I don’t see how a bottle smoothie could be tasty.  To me, a smoothie isn’t a smoothie if it doesn’t contain yogurt and bananas, and they need to be freshly made.

Are you trying to increase your calorie intake or something like that?  If not, it’s probably better to just snack on some fruit and water (or a low caffeine tea) rather than have a bottled drink.

I agree that I love homemade blender smoothies with yogurt and fresh fruit BUT I will sometimes pick up a NAKED smoothie! The all natural Gold Machine is my favorite!! The berry one is also pretty good. Im sure the sugar content is all that great but they are filling and delicious!! You can get them at the grocery store in the produce aisle or at the convenience store!

Target has a brand called Archer Farms and they have some tasty bottled smoothies.  They usually get you though, as there are always 2 servings per bottle.

Yeah, Naked Smoothies.  Odwalla makes a few good ones, too.  I just know a few of my favorite flavors from Naked: Mango Madness, Red Machine, Blue Machine.  Naked’s Peach Guava with Coconut Water is a good one with slightly fewer calories.

 

The biggest downside to these bottled smoothies is while they’re full of vitamins, they also have all of fruit’s sugar with none of the fiber.  That fiber is one of the biggest upsides to eating fruit, and that’s what helps make smoothies and all that stuff filling.  Also, like Lindsay12.31.2010 said, most of these drinks have 2 servings.  The only Naked Juice I’ve seen with fiber is Naked’s Berry Veggie machine, and it’s an acquired taste (i.e., I’ve learned to like it, boyfriend hates it).

Naked is the best, especially the mango! V8 strawberry banana (I think that’s what flavor it is) is pretty good too.
