Well there is a company named Green Blender which delivers superfood smoothie recipes and ingredients. 

How it works?

We only use the best produce and superfoods, and focus on working with organic and local farms, to create a uniquely balanced menu.

Blend it
We believe it's important to build a relationship with what you consume. That's why our recipes are more than just a list of ingredients, but a course in micro-biology. As you blend, you'll learn how our carefully crafted smoothies will nourish your body and mind. That's knowledge you can taste.

You are what you drink. Our smoothies are packed with essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, proteins and fiber. Their benefits are endless: clearer skin, heightened mental clarity, increased energy, and weight loss. And, their nutrients are known to reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease. You're welcome, body.

 It's the perfect size to share with someone you love. 
Or love yourself twice as much.

I absolutely love this company & 
they give you 5 amazing smoothie recipes with each box. 

Each smoothie is totally different and tastes incredible.

 veggies & fruit into their diet or the person who just loves to be healthy! 

GreenBlender is a smoothie delivery service. Each week, we send our members original smoothie recipes and pre-portioned ingredients to make smoothies at home. We focus on sourcing the highest quality ingredients, and work with organic farms, urban and local farms, green markets, and vendors who value sustainable practices whenever possible. We believe that small, healthy changes can make a huge difference. We empower you to do just that by making it dead simple to start your day with a healthy decision.

What's the difference between smoothies and juices?

A smoothie is a beverage that is blended (with a blender) from whole pieces of fruit, vegetables, and other ingredients. The outcome is a nutrient rich, thick and filling shake. Juicing, on the hand, involves a liquid extractor (juicer) that separates the juice and the pulp into different compartments. Juice is a thin and liquidy drink, that is also nutrient packed, but more hydrating than filling. One of the main advantages to blending, over juicing, is that blending maintains all parts of your ingredients, including fiber, which is essential for digestion.

What equipment do I need at home?

All you'll need is a blender and some water. We'll take care of the rest. We'll send you 5 smoothie recipes and all the ingredients you'll need to make them each week. Some recipes might require you to have a knife or a vegetable peeler. But rest assured, we'll pre-portion your ingredients, so you don't have to measure a thing. It's easier than pie.

Are your ingredients organic?

Yes, all of our ingredients are organic and non-GMO. In the rare event where we are unable to source an organic ingredient we may include a conventional, or minimally treated substitute. All substitutions are clearly marked on your box's weekly menu.

Where do source your ingredients?

We source the highest quality ingredients for our smoothies. We partner with farmers, green markets, and purveyors to ensure our produce is organic, local and seasonal whenever possible. Our recipes will often include unique ingredients, whose flavor and nutritional profiles might surprise you (in a good way). In addition to fresh fruits and vegetables, our smoothies include hard to find superfoods and add-ins like chia seeds, flaxseed, goji berries, acai berries, maca, matcha, cacao nibs, hemp protein, and much more. Farms we've sourced from include Brooklyn Grange, Gotham Greens, Lancaster Farms, just to name a few. Feel free to check out all of our past recipes.

Is GreenBlender vegan?

Yes, all GreenBlender recipes vegan!

How long do the ingredients last?

Our ingredients are meant to last for the week in which they are delivered. We even have storage suggestions to help you keep your ingredients fresh for as long as possible.

How many calories are in your smoothies?

We actually don't think too much about calories, and we don't think you should either. Counting calories is an easy, and mostly effective, way to keep track of your food intake. But, it doesn't really provide the best way to understand the complex effects that food has on our bodies. Instead, we like to focus on putting whole foods with high nutritional value in our smoothies. In the mean time, there are a lot of resources online that can provide the caloric and nutritional information for you. Calorie Count has one that is very easy to use. And, you can find most of our recipes in our our recipe page. Generally, our smoothies have between 100-300 calories per serving.

I'm allergic to [insert allergy here]. Can I still order your smoothies?

Our ingredients are all portioned, assembled, and packaged in the same facility. So, if you have a serious allergy we do not recommend you order.

I have an intolerance, or dislike for [insert ingredient here]. Can you accommodate a substitution?

In order to provide our members with a unique menu each and every week, we cannot support substitutions at the moment. However, our ingredients are all individually packaged. Once you receive your delivery, it's very easy to skip a specific ingredient. If you choose to omit an ingredient from a recipe, we recommend that you keep some of your own substitute ingredients on hand.
