It's easy to access the extensive line of Dole Fresh Frozen Fruits for popular fruit flavors and beverage recipes with the database on to create signature versions of this year's top restaurant beverages.

According to consumer market research firm The NPD Group, consumers are purchasing smoothies, iced tea, and frozen soft drinks based on value and quality.

They're spending more for perceived benefits–"refreshing," "better flavors," and "healthier," for example–and choosing beverages that blend the familiar with the new.

To keep restaurants in tune with their customers, Dole offers recipes with this kind of wide appeal, including Sweet Cherry Limeade, Chocolate-Dipped Strawberry Smoothie, Pineapple Lemongrass Thai Tea, and Pineberry Freeze.
