With more than 700 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.
For those with heartier appetites, steel-cut oats steep in soymilk before being enhanced with toppings such as apples, cinnamon, and brown-sugar crumble. The lunch hour presents protein-packed mini wraps, toasted bistro sandwiches and California Flatbreads that pack only about 320?420 calories each.
Father-and-son team Liberato and Ricardo Garcia grew their family business into a local franchise rooted firmly in a passion for authentic Mexican recipes served in festive surroundings. To that end, the eatery takes its name from a joyous exclamation heard often in Mexico during lively nights on the town, when meeting a good friend on the street, or after successfully completing a high-five. This joie de vivre is evident in Ajuua’s colorful cuisine, from its guac-covered nachos to its top sirloin smothered in strips of bell pepper. Diners sip chilly margaritas as they tuck in to plates of bacon-wrapped prawns, sautéed pollo a la crema, or hearty chorizo con huevos.
