Fitness Friday - Bolthouse Farms Strawberry Banana Smoothie
Bolthouse Farms is one of the more widely known and easy to find natural juice and smoothie brands. As I stated above, I have used this brand for a long time. I actually began drinking their juices and smoothies before I ever started exercising or became a vegetarian. So I have a pretty good track record with this company...
"We have a sneaking suspicion that strawberry and banana always knew they were meant for each other. So they were probably really excited when we put them together to make our classic Strawberry Banana Smoothie. Sweetened only with natural fruit, this is one combo you won’t soon forget." This product is: Gluten Free, Vegan, and Dairy Free. It contains no High Fructose Corn Sugar and is high in Vitamin C. This is a great smoothie to try is you get sick easily when the seasons change and in the cold weather.
The taste of this product is stronger on the strawberry than on the banana and provides on the best natural strawberry flavors on the market. This product comes in three different sizes, I would recommend trying the single serving bottle first (8 oz) however I have been buying the 52 oz bottle for a few years now. I drink one 8 oz glass every day so this size is what I need to get through the week. One serving delivers all the needed Vitamin C and delivers more than the Daily Recommended amount. I might graduate to two 8 oz glasses if I feel a cold coming on but I only need one serving to feel great each day.
This is not a miracle smoothie, it will complement a good diet and add additional Vitamin C to enhance health. It is great way to enjoy strawberries all year long and good for a sweet taste without eating candy or other not-so-great for you sweets. My goal is to try every single one of these smoothies and I will continue to report back on Fridays as I find more flavors for you to try!
