All the juices we use at Blenders In The Grass are either freshly squeezed at our store or are blended from frozen pure fruit concentrate. We use frozen juice concentrates because they are superior to bottled or boxed juices. This is because frozen juice concentrates retain more of their natural vitamins, color, flavor, and enzymes than juices that are heat pasteurized and then bottled or boxed. All of the blended juices are 100% juice with no added sugars or preservatives
Fruit is an excellent source of simple and complex carbohydrates, dietary fiber, and various vitamins and minerals. At Blenders In The Grass we offer fresh fruit year round. However, to provide our wide selection of smoothies all year, some of our fruit will be frozen. The frozen fruit we use is individually quick frozen (IQF) to help maintain its nutritional value. There are no sugars, preservatives, or other additives added to our fruit.
In order to make our smoothies healthy as well as delicious, we choose our frozen dairy products with both taste and health in mind. Non-fat frozen yogurt is low in calories and is a concentrated source of calcium, protein, vitamin D, and some B vitamins. Ice milk provides a creamy taste but is significantly lower in fat content than ice cream (2-5% vs 10-25%). Sherbet, because it is made with non-fat and low-fat milk, provides flavor with a fat content which is only 1.5%.
