Blender Bombs have taken the health food world by storm. These are incredible additions to your smoothie that pack it full of the best nutrients you could ask for. When it comes to how to make Blender Bombs, we are not talking about making the actual Blender Bomb, but making a smoothie which you add the bomb to.
Basically, Blender Bombs are little balls that come packed with nutrients. They are made from plant-based ingredients and are rich in fats, fiber, protein, and lots of other goodness. In fact, Blender Bombs have 70% of your daily potassium requirements. This is a nutrient that almost no Americans get enough of.
By adding a Blender Bomb to your smoothie, you are turning an ordinarily healthy drink into a full meal that is satisfying and delicious, not to mention jammed with all kinds of nutrients and minerals. The best thing about the Blender Bombs is that you don’t need to make them. You can make your own interesting smoothie and simply drop the Blender Bomb into your blender.
In fact, the simplest way to make use of a Blender Bomb is by dropping it into your blender, adding a single banana, a handful of greens, and your favorite liquid, then hitting the blender button This will give you a very satisfying breakfast, totally erasing the need for you to cook or to prepare anything.
Best of all is that you can experiment with flavors. The Blender Bombs come in seven different varieties as of the time this article was written. You can get it in cacao & peanut butter, goji, coconut, acai, aloe & collagen, original, and more. My personal favorite is the cacao & peanut butter flavor!
How to Make Blender Bombs: What’s Inside Them?
Blender Bombs are great for saving you money while still boosting your smoothies with all the best and most expensive ingredients. Each variety comes with fairly similar ingredients since every Blender Bomb is packed full of superfoods. You can expect to find dates, nuts, and seeds that are all extremely expensive packed inside each bomb.
Things like flax, hemp, chia, and additional other superfoods can be found inside each Blender Bomb. When it comes to making smoothies, you must provide the fruits and vegetables while the Blender Bombs will supply you with all the energy and nutrients of the healthiest plant-based foods in the world.
For a rough idea, each Blender Bomb comes with about 130 calories, 8 grams of fat, 11 grams of carbohydrates, 4 grams of protein, and 4 grams of fiber. This is a staggering amount of nutrients to start your day off right.
Blender Bomb Recipes
Now I will take you through some of the best Blender Bomb recipes. These recipes are funky, unique, and you can use any type of Blender Bomb while making them.
One of the best things about the Blender Bombs is that they have virtually no flavor. No matter what type of bomb you use or what type of smoothie you create, you are never going to taste the Blender Bomb itself. This leaves you totally free for experimentation.
As a side note, I highly recommend using a powerful blender for all your Blender Bomb recipes. My favorite is always a Vitamix blender, as all the Vitamix blenders offer the power and speed you need to properly blend the bomb in with the rest of your ingredients.
