Menu Plan Monday — Bolthouse Farms Smoothies

menuplanmondayMonday: Grilled Chicken Tex Mex Packets — packet meals are popular here, since they’re so easy to personalize for each person’s tastes.

Tuesday: Sweet and Sour Chicken

Wednesday: make your own pizza — I make the crust, then each person puts their toppings of choice onto their own personal pizza

Thursday: Baked Potato Soup — I haven’t made this recipe yet.

Friday: Slow Cooker Cashew Chicken — looks good — update — good, but VERY salty.

You’ll notice all my recipes this week come from Pinterest. In case you’re not familiar with how Pinterest works — when you click on the recipe link, it takes you to a picture (“pin”) of the recipe. To see the recipe, just click on the photo and the recipe will open up.  I’m starting to use Pinterest as a type of online cookbook to keep track of recipes we like. Do you use Pinterest much for recipes?

Desserts this week (surprisingly, I’m in a fruity rather than chocolate-y mood …):

Easiest Pineapple Cake — I’ve made it and it’s delicious

Bolthouse Farms Smoothies

In other food-related news — this beverage is a frequent sight at our house lately (actually, a more common sight is the empty bottle). I discovered Bolthouse Farms Smoothies thanks to a coupon, and now the kids are hooked. Truth be told, I love them too — but in typical Mom fashion, I save them for the kids.

Our favorite is the Strawberry Banana Smoothie. It’s delicious: the 56-oz bottle contains 13 servings of fruit. It tastes so delicious — you really have to taste it to see. They make it so easy for teens to get the fruit they need each day: they feature 100% juice with no added sugar, and the strawberry banana variety contains 100% of the daily Vitamin C requirement, as well as 9% of daily potassium. The juices and smoothies are a bit pricey, but worth it as a healthy splurge. Discover where to buy them near you!

Thanks to Bolthouse Farms for coupons to try their products. With or without coupons, we truly love them!

  1. I was in Aldis in Columbus Saturday. I was not looking for Bolthouse products but I did notice they carry them. That sort of surprised me. I have yet to buy/try the product.

  2. Do the smoothies have high fructose corn syrup? Or are they sweetened naturally only? That looks delicious to me. I may try some. I’m glad to know that Aldis carries them.

  3. I just checked the link to see where they’re sold near here. They say, “No luck!” Wouldn’t you know?

  4. looks like some yummy food in your house. The Boy and Hubby like Bolthouse too but I don’t pick up the fruit ones, we go with the coffee, vanilla and such. I only buy when the are b1g1f but even then, still a little pricey.
