You know, as connected as the world is today, it’s amazing that traditional food ingredients are still making their way to the United States. 20 years ago who’d heard of açaí? And 10 years ago kale was just a decoration covering the ice on a salad bar.
As much as we love the traditional taste of strawberries and blueberries, we’re always interested in introducing Greeley to something new. So, let’s take a look at a few more interesting ingredients from our smoothie restaurant.
Pitaya – You might know this fruit by a different name — Dragon Fruit. Or maybe you don’t even know it by that name, because it’s certainly not something you’ll find next to the apples in most grocery stores.
Echinacea – Echinacea is a member of the daisy family, and the leaves, roots, or flowers of this plant are used to make echinacea extract. Many people believe that Echinacea works well against the common cold, and some people take it further to suggest that it has other curative properties.
Watermelon Juice – If you don’t think that watermelon juice is a weird ingredient, try this…go to your local grocery and try to buy some. No luck? That’s because watermelon juice isn’t something you can just pick up, but we have connections and it makes a wonderful addition to our juice smoothies. Plus, watermelon is rich in lycopene, a phytochemical most often found in tomatoes that has all sorts of health benefits.
We hope you try something new when you visit our fruit juice bar in Greeley. We can toss just about anything you want together in our blender or we have many tried-and-true options from our Inta Juice Menu. Stop by soon!
