Busy summer days call for simple smoothie recipes.

Busy summer ahead? No problem! Energize this season with colorful, nutrient-dense smoothie drinks. Simple smoothies are perfect for on-the-go adventuring and chilling out in the AC alike—aka, they’re the key to a cool summer. And with the right products, you can effortlessly create these summer sippers with or without a blender. You heard that right—no blender necessary! For more refreshing, summer drink ideas, check out these blender-free smoothie recipes featuring Evive smoothie cubes.

Evive Smoothie Cubes

Get ready to maximize the summer experience this year! We’re out here making memories. And we’re fueling our summer fun with blender-free smoothies made with Evive smoothie cubes. These convenient smoothie starters make getting outside a breeze! And they can be enjoyed en route to your fave summer activities. Picture a frosty smoothie riding shotgun on the way to the beach or fueling your long summer hike. All you need is a cup with a lid, your choice of liquid, and your favorite tray of Evive smoothie cubes. Just add the cubes to your drink of choice, cover, and shake vigorously. Allow the smoothie to sit for a few minutes to fully combine. Add a straw, and you’re on the way to reap some summertime fun! And the best part is, there are so many ways to enjoy these. Here are our five favorite blender-free smoothie combinations.

Five Blender-Free Smoothie Combinations:

  1. Viva La Dragon Fruit: Combine Evive’s bright pink Viva smoothie cubes with creamy cashew milk for an antioxidant-packed morning drink.
  2. Sapphire Lemonade: We love mixing Sapphire smoothie cubes with fresh-squeezed lemonade for a refreshing poolside sipper.
  3. Protein Passion: For a protein-rich smoothie on the go, combine the Passion Mango smoothie cubes with soy milk. It’s a beach vacation in a jar!
  4. Pure Green Tea: For a fun take on a caffeinated green smoothie, add Pure smoothie cubes to a glass of unsweetened iced tea. You will love this creamy beverage.
  5. Frozen Aztec Cocoa: This one is giving frozen hot cocoa vibes. Add the Aztec cubes to a cup of almond milk, shake, and enjoy!


Creamy Smoothie Bowls

Just because you don’t need a blender, doesn’t mean you can’t use one! Evive smoothie cubes make some of the most creamy smoothie bowls and IG-worthy sorbets around. These bowls are perfect for a quick breakfast or midday cool-down snack. We’re loving combinations like Samurai, Evive’s bestselling berry smoothie cubes paired with frozen banana chunks and almond milk. Foodies can get creative by layering flavors and vibrant colors—hello Superman-inspired nice cream. And don’t forget the toppings! Think fruit cut into fun shapes, granola, chopped nuts, seeds, and even vegan-friendly sprinkles. The possibilities are endless.

During her studies to become a registered dietitian, Anja—a longtime vegetarian—transitioned to a vegan diet. Living in Kalamazoo, Michigan at the time (Go Broncos!), she met Maggie and Tammie through VegOut Kalamazoo (one of VegOut’s first focus cities) and began collaborating with the duo. When she’s not writing about new vegan eats, practicing as a pediatric clinical dietitian, and virtually coaching fellow plant-based eaters, you can find her creating veg-centric recipes, trying new cruelty-free products, and spending time with her partner Addison and cat Kovu.
