Caribbean Passion Heats Up The Aisles

Nov. 9, 2011
Inventure Foods Inc. has rolled out a new flavor in its line of Jamba All Natural Smoothies. Caribbean Passion, a tropically inspired smoothie flavor, is a best seller Jamba Juice stores and can now be made by consumers in their own homes.

Phoenix-based Inventure Foods Inc. expands its successful line of Jamba All Natural Smoothies with Caribbean Passion, a best selling smoothie at Jamba Juices stores. A tropically inspired smoothie flavor, it combines mango, peaches, strawberry and passion fruit flavors to offer a convenient, better-for-you snack. Naturally low in fat and just 120 calories or less per serving, Jamba All Natural Smoothies contain real fruit and frozen non-fat yogurt that when blended with apple juice produce a genuine Jamba smoothie in the comfort of your home.

The smoothie, found in the frozen fruit section, features only natural ingredients and is gluten free. 

"Jamba All Natural Smoothies, are a great example of a better-for-you snack and perhaps the most convenient alternative I've seen yet for a fresh-made smoothie," says healthy family consultant Christy McFadden, MS, RD, CSO. "The kit contains real frozen pieces of fruit and frozen non-fat yogurt, so it offers the same great taste of a freshly blended smoothie, except the fruit preparation has been conveniently handled for you. All you do is open the bag, empty it into your blender, add apple juice and blend for about a minute and a half. What you end up with is a consistently great tasting smoothie that I believe has many of the health benefits of a fresh made smoothie, only it's much more suitable for those of us who are constantly on the go."

Suggested retail price is $2.99 - $3.49 per 8-oz bag, which makes two smoothies.
