Fresh Green Smoothies
UPDATE OCTOBER 2016: WE HAVE STOPPED MAKING FRESH GREEN SMOOTHIES. THE WEBSITE IS NOT YET FULLY UPDATED TO ONLY REFLECT THE DIY PRODUCTS. WE ARE WORKING ON IT. FOR NOW WE CONTINUE TO OFFER BLENDERS, AND WE ARE INVESTIGATING IF WE’D LIKE TO EXPAND BEYOND THAT. MAKING FRESH SMOOTHIES GAVE US IMMENSE JOY AND PRIDE, BUT TURNED OUT TO NOT BE SUSTAINABLE ON THE SCALE WE’RE EQUIPPED TO HANDLE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING. LINDA VELS – OWNER.
We make Green Smoothies for all Capetonians* who simply do not have enough hours in the day to make Green Smoothies for themselves. We are here for you to save you the grocery run, the produce wash and the kitchen cleanup. In other words we save you the time and hassle. But why would you want to incorperate Green Smoothies into your lifestyle in the first place? Well let’s have a look at what a Green Smoothie exactly is, how we make ours, and – most importantly – which benefits you may expect from taking them regularly.
What is a Green Smoothie?
A Green Smoothie is a specific type of smoothie that combines fruits with leafy vegetables. Typically the ratio between the two is about 65/35. Green Smoothies are an awesome way to increase your fruit & veg intake without spending a lot of time on preparation, and without losing any of the nutrients that for example juicing or boiling would. The taste of the veggies is ‘hidden’ behind the stronger tasting fruits. Each of our Green Smoothies is named after its 2 main fruits, and it is that powerful combination that determines its flavour. You see the leafy veggies, but you taste the fruits. This is the awesome magic trick that made the Green Smoothie a huge success in the US and Europe, and now it’s slowly starting to gain proper recognition in SA as well.
What goes into our Green Smoothies?
What do we put into our Green Smoothies? The answer is very simple: we put fruits, leafy vegetables and filtered water into them. No colorants, no preservatives, no flavourings, nothing artificial! We take pride in the fact that all our Green Smoothies are 100% natural, raw, vegan and made fresh for you the day before delivery. And if you’d like we can add a Booster to yours. You can pick your favorite from these options: Organic Raw Chia Seeds, Organic Wheatgrass Powder, Organic Hemp Seed Powder, Organic Raw Spirulina Powder, Organic Crushed Flaxseeds & Moringa Leaf Powder.
