OREANDA-NEWS. August 17, 2016. Jamba Juice Company (NASDAQ; JMBA), a leading lifestyle brand with a passion for making healthful living fun, today announced the launch of a new line of Protein Smoothies, allowing guests to get their regular serving of protein in a convenient and great-tasting way. Jamba Protein Smoothies are packed full of protein and made of delicious ingredients, including real fruit, and are fortified with calcium, riboflavin and phosphorus.

Each smoothie contains at least 28g of protein and makes an ideal pre- or post-workout snack or a mid-day "pick-me-up". The new line of smoothies includes:

  • Cookies and Cream Protein: Made with real cookies, this creamy treat packs a protein punch.
  • Chocolate Protein: Jamba's famous "chocolate moo'd" gets blended with whey protein and banana. The perfect high protein pick-me-up.
  • Peanut Butter and Banana Chocolate Protein: Protein-rich peanut butter blended with bananas and whey. An incredible protein rich treat for any time of day.

Diets high in protein offer a variety of benefits, including: curbing carb highs and lows, accelerated calorie burn, fueling fat burning while preserving lean muscle and promoting muscle repair and growth. Jamba's new line of Protein Smoothies provides guests a delicious way to power up on protein. 

"Jamba Protein Smoothies are a perfect way to refuel and regain energy," said tennis superstar and Jamba franchisee

Venus Williams. "My daily workout is often two hours of intensity and a protein-based snack or beverage afterwards is essential. These new Jamba smoothies are the perfect solve for my fitness needs and delicious, too."
