and includes the top 6 superfoods – organic baobab, lucuma, maqui berry, moringa, reishi mushroom, and maca.
Meals And Recipes
Previously in this GreenBlender review, we mentioned that this service’s menu features 8 all-new smoothies and 3 cereal recipes every week. All smoothies are vegetarian-friendly and 100% gluten-free and at least 5 of them are dairy-free and vegan. Cereals are vegetarian-friendly, vegan-friendly, gluten-free, and can be dairy-free.
Each menu item comes with nutrition facts and labels that provide information about its nutritional value and health benefits. You can choose the ones that are rich in fiber or protein, as well as low in sugar or calories. You can also opt for those items that have a soothing effect, give your skin a healthy glow, boost your immunity, give you energy, and have anti-inflammatory properties.
In order to prepare the smoothies, you need nothing but a blender, water, and a couple of minutes. GreenBlender provides all the ingredients, which are immediately ready to go into the blender, along with recipes that you can save and reuse. As far as cereals go, you can enjoy them any way you prefer by adding liquid of your choice.
If you have some extra produce sitting in the fridge and want to turn it into something nice and healthy before it goes to waste, you can browse the recipe section and find inspiration in one of the 800+ original recipes GreenBlender has crafted so far.
Ordering from GreenBlender is perfectly simple. There is only one week-to-week plan known as Fresh Start and it costs $49.90 per week. You get weekly deliveries that include 5 recipes that yield 10 servings. That means that each serving costs just $4.99, which is a pretty good deal, considering that you get plenty of organic produce and superfoods that come at pretty high prices when you buy them at the store.
For more good news, there are no additional costs, as shipping is free of charge on all orders.
