The other morning I rushed out of the house only to figure out two things…
1. I did such a good job rushing, that I was actually 30 mins early. (I was on “late” shift!)
2. I was hungry, and hungry for a green smoothie!
Fortunately for me, I recently looked up the fruit & veggie smoothies that Jamba Juice now carries, and there is a Jamba Juice very conveniently located right on my way to work. As it turned out, they’re not all that busy at 7:30 AM. I mean, I’ve never stepped foot inside a JJ before, so I don’t know what their normal wait time is like, but there were just a couple of FAU student types getting their drinks when I came in. (FAU campus is directly across the street.)
I went with the Apple ‘n Greens, because it seemed to me the greenest of the three options. Ingredients: Apple-Strawberry Juice, Green Vegetable Juice (Carrots, Spinach, Bell Pepper, Kale, Spirulina, Lettuce), Peaches, Mangos, Bananas, Ice
It was kind of pricey for such a small cup’s worth, but it really hit the spot. And it wasn’t too sweet, as I’d imagined it would be. So I was thoroughly satisfied. I highly recommend trying one if you find yourself in need of a green smoothie and away from your supplies to get the job done.
They have two other flavors too, if you’re new to the idea of drinking fruits with vegetables…
Berry UpBEET™ Ingredients: Strawberries, Blueberries, Mixed Berry Juice, Red Vegetable Juice (Carrots, Beets, Broccoli, Spinach, Kale, Lettuce), Mangos, Ice
and the least threatening, with NO green at all…
