The quest for the perfect at-home smoothie solution can be daunting with so many options available. In this blog post, we'll compare two popular choices—Bumpin Blends smoothie cubes and Kencko instant smoothies—to help you determine which brand is the ideal fit for your taste buds and health goals.
The Brands and Their Philosophy
- Bumpin Blends: A mom-run business that offers dietitian-designed smoothie cubes, combining delicious flavors with functional benefits targeting specific areas of health.
- Kencko: A brand focusing on plant-based, organic instant smoothie powders designed for convenience and nutrition.
- Bumpin Blends: Created by dietitians to ensure an optimal balance of nutrients, Bumpin Blends smoothie cubes are made from natural, whole food, organic, non-GMO ingredients, and are free of artificial preservatives and artificial sugars.
- Kencko: Offers 100% USDA organic, plant-based instant smoothie powders, with no added sugars or artificial ingredients, while emphasizing the importance of whole foods. Really high quality ingredients for a powder product!
- Bumpin Blends: Provides a wide range of 30 unique delicious flavors, which customers rave about.
- Kencko: Features a variety of flavors, but the taste and texture of the instant smoothie powders may not be as universally loved. Independent reviewers have had pretty negative thoughts on the taste and texture of the powder and the texture of mixing a plain powder with water rather than blending up smoothie cubes.
- Bumpin Blends: Smoothie cubes are designed to target specific areas of health, including energy, digestion, and skin health, allowing you to choose the blend that best supports your body's unique needs.
- Kencko: While their instant smoothie powders are packed with really beneficial nutrients, they don't specifically target specific health goals.
- Bumpin Blends: Smoothie cubes are easy to prepare by blending with your choice of liquid, providing a quick and convenient option for a healthy smoothie at-home. Could be made without a blender by shaking the cubes with milk or water.
- Kencko: Instant smoothie powders can be mixed with water or a liquid of your choice, offering a convenient and mess-free option that’s blenderless and super fast (great for on-the-go), but may lack the same texture and consistency as Bumpin Blends' smoothie cubes.
- Bumpin Blends: Offers a customizable subscription plan, allowing you to choose your preferred smoothie blends and delivery frequency. Bundles of 7-28 smoothies range from $98 to $268 monthly.
- Kencko: Provides a subscription-based service with various box sizes and delivery frequencies, but lacks the customization offered by Bumpin Blends. Smoothies pouches start at only $2.69, but aren’t available for individual sale.
Both Bumpin Blends smoothie cubes and Kencko instant smoothies offer convenient and nutritious options for your at-home smoothie needs. However, Bumpin Blends stands out with its taste above all else, especially compared to the negative reviews around Kencko’s taste and texture. Kencko has high quality ingredients compared to other powders, but Bumpin Blends’ use of whole, real foods makes them stand out nutritionally as well. Cheers to your health and well-being!
