How SmoothieBox Works

Emily Hurd | Nov 6 2018 | Tags: SmoothieBox News

SmoothieBox is not only a great healthy way to start your day, but it is also extremely convenient: Our smoothies can be made in a few minutes with minimal cleanup. 

How SmoothieBox Works

The reason we started this company was to help others create a lasting healthy breakfast routine. 

We wanted to make sure building a daily morning habit was as easy as possible, so SmoothieBox members receive a box each month that includes 20 pre-portioned frozen smoothie ingredients.

The way we see it, that is one smoothie for each morning of the work week. (You can have as much bacon as you want on the weekend, we won’t tell!)

We worked with a nutritionist to develop three well-balanced smoothie flavors.

Our main priority was to create a smoothie that could serve as a meal alternative – something that would keep you full until lunch, and give you your daily dose of vegetables while still tasting great.

We came up with three amazing flavors to offer through SmoothieBox: Super Smoothie CacaoSuper Smoothie Clementine, and Super Smoothie Green.

Members have the option of selecting a curated box of a mix of all three flavors or creating a custom box to their liking.

Now comes to the best part: Once you receive your delivery, a Super Smoothie can be made in minutes.

All you need to do is pour one frozen smoothie pouch and one collagen peptide pouch into a blender, add liquid, blend, and enjoy.

That’s it.

And cleanup is a snap - no grease covered pans or counters littered with ingredients.

Ordering and Delivery

After you make your order online,  your SmoothieBox should arrive between two to 10 days later.

Once your order ships from one of our Distribution Centers, picked up by Fedex, you will receive an email that lets you track its delivery.

We want to make sure you know when you will be getting your delicious smoothies.

You will also get an email as soon as your SmoothieBox arrives, which is almost always Tuesday through Saturday.

If you would like to track your delivery more closely or would rather receive text updates, you can also use the Fed-Ex Delivery Manager.

When you open your first SmoothieBox, each box is filled with:

  • 1 box of collagen peptide packets (20 packets)
  • 4 cartons of frozen Super Smoothie pouches. (Each carton contains 5 frozen pouches of a single flavor.)

Your SmoothieBox is packed with dry ice to keep your smoothies frozen and ready-to-blend.

If you have dry ice left in your box, do not touch it with your bare hands.

It is best if you can get your smoothies in the freezer as soon as they arrive - which is why we like to share as much tracking information as possible.

Don’t be afraid to ask a friendly neighbor to grab your box for you to help keep it cold if you can’t.

But be prepared to have to share your smoothies with the said neighbor.

As we said before, our Super Smoothies are perfect for a quick breakfast.

To prepare, just pour one frozen smoothie pouch and one collagen peptide pouch into a blender, add a favorite liquid, and blend.

Within a minute or two, breakfast is done.

Our smoothies taste great with just water, but they are great to customize with different liquids and flavors as well.

If you like your smoothies a bit creamier, you can blend with various milks (almond, whole, cashew or coconut).

Those looking for more protein in a post-workout smoothie can add protein powder or peanut butter, which add some more heft to our Super Smoothies.

And if a hint of sweetness is what you taste buds crave, you can add bananas, mangos, or blend with a fruit or vegetable juice.

We could go on and on.

The possibilities are endless.

After your first box

And don’t forget that SmoothieBox is a monthly subscription service.
Once you sign up, you will receive a month’s supply of smoothies delivered to your door each month, you don’t have to remember re-order or anything.
What will happen is that as your next SmoothieBox bill date approaches (usually the same day of the month that you originally signed up) you will get an email letting you know that your monthly order will be processed. 
And then, you will get your next month’s shipment of delicious SmoothieBox Super Smoothies between two to ten days after your bill date.
If you want to change the flavors you are getting, payment information, billing date, or order frequency, you can access and update your profile on our SmoothieBox account portal. This is great if there is one flavor you prefer over the others or want to get smoothies every two weeks or every other month.
The account portal can also help you change can change your billing date and the delivery window so that your box won’t arrive if you are on vacation.

More than anything, with SmoothieBox, it’s one less decision in your hectic morning and a great first step in your journey towards a healthy breakfast routine that lasts.
