Kencko Reviews

Kencko means “health” in Japan, the country with the longest lifespan, and they are on a mission to help people in the US eat healthy diets and reach the federal recommended five cups of fruits and veggies a day with their instant smoothies.  Did you know that only 1 in 10 US adults reach the recommended 5 servings each day?  I know that I sometimes have a hard time reaching this seemingly simple goal.

Kencko’s 100% organic single-serve smoothies are filled with the equivalent of 2 cups of fruit and vegetables giving you all of the nutritional benefits, like vitamins and fiber, from fresh produce in an easy and portable smoothie with no added sugar or chemicals.  They are also free of gluten and common allergens and easy to make (no blender required).  Simply mix the smoothie powder into water or your favorite milk for a quick and healthy breakfast, snack, or afternoon drink.  Plus, these smoothie-packet-miracles are shelf-stable minimizing food waste and the plastic packaging is compostable minimizing regular waste.  A win for you and the environment!

Sounds too good to be true?  We tried these smoothies for 20 days and share all of the details below in our Kencko flavor reviews.

Kencko Review: Getting Started


Getting started with Kencko is super easy.  Simply select the number of smoothies you would like to order as well as your desired frequency, one-time, or subscribe for auto-delivery every 2 weeks or 4 weeks.  The more you order, the lower the price per smoothie.  Remember, these smoothies are shelf-stable so you don’t have to worry about them going bad.  We say stock up and save!

  • 7 smoothie packs – $5.29 per smoothie or $37.03 per delivery + free shipping
  • 20 smoothie packs – $2.95 per smoothie or $59 per delivery + free shipping
  • 60 smoothie packs – $2.49 per smoothie or $149.40 per delivery + free shipping


With your first order you will receive a free shaker bottle (a $9.90 value).  This bottle is not only easy to use, but it also comes apart so that you can easily clean it, and it’s dishwasher safe.  Score!

Kencko Flavor Reviews


Next, you select your flavors.  This is the fun part!  Each of the twelve functional flavors, named after colors, are packed with essential nutrients from organic fruits, vegetables, and spices.  Select “greens” for an energy surge, “reds” for skin health, or “yellows” for immune support.  We recommend trying as many as you can, even the flavors that you think you might not like because we were pleasantly surprised.

How does Kencko get 2 servings of fruit and veggies in each packet while retaining the healthy stuff?  We are glad you asked.  All of the organic fruits and veggies are flash-frozen to retain the vitamins, minerals, fiber, carbohydrates, and protein, then slow-dried to remove water and to preserve taste and color, and finally blended in small batches along with spices to create the healthy smoothie flavors you see below.



Kencko Reviews – We loved:

  • Purples, Reds, and Crimsons:  I love berries and all three of these smoothies are packed with a wonderful berry blend and fruity taste.  A nice surprise was the ginger in the “reds” and the cinnamon in the “crimsons”.  We will definitely order these again!


Kencko Reviews – Some surprises:

  • Golds: One of the first ingredients in the “golds” is cacao, i.e. chocolate, and we couldn’t believe how chocolatey this smoothie tasted.  Definitely save this one for an after-dinner treat!
  • Scarlets: The “scarlets” is a fun combination of tomato, apple, banana, spinach, dates, chia seeds, cayenne pepper, and kombucha.  We thought it tasted like a healthy alcohol-free bloody mary and would make a great addition to any Sunday brunch.
  • Greens:  As the name or color implies, the “greens” are filled with green veggies like spinach and kale.  I’m not a huge fan of the veggie-packed green smoothies (am I the only one who doesn’t like the taste of grass?), but with the addition of kiwi, pineapple, apple, banana, and ginger it was one of our favorites.  No grassy taste at all.

Kencko Review: Unboxing

Want to know what your Kencko delivery will look like when it arrives?  Check out the unboxing video below.


Make a delicious Kencko smoothie in less than 1 minute. (We used scissors and realized later that each packet includes a little tear making it easy to open without scissors.   Amazing!)

Kencko Reviews: Bottom Line

After 20 days of Kencko smoothies, I am definitely a believer.  These smoothies make it so easy to get organic, healthy, all-natural fruits and veggies every day.  They can be made in under 1 min, stored in your kitchen cabinet because they are shelf-stable, and clean up is a breeze with the dishwasher safe shaker bottle.  They also taste fantastic and at just $2.49 per smoothie they are less expensive than many of the smoothie alternatives on the market (or your morning cup of coffee).  I’m looking forward to trying the new “aquamarines” and “ambers” in my next box.  Which flavor are you excited to try?
