Immune-boosting, creamy, and delicious! These gluten-free vegan smoothie bowls were made to share with your best friend, no matter how “opposite” they may be! Share the love, share the wellness, share the health!
They say opposites attract. From sweet and savory, naughty and nice, even between food-loving friends. But that’s a good thing. Differences allow us to grow, learn, and see things from another perspective. Opposites “fill the gaps”, so to speak. My dear friend, Natalie of Feasting On Fruit, who I call my “Fruity Friend”, is my opposite. First of all, she is smoothie OBSESSED! This girl could live (or does…) off of smoothies! If this girl doesn’t have at least 2 smoothies a day, I think she would spontaneously combust! Me? I could do without!
Maybe it’s because bananas aren’t my thing, so I never have them on hand for freezing and turning into smoothies. Bananas are so iconic to smoothies, right? Well, that’s the second thing. Natalie loves bananas too. She loves all fruit and that’s why she’s a high-carb vegan! Don’t get me wrong, I love fruit too. But where she is a banana and date kinda girl, I’m more of an apple and Asian pear girl. She doesn’t like to eat mango and kiwi skin. However, I think that’s the best part! When it comes down to it, if we were on a deserted island and we only had bananas and Brussels sprouts to eat. I would take the sprouts, she would take the nanners.
That brings me to the greatest “opposite attraction”, yet. Fruit and veggies! You’d think they don’t like to mingle, but I’ve shown you numerous times that they can and are one of the best food marriages. Lucky for us, this combo is becoming more mainstream and accepted. Dole® Fruit & Veggie Blends are bringing this sweet and savory couple to life in 3 varieties of frozen smoothie mixes (Fruit & Greens, Mango Carrot, and Orange Medley)! Ready to use fruit and veggie combos that pack great taste without the guess work. Just natural, non-gmo frozen fruit and veggies full of fiber and Vitamin A & C. Found at various retailers, including Stop ‘n’ Shop.
Since you know it’s always my goal to make food fun and always be trying new ingredients and techniques to cook with, stepping out of the common foodie routine is a must. Where Natalie is making me more inclined to rekindle my long-lost smoothie blending and I’m challenging her to develop more savory dishes, this immune-boosting smoothie is dedicated to our foodie friendship. One thing I know for certain is that we both love potatoes. Now if potatoes were the only thing we had on our deserted island, there would be a problem. (Natalie better be ready to fight!). “Hypothetically” 😉 Since the Dole® Fruit & Veggie Blend, Orange Medley, is a beautifully orange-filled nutrient-packed combo of mangos, mandarin oranges, pineapple, bananas and sweet potatoes, I thought it would please us both rather nicely. She gets her bananas in the deal, while I’m adding some of my favorite savory immune-boosting additions!
An immune-boosting smoothie will keep us at our best for our foodie endeavors this year. Just like friends boost each other up, no matter their differences, this smoothie will boost you up as well! Quickly whipped up in the NutriBullet (which I was gifted!) and which you can get 15% off when you use the code “BESTBLEND” at check-out on the NutriBullet site (expires 3/31/16).
