Maui Wowi Hawaiian Coffees & Smoothies
In 1983, Jeff and Jill Summerhays began concocting smoothies with fresh fruit and nonfat yogurt to avoid the temptations of unhealthy snacks. The couple sold their creamy, natural beverages on their travels across the US and Australia's Gold Coast, planting a taste for then-exotic flavors such as passion papaya and pina colada. Still blended to order in each of Maui Wowi's 400 locations, each smoothie brims with a whole fresh banana, live yogurt cultures, and a straw so mouths can burn calories with each slurp. On the steamy side of the menu, Kona beans pour in from Hawaiian farmers and roasters to be brewed into rich drip coffee and pressed into potent espresso shots.
