A while ago I introduced and shared with you a great source of the powerful Acai berry in an all natural smoothie from Arthur’s Fresh Company.

Arthur’s Fresh Company has been farming and making juices naturally, sine 1893! The company started as a small family run business out of Goderich, Ontario. The company prides itself on processing only the freshest, highest quality ingredients, with their ultra gentle processing system that maximizes both the nutrients and fresh tastes in their products. The company has an excellent reputation where true “health food” and consistent high-quality is concerned. However, the catch is that so far their products are only available in Canada.

Well aside from the amazing Acai Plus Smoothie, Arthur’s also makes many other fruit and vegetable combinations. Thus in this review I wanted to introduce you to and share with you 4 other varieties that are all equally delicious as they are nutritious!

In total Arthur’s has 8 varieties of smoothies and today I will share with you information about the following four: Mango Plus, Green Energy, Strawberry Rainforest and Pom Plus. You can read my review on the Acai Plus from before and perhaps in the future I will also review the Carrot Energizer, Very Berry and Goji Plus.

In terms of consistency, the smoothies are all very smooth and a little thicker. After all they are smoothies, so you cannot expect a juice like consistency.

In terms of taste the Mango Plus is exceptional as it really tastes like fresh mangoes. The Strawberry Rainforest is great, but not one of my favorites. The Pom Plus is very refreshing and tastes very much like one would expect from a fresh pomegranate. Finally, I most strongly recommend the Green Energy as it offers the most value for the price, it tastes great and has probably the highest nutritional density that most of us would need, plus it combines ingredients that may not be easy for some to find and/or combine.

Finally, I always encourage home made smoothies, as then you have full control of using organic produce and what you put in and how you prepare it, but if one is on the go, these are an excellent natural and healthy option to reach for.
