kencko is an instant fruit and vegetable smoothie. Fresh, whole produce is flash-frozen and
slow-dried to capture all its nutrients, fiber, color and flavor in a convenient powder. Each
smoothie contains ~85 calories, and gives the same nutritional benefits as 2 cups of fresh produce.
Simply mix with water or your favorite milk for a quick, healthy boost—wherever you are.
How do I use kencko?
Liquid goes in first (cold water or your favorite milk), add the contents of one packet, twist on
the neck and bottle cap, and shake well for about a minute.
How much kencko should I drink, and when?
Enjoy one kencko a day, anytime, to get two of your recommended five daily servings of fruits and
vegetables. We find most people drink kencko at least once a day, either in the morning or as a
quick and healthy pick-me-up later in the day.

What should I mix kencko with?
Great question. Most kencko flavors are great with chilled water, but we think some are even better with plant milk.

Can I try a sample?
We don't offer samples, but you're welcome to visit one of our store locations
Can I prepare kencko in advance?
Yes, but make sure you store your smoothie in the fridge. Unrefrigerated or room temperature smoothies may begin to oxidize and ferment in the bottle.
How do I clean and care for my bottle?
The bottle should be cleaned regularly with warm soapy water. If you’re not washing your kencko bottle right away, give it a quick rinse under the faucet and remove the lid before you store it or stack it in the sink or dishwasher. All that healthy natural fiber in our smoothies can leave tiny little bits behind, and they wash off more easily while they’re still wet.
How many portions of fruit and/or vegetables is in one smoothie?
Each smoothie has at least two portions of fruit and/or vegetables—the equivalent of two cups of fresh produce.
What is five-a-day?
Studies have shown that fruit and vegetables start to protect your health in a significant way when you eat at least five portions a day—that is five cup-sized servings. As many as 9 out of 10 people in the US don’t reach this recommended daily minimum.

Why did you switch from recyclable to compostable plastics?
Recyclable materials are theoretically good insofar as they are actually recycled. The hard truth is that only 9% of the world's plastic ever produced has been recycled—while the lion's share languishes in landfills and our oceans. What's more, for 2 decades the US has relied heavily on China to recycle its plastic waste; with that arrangement now at an end, recycling is in crisis.
We know that compostables are not a perfect solution. The plant-based packaging material we've chosen to use is certified for industrial composting, meaning that it biodegrades within 90 days in a suitable facility. Because such facilities are not yet commonplace, we accept that a proportion of our packaging will end up where it always has - in landfill. But what's important to us is that, unlike conventional plastics, the new material will not create harmful microplastic particles when it breaks down or toxic fumes when it is incinerated. And while conventional plastic takes more than 400 years to degrade, compostable plastic takes a fraction of that—around 20 to 25 years. Moreover, it's made from renewable raw materials, mainly cellulose from plant fibers - not from fossil fuels.
What should I do with the empty packets?
Our clear, single-use smoothie packets are made from a plant-based compostable film. They biodegrade within 90 days in a suitable facility. If your local area doesn’t have composting facilities yet, add them to general waste rather than to plastic recycling.
