A: You better believe it. All of our smoothie cubes are made with 100% USDA organic fruits, vegetables, superfoods and probiotics. There have been widespread reports of people saying they have more energy, less brain fog and bloating, and when used as a meal replacement, lose weight.
What is a superfood?
Q: What is a superfood?
A: They’re everywhere and sound awesome, but what the heck? We can help you out.

Our cubes are packed with them, which help to keep you super healthy!
What are probiotics doing in the smoothie cubes?
Q: What are probiotics doing in the smoothie cubes?
A: Your digestive system is a complex ecosystem of bacteria--the good, the bad, and the really bad. Maintaining the balance in this “inner garden” of gut flora is essential for avoiding symptoms like bloating, cramps, diarrhea, constipation, or abdominal pain. A low-glycemic, whole-foods diet filled with healthy proteins, fats, fiber, and probiotics can improve gut health significantly. There are 5 billion CFU’s of high-quality probiotics per serving of Live Pure Superfood Smoothie Cubes to help keep everything running smoothly.

No worries though, just leave some cubes out on the counter for about 20 minutes and blend away. Otherwise, just store your cubes in the freezer and enjoy the next day.
