Fresh Fruit Smoothies

Other than fruit drinks, another summertime favorite is fresh fruit smoothies.  Other than tasting delicious and being a great cool drink in the hot summer, fruit smoothies are a nourishing treat.  Fruit smoothies provide essential vitamins and minerals that a healthy body needs.

Depending on the fruits you use, smoothies can contain good amounts of vitamin C, potassium, folate, manganese, beta carotene, antioxidents and phytonutrients.  Fruit smoothies also contain fiber which helps to slow digestion and helps to control blood sugar and lower cholesterol.  Some people use smoothies as a meal replacement when trying to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight.  When eaten in moderation smoothies also make a great snack.  We recommend consulting with your physician before making them a regular part of your diet.

Fruit SmoothieTo make a smoothie you will need a blender, fresh fruit, and a base.  The base can be water, milk or yogurt.  Adding milk or yogurt to your smoothie can be good for your bones as it will help you to meet the recommended calcium intake numbers.

Is Fruit a Good Gift When Asking A Girl Out?

Dear Edible Fruit,

I need some relationship advice.  I met Kai in a class we were both in and we seem to have made a connection.  Her birthday is coming up and I’d like to ask her to go on a date with me.  I’d like to get her an appropriate gift to offer when I ask her out and to serve as a birthday gift.  The problem is I need to find something appropriate that isn’t too personal or over the top, I don’t want to scare her off.  Do you think a fruit bouquet is appropriate?

Dear NFFBA,

It sounds like you’ve given this date request some serious thought and it is very sweet of you to consider offering Kai a gift when asking her out on a date.  You are wise to avoid an overly personal gift as this could be a turn off to a girl not expecting it.

Without knowing Kai’s personality or much about the relationship that you’ve already developed, we think a fruit bouquet would be a wonderful gift to give for her birthday / date request.  Not only is a fruit bouquet beautiful, it is delicious and healthy and will most likely be a bit out of the ordinary for her to receive.  We think it would make a great and lasting impression on her, creating a memory that she will not soon forget.

If you’ve decided to give a fruit bouquet you will need to consider how much you want to spend, how big of a fruit bouquet you’ll want to give, where you’ll purchase the fruit bouquet and if you’ll be delivering it personally.  You definitely want to make sure it’s a fresh bouquet so consider the timing of when it will be made, when you’ll pick it up and when you’ll deliver it.  You might also do some investigating to make sure she’ll be home before you stop by.  Read up on some more fruit bouquet purchasing tips for more help.

We wish you the best and hope she says yes to the date!
