Splendid Spoon Favorites
Wellness Shots! The flavor punches your tastebuds like your least favorite medicine used to, but they’re quick and energizing. If you’re someone who’s constantly busy, these boosts will help keep you going strong the whole day through.
Mango Guava and Blueberry Coconut Smoothies! I’m not normally a fan of coconut, but in this smoothie it was delicious. The use of banana in the Mango Guava smoothie was also a great and very sweet combination.
Cuban Black Bean and Vegetable Bolognese Bowls! These two packed the most flavor for me, which was especially surprising in terms of the Vegetable Bolognese bowl. No meat? Apparently no problem for Splendid Spoon!
Red Curry and Kale Pesto Noodles! Tasty, filling noodle bowls that are easy to make. Perfect on a cool fall day or winter night.
Splendid Spoon Passes
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.
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.
Splendid Spoon Reviews: New Noodles!
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 2-3 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-5Pack option. Each bowl is priced at $16.00 for a total of $80.00 for the five-day deal. Here’s the breakdown of my order.
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, disease-resistant properties from the tomato, and protein from the use of nutritional yeast, this bowl’s textures and flavors were a delight to experience.
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 a perfect example of what good digestion needs to sustain its processes. 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 Reviews: Bottom Line
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!
