Every day at more than 770 locations, Jamba Juice proves that good nutrition can be both convenient and delicious. Since the beginning, the company has based its philosophy on choosing whole fruits and all-natural ingredients over artificial flavorings and preservatives. The menu is completely free of high-fructose corn syrup and artificial trans fats, and it makes additional accommodations for vegan and gluten-free diets.
Although Jamba Juice is serious about using wholesome ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate. Whole fruits and veggies can be blended into an extensive menu of great-tasting smoothies and freshly squeezed juices. But Jamba Juice?s commitment to keeping healthy eating simple informs its solid-food options, too. Customers can kick-start their morning with a steaming bowl of slow-cooked, steel-cut oatmeal, or stay energized throughout the day with six varieties of Energy Bowls: nutrient-rich blends of whole fruit, Greek yogurt or soy milk, and an assortment of dry toppings and fresh fruits.
In addition to nourishing and energizing the human body, Jamba Juice fights childhood obesity by sponsoring Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative encourages 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.
Don't you dare mistake Leilani Shave Ice's frozen creations for snow cones. They're far more unique than that. Unlike snow cones, authentic Hawaiian shave?that's shave, not shaved?ice starts with a base of vanilla, macadamia, chocolate, mint chip, or strawberry ice cream. Upon that creamy foundation, staff pile ice that has been shaved down to a super-fine powder and sweeten it with a variety of tropical syrups in flavors such as blue raspberry, red watermelon, and orange dreamsicle. Even then, the delicious flavor layering isn't finished. Staff still need to add a final flourish in the form of toppings like condensed milk, chocolate or caramel syrup, or mini marshmallows.
