While cold-pressed Kale juice may be ubiquitous in NYC and L.A., it seems like the rest of the country hasn’t yet gotten the memo.
In a recent poll sponsored by Jamba Juice and YouGov of 2,200 Americans, 32% reported that green juices are the ones they like the least, and 28% flat-out fear the sight of them.
What’s more, according to a 2013 USDA report, Americans aren’t getting even half of the recommended daily servings of fruits and vegetables they need – juice or no juice.
“We weren’t surprised when we learned that one-third of American adults, especially Millennials, say they are consuming more vegetables in juice than they did 10 years ago—but the fact is, they are still not consuming enough,” said Julie S. Washington, senior vice president and chief brand officer of Jamba Juice. Green juices are a quick and tasty way to get in your produce for the day and it’s way more convenient to drink three cups of greens than it is to eat them.
There is, however, a glmmer of hope for green drinks: Jamba Juice reports that the Kale-ribbean Breeze™ smoothie, which contains kale blended with mangos, passionfruit-mango juice, nonfat Greek yogurt and chia seeds, is the number one best-seller in the juice chain’s Whole Foods Nutrition line.
