Last summer I discovered the Dole Fruit Smoothie Shakers. It was LOVE….. at first sip.
The Fruit Smoothies come in 4 flavors: Strawberry, Strawberry Banana, Mixed Berry & Peach Mango. Each one is delicious when mixed with either pineapple, apple or orange juice.
A few weeks ago while food shopping, I came across a new smoothie from Dole – Nutrition Plus Fruit & Veggie Shakers Power Smoothies.
These shakers are made with all natural fruit, veggies, real Greek yogurt and popular boosts. They are a fun way to add healthy fruit and veggies to your diet.
Yellow Power – Pineapple Mango with Sweet Potato & Carrot
Blue Power – Blueberry Banana with Red Beet
Red Power – Strawberry Raspberry with Red Beet & Purple Carrot
I’ve only been able to find two of these flavors but I am on the hunt to find the Blue Power as well.
Each serving when prepared with juice is under 200 calories, low in fat and trans fat-free. They contain Pre & Probiotics (live and active cultures), 100% DV of vitamin C, are a good source of vitamins A & E and are nutritionally fortified with an extra boost of protein. The best part? Tastes like fruit, not veggies!
I was a little nervous to try these out because I’m not big on vegetables but they taste great and are an excellent way to make sure you get some extra veggies in during your day.
Go out & pick one up! 🙂
I’ve been seeing the Dole Fruit Smoothie Shakers in the grocery store lately and have been so interested in trying them so I picked up a few last week.
1 word — AMAZING.
I love the whole no blender concept!
There are currently 4 flavors: Mixed Berry, Peach Mango, Strawberry & Strawberry Banana. Each serving prepared with 7 oz of juice is under 200 calories and they have a ton of other benefits. They are made with all natural fruit, low in fat, rich in dietary fiber, and are a great source of calcium and Vitamin C.
Remove your Dole shaker from the freezer, when you open the lid you will see colorful frozen fruit and yogurt pieces. It’s important to remember to let it sit out for a little so the frozen pieces can defrost. If not – you will get clumps of frozen fruit and yogurt in your smoothie (yuck!) Once defrosted, pour your juice of choice up to the Fill Zone. Close the lid and shake, shake, shake for about 45 seconds. That’s it – super easy and quick and you have a delicious smoothie at hand. This is perfect for mornings when you are on the go or just need an afternoon pick me up. I love that with the 4 flavors you really have so many varieties of smoothies just by different juices. They can be purchased at your local grocery market and retail for about $2.99 each but they always have a sale on them so I usually get them for about $1.50 each.
Have you tried the Smoothie Shakers ? If so – what do you think about them?
