mySmoothie: My New Favorite Drink on United

United has really improved their BOB offerings over the last year. Adding tasty salads and sandwiches, vegetarian options, enhanced snack boxes, and premium alcohol has made UA the leading domestic legacy carrier when it comes to onboard dining in Economy, with the possible exception of Continental, which still offers complimentary meals on many flights.

My new favorite UA BOB product is mySmoothie, offered on most flights over two hours. The Swedish smoothies are tasty and healthy--often a hard combination to find. I have tried a variety of flavors and recommend the raspberry smoothie if you have a choice. For $3, you can't go wrong.

Kudos to UA for offering healthy food and beverage options, particularly the highly-addictive smoothies!

are you sure they are THAT healthy? IIRC I've read a report on how much sugar they contain

They are truly very healthy! mySmoothie is a true fruit smoothie, a blended drink made of whole fresh fruit and berries with absolutely no added sugar (only natural sugar contained in the fruits), no preservatives nor additives. Check their website.

They are definitely healthy, if they have sugar, it is only the natural one, the same you have when you eat any fruit. I can't stop drinking them, I bought them in NYC and drink one every morning, sooooo gooood!

@Florian: Estrella took the words right out of my mouth!

I really love these smoothies. I was on a flight from Chicago back to NY and was thrilled to see this new addition to the beverage choices. This is definitely the best smoothie I've ever tried.

I really like these smoothies too...if you can get them. would love to know where to buy them in retail. I've had other similar smoothies but these smoothies are the best I've had.


I saw them for sale at a snack stand in the Continental gate area at Newark airport last night (not that that helps too much).

Di Bruno Bros. in PHL also sells them, IRRC.
