Cool Off This Summer With Frozen Yogurt Smoothies From Red Mango!12:44 PM
*I've partnered with Red Mango to bring you this exciting new product information via a sponsored post.
Have you seen all the trendy yogurt stores popping up this year? It's crazy how many I've seen in Omaha (which is the closest metro near me.) I have always been an ice cream fan, but since becoming pregnant, I've made it a mission to get more fresh fruits into my diet, and I'm also a big advocate of making sure to have healthy probiotics, as well. The best way I know of to get these yummy-tummy healthy bugs is to eat yogurt, so I was excited to try Red Mango's line of Frozen Yogurt Smoothies made from real fruit and yogurt - especially since they contained superbiotics for digestive health!
I was a little overwhelmed when I first ordered; there was quite a selection to choose from (22 in all), with four categories of benefits:
Body Balance: These functional frozen yogurt smoothies are formulated with beneficial boosts
All Fruit Harmony: These were dairy-free and soy-free smoothies made only with fruit, juice and ice. This is what my husband ordered, as he is not a yogurt fan.
Twisted Fruits: Fun combinations of smooth and creamy signature yogurt smoothies were anything but boring.
Just Kidd'n: These small fruit and yogurt smoothies had kid-friendly flavors, but would make a great snack for even an adult.
I settled on the Pomegranate. It was delicious! I could definitely taste some yogurt, but it was not bitter, sour, or overwhelming. It mostly tasted like the fruits that went into it, and looked more like a slushie type drink than a dairy product. It stayed cold for a long time, and really helped keep me full until dinner. (See my pictures below).
I skipped any mix-ins, but it was good to know that you could boost your drink with added benefits, if you wanted. My husband actually opted to add a little energy kick to his dairy-free smoothie. In addition to the protein, energy, immunity and multivitamin boosts currently available, Red Mango has added four new boosts which have been formulated with natural, wholesome and innovative ingredients:
- Metabolic Fit 360™: A proprietary blend of protein, calcium and African Mango which supports metabolic balance and promotes healthy weight management.
- Dark Chocolate Mate: Finely ground, Brazilian roasted maté and dark chocolate; a delicious, rich, low-calorie flavor which also supplies a nice dose of antioxidants.
- Tropical Hibiscus: Finely ground, premium Nigerian hibiscus blossoms infused with natural pineapple and lychee; a bright and tropical low-calorie flavor and antioxidant boost.
- Green Tea Acai: Finely ground, premium green tea with açai berries, the Amazonian superfruit; a low-calorie antioxidant boost made with the best ingredients.
As you can see, it's completely possible to customize both the flavors and ingredients of a frozen yogurt smoothie with the benefits you're looking for!Wanna Save?
