WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CALIF. — Dole Packaged Foods is introducing frozen fruit smoothie kits, including a keto certified variety.
The Dole Keto Berry Blend has 8 grams of net carbohydrates and includes raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, avocado and stevia. The product is available in a resealable, multi-serve package and retails for $3.99 to $4.49.
“Maintaining a keto diet can be challenging given the need to consume healthy fats while limiting carbs, and still craving a variety of refreshing and satisfying foods,” said Fatma Kokon, director of frozen marketing of Dole Packaged Foods. “Dole Keto Berry Blend makes it easy to add fruit to a keto diet and enjoy ripe berry flavors in a rich, creamy and convenient smoothie any time.”
New Dole Boosted Blends combine frozen fruit with ingredients such as whey protein, almond butter and matcha green tea for added nutritional benefits. Varieties include Protein, with blueberries, banana, whey and almond butter; Energize, featuring mango, pineapple, banana and matcha green tea; and Vita-C, with strawberries, pineapple and acerola. The products are available in resealable, multi-serve packages for a suggested retail price of $9.99 to $10.99.
“Our Dole Boosted Blends take the fruit combinations you love in a smoothie and add a boost of energy, protein, or vitamin C, in just one quick and convenient step,” Ms. Kokon said. “It’s an easy way to start the morning and make your smoothies work just a little harder for you.”
