Frush ~ Product Review
Have you heard of Frush yet?
If you haven't - no worries, you surely will soon.
Frush is a new yogurt and fruit shake that contains protein, probiotic and calcium. It's made with real fruit and a rich, creamy yogurt. It's like a smoothie and a shake mixed in one. It's got all the benefits of a smoothie and the thickness of a yummy shake!
It comes in four delicious flavors: Strawberry, Strawberry banana, Peach and blueberry.
Strawberry was my daughter's favorite, and mine, too. I'll admit I didn't try the strawberry-banana flavor - because I personally don't do bananas. The blueberry was really yum, as well. I'd say the kids all preferred the strawberry flavor. I don't know if that's because it's strawberry season here in NC, and they're all in the mood for that red, juicy taste, or just because that was the best flavor of the bunch.
Peach was probably the least well-liked. I think kids don't branch out to peach-flavored things very often, so it's not something they recognized as quickly as the other three. In fact, I think we have a few peach ones left in our fridge, so they're definitely going more slowly.
Honestly I think my daughter would have enjoyed 2-3 of these every day if she could have. The individual serving size I was provided with for my party and review was a perfect breakfast for her, but sometimes she'd request a second one soon after. Do all kids do that - or just mine?
8.4 ounces of Frush contains 200 calories (that's the small bottle size). It's a perfect addition to your breakfast on-the-go choices for a mom ready to rush out of her house in the early mornings, as many moms do! It's a great after school snack for the little ones, especially if you pour it over some ice and give them a wide straw.
I did notice that the thickness was sometimes difficult to get through a standard thin straw, which is good, as far as taste and the ability to fill you up goes, but for the kids it was a little bit rough from the get-go because they can't exactly run around with cups that don't have lids. Even at age 5, I would worry that my daughter will end up with more on her clothes or my house than in her mouth if I did that.
By the way, my husband, who is usually not a big smoothie fan - but certainly enjoys a milkshake on occasion - actually liked these, too. Blueberry was his favorite flavor.
