Our super smoothies are convenient and easy to make. Are you handy with a blender? Then you can definitely make a Zen breakfast smoothie. It’s almost like making a bowl of cereal, because you add milk. Instead everything goes into your blender, which does all the work.
Simply tear open a pouch of Zen and pour the mix into your blender with 12 oz (1.5 cups) or more of your favorite milk, and blend it on high for 30-60 seconds. How long it takes depend on your blender and whether you like it smooth or a little bumpy. Remember, you are grinding up all those seeds and nut, so it take a little time, but less time than most people take to nuke their breakfast or make toast.
If there's no nuts and seeds at the bottom, you've made it right. However, if you like your smoothie feeling a bit more au naturel, try a shorter run. After a few tries, you'll know just how you like it. Our fans experiment with Zen in all kinds of ways.
And just so you know, you don't need to add ice -- the fiber keeps it nice and thick. Just pour and serve. Each pouch makes two @8-ounce servings of smoothie that you can drink, share or refrigerate for later. With milk, Zen smoothies come in at about 200-250 calories total, depending on the type of milk you use.
At 200+ calories, Zen smoothies are like eating a bowl of cereal or 1-2 health food bars, but without all the carbs & sugars, or minutes of chewing required. Zen Breakfast Blend is the new way to take on your day, and the go-to breakfast option for everyone (2 years of age and older) looking to improve their diet and achieve a greater sense of well-being throughout the day.
If you haven't already, it's time to get cozy with your blender. It's so worth it! Zen is designed so that our mix grinds up quickly, and it works with virtually every kind of high speed blender.
Details? Well, in a typical home blender (250 to 750-watt motor), Zen Breakfast Blend grinds up in 30 to 60 seconds. Higher powered blenders should take even less time. If you don't know much about your blender's motor, don't worry, just blend and taste until you get the hang of it. You'll be a pro in no time.
For ultimate convenience, try using a Magic Bullet blender (60 seconds), a NutriBullet blender (30-40 seconds) or a Ninjia. Minimal cleanup, and once you've eyeballed how much milk to add, you'll never use a measuring cup again.
