9 Best Bottled Smoothie Brands to Try

Image used with permission by copyright holder

In certain instances, convenience is king. Although making the perfect smoothie from scratch is ideal, there are several reasons why we may not be able to. Perhaps your blender is on the fritz, and you haven’t gotten around to getting a new one. Maybe you haven’t had time to go buy groceries or you’re waiting on your food delivery service. Whatever the reason, there are still many bottled smoothie brands out there that are delicious and nutritious. Plus, you don’t have to worry about the messy clean-up of making a smoothie at home.

We tracked down some of the best bottled smoothie brands out there. Some are available at practically any grocer, some you may have to track down at more specialty (health-food) markets, and some you can get delivered right to your door.

Suja smoothies can be found at your more health-conscious markets and a few big-name retailers. The Vibrant Probiotic flavor contains a blend of organic, cold-pressed juices, along with probiotics to improve your gut health. If you look at the nutritional facts, you’ll notice a minimal amount of added sugar. However, the added sugar is negligible in comparison to the overall healthiness of the drink.

Evolution: Organic Super Fruit Greens

Evolution juices and smoothies are no new kids on the block. The company has been making healthy smoothies and juices for over 25 years. You can find Evolution juices practically anywhere, even Starbucks. The Organic Super Fruit Greens flavor is a favorite among health nuts because it packs in the nutrients without being heavy in sugar or carb content.

Rebbl: Chocolate Keto Elixer

The Rebbl organic chocolate keto smoothie could fall more into the realm of “protein shake.” The protein is 100% plant protein and is a certified vegan product great for meal replacement. What we like about it is this 12-ounce drink contains 25% of your daily value of fiber, which is more than any other smoothie brand we found. You’ll find Rebbl products at select retailers, or you can buy them directly from the company website.

Koia: Magic Mango Smoothie

This Koia Magic Mango smoothie is delicious (like all the Koia flavors) and comes with a healthy dose of prebiotic fiber. You may be wondering what the difference between probiotics and prebiotics is. Both are essential to gut health. The difference is that probiotics are a living strain of bacteria, and prebiotics are derived from plant fiber. In this case, Koia derives their probiotics from chicory root, baobab powder, and chia seeds. You can get Koia products direct from the source or at select retailers.

Noka: Superfood Smoothie Cherry/Acai

These last three smoothie brands are ones you won’t find in stores but are worth getting shipped to you. Noka smoothies don’t technically come in a bottle. Instead, they come in an easily crushable bag, great for on the go. All Noka smoothies are very low in sugar (less natural sugar than an apple), yet have enough nutrients to give you a quick pick-me-up. You can get these pre-made pouches directly from Noka in packs of six or twelve. The cherry/acai flavor is especially tasty.

Pulp & Press – Dragonfly

This Dragonfly smoothy from Pulp & Press is a delicious blend of avocado, cucumber, beets, blueberry, turmeric, and lime. This is yet another all-natural and organic smoothie brand that will ship right to your doorstep. This particular flavor packs almost as much fiber as the Rebbl drink (24%) and has a significant amount of potassium as well.

Raw Generation – Plant-Based Variety Pack

Raw Generation is a subscription-based beverage company that lets you create your own beverage boxes. You can choose from the option of smoothies, cold-pressed juices, and shots (of the health variety). Like the Rebble Elixer, the Raw Generation smoothies pack a lot of plant-based protein and other healthy ingredients. We’re partial to peanut butter because who doesn’t like peanut butter?

How to Choose the Best Bottled Smoothie

Before you just grab any smoothie out there, be mindful of added fillers and sugars. Some pre-made smoothies pack a ton of added sugar and filler juice from concentrate, making the smoothie no so healthy after all. There are some brands out there where you have to be cautious in this regard. Some smoothie flavors within a particular brand be very healthy and packed full of nutrition, while others might be empty sugar bombs. That’s why it’s crucial to read the label.

What you do want in a bottled smoothie are the same things you would look for in most meals. First, you want a nice balance of carbs, fat, and protein. The presence of a decent amount of fiber is also a good sign because that usually means whole fruits and veggies are being used. Lastly, if there isn’t a good portion of micronutrients (iron, magnesium, potassium), you’re missing the main point of consuming a smoothie.

Cannabidiol, or CBD, has been hot for a while now, making its way into everything from teas with CBD to a variety of coffee brands with CBD. If you're wondering "what is CBD?" — it's a naturally occurring compound present in cannabis plants. According to the World Health Organization, it's not addictive, has a solid safety profile, and won't get you high. In clinical trials, it's been effective in the treatment of epilepsy and shows promise in treating a number of other conditions.

In addition to CBD-infused water, tea, soda, and seltzer, another growing trend is CBD-infused nonalcoholic spirits and cocktails. The adult beverage market is flooded with CBD products promising to help you relax, sleep, destress, and mellow out, all without the hangover you'd get from booze (CBD is considered a controlled substance and can't be legally added to booze, at least not yet).

When you think of the best spirits in the American South, your mind likely immediately goes to bourbon whiskey. This form of whiskey is commonly associated with Kentucky (although it can be produced anywhere in the US) where around 95% of the sweet, corn-based whiskey is made.

Also, if you’re a fan of America’s “native spirit”, you probably assume the best of the best comes from big names like Buffalo Trace, Heaven Hill, Jim Beam, Wild Turkey, Woodford Reserve, or one of the other juggernauts of the American whiskey landscape. You wouldn’t think about an $80 expression from a little-known, smaller distillery.
