My love of pressed juices is well documented on this blog but I’ve got to tell you, when it’s as hot outside as it is right now (I am sweating just thinking about leaving the air conditioning), all I want is a smoothie. The problem I’ve had with smoothies is that I go to order one, thinking I am all good and healthy, and what I end up with is essentially a designer milkshake- essentially, ice cream with a ton of added sugar with a tiny hint of fruit.
Enter Red Mango. I love their frozen yogurt because it’s 100% natural, full of pro-biotics, with no added artificial sweeteners so when I went to try one of their 22 new super biotic smoothies for summer, I had high hopes. It was hot, I had just come in from a run, I needed…a smoothie. And let me tell you, they delivered. I chose one in the “All Fruit Harmony” category- dairy free, soy free, just fruit, juice and ice. It was light and refreshing and (omg) actually tasted like fruit. It had an energy boost in it because, let’s be honest, an early flight that morning was starting to catch up with me. The boosts effect was just as refreshing and natural as the smoothie itself. The smoothie absolutely hit the spot and I am absolutely past my prejudice against smoothies- I know I can now go to Red Mango and get something good for me that also tastes good. That’s all I really ask from anything I put in my body, ya know?
Red Mango also has these new smoothie boosts that are designed to meet the nutritional and dietary needs of those who are after a wholesome, well-balanced diet. These bad boys are joining the ranks of the protein, energy, immunity and multivitamin boosts currently available:
