When I was shopping in Tesco’s last week I spotted their Tesco’s Super Fruit Smoothie in the chilled drinks lane. I decided to buy it and try it out because I was getting bored with the usual fresh orange or apple juice and needed a change. I’ve tried a few of the Innocent Smoothies before and quite liked them so this was the main reason I decided to buy this particular one. Another reason I decided to purchase it was because it was on special offer and was much cheaper than all the other Smoothies in the chilled drinks lane.
The Super Fruit Smoothie was on special offer and cost 1.25 for a 1 litre bottle, after the special offer ends the price for the Smoothie will go back up to 2.50 per bottle. I think that 2.50 for a 1 litre bottle is fairly reasonable because it would cost a lot more than 2.50 to make 1 litre of a Smoothie yourself at home using freshly bought fruit. Buying a ready made Smoothie from a bottle saves a lot of time too, it means that you don’t have to prepare the fruit to make the Smoothie and you don’t have to clean the Smoothie maker out after you have finished using it.
The Tesco Super fruit Smoothie is a dark purple colour and had a fairly thick consistency. It is a lot thicker and has more texture than the other brands of Smoothies I have bought in the past. Before I poured the Smoothie into a glass to give it the taste test I shook the bottle vigorously to mix all the bits of fruit together. Once I had poured it into the glass I had a good look at it before I drank it. It’s a really dark purple colour and you can clearly see thicker purple bits floating around it, these floating bits are the blended bits of fruit which are used to make the Smoothie. I liked the purple colour of the Smoothie but my husband wouldn’t even try it because “it looked disgusting” his words not mines.
When I tasted the Smoothie the texture was just right, it wasn’t too thin or too thick and there wasn’t loads of pulp in it. I immediately liked the taste of the Smoothie because it was sweet. It doesn’t have a sickly sweet artificial taste the sweet taste is from the fruits used to make the Smoothie rather than added sugar. On the carton of the Smoothie it tells us that the Smoothie has a Pomegranate, Blueberry and Acai flavour although I can taste different fruits blended in with this. The blueberry taste is clearly evident as is the pomegranate and these are the fruits which gave the Smoothie its slightly sharp tangy taste. I could also detect an
