Smoothies are hugely popular in the U.S. and around the world today because they meet two major needs: they’re a great source of nutrients and a delicious, refreshing treat. In other words, smoothies are one of the best “healthy indulgences” out there.
But not all fruit smoothies are created equal, and the quest to find the best one can be challenging and confusing. So, here are a few tips from the Fruit Experts® to help you solve the smoothie puzzle and discover The Authentic Smoothie.
Less is more. The first is to make sure that you’re not getting more “stuff” than needed in your smoothie. As we started working to create the best smoothie in the world, we discovered that some can include 30 or more ingredients! In our opinion, 30 ingredients is about 27 too many for something that’s supposed to be wholesome and naturally delicious. As a rule of thumb, stay away from things that you can’t pronounce.
Fresh and frozen just aren’t the same. What comes to mind when you think of fruit? A crystalized, frozen strawberry or a shiny, red, fragrant one? Turns out most smoothies you can get today are made with frozen fruit. Here’s where being the Fruit Experts® makes a difference – we always make our smoothies with just the good stuff: 100% fresh, never frozen fruit.
Be authentic. Even worse, other smoothies are also filled with hard-to-pronounce sweeteners and sorbets because just they don’t taste good enough. We call ours The Authentic Smoothie because it’s just like the one you’d probably make at home (except we freshly craft it at our place for you).
Seems simple, right? So why has no one thought of this before?! Einstein said, “The definition of genius is taking the complex and making it simple.” We’re certainly not geniuses, but we think this fresh smoothie idea is pretty brilliant one.
