As kitchen tools go, a high-speed blender is a worthwhile investment. From grinding pesto to making nut flour, there are myriad ways to put this machine to work. Of course, the most obvious use might be for smoothies. These beverages are easy breakfast items, nutritious afternoon snacks, and can help you refuel after a workout. If you’re in a bit of a smoothie rut and always rely on the same couple of recipes, it’s time to shake things up with a blender bomb.
The History of Blender Bombs
Blender Bombs was founded by Helen Hall, who’s always had a passion for nutrition, health, and movement. In 2017, she created lifestyle brand Hushup X Hustle to share her wellness journey, which was inspired by an accidental weight gain of 30 pounds after experimenting with fad diets and extreme exercise. To find balance again, Hall replaced one meal a day with a smoothie—and the rest is history.
Blender Bombs Company Mission
This brand makes it easy to achieve your health goals by upgrading your smoothie with nutritious ingredients to help you feel full, energized, and ready to tackle the day. Designed to make your smoothie a satisfying meal replacement, you can also break them over a bowl or bite them for an on-the-go snack.
Benefits of Blender Bombs
Plant-based bombs work for a variety of diets, such as paleo, vegetarian, and gluten-free. The base of every bomb is the same—including chia seeds, almonds, hemp seeds, flax seeds, pecans, bee pollen, honey, walnuts, cinnamon, and vanilla bean—which means nutritional profiles are similar across the board. Just choose your favorite flavor combo and you’re good to go.
