Dole Packaged Foods, LLC, Westlake Village, Calif., unveiled Dole Spoonable Smoothies in Pineapple Banana and Strawberry Banana offerings.
Designed to be eaten with a spoon, both options are a convenient breakfast or snack, and are under 200 calories.
"What began as a trend with açai bowls has translated into a broader smoothie bowl trend. We're seeing them pop up all over Instagram and Pinterest, as consumers hunt for a delicious new take on fruit for breakfast," says Erin Fasano, director of marketing, frozen. "Recognizing consumer demand for a delicious, no-prep, no-mess smoothie option, we developed Dole Spoonable Smoothies to serve that need."
