First was their strawberry banana smoothie. Once again you needed 1 cup of ice but this time you could add water, milk, cream, yogurt or soy milk to the drink. I decided to go for yogurt since that is how we like our smoothies.
I loved that the smoothie tasted completely “real,” confirming that they did use strawberries and banana puree. But… So sweet!!! Like, almost too sweet to drink. The pouch alone is 210 calories but unlike the iced capps, you could REALLY taste it. Wowza!
Next we tried the Tropical Paradise, again with vanilla yogurt.
Even though it was only 210 calories, again so sweet! Tasted real and had great flavour but woah, too sweet.
Last was the berry smoothie mix.
This time I made it with milk, hoping to cut back on sweetness that may be in the yogurt.
Despite being 220 calories, this one did taste less sweet so perhaps if you are going to make this with yogurt, do so with unflavoured and unsweetened yogurt. This one had great ZING flavour to it that we liked a lot.
I make smoothies every day with unsweetened juices so this was a bit of a shocker for me. Definitely more of a dessert than a health food drink. That said, if I ever run out of real fruit for my smoothie, I will try their pureed drink mixes. But! I will add more ice to dilute it.
