Villa Enterprises Managementannounced Bananas restaurants have introduced a Green Smoothie that blends spinach, banana, vanilla nonfat frozen yogurt and a touch of honey.  The new smoothie joins the menu at all 37 locations today for a limited time. 

“Guests don’t have to feel guilty and can keep those New Year’s resolutions at Bananas by enjoying the new Green Smoothie filled with nutritious goodness,” says Andrew Steinberg, senior vice president of Business Operations, Villa Enterprises. 

Consumers today are seeking on-the-go nutritious, vitamin packed options. Keeping up with the growing trend, Bananas’ new Green Smoothie is packed with fiber, which can lower cholesterol and glucose levels, and keeps one feeling fuller for longer.  Plus, it’s a tasty way to get a strong dose of fruits and veggies, which provide the body with vital nutrients like vitamin A, vitamin C, foliate and potassium.

“With its numerous health benefits and great taste, Bananas’ new Green Smoothie is sure to be a popular menu item,” Steinberg, says.

Whether in a cone, cup, sundae or smoothie, Bananas uses nonfat frozen yogurt and fresh ingredients to make all their combinations. Real fruit smoothies and snacks, meal replacement options, nondairy fruit frosties, nonfat frozen yogurt sundaes, fresh squeezed juices, and a variety of natural snack offerings round out the menu. 

Villa was founded 50 years ago, and built its business on strict loyalty to authentic old-world recipes that Michele Scotto brought with him from Naples, Italy, in 1964. From the first pizzeria that opened in 1964 next to the Ed Sullivan Theater on Broadway in New York, to their Bananas restaurants, and more than 370 restaurants today, a commitment to quality food and genuine hospitality is still the hallmark of Villa.
