DOLE Fruit Smoothies and Frozen Single Cups Review and Giveaway

DOLE’s newest products are the perfect on the go treats.  They sent me coupons to use for their new Frozen Fruit Single-serve Cups and Fruit Smoothie Shakers.  Both are available in the frozen foods section of your grocery store.  The Frozen Fruit Single-serve Cups come in Blueberry, Strawberry, and Pineapple.  The Fruit Smoothie Shakers varieties are Strawberry Banana, Strawberry, and Mixed Berry.

The frozen fruit cups are great snacks, and only 50 calories or less.  There are no added preservatives or added sugars.  The smoothie’s are only 180-190 calories per serving, with the juice added.  You get to pick which juice you add to the bottle.  I have been using orange juice.

I made the Mixed Berry Fruit Smoothie Shaker first, and wasn’t sure if I was making the right decision in using orange juice with it.  I was afraid the orange juice would overpower the Mixed Berry flavor.  It didn’t.  These smoothies are quick and easy to make up.  You have to loosen up the contents first, then add your juice.  After that, you just shake the bottle to mix everything up.  The result is a great smoothie that tastes just like it would if you had made one from scratch in a blender.

I enjoyed the single serving fruit cups, too.  I ate them alone, and as a topping for a dessert.  Either way is great.  I love that you can take these out of your freezer and let them thaw before eating, or pop them into the microwave for a quick thaw.

The DOLE Fruit Smoothie Shakers and the Frozen Single Serving Cups are refreshing and healthy treats for the summer.  My daughter wanted me to make sure I wrote her response to the Mixed Berry Fruit Smoothie Shaker as being “Delicious.”  My favorite was the strawberry.  You can try them for yourself, and decide which is your favorite.  They are available in the stores now.
