Juice It Up!, one of the nation’s leading raw juice bar and hand-crafted smoothie chains, announced it is currently testing the Pure Açaí Bowl at its California State University, Northridge (CSUN) location. The star of this item is Sambazon’s new machine that quickly produces 100 percent pure Açaí out of a tap. The Açaí berries are crushed cold and “stirred” to the perfect consistency and texture, which is chock full of protein, healthy omegas, powerful antioxidants, and fiber. To complete the bowl, the Pure Açaí is topped with organic hemp granola, fresh bananas and a drizzle of honey.
“Juice It Up! is constantly searching for ways to make our products even healthier and more convenient, and incorporating Sambazon’s Pure Açaí machine into our operation is a perfect example of this,” says Frank Easterbrook, Juice It Up! president and CEO. “We’re catering to guests with busy, on-the-go lives, making the CSUN campus an ideal test location for this innovative piece of equipment. We’re confident our Pure Açaí Bowl will become a popular natural energy boost for students and faculty to grab quickly between classes.”
The Pure Açaí Bowl is priced at $7.99 and is currently testing at CSUN’s Juice It Up! location only. This location also features Juice It Up!’s entire menu of fresh-squeezed functional raw juices, blended-to-order real fruit and veggie smoothies, and nutrient-rich bowls loaded with superfruits Açaí and Pitaya. With the recently introduced Smoothie Bowls, guests can transform their favorite Classic and Veggie Smoothie into a nourishing meal replacement, topped with fresh bananas, granola and a drizzle of honey. To supercharge any bowl or smoothie, guests can ask to “Make it Green” by blending in raw kale and spinach to add an extra dose of fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
