Well guys, we’re almost to the end of January, how are you doing with your New Year’s resolutions? I’ve usually fallen off this wagon by this time but this year I’m really focused on keeping simple, healthy snacks around the house that the whole family will eat.

I’ve started making the family smoothies as a quick and delicious afternoon, or after dinner snack. My kids love fruit, if it is one they are used to, getting them to try something new and a little different isn’t always so easy. Smoothies have become a great way for me to introduce new things to their diet without them even knowing it! All I have to do it give it a fun name like a Purple Monkey Smoothie, and tell them it has bananas and blueberries in it and they are all about it. They have no idea I’ve also added Sunsweet® PlumSmart® Light. Plums and prunes have so many amazing health benefits I really wanted to add them to my families diet.

PlumSmart Light is made from a special variety of fresh, juicy plums and has only 60 calories and 15g of carbs, and helps you stay fit on the inside by providing a good source of fiber. Fiber may contribute to maintaining a consistent digestive tract which helps lead to improved digestive health AND added fiber can replace fats and sweets, and contributes to heart health.

My favorite part is that it only take about 5 minutes to whip up a smoothie for myself or the kids. Anything that saves me time AND is healthy is a winner in my book. For my Purple Monkey Smoothie I just combined green apple, a frozen banana, blueberries, and Sunsweet® PlumSmart® Light, in a blender. That’s it. They kids love it and so do I. It’s been my afternoon snack all week!

I’ve also added a handful of Sunsweet® Amaz!n Diced Prunes to my breakfast routine. They’re a great source of not only fiber but also Potassium, which may help prevent hypertension and stroke and play a role in helping support cell energy by regulating fluid balance, nerve impulses and muscle contraction to increase energy.
