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 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 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.
On a hot summer day, the interior of Mr. Smoothie & Frozen Yogurt Bar looks a bit like paradise. Staff members man blenders whirring together non-fat yogurt and a choice of two fresh fruits into their signature smoothies, allowing customers to cool off with treats that are refreshing, healthy, and able to put out a very small fire. Everything made at Mr. Smoothie is customizable, and guests can opt to pare down the sweetness by only drinking freshly squeezed juice or creating fruity freezes from the same juices blended with chunks of real fruit. Eleven flavors of coffees are used to make frappes, with skinnier versions available for those desiring less calories and more protein. In fact, staff members can add a range of supplements and boosts to any smoothie or drink, adding ingredients that build muscle or nutrients that aim to improve hangovers.
The name Maki Cafe might be a bit misleading. Yes, the restaurant's chefs wrap delicate slices of fish and vegetables in sticky rice, but that's not their only gig. They also steep ramen or udon noodles in steaming bowls of broth, which they top with succulent meats, such as pork belly and salmon teriyaki. Signature entrees include Rock Crab, light fried jumbo short shell crab coated with spicy, sweet, and tangy sauce and Miso Salmon, which is choice cut salmon marinated in miso and baked with seasonal vegetables.
Maui Wowi enlivens parties and events with Hawaiian-themed party rentals and treats including frosty fruit smoothies, coffee drinks both hot and cold, and snacks.

For independently wealthy third-graders and others unable to bartend themselves, the company offers bartending service from Hawaiian-shirt-clad specialists. They can mix drinks for every audience, including kona coffee, cappuccinos, and frozen coffee drinks, as well as fresh-fruit smoothies with or without alcohol in flavors such as piña colada, mango orange, and strawberry-banana daiquiri. All drinks, like the daughters of the Beach Boys, come with Hawaiian parasols.
South Block Smoothie & Wrap Co. draws from a lengthy menu of flavors to blend a wide assortment of fresh, vitamin-packed fruits and juices. Organic açai berries swim with mango and strawberries in the Amazon Smoothie’s pool of passion-o-guava juice, and the Bluenana Chill fuses together the rich nutrients and fashionable color schemes of bananas, blueberries, and non-fat raspberry sorbet. Soymilk and non-fat vanilla frozen yogurt perform their best hula dances to impress chocolate-tinged Hawaiian coffee in the Kona Mocha. A diverse mix of health-enhancing additions come swirled into booster smoothies such as the Peanut Blast, an amalgamation of bananas and peanut butter with an extra protein kick from 10 grams of whey or soy. Brand new, South Block scoops its nutrient-rich nectars from within a sleek, glass-fronted corner storefront.
