About

How many new diets have you started but never stuck to? How many times have you declared you will eat healthier but still find yourself snacking on those cookies late at night? Truth is, most of us struggle to follow through on what we know is good for us. So, we asked ourselves, ‘How do we make eating healthy easier?

Smoothies have long been known to provide you with plenty of vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants. Smoothies help with digestion, empower your immune system and give you brain fuel. The problem with making smoothies is they are either way too much work, or too expensive at your local cafe.

We’ve studied how individuals make smoothies:

1) You take a trip to your local supermarket

2) Buy fresh or frozen fruits, vegetables, yogurts, protein powder, etc.

3) Store your newly purchased food in the fridge, taking up valuable real estate and hoping you use it before it spoils

4) Dust off the blender, wash and prep your fruits and vegetables for 10 minutes.

5) Turn on the Blender and hope you don’t wake up the neighbors with all that noise!

6) Spend another 10 minutes carefully cleaning the equipment, including the dangerous blades.

Drinking smoothies is easy, but the prep work before, the cleaning that comes after, and tossing spoiled food away is a nightmare! This is why we created Avazzy, the innovative instant smoothie maker that makes you a smoothie as quickly as you can make a cup of coffee, and does not require any prep work or cleaning!

avazzy is an innovative instant smoothie maker that provides you a smoothie without the prep or cleaning of a blender. It’s so simple and safe, that a child can make themselves a smoothie without worry. It’s powerful, fast, and effortless—with no prep, blender or cleaning required to make a healthy, delicious smoothie for you, your family and/or your office. Avazzy can make you a smoothie as quickly as you can make a cup of coffee!

Why does avazzy require no prep, no blender and no cleaning?

Avazzy is not a blender and does not use blades to make your smoothie. We simply use heat and gravity, which work with our uniquely designed smoothie packets that completely conceals the smoothie, and allows it to move from the packet to your cup, without ever touching the machine. Just toss the packet into your recycle bin when your drink is made.

This means, you can make a smoothie any time of day or night, without worrying about noise, prep work, spoiled food in the fridge or cleaning!

The Avazzy packet:

Avazzy lets you enjoy fresh smoothies at home without the cost and expense of purchasing fruit and vegetables from the supermarket and worrying about it going bad. Each Avazzy packet consist of two recyclable FDA approved 4oz. packets to create an enjoyable 8oz glass within 3-6 minutes - As quickly as you can make a cup of coffee!

To make and distribute our packets to you, we are partnering with cafes and restaurants around the USA to provide you locally sourced and distributed smoothies. Your smoothies will NEVER be made at a facility thousands of miles away!

How does Avazzy produce smoothies instantly?

Our packets are 100% FDA approved and fully recyclable. When you receive your avazzy packets, simply place them in the freezer until ready for usage. When ready to make a smoothie, place the packet into your avazzy and press the button. The machine will apply just enough heat and pressure to defrost the smoothie and place it into your cup.

How do I buy the avazzy packets after the Kickstarter campaign?

You will be able to find packets on our website and in the near future on Amazon. Our insulated shipping boxes keep the temperature under 40 degrees F during shipping to ensure they arrive at your house fresh and ready to enjoy!

1. Take the Avazzy smoothie packet out of freezer and place into Avazzy

2. Push the button and 4 minutes later, enjoy a glass of freshly made smoothie

Yes, it is that simple!

After you insert your smoothie packets, Avazzy's heat plates warm up and slowly thaw the frozen fruit/vegetable blend. While the heat plates thaw the frozen mix, the plates are gently pushed against the packets to ensure optimal heat distribution and pressure to help gravity pull the mix from it's packet. This process typically takes 3-6 minutes. After the smoothie mix has dispensed into your cup or bowl, just give it a quick stir! Pull the empty packets out of avazzy and recycle.

In order to bring you the freshest all natural ingredients, we are partnering with cafes and restaurants around the USA to bring you smoothies made with locally sourced fruits and vegetables, which will be made and distributed to you from those local venues.

Your smoothies will never be made in a warehouse by a huge corporation using not so great ingredients thousands of miles away; they will be made and distributed by local cafes with love by the people that live near you. As a small business, we want to help local economies and small business thrive! With your support, we can achieve amazing results!

Unlike traditional methods of making smoothies that use high powered and extremely loud blenders and specialty blending devices, avazzy uses nothing but heat and gravity to produce a no mess, no fuss, smoothie.

The smoothie mix

All avazzy smoothies are made to order from local cafes and restaurants near your location. We will be offering their local menus on our website so you can order direct from them. All smoothies will be 100% natural, with no GMO or preservatives! They are made in two connected 4 oz. packets, which gives you 8 oz. per glass or bowl. We will be offering many smoothie flavors and boost add-ons! All packets are shipped anywhere in the lower 48 states of the USA. They are shipped in insulated boxes with frozen gel packs that keep the temperature under 40 degrees F to ensure they stay fresh traveling to your house or office.

Balanced Diet 

Include more vegetables and low sugar fruits in your daily routine for optimal health. Also, pay attention to the daily intake. Choose MyPlate - the official dietary guideline in the USA, recommends adults to have around 16 ounces’ of fruits and vegetables every day to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Sustainability

Save water and food waste! Do you know how many gallons of water is used each time you clean a blender? On average, it accounts for around 10-15 US gallons of water for a 10-minute cleaning! Here at avazzy, as the machine requires no cleaning after each use, you are not only saving yourself time and effort, but you’re also helping save water and looking after the environment.

How many times have you gone to the store with good intentions of buying fruit and vegetables, only to have it spoil and rot in your kitchen a few days later? We have all done it. It is estimated that as much as 40 percent of food in the United States today goes uneaten. This not only means that Americans are throwing out the equivalent of $165 billion each year, but also that the uneaten food ends up rotting in landfills as the single largest component of U.S. municipal solid waste where it accounts for a large portion of U.S. methane emissions. Let’s improve sustainability with avazzy frozen smoothie packets!

Eco-friendly materials 

Our 4oz. avazzy smoothie packets are created from FDA approved virgin raw materials in an eco-friendly environment compliant with AQMD standards. And our packets are 100% recyclable!

Patents

As the world's first instant smoothie maker that doesn't use blades, avazzy has several patents pending.

This product is a true team effort that started in 2015. Our intellectual capital is our people. We’re young and old, new and seasoned, creative and practical, dreamers and generalists, topsy-turvy and organized; we’re a melting pot of experience and knowledge that form a brain trust to create incredible products such as Avazzy!

Using this experience, excellent reputation and passion for delivering healthy and convenient food options in the pursuit of healthy living, avazzy was born and we are ready to bring avazzy to you!

Shipping to the lower 48 states is included in the price, so you do not need to pay extra fees for shipping and delivery. Unfortunately, avazzy is not available in international markets or alaska and hawaii (yet!). We are looking for cafe and restaurant partners around the US and are working to provide a large warranty on avazzy. We estimate shipping of avazzy will occur in early 2019.

We are working towards building a partner network of cafes, restaurants, distributors, professional bodies for recycling of plastics and technical support teams to provide amazing service to make avazzy accessible to everyone.

If you are interested in avazzy and own a cafe or restaurant, and would like information on becoming a partner, please email us at social AT avazzysmoothies com for further information.

So, is this a blender?

Absolutely not! Blenders have blades and make a ton of noise. Avazzy uses heat and light pressure to dispense your smoothie from our avazzy packets. Very little noise, no blades, no food prep, and the best part, no cleaning!

Is this a vegetarian or vegan product? What is in the packets?

Yes and no. The benefit of partnering with cafes and restaurants around the country is that we can offer many options, including vegetarian smoothies, vegan smoothies, all natural 100% fruit and vegetables, addon's (such as protein, etc.) and of course, no GMO or preservatives ever! The packets contain pre-made and blended smoothie that you freeze in yoru freezer. We will have a slew of menus for you to browse through on our website.

No Prep? Don't we have to put something into avazzy?

The old way of making smoothies requires you to purchase, prep and clean all of your ingredients. With Avazzy, you insert the avazzy smoothie packet and press a button. That is it!

How is there no cleanup?

After the smoothie has dispensed into your cup, you simply pull the 100% recyclable packet out and recycle it. That's it! Avazzy is easy peasy!

Can avazzy fit on my kitchen counter?

Yes! Avazzy is just under 17 inches tall, which means it'll fit on most standard American countertops and can be slid under the cabinets. The standard distance between the top of a kitchen counter and the bottom of the wall cabinets above it is 18 inches.

(not to scale)

What type of glassware can be used?

Any standard tall kitchen glass will work with Avazzy. We designed our avazzy packets to work with your average tall kitchen glass that has a 3.25" opening or wider. Avazzy will also work with some shaker bottles, water bottles with wide openings, and small bowls.

How many packets come with my Kickstarter order?

After receiving your avazzy, you will be able to purchase packets on our website. Due to the cost of shipping frozen produce, we will be including four 4oz packets (flavors to be announced) after hitting our stretch goal of $429k. If we do not hit our stretch goal, we will not be including smoothie packets.

Can I purchase avazzy packets at the supermarket?

At the current time, they will be only available on avazzysmoothies.com. They are made to order from local cafes and restaurants and shipped to your house. We are working on partnerships to provide additional locally available avazzy products. Stay tuned!

How do i store my avazzy packets?

It is super easy – simply place them flat (laying down) in your freezer until ready for use. Avazzy packets are extremely thin at about 5/8” thick, and take up very little freezer real estate.

How do I discard the avazzy smoothie packet?

Simply remove from avazzy after your healthy drink is made and discard in your recycle bin. The packets are 100% recyclable!

Do I need to clean avazzy?

Avazzy was designed so you do not have to clean it. Every once in a while, you may have a few drips of smoothie on the internal stainless steel panels when removing the packets. If you wish to clean, unplug avazzy, wait until avazzy has cooled down, then simply remove the top of avazzy and clean with a damp cloth.

When can I receive avazzy after I placed my order?

We estimate shipping of avazzy will occur in early 2019. We have manufacturing already in place and are ready to go! You will receive an email from us to confirm and keep you updated on the manufacturing and shipping progress.

I own a cafe or restaurant and would like information on becoming a partner. How do i contact you?

We are always looking to add more partnerships with cafes and restaurants around the USA. Please email us at social@avazzysmoothies.com with your name and number and we will be in touch!

Risks and challenges

From the initial planning stages to prototyping and testing, Avazzy has been our top priority and we're proud of where we are now. At this stage, everything is ready to go. Our product is 100% fully working, functional and designed; materials are sourced and our manufacturers are ready - we’re prepared to go forward with production. Of course, even with a solid plan, there is a potential of schedule risk: it is still possible that an unexpected issue may arise that causes a delay in production or an unforeseen situation with shipping. If anything does come up, rest assured we will make sure to communicate it immediately so you are always in the know.

We will keep you, our backers, updated on the status of our project as it develops with full transparency. We are truly grateful for your support and we can’t wait to get Avazzy to your kitchen! Cheers!
