With their cheery, colorful designs featuring a cute, overall-clad cow on the bottles, Clover The Rainbow smoothies are clearly intended for kids.
But the worst kept secret is they are so delicious and satisfying that adults will surely be clamoring for them, too.
The new product by family-owned Clover Sonoma is all organic. It’s full of fruit. And psst, it also contains vegetables.
Just get a load of the three flavors: Blueberry Beet; Strawberry Carrot; and Strawberry Banana Butternut.
I had a chance to try samples recently of all three, which come in single-serve resealable bottles. Just keep refrigerated, and give it a good shake before enjoying.
All three flavors are creamy, thick, and not overly sweet. Honestly, if you didn’t see the veggies listed predominantly on the front, you might not know they are there, as these smoothies are definitely fruit-forward tasting.
The Strawberry Banana Butternut tastes first of strawberry with a subtle banana creaminess to it. You don’t necessarily taste the butternut, but I’m guessing it adds natural sweetness. The Strawberry Carrot is probably the sweetest tasting of the three flavors, with a deep berry character.
The Blueberry Beet is the tangiest of the bunch, which adults will enjoy for its perky palatability. There’s also just the merest back note of earthiness to it.
One smoothie is fairly filling, and is certain to recharge you after a workout. Each bottle has 120 to 130 calories, depending on the flavor, as well as 20 percent of the calcium and 16 percent of the protein recommended daily. No artificial sweeteners or flavors are added.
