There are always a couple months out of the year when I crave smoothies all day long—not because I simply love the taste of blended fruits, but because I’m too hot to snack on anything else (and eating ice cream in the middle of the day tends to be frowned upon). However, the thought of preparing ingredients, worrying about waking my roommate when I’m puréeing ice first thing in the morning, and washing the blender after every use is often enough to deter me from making my own frozen treats.

Enter Sweet Nothings, a brand that makes perfectly portioned, ready-to-eat smoothie cups that are ideal for a light breakfast, refreshing mid-day snack, or healthier dessert (no blender necessary). It offers five delicious, plant-based flavors, like coffee, chocolate, and peanut butter, all packed with organic fruit, nuts, and seeds.

Each cup lists the straightforward ingredients right on the label so you know exactly what you’re eating. For instance, the strawberry smoothie cup includes organic strawberries, bananas, cashews, chia seeds, flax seeds, and dates—that’s it! You won’t find any added sugar, preservatives, or artificial colors.

The best part? You can order the smoothie cups online and get them delivered right to your doorstep. The flavors are available in a 15-cup variety pack featuring three portions of each flavor for $60 (that comes about to about $4 a cup). Or, you can order a 12-cup pack of a single flavor for $48. 

No matter which option you choose, you can store the stash of pre-made smoothies in your freezer to eat whenever the mood strikes. The little cups make a refreshing snack any time of day. Trust me, I’ve eaten them for a quick breakfast, as a post-workout snack, and in place of ice cream for dessert, and they always hit the spot.
