Taste Test Tuesday: DOLE Shakers & Fruit Crisps

Hello, Hello, Hello!! We missed you all these past two weeks but we’re back with some tasty and healthy treats for you. Spring is here, people have made New Year’s Resolutions to lose weight, eat healthy or just try new things. Well today for Taste Test Tuesday we have two new fruit products from DOLE, just for you.

DOLE Shakers

In a rush, don’t have your blender handy? Then this is definitely the smoothie for you. Grab a DOLE Shaker from the freezer aisle at your local grocery store, fill it up with juice (approximately 7 oz, there is a line on the bottle), shake it up and there is your fruit smoothie. They come in 3 flavors: Strawberry, Mixed Berry, Strawberry & Banana. Smooth, rich taste of fruit, yogurt and your favorite juice makes this drink a wonderful snack, or even a meal. This drink does have Pre & Probiotics in it, so you will get your live cultures in your diet, and it’s under 200 calories, low in fat, trans-fat free and filled with protein.

Each smoothie is considered a single serving (11oz) and can be found in your local grocery stores, so far we haven’t seen any of these for over $2.00 each. Grab a shaker, add your juice and let us know what you think!

DOLE Fruit Crisps

There are days when I really want a homemade dessert that just takes me back to my childhood. Sometimes I crave peach cobbler, other times it’s pecan pie, or apple crisp. Growing up we always went apple picking every fall, then come home and see how many dishes we could make with all the apples we picked up. One dish in particular was always my favorite: Apple Crisp. Something about the crunchy oat and warm apples put a smile on my face. DOLE came out with these single serving (4 oz) Fruit Crisps. These can be eaten at room tempature, chilled or warmed in the microwave. Each bowl has whole grain oats and brown sugar topping for you to add on top or mix in. The Fruit Crisps come in 3 flavors: Apple Cinnamon, Apple Pear and Peach. You can find these in the fruit aisle in your local grocery stores, if you shop at any club stores (Sam’s, BJ’s, Costco’s) they also have them their in bulk (the only way we buy them lol.)

Great for dessert, a quick snack, or just because. Grab a bowl and enjoy your fruit, that is filled with Vitamin C and contains whole grain oats.
