Welcome to my best Splendid Spoon Smoothies review, where I reveal my top choices along with the reasons why based on the following critical criteria rating factors (I'll keep it standard and rate each one on a 5 star rating scale):

  • Taste
  • Nutrition
  • Quality

Whether you're just getting introduced to Splendid Spoon smoothies, or an avid Splendid Spoon lover, this is the spot to check out their top smoothies, at least in my opinion. And, just for context, I've been using Splendid Spoon and drinking their smoothies for well over a year now (I probably ripped through every one of their smoothies by now). I have a bunch of unique, creative (real) images that I took at my home after my smoothies arrived, so you can feel confident knowing this is the real deal. After all, I live to serve!

I've already covered the brand and their meal delivery service on a few occasions here at GLAM Vegan. Once, when I wrote my (honest) Splendid Spoon review (read it here), another where I compiled a best vegan meal delivery review list, and some comparisons – one to the most relevant smoothie brand, Splendid Spoon vs Daily Harvest: Which is better?

Next, I have a special table, ranking my favorite smoothies based on my critical criteria, AKA rating factors – taste, nutrition and quality.

#1: Pumpkin Spice Smoothie

I've “tried them all.” Seriously, if there isn't a smoothie by Splendid Spoon I haven't tried, I'd be surprised. The Pumpkin Spice Smoothie is by far the best Splendid Spoon smoothie I have ever drank out of their entire product lineup. Let's take a look at the ingredients, then get into the criteria.

Pumpkin Spice splendid spoon smoothie

Ingredients

  • pumpkin
  • apple juice
  • purified water
  • almond butter
  • pea protein
  • lemon juice
  • baobab
  • vanilla powder
  • cinnamon
  • ginger
  • nutmeg
  • allspice
  • Himalayan salt
  • turmeric

Taste

Taste Rating: 5/5 ⭐

This smoothie literally tastes like pumpkin pie. It's fairly sweet, which is kind of out of the norm for a splendid spoon smoothie. It also has a very healthy taste to it. The texture is very smooth and overall it's the best one I've had. Here's to Splendid Spoon's Pumpkin Spice Smoothie to staying in the lineup, cheers!

Nutrition

Nutrition Rating: 4.5/5 ⭐

The top ingredients in this smoothie have some major health benefits that I'd like to talk about real quick and that's part of this nutrition rating criteria.

The first ingredient that I'll cover is almond butter. Almond butter is high in monounsaturated fats. According to a 2019 study published by the US National Library of Medicine, monounsaturated fats help lower LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol) and raise HDL cholesterol (the good cholesterol) by reducing the development of plaques that clog arteries.

The other ingredient that I think is key is turmeric. Turmeric's main ingredient is curcumin, which has significant evidence of heart and oral-related health benefits. In addition to that, many scientists have linked turmeric and curcumin to fight inflammation, although high doses are required to get to that point, it is worthy to note.

Quality

Quality Rating: 4.9/5 ⭐

The quality of this smoothie is excellent. All ingredients are plant-based, which speaks to the quality of nutrition they invest in. Yes, everything about Splendid Spoon is pricey (it's expensive and not cheap), but, to me the quality matches the price point.

Final Verdict

Overall Rating: 4.8/5 ⭐

Hopefully the Pumpkin Spice Smoothie is something they keep in the product line after the fall season. Without question, it tastes great and I feel great about starting my day with healthy ingredients all packed into a smoothie. No food preparation and zero mess to clean up afterwards.


#2: Strawberry Chocolate Smoothie

This used to be my top choice, until the pumpkin spice smoothie was released. There's a few things in life that I adore, and two of them are in this smoothie's title – Strawberry and Chocolate. Let's take a quick look at the ingredients.

Strawberry Chocolate splendid spoon smoothie

Ingredients

  • strawberry puree
  • banana
  • coconut cream
  • dates
  • pea protein
  • cacao powder
  • beet juice
  • vanilla extract
  • Himalayan salt

Taste

Taste Rating: 4/5 ⭐

For a healthy, fruit-type of smoothie the taste is good. I wouldn't say amazing, but good enough so you can enjoy what you purchased it for, which is to get the nutrients, vitamins and minerals into your daily diet. Some may not agree with me, that's fine, but I believe I nailed my rating on this critical criteria.

Nutrition

Nutrition Rating: 5/5

One of the main points of emphasis lately with Splendid Spoon was to improve the amount of protein in their smoothies. Well, I'd like to touch on pea protein, a main ingredient in this smoothie, and one of the main reasons why I rated this particular one at #2. Pea protein has all nine essential amino acids that you're body must get from food. It's a great source of branched-chain amino acids, which promote heart health and healthy blood flow.

Quality

Quality Rating: 5/5

You have to look at the quality of ingredients, taste and health benefits of this smoothie in order to rate the quality. I can say without a doubt that as you drink this smoothie it just feels healthy. It's also smooth, with no chunks or weird textures. Grade-A HQ all the way.

Final Verdict

Overall Rating: 4.7/5

If you're looking to add more protein to your diet, this smoothie is a great option. It's one of my favorites and will most likely continue to be moving forward.

#3: Raspberry Cacao Smoothie

Some days, I need some good antioxidants in my diet, as there are many health benefits with them. And, when I'm needing that most, the Raspberry Cacao Smoothie is my go-to option. Check out the list of ingredients listed below:

Raspberry Cacao splendid spoon smoothie

Ingredients

  • purified water
  • raspberries
  • bananas
  • coconut nectar
  • cashew butter
  • pea protein
  • beet juice
  • rose water
  • vanilla extract
  • cacao
  • Himalayan salt

Taste

Taste Rating: 4.7/5

This is one of my favorite tasting splendid spoon smoothies. You can really taste the banana and obviously the raspberry, but also the vanilla. It's a sweeter taste, which I love, but not too sweet as it's natural sugar from the fruits and vanilla extract.

Nutrition

Nutrition Rating: 4.6/5

I've been very pleased and impressed with the Raspberry Cacao smoothie in terms of nutritional value, which is why I choose to eat Splendid Spoon. Fruits like raspberries provide a great source of antioxidants. They are high in vitamin C, quercetin and ellagic acid. We already know what pea protein brings to the table. Now, let's talk about beet juice real quick and the health benefits associated with it. There have been numerous scientific studies that prove beet juice helps with lowering blood pressure and improves exercise stamina. I live a very active lifestyle and these benefits are very important to me.

Quality

Quality Rating: 4.5

Based on the ingredients, taste and health benefits, the overall quality of the Raspberry Cacao is great. The texture is incredibly smooth, which isn't easy to do with raspberries. Great job to the team at Splendid Spoon on this one.

Final Verdict

Overall Rating: 4.6/5

Again, this is obviously one of my top Splendid Spoon smoothies because of the nutrients I get from it. I'm always looking to optimize my overall health and wellness, this smoothie helps with that.

#4: Coconut Lime Smoothie

Sometimes I crave coconut, and, when I do, it's the Coconut Lime Smoothie I reach for in the fridge. An excellent option for those who like both lime and coconut. A look at the ingredients:

Coconut Lime splendid spoon smoothie

Ingredients

  • avocado
  • coconut cream
  • lime
  • cashew butter
  • coconut nectar
  • swiss chard
  • spirulina

Taste

Taste Rating: 3.9/5

To be honest, this isn't my favorite tasting smoothie of the four, but it did make my list, and that's because of the avocado ingredients. To me, it's worth “sacrificing” taste to get proper nutrition.

Nutrition

Nutrition Rating: 4.9/5

Mainly the only reason why this smoothie made my top list is the health benefits associated with avocado. Avocados are an excellent source for vitamins C, E, K and B6, as well as potassium. A recent study shows that an avocado per day keeps your gut in healthy check. I've always been a firm believer in the benefits surrounding avocados, so this comes to no surprise to me.

Quality

Quality Rating: 4.5/5

This is my opinion – each of my top splendid spoon's smoothies have outstanding texture. Texture in a smoothie is really big for me, as I hate swallowing chunks of ingredients. The quality as a whole with the Coconut Lime Smoothie is really good and I feel my rating is fair.

Final Verdict

Overall Rating: 4.5/5

If you like coconuts and you're looking to incorporate avocados into your diet, this smoothie is a great choice.

FAQs

Let's go over a few frequently asked questions that you may have, or maybe someone else has asked me that I believe are pretty popular. I'll provide answers based on Splendid Spoon's FAQ page, as well as my own personal experiences with their smoothies (from ordering, to delivery to drinking them).
