Healthy habits for a healthy planet: our first 2021 sustainability update

It's been six months since we last updated you on kencko’s efforts to be a responsible business. So what’s up: did our smoothies get any greener?

Why we love...Vanilla

The second most expensive spice in the world, complex in flavor and warm in scent, vanilla is good for you: so long as you keep it away from its usual playmate, sugar.

Why we love...Turmeric

This precious orange root isn’t just about the gorgeous golden hue - it also packs serious anti-inflammatory properties. Find out why turmeric is one of our star ingredients.

Smoothies - now with added trees

No, it’s not an exotic new limited edition flavor. It’s our holiday season give-back offer: one tree planted for every box you order.

Why we love coconut water

Find out why we added coconut water to our latest smoothie flavor, and meet the people who supply us with juicy, organic coconuts.

Which plant milk should you choose?

Over the last decade, plant-based milks have grown from a niche ingredient to a global market worth $12 billion. That’s great for consumer choice - but navigating the crowded non-dairy shelf can be daunting. Soy, almond, oat, coconut, rice, pea, hemp: which plant milk is right for you?

Why coffee is good for you (and when it’s not)

To coincide with the launch of our first coffee smoothie, limited edition mochas, we explore the pros and cons of our morning caffeine fix.

No more guilt trips: shipping is now carbon-neutral

A quick update from kencko HQ: as of August 2020, our smoothies now come with carbon neutral shipping. Read on to find out more.

Can shelf-stable fruits and vegetables compete with fresh?

If your access to fresh fruits and veggies has been reduced recently, don’t sweat it. There’s enough to worry about without adding fresh veggie FOMO to the list - and you can easily round out your nutritional needs with shelf-stable alternatives.

Our strawberry smoothies are always in season

Meet the farmers: introducing Marcin and Renata, who grow the juicy berries that go into kencko smoothies.

The feelgood deal of the season

Our holiday deal this year is all about giving back: every new customer gets up to $50 to donate to good causes. Here’s the lowdown.

Meet the farmer: hot dates!

We’d like to introduce Slimane, who grows the juiciest organic dates we know. Here, he explains how he does it - and why.
