While America continues its obsession with all things pumpkin spice, Nektér Juice Bar is doing right by fall’s favorite fruit with four new delicious offerings that preserve the powerhouse nutrients to help boost immunity, energy and overall wellness. Available across the country starting on Monday, September 7, the new Pumpkin Almond Bowl, Pumpkin Spice Smoothie, Pumpkin Mousse Chia Pudding, and Pumpkin Superfood Oats menu items are made with real, whole and nutritious ingredients that are freshly made each and every day.
While pumpkins are classified as fruits, their incredibly high nutritional value rivals most vegetables. Low in calories, pumpkin is high in fiber, protein, antioxidants, and essential vitamins and minerals that can help optimize immunity, metabolism, heart health, and more. Yet, those nutritional benefits can be destroyed when the powerful fruit is ambushed by added sugars and other unnecessary ingredients.
“With America still quite passionate about pumpkin spice, at Nektér Juice Bar, we saw the opportunity to transform this flavor trend into something truly healthy,” said Steve Schulze, Co-Founder and CEO, Nektér Juice Bar. “We all enjoy a little indulgence now and again, but we want to challenge our guests to try more nutritious alternatives that really taste great and that will help them live life to the freshest. After all, shouldn’t pumpkin spice be everything nice?”
The Pumpkin Almond Bowl is a savory blend of pumpkin, banana, creamy coconut vanilla yogurt, almond butter, pumpkin spices and Nektér’s signature housemade cashew milk. Then it is topped with hemp granola, diced red apples, pepitas, and a dash of pumpkin spice. With 16 grams of protein and bursting with antioxidants, fiber and vitamins A and C, the new bowl is a perfectly satisfying meal for breakfast, lunch, midday snack or dinner.
Nektér’s Pumpkin Spice Smoothie is an energizing morning boost with a blend of pumpkin puree, bananas, dates, pumpkin spice, cinnamon, agave, and housemade cashew milk. Freshly blended, this immunity-boosting smoothie is an abundant source of fiber, iron, potassium and vitamins A and E.
Nektér has put a spin on their popular Chia Pudding line-up, adding a luscious Pumpkin Mousse into the mix. Perfect as a light and filling snack any time of day, the new Pumpkin Mousse Chia Pudding layers vanilla chia pudding made with cashews, dates, chia seeds and agave and housemade pumpkin mousse with cashews, pumpkin puree and agave, and then topped with hemp granola, pepitas and a dash of pumpkin spice.
Brand new to Nektér is Pumpkin Superfood Oats, a nutritional powerhouse made with high-fiber, high-protein steel cut oats, housemade pumpkin mousse, fresh fuji apple, pepitas, agave, and pumpkin spice.
