With more than 845 locations, Jamba Juice proves to the masses that nutrition can be speedy and delicious. Since the beginning, the company’s product philosophy has revolved around choosing whole fruits and other natural ingredients over artificial flavorings, sweeteners, and preservatives. The menu is completely free of high-fructose corn syrup and trans fats, and it offers additional accommodations for vegan and gluten-free diets.
This naturalistic approach is fully realized in Jamba Juice's selection of smoothies. Made with 100% fruit juice, sherbet, and frozen yogurt, the frosty delights range from all-fruit smoothies such as Peach Perfection and Strawberry Whirl to more indulgent creamy treats, including Peanut Butter Moo'd, an enticing blend of peanut butter, bananas, nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt, and milk chocolate. The lunch hour presents toasted bistro sandwiches and Artisan Flatbreads that pack only about 320–420 calories each.
In addition to providing healthy eats to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative fights childhood obesity while encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to getting kids active—which they can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.
There's one thing that unites all of the eclectic offerings at Margot's Cafe, from the waffles and bacon to the house-made ice cream: the entire menu is gluten-free. The cozy spot takes pains to accommodate diets of all sorts by not adding MSG into any of its dishes, grating cheese in-house to avoid gluten-heavy additives, avoiding the use of peanuts, and preparing vegan dishes as well. Customers can make use of the cafe's WiFi while sipping on coffee, nibbling a sandwich, or indulging in a fresh dessert.
You won't find any sugar packets at Red Apples Juice Bar. That's because the bar sweetens its trademark drinks with freshly cut fruit and, for those with an especially active sweet tooth, honey. Juices and smoothies incorporate entire fruits and vegetables into delicious combinations, including orange, grape, strawberry, and kale. Daily specials highlight a rotating roster of drink flavors, as well as a vegetable soup such as zucchini and corn or cream of carrot.
Coffee in Motion’s baristas brew cups of Millars organic, wood-roasted, fair-trade coffee beans to create gourmet drive-thru coffees and espressos. At the Mission Street location, a cherry-hued bus serves caffeine-seeking patrons around the clock, as the café's 24-hour schedule allows patrons to flout legally mandated naptimes. Along with coffee, the staff serves up a full menu of real fruit smoothies, fresh pastries, and toasted bagel sandwiches with a choice of toppings. For tea drinkers, locally brewed My Chai teas awaken sleepy patrons and incite their heart rates to soar like Amelia Earhart's pet falcon.
