Heading Into Colder Months with Tropical Flavors


This post is sponsored by DOLE®. The opinions and text are all mine. 

As we head into the thick of fall there comes a lot of seasonal changes that impact how I feel, what can be done outside, and what foods are in season. I have really been trying to focus on my health and well-being and with colder months coming I will have to adjust some parts of my daily routine to ensure I’m giving myself the tools to succeed. 

One way I know I can help my mental and physical health is by focusing on making meals and having different drinks and snacks that I know have the best ingredients and are good sources of the nutrients I need. DOLE® 100% Pineapple Mango Juice has been a great addition to my weekly grocery runs and weekly meal plans. DOLE Pineapple Mango Juice is a tropical, sweet blend of pineapple and mango that invigorates your senses with every sip. 

DOLE Pineapple Mango Juice is great to have on hand because not only does it taste great but there’s no added sugar, so it will be refreshing without being over the top. It’s also a great source of Vitamin C, and non-GMO, which, as we enter cooler, darker months this will be huge for my mindset! 

I like starting my mornings with a tall glass of water and a glass of chilled DOLE Pineapple Mango Juice. It helps start my day on the right foot with water and a serving of fruit. 

The single-serve cans are also really handy to take with me on the go! I can throw a few in my bag and then I always have a nutritious pick me up whether I’m at the beach, on the train, or running errands. Recently I have been enjoying the single-serve canned juice along the Chicago Lake Front after a long walk. I cherish the still and quiet time of the mornings and giving myself extra time to sit, enjoy the sounds of the lake, and watch the city wake up around me. This is one of my favorite parts of the city and taking that extra time for myself really helped me clear my head and get ready for my week. 

Another way I will be implementing DOLE Pineapple Mango Juice this winter is in my morning smoothies. I love putting DOLE Pineapple Mango Juice, frozen fruit, protein powder, and chia seeds together to feel full in the morning. The tropical flavors paired with a hearty bagel or whole wheat English muffin help me feel balanced, full, and ready for the day. 

Since the cans are small and easy to take with me on the go, they’re also super easy to store! It’s a great item to load up on for the winter to have when you don’t feel like lugging yourself through the snow but still want to have a balanced diet. With single-serving cans, the juice won’t take up a lot of room in your fridge or go bad in a short amount of time, they are just the right amount! 

There really is not a bad way to enjoy DOLE Pineapple Mango Juice. These cans are easy to take with you on the go, store in your apartment, pack in your lunch, add to a smoothie, or even to a dessert recipe this holiday season! How will you include it in your daily life in the colder winter months? Tag me in your recipes and morning routines!
