I'm always up for a good smoothie. I generally make them at home and my typical smoothie consist of some Greek yogurt, some frozen fruits, and either orange juice or Almond milk. I admit I often put a little whip cream on top if I have some. So as you can see, it's not too in depth.
This past weekend my mom
and I had an opportunity to try a different way to make smoothies. She came over Friday night and we had a smoothies making night courtesy of Green Blender.
Green Blender is a subscription smoothie box. Since I received my box on St, Patrick's day, all my smoothies were St. Patrick themed. The ingredients came in an insulated box and there was enough to make 5 different recipes. Green Blender not only provided the recipes but also had each ingredient measured out and pre-packaged. All the fruits and veggies looked so good that I was tempted to dig right in and make a salad with it!
Each recipe included a green veggie, a fruit, and what they called a "super booster" packet, which was usually some ingredient I had never heard of.
These were the 5 recipes we made that night..............
Each recipe was suppose to make 2 servings but we got a little bit more than that out of it and had some left over to freeze for later. According to the Green blender website, they say it comes to about $3.90 per serving. They no doubt give you the freshest ingredients and come up with some really healthy combos. However, I found that the taste was just not to my liking. This is no fault of Green Blenders as I think their idea is fabulous, I just have a sweeter palate I guess. The ones I enjoyed the best were the Luck of the eye-rish and the Lepre-clean and I bet that was because there were no leafy greens in there. I should have went with my instinct and made a salad instead.
What "super boosters" do you put in your smoothies?
We are linking up with the gals from the Friday 5.
