Ok smoothie lovers, it’s about to be an exciting ride. We’re taking you down the rabbit hole and explaining everything we know about one of our personal favorite products. Blender Bombs are the smoothie product you needed yesterday and our Blender Bombs reviews will dive into all the wonderful details about them!
When we realized there wasn’t a Blender Bombs in depth review, across all of their flavors, we knew we needed to fill the void. We aim to answer any questions you may have about the brand and encourage you to try them out for yourself!
With all that being said, let’s start at the beginning.
How It All Started
Ever made a smoothie, chugged the whole (kind of gross) thing, only to feel hungry an hour or two later?
When founder of Blender Bombs, Helen Hall-Leland started incorporating smoothies into her daily routine, she was making them with nuts, seeds and dates. That amazing combination resulted in flavorful smoothies that were actually satisfying hunger too. But what she realized is that making smoothies with a lot of ingredients is time consuming and intimidating for most. Not to mention, when you buy all the ingredients to make them at home, it can get costly quick and lead to food waste.
From Helen’s personal nutrition journey and eye for a gap in the at-home smoothie market, the start of Blender Bombs began. Thanks to her hard work and dedication to providing filling yet tasty smoothies for all, Blender Bombs are now sold in major stores across the country as well as online.
Blender Bombs Ingredients & Flavor Review
For those that have never tried a Blender Bomb or are looking to explain to a new flavor, we’re sharing our thoughts and the specific details on each flavor that Blender Bombs currently offers.
One of the things I love about all of these flavors, is that each box (or bag if you get the new packaging) has a smoothie recipe on the back. So if you’re wondering what fruit or other additional ingredients work best with each Blender Bomb, you can just reference the back of the packaging for an idea.
Original Blender Bomb
Not sure if you’re going to be feeling a more fruity, more nutty or more caffeinated smoothie day to day? That sounds like the original Blender Bomb flavor could be a good fit for you.
The original flavor is also the base list of ingredients for most of the other flavor options as well. So what you will find in most of the blender bombs (with a few exceptions) are:
- Some kind of combination of nuts. This original bomb has pecans, almonds and walnuts
- A variation of seeds like hemp seeds, flaxseeds and chia seeds in the original bomb
- Lots of sweet taste coming from things like the dates, raw honey and vanilla in this original flavor
- Additional powerful ingredients from elements of bee pollen and aloe vera
With it’s more generic (but still mainly nutty) flavor, you can easily go for different flavor profiles with this original bomb option. Let the morning speak to you and dictate what type of smoothie you want for the day!
Goji, Coconut & Açai Blender Bomb
All the coconut haters out there that glaze over this flavor should hear me out when I say give it a try!
I’m one of people that despises coconut in things yet I have gotten these blender bombs on the regular.
What you’ll find with every bomb is that they are packed with a ton of ingredients. But it’s just enough of each ingredient that one doesn’t fully overpower the other. So with coconut, it doesn’t have so much in there that it overpowers the entire bomb taste.
What you will notice regardless of flavor, is the impact of all the essential amino acids and whole food ingredients in a smoothie. By replacing powders with something more substantial like a Blender Bomb, you stay full longer and even potentially curb sugar cravings.
Aloe & Irish Sea Moss Blender Bomb
Not to get too detailed here but have y’all read up on the benefits of sea moss? It became super trendy recently but get this. Blender bombs has been offering this bomb flavor for years. Doing things before they were “cool” makes you like them even more right?
Sea moss boasts a ton of potential health benefits due to it being so nutrient dense. While aloe vera is typically thought of as a burn cream, it does have health benefits too. If you’re having digestion issues for example, aloe vera might be a natural solution to look into further.
Aloe vera and sea moss are the first two ingredients of this particular flavor, so you’ll be able to get a little dose of both by throwing one of these into your smoothies!
Cacao & Peanut Butter Blender Bomb
We’ve made it to my personal favorite flavor. Any peanut butter fans out there will love this Blender Bomb flavor too!
All blended up, this chocolate and peanut butter smoothie hides spinach or cauliflower rice like a champ. You’ll easily get your veggies in with this bomb if that’s your goal. I’ve also thrown in a little coffee into a smoothie with this Blender Bomb before and it still tastes incredible.
My blender is super old so I sometimes get tiny chunks of the bomb in a sip. In the beginning I was so scared of dates for some reason (change is hard I guess)? But now I kind of love getting a little piece of this bomb in my smoothie because it’s just that good.
Coffee, Almond Butter & Cacao Blender Bomb
First thing in the morning you can find me with a cup of coffee, a smoothie and some water too. Some days it feels like a little much to try and juggle it all. Because of that, I’m a huge fan of the Coffee, Almond Butter & Cacao Blender Bomb.
While the bomb itself does not have a ton of caffeine in it, the flavor profile makes it perfect to add a splash of your favorite coffee in it as you blend up the smoothie. Add a little extra ice to your smoothie batch when using this Blender Bomb flavor and it will give you frappe vibes.
Sunflower Seed & Coconut Blender Bomb
The Blender Bombs family isn’t going to forget those with nut allergies. That’s where the Sunflower Seed & Coconut flavored Blender Bomb comes to save the day!
With similar ingredients to other flavors (but with all nuts removed), this bomb is still still sure to keep you full. Also, if you have kids that go to a nut-free school, consider packing these as a filling snack option.
But I’m not going to lie, this is the one flavor I haven’t tried personally. I didn’t want to buy a whole package of them, in case the coconut flavor was too strong. Coconut is kind of dusted around the outside of each bomb so it seems likely that they probably have more coconut presence? All the reviews I found raved about this flavor though.
So how about y’all try this flavor out for us so we can let others know if it’s as tasty as we bet it is (for people that like coconut of course)!
How to Use Blender Bombs
Blender Bombs are actually pretty darn flexible when it comes to how you might want to use them.
Obviously we’ve already talked about the main use of Blender Bombs as a filling as heck source of flavor in your morning, afternoon or nighttime smoothie. But you can totally use these bombs in a few other ways too!
If you’re a yogurt or oatmeal kind of breakfast person in the morning, make it more hearty by crumbling a bomb on top. Again, with all the different flavors you could customize the Blender Bomb you crumble to mesh well with your yogurt or granola.
Last but not least, it might sound simple but did you ever consider eating them like an energy ball? If you’re someone that is already running around from one place to another or need a quick snack on the way to the gym, keep a bag of Blender Bombs in your bag for easy on-the-go snack options.
We tried to make them at home…
I’ve mentioned it before but I’m someone that is always searching for a good deal because I’m not a fan of spending money.
A few years ago I fell in love with Blender Bombs when a friend let me try her smoothie. I ran (did not walk) to get my own stash and honestly had a little sticker shock at checkout. So after a finished my one package, I naturally tried to make them myself.
Making Blender Bombs at home that taste decently similar is not that difficult.
But what IS difficult, is sticking with the work of making a smoothie that includes enough whole ingredients to last me throughout the day.
Blender Bombs are incredibly convenient. It’s as simple as that.
And when I did the math, if I chose to make my smoothie at home I ultimately spent more.
Wonder how that could be?
Not just because ingredients are expensive these days (and I was wasting them) but because I wasn’t including all the same ingredients (due to time or budget) I’d start snacking mid morning which costs an additional amount. But then I also would sometimes skip a morning smoothie altogether which led to more food waste.
You’ve got to take your own journey but I’m here to say that I find Blender Bombs a worthy cost for my health and longevity.
Well friends, I think that about covers our love of Blender Bombs and why we love each flavor. But did you know that Blender Bombs also makes Bomb Bars too? That’s a chat for another day. But we hope you’ll consider adding these little nuggets of delight into your daily routine.
Oh and I forgot to mention that my other go-to item for smoothies is powdered peanut butter. If you’re looking to know the difference between PBFit and PB2, be sure to read up on our post about it.
And if you try them out, be sure to let us know your thoughts! As always, we suggest you do your own research but for us, Blender Bombs are the smoothie ingredient of the future!
