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.

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.

In addition to providing healthy eats to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors ?Team Up for a Healthy America." The initiative fights against childhood obesity while encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to getting kids active and involved by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.

A warm cup of premium-roast coffee ($1.45–$3.95) blankets shivering stomach lining, and a take-home quart of Maroon Bells' ice cream ($6.95) can accompany midnight viewings of homecoming cows.
