August 03, 2016 // Franchising.com // LOS ANGELES - Robeks Fresh Juices & Smoothies is bringing a taste of Brazil to its stores, just in time for the 2016 Rio Olympics. Flavors like acai, watermelon, banana and peanut butter combine to make healthy, delicious treats in our new limited-time-only Brazil’s Flavor Destination offerings, available through Oct. 2.
Brazil’s Flavor Destination gives every Robeks customer a taste of this year’s Olympics host with a mix of healthy and fresh ingredients that make you feel like you’re relaxing on the sunny beaches of Rio, no matter where you are. The refreshing and flavorful Brazilian Berry Smoothie™ is packed with fresh watermelon, açaí juice, frozen yogurt, pineapple and mango, along with fresh mint leaves to add a refreshing touch. Made with Zola açaí and fresh watermelon, the Amazonia Bowl™ is packed with pineapple and strawberry and topped with shredded coconut, banana chips, mango, chocolate-covered coconut, bee pollen and raw honey. Finally, we have the Nutty Rio Bowl™, also made with Zola açaí and fresh watermelon with a flavor that is interestingly enhanced by natural peanut butter, banana and strawberry. It is then covered with dried banana chips, granola, natural peanut butter, chocolate-covered coconut, bee pollen and raw honey.
Açaí has traveled beyond the borders of Brazil and become a household name known for its abundant antioxidants and other nutrients. Robeks prides itself on helping people eat healthier and was one of the first smoothie purveyors to use the açaí berry in its products.
“The acai berry has only grown in popularity as people recognize the great taste and health benefits. Combined with a refreshing and nutrient rich summer fruit like watermelon, we’ve come up with some great recipes that we’re really excited to have people try.,” said Robeks Director of Marketing Matt Furman.
At Robeks, menu items feature premium ingredients - naturally ripened fruits and vegetables that retain nutrients, live enzymes and natural flavor. They are always made fresh-to-order while the customer watches.
