Red Mango Frozen Yogurt & Smoothies Awesomeness

Sooo I had a really cool thing happen recently. I was contacted by someone who offered to have my try some Red Mango smoothies since they are in the middle of promoting their Red Mango SuperBiotics Smoothies Summer. What the heck is Red Mango?

I had no idea what it was until I moved to Seattle. Apparently they don’t have them in San Diego. Sorry, you SoCal peeps are missin’ out! Red Mango is a Frozen Yogurt chain and they just happen to have smoothies too. Apparently, they are the fastest growing retailers of all-natural frozen yogurt and fresh fruit smoothies. They just launched 22 new super biotic summer smoothies geared towards four different categories:

  • Body Balance: Flavorful and functional yogurt smoothies formulated with beneficial boosts
  • All Fruit Harmony: Dairy-free and soy-free smoothies made only with fruit, juice and ice.
  • Twisted Fruits: Their signature yogurt smoothies offered in new and innovative fruit-forward flavors.
  • Just Kidd’n: Natural snack-sized fruit and yogurt smoothies made for the kiddos

Now, I am a froyo junkie. Like seriously. It’s my lifeline. Hubs thinks I am crazy because I would have NOOOOO problem having froyo for a meal. But goodness gracious the smoothie I tried was da bomb dot com. My favorite part? It was only 150 calories for a regular size. Thank you sir, may I have another.

My coworker and I went to Red Mango on our lunch break to try out the smoothies. It just so happened to be about 85 degrees out so it was the PERFECT day for it. Apparently, other people had the same idea because it was packed!


We both ordered the Mango Melody smoothie but we got yogurt put in it so we gained all the SuperBiotic benefits.


For those of you with dietary constraints, Red Mango is also introducing a brand new line of smoothie boosts that have been formulated to meet the nutritional and dietary needs of today’s health-conscious consumers who find it increasingly important to embrace a wholesome, well-balanced diet. In addition to the protein, energy, immunity and multivitamin boosts currently available, Red Mango has added four new boosts which have been formulated with natural, wholesome ingredients:

  • Metabolic Fit 360™: A proprietary blend of protein, calcium and African Mango which supports metabolic balance and promotes healthy weight management.
  • Dark Chocolate Mate: Finely ground, Brazilian roasted maté and dark chocolate; a delicious, rich, low-calorie flavor which also supplies a nice dose of antioxidants.
  • Tropical Hibiscus: Finely ground, premium Nigerian hibiscus blossoms infused with natural pineapple and lychee; a bright and tropical low-calorie flavor and antioxidant boost.
  • Green Tea Acai: Finely ground, premium green tea with açai berries, the Amazonian superfruit; a low-calorie antioxidant boost made with the best ingredients.

20130717-171802.jpgAnother cool thing, they are offering Club Mango double points July 15-19, 2013. Every registered and opted-in CLUB MANGO member will receive double points for every eligible purchase they make in a participating Red Mango location from July 15-19, 2013. Club Mango points add up and can be redeemed for products at participating Red Mango stores. You’ll receive a $2 reward just for signing up, and for every 500 Mango Points you earn you’ll get a $5 coupon! Earn that free yogurt, peeps!


Clearly, I hated it.

The fine print:
This was a sponsored post for Red Mango. All opinions are my own. And I could seriously use another smoothie right now.

Skinny Tuesday

Last nights workout:

Rest day!!

Call me out of shape, but I am SO sore from helping hubs wash his car yesterday. My ass. My arms. My shoulders. Looks like someone needs more cross training in their life.


Happy fat skinny Tuesday everyone! I really don’t get the point of this ‘holiday.’ Is it even a holiday? It is just an excuse to go out and get sloppy on a work night? Sign me up! Just kidding. I leave play time for the weekend like a good little computer geek.

Instead of getting fat today, I decided to have a skinny day! I stuck to a very basic diet today. No chips. No candy. No chocolate. I kicked my weaknesses to the curb today.

Let’s see if the scale agrees with me in the morning…

In other news… I got my magic bullet!! And no, that is not a sex toy, you perv! Goodness gracious am I gonna get some spam comments with this post or what?! Anyways, I made my first creation!!


Very basic smoothie. Nothing fancy yet. I need to order some Greek yogurt and spinach from amazon fresh so I can make green monsters! This absolutely delicious creation was:

Frozen mango
Frozen strawberries
Frozen pineapple
Orange juice

Lessons learned:
Don’t use ice if you are using frozen fruit.
Don’t stuff the fruit to the top and use very little liquid unless you want a smoothie the consistency of ice cream.
Mango completes me.

I bought a bag of frozen mixed fruit from target. Have I mentioned that I love that place?! It is perfect because I don’t risk the fruit going bad before I can use it all!

In other random news…

I am in love. With a pair of shoes. Omg I am absolutely LUSTING after these babies:


Someone convince me that I NEED these in my wardrobe. Or better yet, tell hubs so I don’t have to buy them myself. Any takers? No? Ok, back to lusting it is.

Ok enough randomness for one day.


Did you get fat or skinny today?

And seriously, tell me I will die if I don’t give those shoes a proper home.
