Do you ever make a smoothie and think “this will make an awesome frozen treat!”, but then freezing it doesn’t always work out so well?
This has happened to me on occasion, but I’ve got a few new smoothies in the freezer.
J & J Snack Foods sent me some of their new Whole Fruit Smoothie cups. I find them to be the perfect frozen treat, in that when you stick your spoon in, you can scrape a smooth layer out, without hard chunks. Think of it as halfway between ice cream and Italian ice.
These smoothies are ready-to-go. You can eat them as a frozen treat, or microwave them for 20 seconds for a drinkable treat. Carter chose to let his sit out for a few minutes (it’s still in the 80s around here most days), but Martin, Corice, and I enjoyed ours frozen.
Each one is slightly sweet and just a little creamy. The mixed berry is my favorite, with a good berry flavor. It was very satisfying and helped curb a raging sweet tooth one day.
The strawberry banana really accentuates the banana flavor (though you still taste the strawberries. The pineapple mango is the only one that I would actually say has chunks of fruit. The other two are more fully smooth.
Whole Fruit Smoothies taste great and are a convenient size. Carter and Corice pretty much thought they were getting ice cream. Thankfully, each 4 oz cup is only 100 calories. It’s a good size for portion control, too.
As long as you only eat one, that is. :)
