Recently I’ve been looking for a healthy option to beat the afternoon slump I often get whilst working from home and dealing with a three year old.
When I’m at the office, I take all my snacks for the day with me, there’s nothing else and I try not to take money so I don’t resort to a vending machine; however, being at home surrounded by all the chocolate and crisps we have, it’s not as easy to look the other way!
I came across a company that said they can help with my afternoon energy slump and I was quite frankly, willing to try anything! Swisse me make smoothies, shots (not those ones) and jelly sticks to get your energy back and give you a healthy alternative to traditional snacks. These appealed to me as I do like a smoothie, but I can never be bothered to get everything to make them plus it would mean buying yet another smoothie maker that would get used once and then exiled to a cupboard until the end of time (or when I cleared it out in about three years). The smoothies come pre-made and packed easily for your convenience to just pick the one you want next. They do gluten-free, vegan and dairy-free options too so they cater for pretty much everyone. I got these on an offer, and I have to say, I’m really glad I tried them.
Please be aware that these are not advertised or sold as slimming, for a fad diet or have any shitty fake medical claims. They are purely smoothies designed with vitamins and minerals, to give you a boost; they have morning blends, post-workout blends and the normal energy boost.
I love the packaging and the cute pictures they have on the boxes and the smoothies; it’s something a little different and makes it seem more friendly!
Inside each box, there are eight pouches – you just pick the one you want, shake and go! Craig wanted to get in on the action and picked one to try, but he decided these weren’t for him which is fine by me as they are mine, not his! I picked a mango one, which was utterly divine, but please heed my words, do not decide to have one at 10pm at night. I did indeed have an energy boost and didn’t get to sleep until 1am!
I am always wary of trying new things like this, especially without my own recommendations but this was a gamble that paid off.
I’ll definitely be getting these again, maybe not as the bundles as I think they’ll be a few I wouldn’t necessarily get again (coffee, I’m looking at you), and I’ll be able to pick the ones I want. First impressions were great, and they’ve been really friendly on social media too, which is always a bonus!
