Hi! I'm Shelby, and I'm just a gal who really, REALLY enjoys smoothies. If I don't have one in the morning for breakfast, it's a bad day. I also happen to live in Los Angeles, so I've made it my mission/hobby to try every single celebrity smoothie at Erewhon.
NGL, it looks pretty darn good (I'm absolutely LOVING the spooky fall vibes).
So, just like with all the others, I bee-bopped on down to my local Erewhon and went straight to the tonic bar. The Poosh smoothie was proudly on display:
And it did indeed cost 18 smackaroos:
I got into the store pretty early, so luckily, I didn't have to wait too long for my smoothie. Here's what she looked like fresh out of the blender:
I didn't waste any time in taking a sip, and my first impression was that it was VERY creamy and banana-forward. I waited for more flavors/tastes to pop up, but honestly, none really did. It mostly just tasted like bananas and cream.
I tried mixing up the smoothie with my straw to see if I could get anything else, but it still tasted pretty much the same throughout my entire drinking experience. It didn't taste BAD, per se, but it was definitely missing that OOMPH that'd have me barreling back to Erewhon for more. IMO, just a little plain, but still pleasant. I drank the whole thing, though.
Even though Kourtney's Poosh smoothie wasn't my absolute fave, I still wanted to try my hand at making it at home, a.) to see if that would be any cheaper, and b.) to find out of it's possible to recreate it for anyone who might want to try it but doesn't live near an Erewhon (or who doesn't want to spend almost $20 on a drink. I see you and I feel you!!!).
These are all the ingredients I bought. While I hoped that making the smoothie at home would be cheaper, my grocery bill was a whopping $94.87!!! I think what did me in was the Four Sigmatic protein powder, which, to be fair, came in a giant tub and can be used for other things. In terms of the other ingredients, I bought enough to probably make 4-5 smoothies, so the cost-per-smoothie would be about $18 (aka, the same as if you were to buy it at Erewhon, lol).
Erewhon famously doesn't provide exact amounts for its smoothie recipes, so I decided to use my best judgement. Here's the recipe I landed on:
—1/2 cup Harmless Harvest Organic Coconut Water
—4.4 oz container of Harmless Harvest Vanilla Flavored Dairy-Free Coconut Yogurt Alternative
—1/2 cup MALK Almond Milk
—1 tbsp. Four Sigmatic Sweet Vanilla Protein Powder
—1 tsp. Charcoal
—1 tbsp. Maple Syrup
—2 tsp. Cacao Powder
—1/2 cup Blueberries
—Zuma Valley Coconut Cream to taste
