To make a smoothie, simply remove the top and fill the container with the liquid of your choice (I used water), pour the contents into a blender, whizz until smooth, then pour the contents back into your cup and enjoy. If you want to use the lid, there’s a hole in the top for a straw (paper, glass or stainless steel recommended, obvs).
Here’s a quick demonstration with Goodfood’s delicious Mango Goji blend. Note: I filled my blender with water after pouring in the contents because I thought that might prevent spillage, but you could put the water directly into the cup if that’s how you roll.
In the Mango Goji smoothie: mango, goji berries, pineapple, papaya, cashew butter, organic camu camu powder, lemon juice and Himalayan pink salt.
All delicious goodness, really.
The blender was a Mother’s Day gift a few years ago. It’s kind of brilliant.
Now I could have enjoyed the smoothie in my blender cup, sure, but I poured it back into the paper cup for the full experience.
The straw goes in nice and snug.
And there you have it! A delicious, healthy start to the day (or afternoon boost or post-workout treat). The smoothies range from 160 to 311 calories. (Mango Goji has 210 calories, 8 grams of fat, 20 grams of carbohydrates, and 4 grams of protein.)
The four other flavours I’ve tried are:
Boreal Berry — A berry explosion inspired by our homeland. Reminds us of a berry muffin.
- Blueberries, Raspberries, Strawberries, Banana, Kale, Sunflower Seeds, Maple Nuggets, Organic Chaga Powder.
Macadamia Sunrise — A sunny rush of rich coconut, nutty macadamias, and a hint of cherry. Reminds us of a coconut-cherry cream soda.
- Red Cherry, Avocado, Banana, Macadamia, Flax Seed, Coconut Butter, Green Apple, Himalayan Pink Salt.
Acai Bellini — Bright and fruity, toned down by antioxidant-rich organic acai. Reminds us of a peach daiquiri.
- Strawberry, Peach, Banana, Acai, Hemp Seeds, Gluten-Free Oats | Himalayan Pink Salt.
Piña Colada — This summer-inspired beverage is light and refreshing, with a slight touch of greens to balance the palate. Reminds us of a “skinny” piña colada.
- Pineapple, Lime, Coconut Butter, Spinach, Wheatgrass.
I’ll be trying the rest of the flavours in the coming months, so watch for more posts.
While the Goodfood smoothies are pitched as a breakfast option, I’ve been having them for lunch and an afternoon snack after a nutritionist I like recommended starting the day with a protein-rich meal and saving carbs for later in the day.
Each of the five flavours I’ve tried have been super tasty, with interesting combinations of fruits and superfoods that I wouldn’t think to put together. And they’re filling, which is what you want in a $6 smoothie. That said, you would easily pay more for the same amount at a juice bar, and here you get them delivered to your home at no extra charge. I’ve loved having a selection in the freezer to grab when I want something delicious and healthy.
