Getting the daily recommended amount of vegetables in my diet is hard. I ask for extra lettuce and tomatoes with my Burger King Whopper, but apparently that’s not enough. Actually, to be honest, I don’t know how much vegetables I’m supposed to be eating each day. Well, thanks to Jamba Juice and their new Fruit & Veggie Smoothies, it’s going to be a lot easier for me to get my veggies and get them in a suckable form.
Each Fruit & Veggie Smoothie provides three full servings of fruits and vegetables in a sixteen size serving. They come in three flavors — Berry UpBEET, Apple ‘n Greens and Orange Carrot Karma. Berry UpBEET combines strawberries and blueberries with the juices from carrots, beets, broccoli and lettuce. Apple ‘n Green brings together apple-strawberry juice with the juice from dark leafy green vegetables, carrots and lettuce. It also includes spiraling, peaches, mangos and bananas. Finally, Orange Carrot Karma blends carrot juice, orange juice, mangos, bananas and ice.
The new smoothies are excellent sources of vitamin A and vitamin C, and they don’t contain HFCS, artificial flavors, and artificial preservatives. Complete nutrition facts below:
