November 17, 2017 // Franchising.com // SANTA ANA, Calif. - Nékter Juice Bar, leading the way in the authentically fresh, clean and nutrient-rich juice bar movement, celebrates the season with a trio of guilt-free holiday indulgences. Available from November 20 through December 24, Nékter brings back its popular Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie, and introduces two new flavors of its deliciously healthy Skoop frozen treat, Merry Mint and Pumpkin Spice. As with all of Nékter’s menu offerings, these three, flavorful holiday treats are exceptionally satisfying yet made with clean ingredients and absolutely no preservatives, additives or dairy.
“Keeping healthy during the holidays doesn’t mean sacrificing the most delicious and iconic flavors of the season,” said Steve Schulze, co-founder and CEO, Nékter Juice Bar. “Nékter Juice Bar’s three new seasonal offerings capture all the flavors we crave but also provide our bodies with incredible nutritional benefits so we can enjoy a healthful holiday.”
Tasting like Christmas in a cup, Nékter’s Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie is a creamy and nutritious blend of refreshing peppermint and energizing cacao, plus fresh spinach, dates and housemade cashew milk. Unlike other high-sugar options found during the holidays, this smoothie helps increase energy and decrease stress, a perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of the season.
Recently introduced, Skoop by Nékter is a guilt-free, dairy-free and soy-free twist on a decadent frozen treat, made fresh each day with creamy cashew milk and clean, plant-based ingredients. The limited-edition Merry Mint flavor is an enticing blend of cashew milk, pure cocoa, honey, coconut sugar, agave nectar, sea salt, and candy cane bits for a sweet and satisfying taste of the holidays. The new Pumpkin Spice Skoop captures the quintessential taste of the season, made with pure pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices, cashew milk, Tahitian vanilla, honey, coconut palm sugar, coconut butter, agave nectar, and a pinch of sea salt.
Guests can choose to pair the new, seasonal Skoop flavors with two gourmet waffle bowls from The Konery, a Brooklyn-based purveyor of premium, artisanal waffle cones made without dairy, eggs or preservatives. The Red Velvet Waffle Bowl is the perfect complement to Merry Mint Skoop, while the Gingerbread Waffle Bowl pairs deliciously with Pumpkin Spice Skoop.
