Smoothie Delivery Review: Is Craft Smoothie Right For You?

9th APRIL

Want to know whether a smoothie delivery from Craft Smoothie is a good fit for your lifestyle? Here's a review of the smoothie kit experience so you can decide if it’s right for you.

How it works:

As a Craft Smoothie subscriber, you get a smoothie box delivered to your door with all the ingredients to make five superfood smoothie recipes. The recipes change each week depending on what's in season and every recipe makes two servings, so you get 10 smoothies per box. The ingredients include unique combinations of fresh fruit and vegetables, and five bags of organic superfood blends. So you pick a recipe and combine the fresh ingredients with the matching superfood bag - all you need to do is rinse and chop the produce before adding to your blender, then add ice and your choice of liquid. All the healthy smoothie recipes have been developed to taste delicious with water, but you have the option to blend with milk, nut milk, coconut milk, coconut water, or whatever liquid you prefer.

 

"A huge thumbs up from myself and master 7 (my smoothie drinking pal). I was a bit unsure of a smoothie with ice and water and spinach but it's perfect for that afternoon slump!" - Trish

 

What you get:

No two Craft Smoothie boxes are ever the same because the fresh fruit and vegetable-based smoothie recipes are based on what's in season. So during spring and summer, you can expect ingredients like berries, avocado and stone fruit in your smoothie box, whereas autumn and winter bring fruits like nashi pears, feijoas and more of New Zealand's finest. You can see some examples of recent Craft Smoothie recipes to get a better idea of the seasonal combinations.

The organic superfood blends are combined to provide beneficial boosts of essential vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, while supporting the nutritional balance of the smoothie recipes. These include energising superfoods like maca and goji berries, antioxidant-boosters like acai and cacao, as well as plant-powered sources of protein like nuts and seeds. Check out these top superfoods for smoothies to learn more about the superfoods to expect in a smoothie box delivery from Craft Smoothie.

Craft Smoothie Box

What you need: 

All you need is a blender (a conventional or bullet-style blender will do the trick), a chopping board and a knife. 

Who it’s for:

Anyone who doesn’t have time to prepare a nutritious breakfast in the morning, or anyone lacking inspiration to kickstart a healthy eating plan. Singles, couples and families alike appreciate the convenience and element of surprise that Craft Smoothie brings to breakfast with new flavour combinations to look forward to each week.

Some parents have been splitting the smoothies with their children, getting them involved in following the recipe cards and identifying the correct ingredients from the smoothie kit. We’ve also heard from happy customers who have converted their other halves to introducing fruit and vegetables to their morning routine.

 

“We had the strawberry one this morning. Struggling not to drink another smoothie until tomorrow. Way too much fun and yum! Great activity to do with the kids, following the instructions and then getting to eat what you made.” - Mickey

What it tastes like:

The diversity of recipe flavours in each box gives you something new to look forward to each morning. From berry smoothies to tropical smoothies, green smoothies to cacao smoothies, the unique recipes bring together well-balanced combinations of seasonal produce and organic superfood blends. For example, Nashi’ll Be Right is a cool combo of nashi, mango, banana, kale, chia seeds and cinnamon. And Goji For The Great blends together goji berries, orange, banana, carrot, coconut and almonds.

 

"Injuries suck but it gives you a chance to do other things. so this week I mixed it up with Craft Smoothie and it's been wicked. Great smoothies with mixes you'd never think of." - Lima
