Nothing beats a good smoothie. They are healthy, you can take them on the road and you can cram a ton of healthy ingredients in one tasty drink. The only part of it that stinks is all the prep work that is involved. The washing, chopping and portioning of fruit and veggies takes time, and that is something that I don’t always have a lot of. I am a big fan of smoothie shortcuts.
My latest smoothie hack is thanks to Shine Organics. Shine Organics is basically an adult version of those fruit and veggie pouches we love for our kids. They are convenient and portable, but this is no baby food. Shine Organics was created to make superfoods more accessible. They are packed with real fruits and vegetables, chia seeds, and more. They are organic, non-GMO, vegan and gluten-free. The pouches have no BPA and were packaged that way since it creates less waste therefore being better for the environment.
I love to enjoy them as an on the go snack or to squeeze a pouch into my smoothie! It is a super easy way to add a healthy boost into my drink, with zero effort. They are perfect when I am in a rush but still crave a smoothie. It is also good on top of yogurt or cottage cheese. Since Shine Organics uses finely milled organic chia seeds which gives them a smooth consistency. Because of the chia seeds, the pouches are a good source of Omega-3’s.
They have 4 different recipes to try and every one is really unique. I really want to have the purple “Calm” variety, but it is sold out every time! It sounds so good, with blackberry and passion flower combine with coconut, pumpkin, and banana. You can find Shine Organics in the applesauce section of Target. I have a $1 off coupon if you want to give the pouches a try! Just click here to get yours.
