I’ve been drinking Splendid Smoothies regularly for about 5 years now. Because of this, I’ve been around the block and have tried every smoothie they have to offer. Some of their smoothies are probably good for one palette and not at all for another. I would say there are several smoothies that most people would like though. If you have been thinking about ordering Splendid Spoon and don’t know what to order, I will list the best Splendid Spoon smoothies you should try.
The great thing about Splendid Spoon Smoothies, is they are healthy, filling, and come in a wide variety of flavors. When I first started with Splendid Spoon there were only a few flavor choices to choose from so it has been fun to watch the company itself grow and expand.
Benefits of Splendid Spoon Smoothies
The biggest benefit of the Splendid Spoon smoothies is they make for a pretty convenient (and healthy!) breakfast. After I finish my coffee I usually pop the top off of a smoothie and sip on it for the next hour or so. The smoothie usually tides me over while I go to yoga or the gym after working for a few hours. When I get home, I usually have one of Splendid Spoon’s Noodle Bowls for lunch.
It is pretty important for me to have a breakfast that keeps me full throughout most of the morning. Nothing is worse than working out while hungry. I am currently training for a 10K so I’ll take all the natural energy from foods I can get right now. The Splendid Spoon smoothies thankfully do just that. Their ingredients are:
- Gluten free
- Unprocessed whole foods
- Organic and Non-GMO
- No artificial sugars
These types of foods are made to make you feel good. So many smoothies I find at the store are full of so much crap (for lack of a better term). I like that each ingredient in these smoothies is listed right there on the front of the bottle and is easy to read. There are no crazy ingredients that your average person couldn’t read or pronounce.
The Biggest Benefit in My Opinion
Since it’s my blog I get the wonderful pleasure to write about what the biggest benefit is for me. I classify myself as someone who is a “Hard Working Lazy Gal”. This means, I work a lot and like to do non-lazy things, but there are many aspects of my life where I choose to be lazy. Not wanting to clean my blender is where I would definitely consider myself a certified lazy gal.
Having the Splendid Spoon smoothies already wrapped up and delivered in a bow on my front doorstep is worth every penny. The fact that they are better than any smoothie I could make, is the bigger plus.
Top 5 Best Splendid Spoon Smoothies
Now, for what you all came here for. What are the best Splendid Spoon Smoothies? My Top 5 are as follows:
1. Mango Guava
Um…Hello. People are SLEEPING on the Mango Guava smoothie. This is by far the best Splendid Spoon smoothie of them all. Maybe it’s just me because I love anything mango (I’m literally eating dried mango as I write this) but this is great. It tastes less like I am having a healthy breakfast and more like I’m having a sweet treat.
While the Mango Guava smoothie has a sweeter taste, it isn’t too in your face sweet that you don’t want to drink too much of it. I am in a Facebook group where we “Spoonies” discuss what people think about the different foods they offer and this one is always a fan favorite.
2. Power Greens
My next favorite smoothie out of the Splendid Spoon lineup is the Power Greens. The consistency is a little thinner and I feel like I can drink it faster than some of the other smoothies. I usually choose this smoothie if I have a morning meeting and don’t have the time to slowly sip on a smoothie all morning.
While it has spirulina and wheatgrass in it, I don’t get that gross “green smoothie taste” you may think you would. The flavor I mostly get from this smoothie is the lemon. So if you like lemon-flavored anything I would recommend giving this smoothie a shot.
3. Coconut Lime
If you haven’t figured it out yet, I love me some tropical flavors. A flavor combo I never really thought about was Coconut Lime. This didn’t sound great to me so I didn’t order it until I had tried just about everything else so I was pleasantly surprised when I did. Look at this flavor now, on my top 5 list.
The avocado gives this smoothie one of the better textures of their smoothies. It is really smooth and the flavor combos are perfection.
4. Mint Chip
At one point I would have said Mint Chip was the best Splendid Spoon smoothie. I am not someone who would go and order Mint Chip ice cream out of all the choices but I love it in a smoothie. It has a very similar flavor to mint chip ice cream. This is another one that is sweet, but not too sweet. I love it!
……and yes I am reading a dog training book in my featured Mint Chip smoothie photo. That’s what I get for never remembering to take pictures of smoothies in a more professional setting that I might use one day for a blog post.
5. Carrot Ginger Smoothie
Okay, hear me out. This smoothie sounds like it wouldn’t be the best tasting smoothie around but it’s pretty close. Maybe it’s because it contains mangos? I don’t know. I also know I am full for longer with this smoothie. The fact that it contains carrot juice might be a turn-off for some but I barely notice it.
If you’re a risk-taker at all I would recommend giving this flavor a try. Especially on days where you may have to have a later lunch and need to stay full for longer in the mornings. If you try this flavor, let me know what you think!
