The Honestly Good Smoothie Company Review by Mel & Joel – March 2019

We would like to thank Vikesh, who owns The Honestly Good Smoothie Company for sending us this box to review. My Son Joel really loves Smoothies and is often asking me to make them for him. So I often make a batch big enough for both of us.

I love the inspiration behind this Company! When Vikesh developed digestive problems, his Mum came to his rescue making him some healthy home remedies. When he was unable to find a Company who could provide him with Organic, Fresh, and ready packed Smoothies; he handed in his notice and started his own! With the help of his Mum too!

I received my email notification to let me know that the box would be arriving via DPD on Monday 4th March. I then received an hour time slot which was 13:41-14:41, and sure enough it landed at 13:41! I love it when this happens, no waiting around at all. I had to wait for my Son Joel to arrive home from School as he wanted to help me unbox this. He loves Smoothies!

I opened the box which was packaged with wool and dry ice to ensure the freshness. I popped the packs into the freezer until he got home.

So what is in our box?

We received 5 Smoothie kits:

  • The Glowing One
  • Mai Chai
  • Smoothie Spice
  • The Almond Tart One
  • Morgenfrisk

There is also a Welcome booklet containing lots of information. They will even recycle your packaging! You collect the Woolly liners in the bag provided, go on your account to print a label, then drop them at your nearest Collect+ store! This is the first time in all of my years buying boxes have I seen a company that provide a service like this. It is of course brilliant!

Ok, so the only real way to tell you about this subscription is to taste test, of course this is the best part! We have selected 3 to taste test…

Morgenfrisk

Organic ready to blend Cucumber, Blueberry, White Grape, Beetroot & Avocado Smoothie with Buckwheat & Sunflower Seeds.

I blended this in my Breville Smoothie Maker after our unboxing. The pack made enough to fill 2 glasses. I had suspected that they were large portions, which is great as Joel and I had one each. I have to say this is unlike anything I have ever tried, it really reminds me of drinking breakfast from a glass. I think that is due to the buckwheat which are similar to porridge oats, and are used to make porridge too.

We both drank all of this, so filling and delicious. I am keen to get up tomorrow early to make another one now.

The Glowing One

Organic Ready-to-blend Broccoli, Strawberry, Kale, Cucumber & Apple Smoothie with Goji Berries, Sunflower Seeds & Spirulina.

This one is part of their Green Smoothie range. I was really grateful for this as I had been to the Dentist and was on a liquid only diet for the rest of the day. This could be eaten as soup in my opinion if you were to serve it warm of course. It filled me up for hours!

The Smoothie Spice

Organic Ready-to-blend Apple, Carrot & Beetroot Smoothie with Brazil Nuts, Ginger, Goji Berries, Mint & Tumeric.

True to its name, this one you can really taste the spices. I have never had a smoothie with tumeric in before! You can also taste the mint coming through which brings a freshness to this.

We still have ‘The Almond Tart’ and ‘Mai Chai’ left to try…

Our Verdict?

The one thing I really like about this subscription is the pack sizes. We made 2 glasses per smoothie kit. That to me offers value for money in comparison to other similar services out there that only come as a cup size.

The whole process was seamless, from delivery to making them. We definitely preferred the Morgenfrisk, and I think that is partly due to preferring berry Smoothies in general.

If you want to try this out, there was a code:
