Every Tuesday I try a new product and post a (brutally honest) review. Today, I’m sharing my experience with Blender Bombs smoothie booster: a super-convenient, plant-based way to add a BIG nutritional boost to your smoothies.
I first heard about Blender Bombs from The Real Food Dietitians web site. (If you aren’t following them, you should be!) Blender Bombs are pre-portioned nuggets that you can drop into your blender (along with fruit, greens and liquid) for a nutritional boost. They are plant-based, gluten-free and made with real food ingredients. They’re currently available only via mail order and will keep unrefrigerated for three weeks.
Blender Bombs differ from traditional “energy bites” because most energy bites are 70% dates and honey and 30% nuts/seeds. Not only that, but a lot of them are full of rice blend protein powder and other artificial ingredients. Blender Bombs are 70% nuts and seeds, and 30% dates and honey to bind them together.

- 1/4 cup of fruit
- handful of greens
- Collagen – my favorite brands are Vital Proteins or Primal Foods
- One Blender Bomb
- Unsweetened almond milk, coconut milk or a combo
If you’ve been following me for a while you know that I’m a huge fan of a Fab Four Smoothies as they keep me full for hours. I love the idea of starting my day with a healthy combination of protein, fiber, fruit and greens.
And popping in a Blender Bomb means that I don’t have to have a gazillion open containers of nuts, seeds, powders, etc. Everything I need is one tasty little nugget.
I have personally tried (and LOVED) these Blender Bomb flavors:
Cacao and Peanut Butter – dates, peanuts, cacao (raw chocolate), flax seeds, almonds, hemp seeds, chia seeds, sea salt, local raw honey, walnuts, and bee pollen. ROLLED IN: cinnamon, vanilla bean, and pecans.
Original Blender Bombs: pecans, dates, local raw honey, flax seeds, hemp seeds, cinnamon, vanilla seed, almonds, chia seeds, walnuts, and bee pollen.
Cacao Almond Butter and Coffee – pecans, walnuts, dates, flax seeds, local honey, almond butter, sea salt, ground coffee, hemp seeds, chia seeds, cinnamon, cacao (raw chocolate), and bee pollen. ROLLED IN: cinnamon, vanilla bean, and flax seeds.
Goji, Coconut and Acai – pecans, dates, acai, walnuts, local raw honey, goji berries, coconut, almonds, flax seeds, hemp seeds, and bee pollen. ROLLED IN: cinnamon, vanilla bean, and pecans. The frozen wild blueberries are dehydrated below 118 degrees so they do not lose any nutrients in the drying process.
Here are the other Blender Bomb flavors (that I have not yet personally tried):
Aloe and Collagen: pecans, dates, walnuts, local raw honey, almonds, flax seeds, hemp seeds, chia seeds, aloe, collagen, and bee pollen. ROLLED IN: cinnamon, vanilla bean, and pecans.
Nut Free Blender Bombs – coconut, sunflower seeds, local raw honey, flax seeds, hemp seeds, chia seeds, dates. ROLLED IN: cinnamon, vanilla bean, and flax seed.
Peppermint and Cacao – pecans, dates, walnuts, local raw honey, goji berries, coconut, almonds, flax seeds, hemp seeds, peppermint oil, cacao powder, cacao nibs, and bee pollen. ROLLED IN: cinnamon, vanilla bean, and pecans.
