Robeks Fresh Juices & Smoothies is bringing a taste of Brazil to its stores, just in time for the 2016 Rio Olympics. Flavors like acai, watermelon, banana, and peanut butter combine in the new limited-time-only Brazil’s Flavor Destination offerings, available through October 2.
Brazil’s Flavor Destination gives every Robeks customer a taste of this year’s Olympics host with a mix of healthy and fresh ingredients that make you feel like you’re relaxing on the sunny beaches of Rio, no matter where you are. The Brazilian Berry Smoothie features fresh watermelon, açaí juice, frozen yogurt, pineapple, mango, and fresh mint leaves. Made with Zola açaí and fresh watermelon, the Amazonia Bowl is packed with pineapple and strawberry and topped with shredded coconut, banana chips, mango, chocolate-covered coconut, bee pollen, and raw honey. The third new addition, the Nutty Rio Bowl, is also made with Zola açaí and fresh watermelon with a flavor enhanced by natural peanut butter, banana, and strawberry and covered with dried banana chips, granola, natural peanut butter, chocolate-covered coconut, bee pollen, and raw honey.
Açaí has traveled beyond the borders of Brazil and become a household name known for its abundant antioxidants and other nutrients, and Robeks was one of the first smoothie purveyors to use the açaí berry in its products.
“The acai berry has only grown in popularity as people recognize the great taste and health benefits,” says Matt Furman, Robeks director of marketing. “Combined with a refreshing and nutrient rich summer fruit like watermelon, we’ve come up with some great recipes that we’re really excited to have people try.”
At Robeks, menu items feature naturally ripened fruits and vegetables that retain nutrients, live enzymes, and natural flavor.
