I am always on the lookout for a healthy snack I can feed my children. Del Monte New Fruit Cups are not only good for you, but they taste great too! The most recent varieties to hit the shelves are Diced Apples & Pears with Caramel Flavor and Diced Pears with Vanilla Spice. These fruit cups are high on my "to buy" list because they are only 60 calories per serving, gluten free, and do not include high fructose corn syrup
Del Monte New Fruit Cups: Perfectly Proportioned for a Smoothie!
I recently went on the hunt to find these two Del Monte new fruit cups. To view my entire shopping trip, check out my Google+ photo album.
Fortunately, two of my three children love to eat fruit as much as I do. It doesn't matter what kind it is or how it's served, they will devour it and sometimes ask for more! "My little middle child" (a.k.a. my picky eater) will only consume it in the form of a smoothie. Luckily for me, all four of us love smoothies. So, that's what I decided to make with the Diced Pears with Vanilla & Spice fruit cups.
Smoothies are so much fun and easy to make. My blender recently broke when I moved, but the kids didn't mind because I have a blender bottle I use as a backup. It is small enough so they can each help make their own. Simple steps:
1 Del Monte Diced Pears with Vanilla & Spice Fruit Cup
1 6oz (individual serving) Vanilla Nonfat Yogurt
Splash of Apple Juice (optional)
Dash of Cinnamon (optional)
Add all ingredients to blender bottle, shake, and serve.
The apple juice is optional because there was actually enough in the fruit cup to create the consistency we wanted. If you prefer your smoothie a little thinner, you can add it.
Side Note: Since I didn't use a regular blender, the fruit was still a little chunky in the cup. If you also use a blender bottle, I recommend smashing the fruit with a fork before adding it.
One smoothie down, three to go!
I love those dimples and he loved his smoothie!
