Modern-day life can make it difficult to jump aboard the health bandwagon, with hectic schedules and long working weeks. Adding in the task of making nutritious smoothies can be quite a hassle.
However, many brands want to help customers achieve their health goals conveniently.
Companies such as Evive Nutrition’s smoothie cubes could be a way of incorporating more fruit and vegetables into a diet, so let’s take a look at what the smoothie cubes actually are, how many calories they contain, how much they cost and where exactly you can buy them.
What are smoothie cubes?
Smoothie cubes are a great idea for anyone who loves to prep ahead of time.
Rather than buying fresh fruit and vegetables to blend into smoothies, the smoothie cubes are made in advance so you can store them in the freezer for when you need them.
Smoothie cubes cut out the negatives of wasting gone-off fruit you forgot to blend, and also keep for a really long time in the freezer.
Plus, some brands of smoothie cubes don’t even require a blender, so more people can get in on the smoothie action easily.
