Spring Time Smoothies in a Bowl with Dole Fridge Packs

Hello and happy April! I'm a bit late but my computer somehow got hacked and I have had to get that sorted before being able to pop in and say hi. What a nightmare I felt completely violated they got right into the depths of my computer system which was not good, thankfully though its all sorted now. Lucky as I have lots to blog about this month so I shall get on and share my first post with you.....


I was lucky enough to get some new Dole fridge packs to try out so with the weather turning warmer I new I was going to get my smoothie groove on and make some yummy smoothies in a bowl. I hardly ever have fruit other then bananas and sometimes frozen blueberries so it was nice to have other options to try out with. 

Dole's fridge packs are packaged in resealable pouches which makes them easy to store plus keeps the fruit nice and fresh. They contain ripe fruit and fruit juice only and can be eaten anyway you prefer, with yogurt or straight from the back as a snack on your breakfast or in cakes totally up to you but I new it was smoothies all the way for me. They come in 4 options Prunes, Peaches, Pineapple chunks and mixed fruit and you can find them in the tinned fruit section. They have also brought out a new range of frozen sealable fruit packs too which I am yet to try so keep your eyes peeled for those in the freezer section another product perfect for smoothies, yay!
