For the party, I used two blenders so I could have two different things going at once and we tried two different varieties of delicious Dole smoothies. My first batch was Mango, Pineapple, & Coconut smoothie by mixing one-half of a 14 oz. bag each of mango and pineapple, 1 cup of shredded coconut, ½ cup of plain yogurt, and about 1-1 ½ cups of fat free milk. I blended them up in the blender until smooth and creamy and it was delicious! Some of us mixed some coconut rum with ours to make a delectable smoothie cocktail. This one was definitely the hit of the party as we went through about 3 batches of this.
The second hit of the night was Cherry Chocolate in which I combined one 14 oz. bag of Dole Frozen Dark Cherries, ½ cup of plain yogurt, 1-1 ½ cups of fat free milk, and about ½ cup of chocolate chips. It was so yummy and rich that it was hard to have more than one cup of it. It would make a great dessert, though.
A few days before the party, my family and I tried a Tropical Blueberry Smoothie and anOrange Peach Smoothie both of which were very good and my kids absolutely loved them both. The Dole frozen fruit really makes it so easy to make these smoothies and if you make it while the fruit is still frozen, you don’t need ice. Just toss everything into the blender and go!
