What is Splendid Spoon?
Splendid Spoon is a plant-based meal delivery service that provides you with smoothies, soups, grain bowls, and juice shots each week. All the meals are gluten-free and vegan (no meat, fish, poultry, eggs, or dairy).
Can you customize your meals?
You can choose which meals you receive each week from a menu of 15 different smoothies, 30 soups and grain bowls, 5 light soups, and 2 wellness shots by editing your order after you subscribe to the service.
You can also edit your order to only receive smoothies, only receive soups and grain bowls, only receive light soups, or only receive smoothies and soups and grain bowls.
If you don’t edit your order and just keep the default settings, you’ll receive a rotating menu each week.
What quality of ingredients does Splendid Spoon use?
Of all the meal delivery services out there, Splendid Spoon has some of the cleanest ingredients you’ll find. None of the meals contain processed carbohydrates such as flour, cane sugar, or corn starch, and you also won’t find nasty ingredients like chemical preservatives, canola oil, soybean oil, or fake meats or cheeses.
What’s in these meals if they don’t contain processed junk? The green split pea soup, for instance, contains green peas, split peas, organic carrots, onions, organic celery, lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, parsley, basil, tarragon, sea salt, and mint. And that’s it.
Some of the other soups on the menu have names like:
- Mexican Tomato Chili
- Moroccan Lentil
- Cauliflower Tikka
- Channa Potato Stew
- Masala Khichri
- Lentil & Kale
- Ikarian Stew
- Chickpea Harissa Tahini
The smoothies are fruit-based with protein from peas and dietary fat from nuts or seeds, which helps stabilize blood glucose and keeps you feeling fuller longer.
Some of the smoothies do have some added sugars in the form of coconut nectar, which has a lower glycemic index than regular table sugar.
The ingredients in the mint chip smoothie, for instance, are: purified water, banana, almond butter, organic coconut nectar, organic cacao nibs, organic baobab powder, organic pea protein, organic swiss chard juice, organic vanilla powder, organic spirulina, organic peppermint, and Himalayan salt.
Some of the other smoothies you can choose from include:
- Mango Guava Smoothie
- Dragonfruit Berry Smoothie
- Blueberry Coconut Smoothie
- Strawberry Goji Smoothie
- Green Matcha Smoothie
- Blackberry Basil Smoothie
- Carrot Ginger Chia Smoothie
- Power Greens Smoothie
Do the meals taste good?
If you like eating a home-cooked meal that contains simple ingredients that are flavored by using a variety of spices instead of processed ingredients, you will probably like the taste of Splendid Spoon meals.
I have so far tried nearly every meal offered by Splendid Spoon, and I found them all to be delicious. Some of my favorites include the Ikarian Stew, Lentil & Kale, Cauliflower Potato Chowder, Beans & Greens, and the Orange Hibiscus Smoothie.
