Although Dannon just settled a massive lawsuit with the FTC for making false claims about the health benefits of probiotics, we hear that Jamba Juice hasn’t lost faith in its ability to aid digestion. Fitperez.com claims that the whole-fruit smoothie chain will be offering a new line of drinks called Probiotic Fruit & Yogurt Blends in 2011.
The new smoothies are to feature nonfat yogurt, soy milk, whole fruit and a probiotic boost, to foster the growth of healthy microorganisms in the digestive system.
Jamba Juice’s probiotic smoothies will initially be offered in three flavors: Vibrant Blueberry, Thrivin Mango and a probiotic version of their already popular Strawberries Alive. Vibrant Blueberry will blend strawberries and blueberries, while Thrivin Mango will combine mangoes with peach a passion fruit.
What do you think? Do you want a probiotic boost in your smoothie?
