What’s better than a fruit smoothie? A fruit and veggie smoothie with Greek yogurt for added protein. This mango, carrot & ginger smoothie is packed with nutrients . Plus, you don’t have to wait for everything to be in season because the fruit and veggies are available right from the freezer section of the supermarket.
When I first moved the U.S., I became close with someone who is still a very good friend to this day, her name is Melanie. What’s amazing is that we actually became and remained friends because we are just so opposite. Not only did we grow up on different sides of the world and with that comes with cultural differences and habits, our personalities could not be more different. I’m shy and consider myself to have a good (British) sense of humor, Melanie is very outgoing and tries to be funny (bless her heart), but it doesn’t quite happen. It’s OK, she’ll be reading this and she will agree. As far as our eating habits, complete polar opposites. I workout and eat clean everyday, she… well, does not let’s just say.
When I mentioned to Melanie that I was going to be making a smoothie, she wrinkled her nose at the thought of something good for you. I told her that if I can get her to like my smoothie, she has to buy me dinner. And that is how and why my smoothie was born. The new Best Blends Campaign by Dole® introduces their three new frozen fruit & veggies smoothie blends, Fruit & Greens, Mango Carrot and Orange Medley. Dole® Fruit & Veggie blends help get your smoothie started and make it easy to whip up a healthy snack. Mango and carrot blends make a delicious combo and are all natural. Vitamins A & C as well as fiber are all packed into them. So why not drink your nutrients? Just like my friend and I, you would think that fruit and vegetables would not get along, trust me, they do and they do very well in my smoothie. This mango, carrot & ginger smoothie has become my new pre and post workout snack and to make my life easier, Dole® have partnered up with NutriBullet which is perfect for making just the right amount of smoothie for me. Everything goes into the NutriBullet and made light work of the frozen fruit & veggies in seconds.
You’re probably wondering what Melanie thought of the smoothie. Let’s just say, we have a dinner date this weekend and Melanie has a new healthy snack. I think it was the cuteness of my bunny straws that helped seal the deal.
