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.
At Rice Paradise, the gluten- and preservative-free signature rice cakes are culled from a European recipe and are all homemade. The culinary crew tops each batch with fresh fruit or nuts, and sticky-sweet sauce, such as chocolate or strawberry. They also craft rice pudding from scratch in flavors such as tiramisu and chocolate chip cookie dough. To give guests a true break from their daily grind, the eatery's walls are splashed with ocean blue and lined with seashells and starfish, and the countertops are fronted with bamboo and topped with tropical plants.
Early each day, the cooks at Mady's Deli & Cafe assemble more than 40 fresh ingredients for their salad bar, chopping up juicy tomatoes, crisp cucumbers, and other organic vegetables as they bubble up pots of hard-boiled eggs on the stove. They gather fresh mozzarella and cheddar cheeses, lay out bowls of plump raisins and crunchy sunflower seeds, and craft batches of homemade dressings such as blue cheese, mandarin-orange vinaigrette, and fat-free Italian. Throughout the day, the cooks fold these mostly organic ingredients into customized salads, inviting diners to pick out greens, toppings, dressings, and astrological signs for their unique creations. When not building salads, the chefs slice up a variety of specialty sandwiches, layering crusty rolls with pastrami, roast beef, and grilled chicken. They also extend their culinary expertise to homemade soups and specialty entrees, such as baked lamb and stuffed cabbage. As the cooks busy themselves in the kitchen, their guests can relax beneath colorful umbrellas on the front patio with a cold glass of wine and beer.
Origami Food replenishes pantries with fresh groceries, produce, and organic specialty items. Customers can raid the shelves for wholesome oils and seeds, or stock up on spices, herbs, and dressings to add flavor to everyday foods or an astronaut friend’s idea of dinner. Customers can also browse a selection of potables, from organic green teas and coffees to fruity drinks.
Much like it's parent company, DeliverLean, OnJuice Bar aims to provide healthy and tasty food, quickly and conveniently. Located at the Aventura Mall, OnJuice Bar provides a grab-and-go alternative to DeliverLean's meal delivery service. OnJuice even offers complete DeliverLean meals in addition to the array of snacks, sandwiches, salads, smoothies, and organic juices that they have become known for.
To ensure they're getting the most nutrients out of the locally sourced, organic, seasonal fruits and vegetables used in their cold-pressed juices, the "juiceologists" behind OnJuice Bar rely on a highly specialized process. They first clean the produce with filtered water, grind it in a special juicer, place?the resulting pulp in a microfiber bag, and slowly apply two tons of pressure to extract the vital vitamins and minerals. The unpasteurized?juice?is then strained and poured into glass bottles by hand.?Each bottle contains up to two pounds of fruits and vegetables.?
The?juices then travel to OnJuice Bar or are delivered straight to customers'?doorsteps. They can be?used as part of a cleanse regimen?to reboot the body or help detoxers lose weight for such a momentous occasion as a wedding or driver's license photo renewal.
Though it specializes in the juices, OnJuice Bar also helps clients embrace a healthier lifestyle with its fresh smoothies, milks, tonics, soups, and freshly prepared raw foods.?
