Although I love the taste of a fruit smoothie, I realized long ago that it was better for me to eat whole fruit, than to drink a smoothie, which usually has a lot of calories and natural sugars. Consequently (and much to my daughter’s frustration), we don’t go to Jamba Juice much.
But now that this popular smoothie chain has come out with three new drinks, I might be changing my mind.
A recent news release announced a new line of fruit and vegetable smoothies at Jamba Juice:
Berry UpBeet – Strawberries, blueberries, carrots, beets, broccoli and lettuce
Apple ‘n Greens – Apple-strawberry juice with the juice of darky leafy greens, carrots lettuce, peaches, mangos and banana, plus a shot of spirulina
Orange Carrot Karma – Carrot juice, orange juice, mangos, banana and ice
I think it’s fantastic that Jamba Juice has modified their offerings to be better for us! As I drive by my local Jamba Juice, I can’t help but notice all the kids who play soccer, baseball, and dance lining up. Now, they (and their parents) will have a healthier option that includes both vegetables and fruits.
I just might have to stop there in the future and give them a try.
