Quick Blueberry Banana with Red Beet Smoothie #DoleShakersDoesn’t that blueberry smoothie look delicious?! What if I told you that power-packed fruit & veggie smoothie (it even has beets) only took 1 minute to make and didn’t require the use of a blender?!

#DoleShakers Blueberry Power SmoothieI was able to find the blueberry variety at the store and you’d NEVER know that these POWER smoothies have veggies in too – it tastes just like fruit! My boys would NEVER eat beets on their own, so this was a great (and super fast way) to get them some fruit & veggies. To make the smoothies, all you have to do is add your favorite juice to the fill zone on the container and then shake it up. I’ve been on a coconut water quick lately, so I tried it with that instead of juice.Dole Shakers with Coconut WaterThe results were great! The boys thought it was SO fun shaking up the smoothies in the container and then of course they couldn’t wait to try it! It should come as no surprise that they loved them! #DoleShakersThe boys are BIG fans of smoothies and the #DoleShakers are no different. I love finding different ways to get a variety of color through various fruits & veggies into their diets. And, it’s nice to find convenience items that are still pack some nutrition power! So, be sure to check out your grocery store’s freezer aisle to pick up some DOLE Smoothie Shakers!

    I think the strawberry raspberry sounds good. But so did the blueberry banana. I will check next I shop HyVee as I am pretty sure the local hometown grocery will not have these. (But I could be surprised.) ;)
