I had picked up the pink lemonade version and since it was so good, I decided to try out the Minute Maid Light 15 Calories Light Mango Passion Fruit Drink. I adore mango passion fruit mixes (yogurt, juice, etc.) so I was hoping this wouldn’t let me down.
I do want to mention you have to shake this bad boy up. It has a bit of “settlement” on the bottom when it’s been sitting in the fridge untouched.Shake it up and you’re good to go. The juice is absolutely delicious. It is sweetened with aspartame which may be a determent for some.The artificial sweetener isn’t a no-go for me, so I did enjoy this. It’s probably one of the best guilt-free juices I have had. It’s a perfect blend of mango and passion fruit.The only thing that could make this better would be a tropical beach, warm water and a little umbrella in my icy beverage.
A serving is 1 cup (8 fl. oz) which calculates out to be 0 points plus.You can have up to 1 ½ cups (12 fl. oz) for 0 points plus, but if you’d like 2 cups (16 fl. oz) it would be 1 points plus. Certainly a great bang for your buck!
Have you tried any of the Minute Maid light drinks?
When spring and summer roll around there is nothing better than a nice cold, ice filled glass of lemonade.Now, lemonade is typically packed with sugar and unnecessary calories, especially for something you’re only drinking and not getting and fullness out of. I typically rely on Crystal Light for lemonade flavors or even flavoring up my plain ole water.
I’ve been eyeing the Minute Maid Light Pink Lemonade at Target for nearly 2 months now. I kept thinking “it’s juice, not worth it.”Well, I saw a post on Instagram about it and found out it’s actually VERY points plus friendly.You get a nice pink lemonade flavor that’s not overly sweet but not overly tart, nice and smooth. A serving is 8 fl oz (1 cup) and it’s 0 points plus values! Now if you wanted two servings 16 fl oz (2 cups) it would be 1 points plus values. Not bad at all especially for those folks who love Starbucks drinks. You could pour 16 ounces into a to-go mug and have a very friendly beverage.
There are additional flavors available at select retailers but to see a full listing of all the light juices available you can check it out on the Minute Maid website: http://www.minutemaid.com/light-juice-drink/. I do need to get my hands on the Mango Passion
