Fruti Natural Fruit Bars and the Ultimate Smoothie
I will admit I am a fan of junk food, but I am making a conscious effort to have cleaner options and snacks in our home. I am cutting out all of the processed junk I tend to purchase. Easier said than done, I know.

We made a trip to Sams Club yesterday and one of my main purposes was to shop healthier. I say this all the time, but conscious shopping is the best way to do it. My number one priority is to read labels and don’t go to store when we are hungry, or craving junk food. I had a goal to replace our desserts in our home with a frozen option that is refreshing, healthy and my family would really enjoy. We found the Fruti natural fruit bars 16 count variety box and I was immediately excited to get home and try these delicious flavors out. Nothing says summer time more than a cold Pina Colada, Strawberry, Strawberry Cream and Caribbean Mix.
Once home I made a quick purge of my freezer, to see what we should throw out. My momma always said don’t trash food, but junk food that my family shouldn’t be eating is an exception, right?! All those guilty pleasures are filled with extra sugar and added colors my family doesn’t need. We brought home the Chunks O’ Fruti Natural Fruit Bars that are packed with real chunks of fruit in each bar with no added colors, flavors, no high fructose corn syrup and Non-GMO verified bars. The 100% natural bars are the perfect replacement.
Now the taste test! My littlest was excited to get his hands on a bar and with the weather reaching 80 degrees yesterday it was a nice cool treat for him after coming inside from a tiring playtime. He decided on the Caribbean Mix. Check out all that fruit you can see in that bar. My little guy was a little intimidated by the fruit in the bar. He chose to eat around it at first but soon he did dig into the fruit chunks and chew them up. The fruit is not chewy and is actually more of the same texture in the frozen bar and broke up quite easily.
For myself I chose to try the recipe for making smoothies with your Fruti Natural Fruit Bars. Recipes on the box, but I did cut it down a bit to make a single drink for myself. With three easy steps and a few minutes I was able to whip up a smoothie. I made a 16 oz drink to take along with me to my sons late afternoon baseball game. (The recipe called for 4 bars mixed together). I decided to mix one Pina Colada and one Strawberry Cream bar with ice and water in a blender.
And tada in a few minutes I had this luscious refreshing Fruti Natural Fruit Bars drink. Perfect for taking along with me in a travel cup. I was very surprised at how flavorful, sweet and refreshing this smoothie is. It is the perfect smoothie blend and I shared with my husband and he is now asking for his own smoothie today. These Fruti bars are proving to not last long around here. They are a hit in our home.
All in all we are very impressed with these tasty treats they are healthy tasty alternatives to the junk I was keeping in my freezer and taste great.
