The Good Stuff – Ready-to-blend superfood smoothies delivered to your door

Start your day or finish it with a Superfood smoothie

I’ve recently been making smoothies, but they’re usually just a couple frozen bananas and berries, as the fresh veggies in my fridge usually expire before I manage to consume them all. Recently, though, I sampled the smoothies from The Good Stuff and I tell you, there’s been all sorts of other goodness in my cup.

The Good Stuff smoothies are packaged individually and can be picked up individually at UBC or in North Van, can be delivered in packs of 6-10 to your door, or in bundles of 20 where you choose from a family, weight loss, or athlete bundle. Prices vary depending on the amount you buy each time, but range from $4-$6.

The prepped smoothie-packs are the brainchild of two guys, Tonner and Mike, that went to University together and found they didn’t have the ingredients on hand to make a balanced smoothie; smartly done boys!

Weight Loss Smoothie Bundle

There are six main flavours with a variety of different ingredients and inspirations. The Diesel Monster is a muscle builder, the Easy Greens a cleanse, the Kitsilano Sunrise antioxidant booster, the Madagascar a stress buster, the Thunderbird a performance fuel and the Wise Ninja an anti-inflammatory. You’ll have to try them all once to find a favourite, I’m fond of the Kitsilano Sunrise, fittingly, it’s a combination of Carrot, Banana, Chard, Spinach, Brazil Nuts, Maple Syrup, Turmeric, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Black Pepper.

The ingredients come in recyclable paper cups that you can fill with water, juice, almond milk, kefir, coconut milk or liquid of your choice, blend up and serve. They’re so easy and so very nutritious. I’ll be ordering more this week.phpthumb generated thumbnail
