Peach Mango, Mixed Berry, Banana Colada and Strawberry Banana are all flavors that taste great in a smoothie. It can be time consuming to make your own smoothies or you can spend a lot of money and buy one. Another choice is to pick up a Chiquita Smoothie at your local store and make your own great tasting, made with real fruit and for a cost of less than $1 per serving smoothie. Chiquita Smoothies are all natural, antioxidant rich and offers 100% vitamin C.
I was provided complimentary free Chiquita Smoothies, coupons and t-shirts and wanted to not only share in my opinion of the Chiquita Smoothies but I wanted to share with my readers. For my review, I tried the Peach Mango Chiquita Smoothie.
Here are the ingredients:
- Pineapple concentrate
- Filtered water
- Mango puree
- Peach puree
- White grape juice concentrate
- Natural flavors
- Guar gum for texture
- Ascorbic acid (vitamin C)
They are also dairy and gluten free for those you with intolerance to one of both. Each can is worth three servings and are only 120 calories.
They taste great and taste even better than the ones I purchase at local businesses in my opinion. The rich flavor is not over powering and definitely tastes great in the hot summer heat. It will also be a nice treat when I'm craving something sweet and don't want a lot of calories and with 0 fat, it's a good alternative. My girls are super picky so they didn't like it but if it doesn't come with a chicken nugget, they are done.
Chiquita even has some recipes you can try out on their website here. This one is very good:
Strawberry Banana Split Smoothie
- 1 can Strawberry Banana Chiquita™ Smoothie
- 1 c. whipped cream
- 5 Tbsp. chocolate syrup
- 4 oz water
- 2 cans of ice
Put all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth!
