The Jamba Juice Juju – Drink, Eat and Live Healthy!

 

On a hot Sunday afternoon, the brood visited the JAMBA JUICE (JJ) store in Alabang Town Center.  The place was full of weekend customers happily lounging, chatting ,and some ,surfing the net.  We were warmly greeted by Marketing Manager James Ranada and the entire enthusiastic crew of JJ.

 

IT ALL STARTED WITH A BLENDER

The brand had modest beginnings in California  and was brought to  Manila on November 11, 2011. Ever since , it has built a strong Filipino following and continues to attract customers with its healthy lifestyle philosophy.

The Weekend Crowd – The store is a place to relax, hang-out, surf and play!
My little R had fun stacking Lego bricks in the play area.

 

CHOICES!

JJ- Menu Board

DRINK UP! – Customers can order any of the following smoothies : Classic, Pre-boosted, All Fruit and Creamy .

At first,  the menu board overwhelmed us .   (Admittedly,  we have seen several  JAMBA JUICE stores in Los Angeles, but it is only back here in Manila that the family and I had the opportunity to try the products. )  So many drinks to choose from and everything looked so good!  My son M was the first to make up his mind.  His choice – the creamy smoothie CHOCOLATE MOO’D.

 

MAKE  YOUR OWN SMOOTHIE

The kids got very excited when they were told that they can make their own smoothies!  M and R were both given aprons and caps, made to wash their hands and then off they went to create their drinks .

JJ- fun Behnd the Counter

With the aid of Danni, M poured chocolate concentrate, scooped yogurt, caught ice and blended his smoothie. Little sister R (with Tin) learned the ropes as she watched from the side.

 

JJ- In the Mood for Chocolate

The crew and the crowd cheered for Kuya M as he successfully created his own all all natural, healthy smoothie!

JJ Chocolate Mood Smoothie

So chocolate-y good, you’ll never think it’s a healthy drink!  M finished two ! (Small serving – 430 calories)

 

I, on the other hand,  chose their  classic smoothie – the bestseller BANANA BERRY.  James told me that this particular drink accounts for 70% of their daily sales.  Can’t wait to try!

JJ- Banana Berry Smoothie!

Made with bananas, strawberries, blueberries and raspberry sherbet. I give this a DD for Delightfully Delicious! (Small serving 270 calories)

JJ- BQP Smoothie

Top (Right) – Boosters (C and Zinc, Energy, Ant-Oxidant, Soy Protein and Vitamin) are added to your drink at your request.
Middle (L-R) -Hard Pack yogurt/ sherbet and fruits (quick frozen to lock in the taste and nutrition)
Below – The kids and I enjoyed the whole experience!

 

DELICIOUSLY GOOD FOR YOU!

All the drinks are made of natural ingredients.  There are no sugars, no artificial flavors , no trans fats and no preservatives.

JJ- Philosophy

The Good Stuff!

JJ -Razmatazz

The hubby ordered this classic smoothie made of mixed berry juice, strawberries, bananas and orange sherbet. Ever so slightly tangy but still thirst quenchingly good!

LATEST OFFERING

JJ - Fruit and Veggie Smoothie

The BQP tried a small serving of this too.  The TROPICAL HARVEST Smoothie is a good choice for people on a diet.

THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH IN YOUR DRINK

Acai is a small berry harvested in the Amazon forests. These small berries have powerful antioxidants  that cleanse the body  of free radicals.  James told me that the farmers who harvest the berries have hands that look five years younger than their faces.  With that anecdote, I said ,  “One LARGE Acai Supercharger please!!!” haha 🙂

JJ-ACAI Smoothie

Juicing has become so famous in America that they substitute meals (breakfast and lunch) in favor of the blended juices. But what about a drink that is healthy AND can make you look younger?!!! Of course, the BQP had to try it!

 

THE CEREAL FINALE 

 We were made to try the steel-cut oatmeal , and boy, was it super- duper GOOD! This is definitely a must-try for all of you!

JJ- Oatmeal

THE LITTLE DIVA AND I LOVE THIS!!! There’s a crunch to the oats and the topping of berries and sugar crumble closes the deal. Will come back for more!

 

JJ- we love jamba

The kids had a fantastic time during our first store visit. We barely made it out of the door when M told me, “When will we come back, Mom?”

 

ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS AND WIN JJ GIFT CERTIFICATES

1.   What is the name of the superfruit that is full of antioxidants?

2.  What Jamba Juice drink would you like to try and why?

 

WHY THE BQP RECOMMENDS JAMBA JUICE

Oftentimes our go-to beverages are calorie-ridden sodas and artificially flavored juices.  We even pack the latter as part of our children’s snacks for school.  I like JJ because it’s a healthy alternative to the sugar-loaded drinks.  Furthermore, I went behind their counter, saw how clean and fresh the ingredients were and even made my own healthy drink.  Taste was never compromised in all of the smoothies I tried.

So what are you waiting for readers? Head on to the   nearest JAMBA JUICE. store! Let’s all drink, eat and live healthy!

    This is truly a healthy choice for smoothies. I feel guilty everytime I drink other smoothies even if you have the option to choose for the sugar level. Moreso, when you serve them to your kids. Thanks BQP!

    My kids are certified smoothies fans. With the usual high-fructose content of syrup concentrate of other brandsI know though they can’t have too much of the “good thing”. It’s good to know that there’s a better alternative in Jamba Juice. My son says he wants to try Banana Berry Smoothie what with al those berries in it. Personally, I would love to try the Acai smoothie…the “fountain of youth” tagline got me!

    Thanks for the info, BQP!

    Acai is the superfruit with antioxidants. I’ve always been curious about Jamba Juice but never got the chance. I definitely like to try the tropical harvest fruit because I am watching my calorie consumption (LOL) and the picture of it is mouth watering!!! I also would like to try their banana berry. Because I love the combination of bananas and “erries.”
