Summer Smoothies — No Blender Required!


This Summer you can say “goodbye” to your blender when it comes to making delicious and healthy smoothies thanks to the new DOLE Nutrition Plus Fruit & Veggie Shakers POWER Smoothies! These are incredibly easy to prepare and can be found right in the freezer aisle of your local grocery store. Special thanks to the Mom It Forward Blogger Network and a big thank you to DOLE for sponsoring today’s Summer smoothie post!

Summer Smoothies -- No Blender Required!

To make your own smoothie without a blender, you will need a DOLE Nutrition Plus Fruit and Veggie POWER smoothie and your favorite fruit juice. When prepared with juice each smoothie contains less than 200 calories, and is low in fat and trans fat-free. Store the DOLE Nutrition Plus Fruit and Veggie POWER smoothie in your freezer at home until you’re ready to enjoy.

Here’s a quick video of me demonstrating how easy and FUN these are to make!

1. Remove from Freezer

Remove the DOLE Nutrition Plus Fruit and Veggie POWER smoothie from your freezer, and shake to break up any clumps. If larger pieces remain, allow to thaw for 5 minutes, then break up pieces with a spoon.

2. Add Fruit Juice

Add your favorite fruit juice up to the “fill line” marked on the container. Add slightly more juice for a thinner smoothie, or slightly less for a thicker smoothie.

3. Shake It Up

Shake, shake, shake!!! (I had waaaaay too much fun with this part…)

4. Drink It Up

Serve immediately and enjoy!

    You did a great job with the video. How fun!. I like my blender, but there are days when washing it out is just too time intensive…like when I’m rushing out the door.
