Fresh Juices Arrive at Bananas Smoothies & Frozen Yogurt

Consumers worldwide continue to express growing interest in maintaining a healthy diet, yet many find themselves busier now than ever before, while struggling to find healthy snacks and meal replacements that can be enjoyed on-the-go. With fresh-squeezed juices quickly becoming a favorite, Bananas Smoothies & Frozen Yogurt®, the quick-service brand known for serving real fruit smoothies, is proud to be answering the demand for an affordable, accessible and delicious option by introducing a variety of fresh squeezed juices at its locations across the country.

The juices, which are available now at all participating locations nationwide, are fresh squeezed in store at the time of each order and are made with 100% pure fruit and vegetable juice. Fresh produce is sent through the juicer with no additional sugar or additives included, providing consumers with a naturally delicious product. Consumers are given the option to choose from one of five preset fruit and vegetable blends, each of which boasts its own health benefits, or a choice of the simple, classic favorites to be enjoyed on their own – Orange, Apple, or Carrot. Additionally, consumers can build their own juice blend from the available fruits, vegetables and add-ins available in-store.

“We are thrilled to have found another way to help our customers ‘juice up’ their days,” said Andrea Carella, brand manager for Bananas Smoothies & Frozen Yogurt. “Juicing is a great way to sneak a full serving of fruit and vegetables into your diet, but it can be so time consuming, messy and expensive. We’re happy to have found a way to make this trend easier and accessible to everyone.”

The new juice options include:

CLASSIC DETOXIFIER—Apple, Carrot, Ginger

PURPLE POPEYE (Heart Healthy Blend)—Spinach, Apple, Beet, Cucumber

BEET BOOSTER (Immunity Blend)—Beet, Orange, Apple

LEAN GREEN (Weight Loss Blend)—Kale, Spinach, Apple, Cucumber, Parsley, Ginger

ZEN GOODNESS (Relaxation Blend)—Apple, Carrot, Ginger, Beet, Lemon

Bananas Smoothies & Frozen Yogurt’s fresh-squeezed juices join their lineup of real fruit smoothies, fruit frosties, nonfat frozen yogurt sundaes, and assortment of natural grab-and-go snacks. The customizable menu model offers guests the option of choosing a delicious smoothie or frostie from a list of classic flavor combos, which can be made dairy-free upon request, or creating their own by combining fresh ingredients and adding a nutrient rich boost.
