WHAT IS A PLANTSHAKE

A plantshake is your daily nutritional armour. Packed with highly absorbable nutrients, it’s a delicious daily smoothie that gives you the foundations of a healthy diet with no effort.

Our freeze drying technique means that you get all the taste, texture & nutrition of a smoothie you made in your blender, with none of the peeling, chopping or blending. 

Just add a pouch to water in the FOGAMATIC & whizz. Anytime, anywhere. 

HOW DO I MAKE THEM?

Fill your FOGAMATIC with about 250ml of water (or your fave milk) then add the shake of choice. Whizz to revive the fruit & enjoy.

HOW DO I CHANGE MY ORDER?

Subscriptions are meant to make your life easier, not harder so we’re trying to make it as easy as we can to make changes.

We’ll contact you 3 days before your subscription is due to renew. You can log in to your account, reply to the email, text or whatsapp us to make any changes you need. We can change, pause or cancel your order any time before 5pm on the day before the renewal. 

HOW DO I CONTACT YOU?

We’re people. You can get us in all the ways you might speak to your friends.

We’re always available between Monday – Friday 9-5, but we’ll do our best to come back to you as soon as possible outside these hours.

WHAT DO I DO WITH THE PACKAGING?

Our boxes & paperwork are fully recyclable. The pouches are technically recyclable, but it’s hard so unfortunately most authorities won’t. Instead, you can send back your used pouches to us and we recycle with specialists.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

£2.20 – £2.70 per smoothie depending on how often you order. That’s less than a flat white and way more nutritious!

CAN I GIVE THIS AS A GIFT?

You’re in luck. Plantshakes make an excellent gift. After all, who wouldn’t want the gift of health!

Starter kits are a great option – they get the whole system to kick start their FOGA journey. Don’t worry – we don’t put any price details in the box. 

Just drop us a message if you have any special requests, we’re happy to help.

HOW LONG DOES DELIVERY TAKE?

We endeavour to ship orders placed before 12pm on the same working day, otherwise it will be the next working day.

We ship with the Royal Mail using a Tracked 24 or Tracked 48 service. While parcels normally arrive within this 24 / 48 hour window, it can take a little longer, but you’ll be able to keep up with it using the tracking provided.

IS IT JUST DEHYDRATED FRUIT?

No, we use a different process called freeze drying which takes out the water of flash-frozen plants while retaining all the nutrition, the cellular structure, taste and colour. It’s what NASA use to feed the astronauts!

IS IT AS HEALTHY AS FRESH?

Absolutely. Freeze drying locks in all the nutrition from the moment our plants are frozen – shortly after being picked. Click below to learn more – there’s academic studies and everything. 

IS IT GLUTEN FREE?

We do not handle any gluten containing ingredients on our premises and the ingredients we use are all gluten free but we are not yet certified gluten free. 

DOES IT COUNT TOWARDS MY FIVE A DAY?

A portion of fruit & veg is 80g. Our pouches have the equivalent of about 150g of plants, so yes – each is about 2 of your 5 a day.

WHAT DO THEY TASTE LIKE?

They are delicious, in my humble opinion! 

Compared with a ready to drink smoothie, you’ll find plantshakes less sweet, because we don’t use the juices that they use. Freeze drying retains all the flavour and texture, so you shouldn’t know the difference between something you’d make yourself. 

We worked hard to make a real range of delicious flavours so you don’t get bored and have a real diversity of plants in your diet.

DO YOU HAVE ANY WITHOUT BANANA?

We have one recipe without banana – our Beetroot & Berries Protein. We’re working on creating more, but banana helps to make it thick and delicious.

HOW MANY CALORIES?

They are about 100 calories when made with water, they vary in a range from about 90 – 125. Make them with milk (whichever you like) for a more filling snack with a few more calories. 

Full nutritional info on recipe each is available below.
