Making a delicious and healthy smoothie
Clean-living, top-notch produce and artisanal foods are all the rage these days, and front-and-center in this celebration you’ll find the humble smoothie. Only a few years ago, your typical smoothie didn’t get much more creative than strawberry-banana.

These days, all types of “plant-based” and high protein smoothies feature a laundry list of fruits you may have never heard of, and superfoods you’re not sure you can pronounce. 

In this post we’ll shed some light on the world of smoothies, and let you know about some of the companies that will bring the blended goodness right to your doorstep. 

What Are Plant-Based Smoothies?

Plant-based smoothies combine fruits, berries, nuts and so on, with a base of veggies and leafy greens. Think spinach, kale, or dark lettuce. With a plant-based smoothie, you can easily consume your daily share of healthy greens, and because it’s mixed in with all that sweet smoothie goodness, you won’t even be able to tell the difference.  

What Are Superfoods?

The name may imply a hamburger that can fly faster than a speeding bullet, or a tater tot that can breathe underwater, but that’s not quite what superfoods are. “Superfoods” is a marketing term used to describe foods that are believed to have strong health benefits. A number of foods have earned this moniker, including chia seeds, goji berries, wheatgrass, and even the humble blueberry. While the science behind the superfood claims are disputed, there’s no doubt that a smoothie is an easy way to get a whole lot of servings of these items.

Can Smoothies Help You Diet?

Many people tout smoothies as a way to “cleanse” or “detox” the body, and as a diet food that can help you lose weight. The jury is still out on this, and fruit smoothies in particular include a high level of sugar that can make it harder to lose weight. Some smoothies—in particular plant-based, high protein, low sugar ones—can help if you consume them in lieu of a meal, but by and large even with smoothies, the key to weight loss is the same—eat healthier, and exercise more when you can. 

While smoothies aren’t an easy, quick way to lose weight and instantly extend your life, they can be a fresh, delicious way to start your day, replenish your energy after the gym, or just kick back next to the pool. Here’s a look at some companies that specialize in sending everything you need for delicious smoothies directly to your front door. 

1. Daily Harvest 

“Good food that works for you” is the tagline for Daily Harvest, a company devoted to providing healthy, delicious smoothies using ingredients from trusted sources. 

When you select your smoothie plan, you get to pick from a number of fanciful offerings, ranging from pretty standard fare like strawberry and peach, to carrot and chia, cold brew coffee and almond, and oats and cocoa. The smoothies also include “superfoods” like organic maca, hemp protein, and organic kale. When you click on a smoothie, you get to see a list of benefits, including “immunity-boosting” and “beautifying” to name a couple, as well as the ingredients and customer reviews. 

All of its ingredients arrive frozen to preserve their flavor and shelf life, and you just pop them in the blender and give it a whirl.
