The other day I went to my local Rainbow Foods to pick up some produce.   Their cored, fresh pineapple is a favorite, and a welcome addition to our diets as we make an effort to increase our fruit and vegetable intake after the New Year.  As I continued shopping the produce section, I noticed little tags that said ‘organic,’ ‘gluten free,’ and ‘vegan.’  I learned this was part of their health key™ system, which is a wellness program designed to simplify your shopping experience and make it easier to select healthier foods….

Diet Mixed Berry Smoothie

healthy diet mixed blueberry strawberry blackberry yogurt smoothie

This Diet Mixed Berry Smoothie is quick and easy to make and perfect for breakfast on a busy morning, a post-workout recovery drink, or an afternoon pick me up.  Made with just a few healthy ingredients, it’s a vitamin-packed smoothie that can be enjoyed anywhere, anytime (and portable too for when you’re on-the-go!).

 

Recently, I was given the opportunity to try Ocean Spray’s Diet Juice Drinks and thought it would a tasty addition to this smoothie recipe.  At only 5 calories per serving, swapping out full-calorie juices in favor of Ocean’ Spray’s Diet Juice Drinks can help save calories (and carbs, if that’s a concern), while still tasting delicious.   For this recipe, I used Ocean Spray’s Diet Cranberry juice and it went nicely with the berries used in the rest of this smoothie.  For next time, I have my eyes on the Diet Blueberry Pomegranate!
