REVIEW: Tim Horton’s NEW Real Fruit Smoothies

I was shocked to hear that apparently only 5% of Canadians say they consume the 7-10 recommended servings of fruit and veggies a day!

Well, now good old Tim Horton’s has come to our rescue again! Not only can we get our daily java fix, but we can also add another full serving of fruit to the mix as well with their Mix Berry or Strawberry Banana smoothies. The smoothies are fat free and made with real fruit. They contain no artifical colours or flavours and you can add low fat yogurt to get some dairy into your diet and make them a bit creamier if that suits your taste!

Both of my kids felt like grown ups drinking their Fruit Smoothies! I think part of it may have had to do with the fact that they came in the same cups as Iced Capps do. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a drink disappear so fast in my life.

Both flavours are delicious. We all did prefer the strawberry banana, but that is probably because when you try both side by side it is slightly sweeter and the mixed berry is just a tad tart (not too tart though, just when compared to the other option!).

For $1.99, I think the Fruit Smoothies are well worth picking up for a quick snack. Much healthier than a muffin or a donut and definitely just as filling, in my opinion 🙂

    The problem is that the smoothie’s sugar content is quite a bit higher than even the sugariest of their donuts. That said, the fact that there is “some” fruit in it helps, but it should by no means replace actual fruit.

    I watched Tim Hortons make my smoothie, and I didn’t see them put any “real fruit” in it, just juice from a carton, like fruitopia, which is mostly sugar and water. Granted I didn’t get to read the label, but it tasted pretty watered down, not like smoothies I’ve had made with actual real fruit. I doubt this would qualify as a serving of fruit!!!!!
