10 Vital Ingredient Smoothies Warriors

Let’s talk about super-charged meals in a glass. In fact, smoothies are everywhere and drinking them is a major trend in our healthy living lifestyles. We’ve been surprised at Vital, how many people have been trying to get healthier by replacing meals with pre-bottled high sugar content drinks. By blending random raw, green ingredients with water and nothing else to create an ultimate “trendy” drink. Recipes are often so complex –  a long list of fruits, vegetables and ingredients that you have never heard about before? At the grocery store, you forget which ingredients you need, or you can’t find the key ingredient and you end up filling your shopping basket full of ingredients you will only ever use for your smoothie so much of ends up in the bin.  Finally, you get everything home and into the kitchen, you blend your ingredients and it tastes awful? You’ve spent so much money on fancy ingredients and you’re never going to use them again.  It’s so frustrating when you are trying hard to improve your diet!

Does this sound familiar to you?

If you’ve answered yes, we’re guessing that you’re also struggling to find a shop bought smoothie that’s not packed full of sugar or preservatives and with that underlying taste of banana, so often used as a cheap option to pack them out!  They can also be so bland and tasteless that you can’t force yourself to drink it.  Fear not, we have a great alternative.

At Vital Ingredient, we want to make everything as simple as possible to you. We worked with a qualified nutritionist and have selected delicious, fresh ingredients that work amazingly together through testing multiple combinations in different quantities.  We finally created range of our 10 superhero smoothies, each with unique characteristics, to come to your rescue.
