Leading Smoothie, Bowl & Juice Chain Expands Superfruit Product Line with New Powerhouse Ingredient
Irvine, CA (RestaurantNews.com) Say “Hello!” to summer with Juice It Up!’s new Superfruit Sunrise Smoothie and Bowl, on menus now through August 30! One of the nation’s leading handcrafted smoothie, raw juice, and superfruit bowl chains, Juice It Up! is continuing its “Superfruits of the Amazon” celebration by adding the powerhouse ingredient acerola superfruit (ac·?er·?o·?la) to the brand’s growing line of functional superfruit products for a limited time. The immune boosting Superfruit Sunrise is the brand’s most vitamin C packed LTO yet, with over 10x more vitamin C than an orange… that’s 810% of your recommended daily value!
A nutritionally dense ingredient known to boost immunity, aid in heart and eye health and regulate digestion, acerola is a superstar ingredient, and Juice It Up! is the first major smoothie and bowl chain to introduce it to its menu. Along with its many health benefits, the Superfruit Sunrise also caters to a variety of dietary lifestyles and limitations including vegan, gluten free and dairy free.
“Since opening our doors nearly 25 years ago, Juice It Up! has been shining the spotlight on its many functional products and ingredients, helping our discerning guests make educated menu selections based on their personal wants and needs,” said Chris Braun, Juice It Up! CEO. “Acerola joins our growing lineup of superfruits, alongside açaí and pitaya, allowing guests to further customize their bowls and smoothies with their personal health levels and wellness goals in mind.”
The Superfruit Sunrise is a refreshing blend of acerola, fresh ginger, orange juice, ripe banana, passion fruit juice, and tangy pineapple that will energize the body and senses. Available as a satisfying smoothie or, as a delicious meal replacement, a hearty superfruit smoothie bowl topped with the guest’s choice of more than a dozen nutritious toppings. Juice It Up!’s fulltime nutritionist and innovation team are always hard at work researching the most beneficial ingredients and dreaming up new products that not only taste great but also support guests’ healthy, active lifestyles.
Available through August 30, the Superfruit Sunrise will be featured on Juice It Up!’s menu alongside fresh-squeezed raw juices, blended-to-order real fruit and veggie smoothies, and nutrient-rich bowls loaded with superfood ingredients such as acai, pitaya, spirulina and collagen. With the brand’s fan favorite smoothie bowls, guests can transform their favorite classic and specialty smoothie into a nourishing meal replacement, topped with three ingredients of their choice and a drizzle of honey. With new boost and topping options including goji berries, chia seeds, hemp plus granola and cacao nibs, there are more customizable options than ever before! To supercharge any bowl or smoothie, Juice It Up! offers a “Make it Green” option by blending in raw kale and spinach to add an extra dose of fiber, vitamins and minerals.
Braun continued, “and while what you eat should taste great, at Juice It Up! we believe it should also serve you nutritionally, which is why we design every product with equal parts flavor and function in mind! We’re proud to be the first chain of our size to offer guests this unique superfruit that is jam packed with vitamins and antioxidants.”
