As someone who grew up in a somewhat health-conscious family, I knew the importance of getting enough vitamins and minerals in my body, and ideally from “real foods.” But as a busy professional, I don’t always have the time, or energy, to make that happen.
Sure, I opt for the occasional salads and buy fresh veggies from the grocery store, but there really wasn’t that much variety on my rotation–especially during busy work seasons where I cook the same things over and over again. Or worse: I go for quick drive-through breakfasts and meals that would leave me bloated and unfocused by 10:30 am.
That's when I discovered kencko.
These instant smoothies have made it easy for me to get all the nutrients I need and I’ve never felt healthier and more full of energy. The best part is that they take literally 60 seconds to prepare, and each smoothie adds 2.5 cups of organic fruits and veggies and "superfoods", all packed with different essential plant nutrients and absolutely bursting with flavor!
Delicious flavors for every season
After I discovered kencko 2 years ago, I’ve since tried just about every flavor they’ve had to offer. The thing about kencko is they have a wide variety of different flavors to choose from, each one with different benefits. Often, they’ll also introduce seasonal flavors, like pumpkin for fall, oranges for summer, and more.
The only flavor I was not a huge fan of was their tomato-based smoothies, but that’s also because I’m not a huge tomato person. That said, every other flavor I’ve tried has been absolutely amazing.
After I started drinking kencko smoothies every day for breakfast, I noticed a big difference in my energy levels throughout the day–no more afternoon slumps. My mood has greatly improved, too, and I feel so much better about my body thanks to all the nutrients I'm getting! Even my skin has improved–I'm noticing way less breakouts, which I have to attribute to kencko.
My favorite go-to kencko smoothie flavor has to be the Purples, made out of freeze-dried blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, cranberries, bananas, strawberries, and dates. Each packet of the Purples flavor has 11% of the daily recommended fiber, and 25% of the daily recommended vitamin C!
Other flavors I love include:
- Mochas: coffee, cacao beans, maqui berries, dates, strawberries, shiitake mushroom, chaga mushroom, baobab powder, and cinnamon
- Crimsons: açai, banana, strawberry, apple, mango, cinnamon, and chia seeds
- Peaches: peach, carrot. rhubarb, strawberry, sweet potato, coconut water, baobab powder, flax seeds, and apple
- Reds: strawberry, raspberry, banana, apple, dates, ginger, and chia seeds
How kencko powers my day
When I get up in the morning, I like to mix the kencko packet with 12oz milk and a scoop of vanilla protein powder as I usually want something more filling in the mornings. I sip on my smoothie while I finish getting ready for the day! It literally cannot be easier and making a kencko smoothie has become a part of my morning routine that I love.
Then around 2-3 pm, I like to go for another kencko packet as an afternoon pick-me-up. Depending on what I’m feeling like, I might make another smoothie as I did in the morning, or I mix the packets with chilled water and ice for something lighter and refreshing.
Convenient and affordable
Pretty much all the kencko smoothies I’ve tried are really delicious and super quick to make. They're made with all-natural organic ingredients, pre-packaged for single servings, AND are shelf-stable!
kencko subscriptions come in 3 different monthly plans: the 20 smoothies plan cost $2.99 per smoothie, the 30 smoothies plan cost $2.69 per smoothie and the 60 smoothies plan cost $2.49 per smoothie. All the plans come with a free nutritional consultation with a registered dietitian.
So yes, as someone who values quality and convenience, I would say kencko is 100% worth it!
Overall, I’ve loved my experience with kencko and how it has integrated so seamlessly into my lifestyle. The smoothies are very affordable and incredibly convenient for fast-paced lifestyles like mine. I also appreciate the company’s thoughtfulness about varying the flavors from time to time to make it more interesting. But most of all, I love knowing that I’m consuming real foods that actually give my body the fuel it needs to really thrive.
