This past weekend I planned a little surprise get together for my friend who has finally completed all requirements to be a full-fledged doctor all on her own. I invited a few of our friends over and wanted to keep things super simple so I searched for picnic foods on Pinterest. One thing I knew I wanted to make was some sort of fruit salad using the mint growing in my Mom’s garden. Up popped this delicious Mojito fruit salad.
Despite me forgetting raspberries, the fruit salad was a hit with everyone and even though I put it out as an appetizer while we waited for the guest of honor, she thought it was the dessert for the evening. There’s really not much you can say about fruit salad except that it was super quick, yummy, will be a summer party staple, and a perfect compliment to the next day’s breakfast.
After waking up with a bit of a groggy feeling I had no desire to make any sort of breakfast before tackling the mess in the kitchen (although not a big mess since my friends are awesome and pitched in before leaving). Thankfully I had a few Naked Juice Berry Almond Nutmilk left in the fridge. Naked Juices have always served as a quick, healthy, on-the-go snack that I can grab while out and about (actually, if I show up to the grocery store hungry I’ve been known to grab a Naked Juice to drink while shopping and pay for at the end, of course). Because they have no added sugars or preservatives I always feel good about drinking them!
Naked Juice has a deep tradition of goodness. Since its founding in 1983, they’ve been committed to creating the most nutritious beverages. Using the best ingredients available, they pack as much of Mother Nature’s bounty as possible into every bottle. The newest products – Berry Almond Nutmilk, Bright Beets, Chia Cherry Lime, Chia Sweet Peach, Proteins & Greens, and Kale Blazer – offer a delicious blend of fruits and vegetables and pack a nutritional punch.
I thoroughly enjoyed Berry Almond Nutmilk and they’ve kept me as full as my homemade smoothie does in the mornings! I’ve been incredibly thankful for Naked Juice for sending a few bottles my way as they have served perfectly in a pinch in the morning. They’ve replaced my usual morning smoothly on the days when I just can’t seem to get my act together. I only wish they had some vegetables in there! Here are some fun facts about Berry Almond Nutmilk.
- Each bottle of Berry Almond Nutmilk contains: 26 blueberries, 8 blackberries, 2 raspberries, 1 strawberry, 24 almonds, 1 3/4 apples and 1/3 banana.
- Berry Almond Nutmilk is gluten-free, vegan and dairy-free.
- This delicious, non-dairy smoothie blends together the goodness of fruit, almond milk and soy protein to deliver 11g of plant protein per bottle.
Naked Juice is for the active, on-the-go individual who knows it’s important to incorporate fruits and veggies into their diet, but doesn’t always have the time to chop, slice, cook or blend. It’s not always easy or convenient to fit fruits and vegetables into your morning routine, but Naked Juice provides you the option to make sure you are getting your daily dose of goodness. So, hey, if you can’t eat ‘em, drink ‘em.
