New Blended Meal Replacement Smoothies
Three Varieties of Super Blend Smoothies are Perfect for Nutritious-Conscious Kama’aina Who Are On-the-Go
Honolulu – Kama’aina know their smoothies and are accustomed to a healthy variety of fruits and vegetables in their diet. Now, they can get it all in one of three new, blended smoothies debuting at Jamba Juice Hawaii this week. The new Super Blend Smoothies are a blend of fresh ingredients that provide the protein, fiber and healthy fats, yet low levels of sugar, to deliver an ideal, nutritious meal for people on-the-go.
“When blended, fresh ingredients are more easily metabolized in the body,” said Donna Yano, VP of Jamba Juice Hawaii. “These smoothies are a wholesome and nutritionally balanced drink that will make you feel great, leave you full and satisfied and provide the protein, fiber and other nutrients healthy bodies need.”
The three new Super Blend Smoothies are:
- Apples ‘n Charge™ is a blend of apples, bananas, pumpkin seeds, Greek yogurt, milk, cinnamon and honey. This smoothie has a creamy texture that is fruity and delicious, yet it meets the standard for a meal. A small smoothie is 360 calories, includes two servings of fruit and contains 23 grams of protein and five grams of fiber.
- PB ‘n Jealous™ is a blend of fresh berries, peanut butter, whey protein, milk and chia. This smoothie is a favorite twist on everyone’s Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich. A 16-ounce smoothie includes five servings of fruit and is an excellent source of protein, calcium, Vitamin C and fiber. A small is 360 calories and includes 20 grams of protein and eight grams of fiber.
- Green Up ‘n Go™ is a blend of cucumber, apple, spinach, grapes, Greek yogurt, pumpkin seeds and lemon juice. This smoothie will make you power through the day with blended whole fruits and vegetables and a perfect balance of protein and fiber. It includes 1.5 servings of fruit and 2.5 servings of vegetables in a 16-ounce cup. A small smoothie is 260 calories and includes 14 grams of protein and seven grams of fiber.
Many nutrition experts have touted the benefits of blending. The new Super Blend Smoothies offer a convenient and delicious way to access this healthy eating option. These smoothies also provide a good portion of the recommended levels of protein and fiber. The average man should get about 56 grams of protein and 38 grams of fiber each day. The average woman should get about 46 grams of protein and 15 grams of fiber. The Super Blend Smoothies™ were added to Jamba’s national line-up at the first of the year, and will be offered in all 36 Hawaii stores beginning the week of January 23rd.
