I was a bit hesitant when Chiquita asked me to review their new smoothie mixes. I'm not normally a fan of pre-package smoothie mixes or powders as I'd much rather make my own by adding fresh fruit, yogurt and ice to the blender. Just do a search for smoothie and you'll see how many ideas I've posted and to be honest, I make many more that I never tell you about. 🙂
So I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised when my smoothie mixes arrived. I looked immediately at the ingredient list and saw no sugar, no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial sweeteners. Nothing but fruit purees, water, fruit juices, guar gum and ascorbic acid. FINALLY! I'm happy some brands are catching on!
The blender I used in the video is the Oster Fusion Blender. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. As you'll see, it makes the smoothies perfectly.
