Fitness Friday - Bolthouse Farms Amazing Mango Smoothie
Bolthouse Farms has long been my favorite juice company and I have been drinking their Strawberry Banana Smoothie for quite a few years now. I have been intrigued by their mango smoothies so I decided that there is no time like the present to try a new one out. I have gone through two bottles of the Amazing Mango in the past three days and I can safely say that I have a new obsession and another way to get my Vitamin C this fall and winter.
"Made with 100% fruit, our Amazing Mango® Smoothie puts the spotlight on Mother Nature’s natural solo artist. Packed with mango and the antioxidant power of vitamins A and C, the word ‘amazing’ really is putting it lightly. But we’re humble, so.", states the Bolthouse Farms website.
This smoothie is pretty simple, it is pure mango and tastes great (if you like Mango). This smoothie is packed with Vitamins A and C which I love since it is much harder for me to take them in the fall and winter months. I would like to see this smoothie made with less sugar since the mango is sweet enough on its own and the added sugar can throw my daily sugar grams out of whack. That's a minor complaint and I will just need to make sure that I am carefully watching my diet around it.
I still love Bolthouse Farms and I will continue to buy their Strawberry Banana and Amazing Mango Smoothies and keep investigating what else is in their juice line up.
