Fruit Smoothies Made with Whole Fruit–No Added Sugar!
Long ago I dated a man who called me from payphones while drinking Jamba Juice and sharing sunsets. Sure, it was romantic, but I wanted to know more about this Jamba Juice. At the time, we didn’t have them in Utah. He would describe the flavor of his Jamba Juice that day and my taste buds would drool!
Then, Jamba Juice came to my hometown. I couldn’t wait to try the frozen deliciousness of their fruit smoothies.
Veggie and Fruit Smoothies Help America Get their Daily Allotment of Fruits and Vegetables
I’ve been a fan ever since, trying almost all the deliciousness packed into the cup. Now, Jamba Juice has added a Tropical Harvest Smoothie to their line of smoothies. It’s Jamba’s response to the alarming findings from a recent study* conducted by Produce for Better Health Foundation on America’s consumption of fruits and vegetables.
- Only 8 percent of Americans achieve their recommended target for fruit in an average day
- Only 6 percent of individuals meet their recommended target for vegetables in an average day.
- 1 percent of adults and 2 percent of children meet both the fruit and veggie recommendations each day
As a Moms Meet Ambassador, I was able to try Jamba Juices Tropical Harvest. I really enjoyed the new flavors. The Apples n’ Greens was my favorite!
Jamba’s Fruit & Veggie smoothie line promises one serving of vegetables and two servings of fruit plus less than 250 calories per 16-ounce cup. They’re blended-to-order and made from only real, whole fruit and vegetable juice–no added sugar.
