I got my wisdom teeth removed about a month ago and could only eat soft foods for about two weeks. I came across these Bolthouse Farms beverages that I found at Publix during that time. Not only are these things delicious, but they’re healthy!! I feel like I’m getting on the right track when it comes to being more healthy now that I’m buying these. They aren’t thick like smoothies, which is great for me because I’m not a fan of those thick smoothies. The ones that I’ve had were the Green Goodness, Vanilla Chai Tea, Strawberry Banana, Chocolate Protein Plus, and the Strawberry Parfait Breakfast Smoothie.
The ones that I love the most are the Strawberry Banana and Chocolate Protein Plus. I’ve always liked strawberry banana yogurt, and I’ve also had strawberry banana yogurt smoothies that were also good. This Bolthouse fruit beverage did not disappoint. It has a sweet taste to it that I enjoy but has no sugar added to it. It’s one hundred percent fruit juice, and one hundred percent tasty.
Chocolate Protein Plus ties with the Strawberry Banana for my favorite Bolthouse beverage. I can’t choose just one! It’s a chocolate protein shake. Need I say more? It tastes exactly like chocolate milk, except it has 30 grams of protein and 21 vitamins and minerals in it. And it has a rich chocolate taste. Can you tell how much I love chocolate right now? This was the best thing that I’ve ever come across 😀
The ones that I didn’t love, but also didn’t hate were the Vanilla Chai Tea and the Green Goodness. The Vanilla Chai Tea is one of their cafe beverages, which is most likely why I wasn’t so in love with it. It’s a green tea, which I didn’t know before buying it, and it has soy in it. It’s not bad; I would still have one every once in a while. It’s not as flavorful as the other beverages that I liked. I was also disappointed that it didn’t taste too much like vanilla and had a ginger aftertaste to it.
The Green Goodness is a veggie beverage, which explains why I wasn’t too fond of that either. I’ve always liked fruits more than I liked vegetables. This was the first Bolthouse beverage that I bought after getting my wisdom teeth removed. I figured that I should start buying more healthy smoothies, so I picked up the first one that I thought might taste good. It’s a blend of many fruits and veggies like apples, mangos, pineapples, and kiwis. I wasn’t too impressed when I tried it for the first time. I liked it enough to buy another one, but I won’t be buying them as often as my favorites. For me, it was a bit too bitter for my liking.
I tried the Strawberry Parfait Breakfast Smoothie, and I like that one the least so far. I had it on Tuesday morning and couldn’t finish it. It’s a mixture of strawberry, yogurt, and whole grain. I get the strawberry yogurt taste when I first drink it, but the whole grain aftertaste is what ruins in for me.
I recently browsed their website to see what else they have, and there’s a whole lot of other flavors that I want to try. They have a Vanilla Protein Plus that I’m dying to try but haven’t seen it yet. I’m also curious to know how the Mango Protein Plus and Berry Boost taste. I’ve gotten my smoothies from Walmart and Publix, but I’m sure you can get them at any grocery store in the produce section. You can also browse around the Bolthouse Farms website and see what other smoothies they have right here. Thanks so much for reading.
