The smoothie engineers at Jamba Juice soak torrid tongues with delicious nutrient-rich concoctions from an extensive menu void of artificial preservatives or trans fats. Each large smoothie (a $7.06 value after tax) packs a vitamin wallop that helps people to lead healthy lives and gives them enough energy for all of life’s challenges, from getting through the workday to jumping safely from a cellular tower into a nearby kiddie pool. Take tongues for a whirl with the Strawberry Surf Rider, a smoothie made with strawberries, peaches, Jamba lemonade, and lime sherbet, or pump your palate with a Peach Pleasure smoothie concocted from peach, banana, and orange flavors.

The heady smell of fresh spices and artisan cheeses, combined with antiqued wide-plank wood floors and exposed-brick walls, inspires fantasies of a neighborhood shop set in a Greek village.

Alongside his family and friendly staff, he imports oils and spices from fine Mediterranean distributers, as well as cheeses from Greece, Cyprus, Spain, and France. The Strip District fixture’s many offerings also include a catalog of olives, fine meats, and more than 30 homemade spreads with flavors such as asiago cheese and spicy feta.
