With summer being here, I’ve been taking more and more days off so I can spend time w/ my little BFF. She only goes to work 2 days a week now and it’s been awesome having her home! We seriously never run out of fun and silly things to do with each other — she’s the best! But with this never-ending heat wave we’ve been experiencing in the Boston area there is only so many things we can do. I mean, we’ve done the museums / movies / library 1,0000 times already and as much as we love the beach it’s almost too hot to go bake in the scorching sun. So what’s a girl to do? Well, these girls go shopping!
We spent the morning at our fave mall and had so much fun walking around in the AC while doing a little shopping. And of course we had to make a stop at Sephora — my girl loves sitting there and getting made up all sparkly & pink. Ahhh, be still my heart! 🙂
So after working up quite the appetite from all our ‘hard work’ we decided to go check out Jamba Juice thanks to the awesome that I joined who provided me with a GC. Isabella is on a totally smoothie kick lately so this was the perfect option — healthy, delicious, and quick. Plus I’ve never actually visited Jamba Juice so I was excited to check it out and see what all the hype was about. I was expecting a little kiosk in the middle of the mall, but it’s actually a pretty good sized store and it’s super cute w/ all kinds of bright decorations and wicked friendly staff.
While waiting for our smoothies, I had Isabella do a little informal photo shoot. Yes, we probably looked like total weirdos posing in Jamba Juice, but we had fun!
Isabella ordered the “Jamba Kids Berry Beet It” with only 190 calories plus dairy & gluten free (luckily she has no allergies and she’s a little girl so we obviously don’t count calories, but just in case you were curious!) and I had the “Tropical Harvest Smoothie” which is only 230 calories and dairy / gluten free. Both smoothies were wicked good – like seriously delicious! Honestly, I wasn’t sure if my little chocoholic would go for a smoothie made with beets, but she didn’t even notice and she happily drank the whole thing. I snuck a little taste and it was really delicious — sweet, but not in a sickening sugary kind of way. My Tropical Harvest Smoothie was soooooo delicious, all it really needed was a little umbrella and I could’ve been on a tropical island, ha ha.
We also ordered the Kid’s pizza turkey roll which Isabella planned to share with me, but decided it was too good and she needed to eat it all. Of course her eyes are bigger than her stomach so she only ate 1/2 of it and I got to finish it — totally delicious!
I am probably supposed to tell you the following:
Only 8% of Americans achieve their recommended target for fruit in an average day.
Only 6% of individuals meet their recommended target for vegetables in an average day.
1% adults and 2% kids meet both the fruit and veggie recommendations each day.
But I don’t think we need to get into all those details because all you need to know is that you have to get your booty to Jamba Juice ASAP! Like seriously, I promise you won’t regret it — the prices are very reasonable and more importantly the smoothies are deliciously made from only real, whole fruit and vegetable juice with no added sugars and every smoothie is made-to-order. Mmmm, I am craving a Jamba Juice smoothie now — off to the mall we go! 🙂
