I happened upon this product quite by accident. I was running down the baby food aisle at the grocery store to the dairy department and saw the pouches on the shelf. Since I was always searching for organic fruits and veggies for healthy snack options, I decided to pick up one and read the ingredients. To my surprise, there was no sugar! Being a good portable pouch, I decided to pick up a few to keep in my purse for a quick snack. I had another surprise; I loved them. My kids thought I was a little crazy for carrying baby food around, since I was an adult, but I loved the convenience of a healthy snack.
My favorites were: -Happy Baby banana, beet and blueberry -Happy Tot sweet potato, apple, carrot and cinnamon -Happy Tot apple and butternut squash
I even tried them as fuel during a half marathon to see if I could “run” on them because I liked to try out different natural food choices. I used the banana, beet & blueberry which was a great combination because I actually set a new PR! (personal record)
While attending the expo before the half marathon, I came across the Happy Family booth. It was so funny to see them there at the expo for endurance athletes and not for babies! I was thrilled and now was able to let my kids know I wasn’t so crazy eating “baby” food.
Since then, the product line has expanded quite a bit and even includes a line for Grownups. I reached out to them and was supplied with a very generous selection of products to try.
Happy Morning Breakfast Smoothie 90
calories of organic ingredients including apple, banana, mangosteen,
whey protein concentrate, yogurt and quinoa to name a few. It had an
excellent texture and flavor you can squeeze and enjoy right out of the
pouch or in a bowl. I prefer it chilled for a snack or breakfast treat.
Available in two flavors: -Super Cinnamon with Pear & Raisins -Super Banana with Mangosteen
Happy Squeeze Fruit & Veggie Twist I
love the idea of mixing fruit with healthy veggies like kale. You can
really taste each flavor in the pouch, because there are so few
ingredients. Very smooth texture with a little crunch due to the
chia seed. Always organic ingredients and only 70 calories. I like to
snack right out of the pouch at room temp or add it to my protein shakes
for a little added flavor and vitamins.
Available in three flavors: -Twist Strawberry, Kiwi & Beet -Twist Blueberry, Apple & Purple Carrot -Twist Apple, Mango, Pear & Kale
Happy Squeeze SUPER When
I need a little something to keep me going at that mid-afternoon slump,
this is what I grab. It is great on its own or mixed into yogurt,
cottage cheese, or ricotta cheese for some added protein. An excellent
combination of high antioxidant vitamin C fruits and super grain salba.
(chia seed) I tried the Acai, White Grape and Apple combination. It
had a nice, lightly sweet taste without being overly sugary sweet, and I
experienced some texture from the Salba®. The SUPER chia helps give
this Happy Squeeze SUPER pouch significant levels of omega-3s (ALA) and
fiber. A win-win in my book!
Available in three flavors: -Super Acai, White Grape & Apple -Super Kiwi, Banana & Apple -Super Pomegranate, Bluebery & Pear
Happy Squeeze Coco What
is the hottest trend in food these days? Coconut! What a great idea
to blend fruit and coconut milk into a fruit smoothie, and its
portable! These are best chilled and make for a delicious, creamy
texture that’s great for an on-the-go snack. Just throw one in your bag
in the morning, and you’re good to go for the day. Also great to add
to your morning bowl of oatmeal or squeeze into your protein shake.
Available in two flavors: -Happy Squeeze Coco Strawberry -Happy Squeeze Coco Orange Mango
Happy Squeeze Treat
Happy Squeeze Treat is a delicious, guiltless dessert. At just 100
calories, you can feel good about satisfying your sweet tooth. Again
some great ORGANIC ingredients combined without any added sugar. I
LOVED the Caramel Apple Treat. You get a little more of a thicker
texture (thick applesauce) and a caramel flavor that would make anyone
enjoy their oatmeal. No more plain boring oatmeal for me. I love to
add a little and stir it in. Also great to use in baking recipes that
call for applesauce. And as always, great straight out of the pouch.
Available in two flavors: -Happy Squeeze Chocolate Pear Treat -Happy Squeeze Caramel Apple Treat
summary, I really love this company, their products and their organic
ingredients. Very minimally processed, BPA-free pouches, convenient,
nutritious, delicious, NO soy, NO wheat, NO GMOs.
