NEW Tesco Smoothie Mixes!

Hey everyone :)

So if you read my post last week - I've gotten into drinking and trying lots of different smoothies.

I decided to pop to Tesco to get some frozen mango and when I got to the freezer section - Tesco had a new range (well there is only 2 types) of frozen smoothie bags.

Basically it's a bag of frozen mixed fruit and they are in a resealable bag. You add 80g of the mixed fruit to a blender with 150ml of apple juice then blend and enjoy :)

Currently Tesco has two different flavours and you get 500g for £2.20.

As you can see from the pictures there is: 

Strawberry, Pineapple & Banana and Mango & Pineapple flavours.

At the moment I have tried both with the apple juice and they taste really good. I have found that you need to blend them until all the lumps are gone. I also found that the measured quantities are quite small for 1 portion so I double the quntities and use 160g of the mix and 300ml of apple juice. This gives me a suitable amount for my Starbucks cup.

I'm going to start trying different juices with it - I have some orange juice and also some apple and blackcurrant juice that I got in Asda last week so I will see how the flavours change when I replace the plain apple juice. I thought I might try it with milk to see if it makes it creamier.

I have heard some people say that you shouldn't buy frozen fruit and you should buy it fresh however that is costly and this frozen fruit is picked when its ripest and then flash frozen straight away so all the nutrients are locked in and not lost.

Let me know if you've tried anything like this before or if you know of better priced frozen smoothie mixes out there.
