Bolthouse Farms Smoothies

Bolthouse Farms Smoothies

What makes a perfect smoothie?  Well, that’s a matter of opinion, really.  Some people like them thin, and some people (example:  me) love thick, frothy smoothies; some people like their smoothies to be saturated in sugar, fat and preservatives.  I am not one of those people, at least not anymore (I have a heck of a sweet tooth, and I haven’t always had the best control over it); I love a smoothie that’s packed to the brim with good-for-the-body fruits and vegetables, and full of healthy protein, nutrients and antioxidants.  Enter Bolthouse Farms smoothies.  These bottled gems are absolutely delicious; they’ve got a great texture, and each variety has layers upon layers of full flavor, plus all of Bolthouse farms’s juices are all-natural, with zero preservatives, nothing artificial, and no sugar added.  My favorite flavor is Green Goodness; it’s packed full of apples, with hints of pineapple, mango, banana and kiwi fruit.  I haven’t yet met a Bolthouse Farms smoothie I haven’t liked; I’d recommend trying them all.

The only negative I could say about this product is that they’re a tad on the expensive side.  Alas, as a habitual budgeter, I have a solution to this little issue:  I’ve found that it’s very simple to portion each bottle into 4 servings, and I can make 1 bottle last up to 4 days.  For example, I like to take a bottle to work, and drink ¼ of a bottle per day as a sort of afternoon snack, then it costs me much less per week, and I can drink this yummy goodness on a regular basis while maintaining a reasonable budget!

Some of Bolthouse farms’s smoothie flavors and health benefits:

 

Berry Boost: Starts with blackberries, boysenberries, raspberries, strawberries & blueberries; apple juice & banana puree is added. Berry Boost is rich in Vitamins A, C, E, B6 & B12.

 

C-Boost: Starts with Acerola cherries, mango puree & Camu Camu fruit; apple juice is added. C-Boost contains a high dose of Vitamin C to boost the immune system.

Green Goodness: Starts with wheat grass, spirulina, spinach & blue-green algae; added in are apples, kiwis, mangos, bananas, pineapples & dragon fruit. Green Goodness is a great source of Vitamins A, C, B12, B6 & iron.

  1. ok so they may be a bit on the pricy side but honestly all of the health benefits out weight the cost to health ratio that i just made up during this post. But in all seriousness they’re ultra delicious and healthy for you. Great post Michelle! ;)
