I enjoyed touring the company, doing the demo and meeting everyone at the Yakult USA office.
The staff at Yakult enjoyed my 2 versions of Pink Smoothies, but they decided on a lighter version which also tastes great.
*Lighter version: 1 c ice or 3-4 ice cubes, 3 bottles Yakult in a blender. Cut 3-4 strawberries in the middle halfway up from bottom. Pour into margarita glasses, garnish with a strawberry on the rim of each glass. 1 bottle of Yakult contains 8 billion active Lactobacillus casei Shirota (friendly bacteria that improves digestion and enhances immunity).
