Do you love smoothies? I do but I usually love only the fruity ones and my husband loves the veggie ones.  On so many levels {but not all!} my husband and I are complete opposites but we're best friends.  Orange and Kale Blast Smoothie at cupcakesandcrinoline.com

 

 

 

He's 6 feet 5". I'm 5 feet 2".  He has black hair but shaves his head.  I have blonde hair and like it long.  When I think the sky is falling he always assures me it's not.  I'm fidgety and need to move, pretty much constantly.  He can sit for hours and not get bored.  I like to shop.  He likes to sit in the car and wait for me.  When he decides to watch what he's eating he does.  When I decide to watch what I'm eating I mean tomorrow.  The list goes on and on and on but now we have something that we both totally agree on and can't get enough of - this recipe for Orange Blast Fruit and Veggie Smoothies.  

I make smoothies for my husband and kids and then drink what's leftover but with this recipe I make some just for me as well.  

I used Dole Fruit & Veggie Blends, Orange Medley, as the main ingredient for this recipe because it's all natural real frozen fruits and vegetables, it's a good source of fiber and Vitamins A & C and it's easy to find in your store's frozen fruit aisle.  Dole fruit & VEGGIE Blends

    This sounds delicious! My Mister absolutely loves vegetables as well, and I'm not a fan. But spinach? Oh I love me some spinach! I've never seen those smoothie-fruit-packs before, either! I remember quite a few years ago when smoothies for dieting started to become "popular" and there were a few in the freezer section at the store, and some were actually pretty good, but never stuck with it. Will have to take a look again and see what's available!

      I'm beginning to embrace (not tightly, LOL) healthier eating. When my husband or middle son makes me lunch they add spinach to my sandwich and I'm not making faces anymore so that's a good thing. You'll love the Dole blends - there are two other ones to choose from but I haven't tried those yet. The Orange Medley was really, really good and I'll be buying that again. Thanks so much for stopping by and have an awesome day!

    My daughter is hooked on smoothies! I'll pin this for her!

  3. I love smoothies - in fact, I have one every day. I've never thought to use apple juice in mine! Thanks for the great idea and the tip to use Dole Fruit & Veggie blends! #client
