What We Liked
Two servings per smoothie, soup, and bowl. Each bottle is 16 oz and absolutely packed with health-boosting ingredients. I was able to drink each between two meals. Plus, two servings per soup and bowl each equally as filling.
Easy Directions. The bowls and soups were easy to open and heat up with clear directions for both reheating options.
Menu Transparency. Splendid Spoon allows you to browse their menu before setting up an account and includes the ingredients, nutrition facts, and health benefits of specific components of each of their products.
Nut Allergies. If you have allergies be sure to read the ingredients. Some products do contain tree nuts.
Some plans are expensive – we suggest ordering a plan with at least breakfast and lunch to save.
How much does Splendid Spoon cost?
Splendid Spoon’s subscription plan starts at $9 per meal and operates on a weekly basis, but if you’d like some time between each package, adjusting the delivery frequency to every other week or once a month is an option! There are four plans to choose from. All plans ship free!

Splendid Spoon Unboxing by MealFinds
Over the past several years we have tried almost every smoothie, bowl, noodle, and shot that Splendid Spoon offers. Some we loved, some were just ok, and some we wouldn’t order again. Everyone has different tastes and we encourage you to try an assortment as you may be surprised (we were!). Get $60 OFF >>
Splendid Spoon Reviews: Shot, Smoothie, and Bowl Favorites
Smoothies: Mango Guava, Blueberry Coconut, and Orange Hibiscus. We love the Mango Guava smoothie. The combination of tropical fruit creates a zingy vibrant smoothie. The Blueberry Coconut Smoothie was also a favorite. I’m not normally a fan of coconut, but in this smoothie it was delicious. A close third was the low sugar Orange Hibiscus. The orange in this smoothie was the star with the floral notes of hibiscus and hints of banana.
Bowls: Cuban Black Bean and Vegetable Bolognese Bowls. These bowls packed the most flavor and were all very filling. We especially loved the Vegetable Bolognese as it had all of the Italian spices and tomato flavor you would expect, but without the meat.
Wellness Shots: We enjoyed the taste of all three wellness shots – Digestion, Detox, and Wellness. Be warned that the flavor punches your tastebuds and is very strong! The Wellness Shot has a strong ginger taste, the Digestion Shot has a strong ginger taste and cayenne pepper kick, and the Detox Shot is very sweet, don’t let the green color fool you into thinking that it’s going to taste like grass because it doesn’t.
Splendid Spoon Reviews: Shot, Smoothie, and Bowl Passes
Smoothies: Dragon Fruit and Mint Chip Smoothies- Out of all the smoothies I ordered these were the two I was most excited about, but the mint-coconut and dragon fruit-avocado flavor combinations were just too strong in the mix for me.
Bowls: Kabocha Congee Soup- Originally a rice pudding, the stew variation of this dish had an odd consistency between the squash and the pumpkin seeds that made it hard to enjoy.
New to the Splendid Spoon menu are their low sodium, gluten-free, plant-based noodles. Served in microwavable, tightly sealed containers these meals take just 3-4 minutes to warm up for a nice relaxing lunch or dinner. Out of the six delicious options I was able to try five through Splendid Spoon’s Noodles-5 Pack option. Splendid Spoon no longer has the noodle-pack, but you can order the Noodle Bowls in the Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner plan. Get $60 OFF >>
FAVORITE! Red Curry Noodles: Coconut milk, curry, and sweet potato came together to balance this bowl’s immunity-boosting effects and sharp flavor. The noodles were soft and warm under the heat of the sauce and my only complaint on this one is that there wasn’t more of it!
FAVORITE! Kale Pesto Noodles: I love pesto! I loved this dish! Packed with antioxidants from the kale, cancer-fighting properties from the tomato, and all of the essential amino acids from the nutritional yeast, this bowl’s textures and flavors were a delight to experience.
FAVORITE! Vegan Meatballs & Marinara: We really enjoyed this noodle bowl. It was both very flavorful and filling and the vegetable meatballs, while not the same as meat, still tasted great.
Creamy Mushroom & Spinach Noodles: I wasn’t sure if I would like this new noodle bowl that uses coconut milk and cashews to get the creamy texture, but I really enjoyed it. You definitely taste the spinach and mushrooms but combined with the creamy sauce they are not overpowering or bitter. This noodle dish, like the others, was very filling.
Green Curry Noodles: Adopting a different approach this bowl’s lemongrass curry finds its main support from galangal, lime, and broccoli. Tossed together this noodle dish is packed with fiber, vitamins, and minerals shown to support digestive health. While I still prefer the Red Curry, getting a significant bite of my daily fiber in the green was a great benefit to obtain in this bowl.
Creamy Butternut Squash Noodles: Another broccoli dish means more digestive health assistance! I really enjoy creative approaches to getting my daily fiber in and this bowl is just another recipe on that list. The influence of the turmeric on the butternut squash sauce was less potent than I was expecting, but all around still managed to taste delicious.
Tangy Ginger Noodles: This bowl had the most flavor for me. Carrots, red peppers, and almonds in a noodle dish may sound like a recipe for disaster, but as Splendid Spoon says, it’s “bright and zesty”. And hey, if I can give my eyes a boost while loading myself up with antioxidants, why not?
Splendid Spoon delivers vegan, gluten-free, GMO-free, ready-to-eat meals designed to change the way to think about food. These nutrient-dense plant-based meals are designed to keep you full, energized, and eating healthy throughout the day.
Splendid Spoon is one of the most filling prepared meal services I’ve tried! For the most part, the flavors were really balanced throughout the bowls, soups, and smoothies which can be difficult considering how many ingredients are packed into each product. The bowls by far were my favorite Splendid Spoon category. Easy to prepare with very little cleanup involved afterward. I heated mine up for the full four minutes (2-4 is the suggested time) and had no issues transferring the container from the microwave to the table. Their packaging is seriously the most durable I’ve ever interacted with, and dishwasher safe too! The smoothies complemented everything nicely as well. Between the two over the course of this past week, I can say I’ve never snacked less!
We do want to caution that some Splendid Spoon meals contain nuts and for those with allergies please read the ingredients thoroughly before ordering. Compared to other prepared meal services, the cost of Splendid Spoon is in the mid-to-high range. If you are just ordering smoothies or lunches, they are more expensive than most, but the more you order the lower your cost per meal. We encourage you to stock up and save! Get $60 OFF >>
