These Ridiculously Tasty (and Blenderless!) Smoothies Make Getting My Daily Fruit and Veggie Intake a Breeze
If you live alone like me, you know that grocery shopping is a real struggle — particularly when it comes to produce that goes bad basically as soon as you put it in your fridge. Don’t get me wrong, I would eat fresh fruits and veggies alllll day long if I could, but the thought of wasting my money because I can’t eat it fast enough often makes me skip buying it at the store. Recently, though, I tried out Kencko, a smoothie subscription service that delivers flash-frozen smoothies straight to your door — and yes, they won’t go bad overnight (or even for months!).
Each delicious packet comes with 2.5 cups of fruits and veggies, so it’s never been easier to reach your daily servings (and on the go, no less!). In your first order, you can add on their handy shaker bottle, which allows you to whip up these nutritious and delicious smoothies wherever, whenever — no blender needed. Just add in your favorite plant-based milk or water to the fill line, add the packet, and you’ve got a refreshing drink in seconds. It just might rival your favorite $10+ smoothie shop drink, so this is a sure way to save money, too. Each smoothie comes out to under $3 a pop, which is a total bargain, IMO.
The smoothie packets are flash-frozen to lock in all the nutrients, fiber, and vitamins so you get all the benefits of real fruit without having to run out the store every week. Most importantly, this process helps cuts down food waste by preserving fruits and veggies until you’re ready to enjoy them. Shelf-stable produce? Count me in.
And yes, they actually taste good! They’re made with more than 50 kinds of real, organic fruits and vegetables so you never get bored of eating the rainbow. From Sunny Guavas to Tropical Blues (my two faves), there are more than enough mouthwatering flavors to rotate so there’s always something new to look forward to each day. Plus, if you live somewhere cold like me, it’s an easy little way to brighten up the winter blues!
If you’re looking for something to help you stay a little fuller or you’re looking for a pre- or post-gym drink, you can add on their pure plant protein for an added boost. Whether you’re looking for energy, focus, or skin benefits, there’s a smoothie to help with whatever you’re looking for.
As far as the subscription options go, you’ve got plenty to choose from to meet your needs. Choose from shipments of seven, 10, 20, 30, or 60 smoothies a month. If you change your mind, you can skip a monthly box, switch up your flavors, or cancel your plan at anytime. But, that’s not all! Kencko also offers other good-for-you snack and meals including sweet treats and bowls, so might as well add some of those to your cart while you’re at it. (I’ve got my eyes on the Chili Non Carne bowl.)
I’m constantly on the hunt for simple ways to incorporate healthier habits into my daily routine, and Kencko’s smoothie subscription has made it a breeze to get the nutrients my body needs to be on my A game. It’s truly a little bright spot in my day and feels like a little self-care moment to boot!
