Jamba At-Home Smoothies Introduces New Red and Blue Fusion + Giveaway

Jamba At-Home Smoothies
jamba-new-fusion

If you would have told me years ago that I would like vegetables, I would have said you were crazy.  Growing up my parents could never get me to eat them and honestly I still don’t like eating cooked veggies at all.  However, with these Jamba At-Home Fruit and Veggie Smoothies, I am able to get the nutritional value from vegetables in a super delicious way.

blue-fusion

The new flavors of Jamba® At-Home fruit and vegetable smoothies include Red Fusion and Blue Fusion.  They are made with whole frozen fruit such as dark cherries, strawberries and blueberries and paired with vitamin-rich vegetables such as purple carrot, sweet potato and spinach.  They are gluten-free, dairy-free and only 130 calories (or less) per 8 oz glass.  Plus they contain 100% of the recommended dietary allowance of vitamin C, 40 percent of vitamin A and 25 percent of vitamins D, E, K, B1 and B6 with each 8 oz serving.

red-fusion

I absolutely LOVE both of these new flavors just as much as I love the green fusion (which I reviewed HERE).  They are so sweet and you really do not taste the vegetables at all.  If I had to pick my favorite, it would be the blue fusion which has such a delicious blueberry flavor.  I also really like how easy they are to make.  Just pour the frozen contents from the bag into your blender, add 8 oz of fruit juice (I always pick apple) and blend.  THAT’S IT !!!  They are perfect for a quick breakfast or mid-day snack (or really they are great any time of day).

You can find these at grocery and mass merchandise stores nationwide for a suggested retail price of $2.99 – $3.99 (Publix sells them for $3.39 reg price but they go on sale quite often).
