|There used to be a time where smoothies could only be had fresh out of a blender at home. Then, beginning with the iconic Orange Julius, chains like Smoothie King, Jamba Juice and Robek’s began popping up all over the place. Now, we have become a nation of smoothie drinkers.
We recently tasted Sunkist Naturals’ line of premium, all-natural smoothies, featuring fruit juices sourced from small regional farms—juicy Marion berries from Oregon and Michigan, sweet strawberries from coastal California and legendary Alphonso mangoes. They have no added sugar, preservatives or any artificial ingredients and are laden with antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients. Flavors include Berry Blue Bountiful, Berry Cherry Bountiful, Glorious Greens, Golden Mango, Orange Cream, Pomegranate Sunshine, Strawberry Dream and 100% Valencia Orange.
Sunkist Naturals are not as thick as smoothies from Odwalla and Naked Juice, and as a result, a few fewer calories. We liked them all (like ice cream, has there ever been a smoothie flavor anyone didn’t like?) With eight delicious flavors we’re sure you’ll find one to call your own. Suggested retail price is for $2.79 for 15.2 ounce bottle and $3.99 for 1 liter.
