An easy way to enjoy fresh fruit from Dole

Dole is rocking my world right now.  You may have read my post from yesterday about their new Shakers product.  I’m obsessed.  But they also sent me these fresh frozen fruit cups to try out too!  I made a pre-dinner smoothie for them to work in a serving of fruit and it couldn’t have been easier.

The Dole frozen fruit single serving cups come in a two pack and are kept frozen.  With detailed thawing instructions on the back for optimal enjoyment, Dole has made it even easier to have a healthy alternative, fast and ready to go.

You simply remove the plastic lid and use however you want to!

My kids were so into these!  We decided to make them in to a quick smoothie before dinner (but I figured this would be their usual fruit serving they would usually have at dinner so it wasn’t like I was giving them a treat right before dinner – I’m saying this mostly for my mom’s benefit in case she reads this.  She would be appalled that I gave the kids something right before dinner.  The horror!)

One son doesn’t like pineapple so I kept it out of the initial smoothie.  I added a Dole strawberry cup and a blueberry cup to some ice and about a cup of orange juice.

So fast and easy.  Once I poured a glass for my pineapple hating son, I added the Dole pineapple cup to the blender and mixed that in for my pineapple tolerant son.  I felt good about their “snack” and there was no hassle at all.  These would be great for school lunches where you could put them in the lunchbox frozen.  They would be great to take with you for a healthy snack on the go and there are tons more ways that they can be used!  Dole is giving us all kinds of healthy options for summer.  My favorite part about these is that they aren’t packed in syrup or any added sweeteners.  Just fruit.

Dole has been touring around the country sharing samples of their two fabulous new products as well as bringing awareness to childhood obesity and nutrition and helping local Boys and Girls Clubs.  If you are in the Los Angeles area, head to The Grove next Saturday to learn how your family can find healthier food options this summer as well as finding activities to do together.  See all the info on their Facebook page (click the photo that says Shake it Up).

  1. So I have had these in my freezers and I’ve never used them. I think I bought them because they were so cute but I never knew what to do with them? Now I will definitely be trying them :)

  2. Now as good as it sounds can you honestly say that my grandsons both ate all of their dinner after having a late afternoon snack?

      Yes of course they did! (actually I don’t remember but I would venture to say probably not since 99% of their dinners go pretty much untouched but that isn’t due to snacks.)
