Costa Mesa, CA (RestaurantNews.com) Nékter Juice Bar, the next-generation juice bar experience that offers a delicious, authentic and ingredient-centric menu of freshly crafted juices, superfood smoothies, acai bowls and more, starts the spring season with a fresh and healthier take on PB&J and new line of refreshing “Nékter Freshers.”
Nékter’s new PB&J Trio features a PB&J Bowl, PB&J Smoothie and PB&J Chia Parfait, each with a better-for-you twist on one of America’s longtime favorite flavor combinations. By combining the flavors of natural peanut butter with Nékter’s cashew milk made in-store daily and its new housemade strawberry chia jam, Nékter has been able to capture the flavors and benefits that Americans know and love while removing highly processed ingredients, fillers and artificial flavors.
The PB&J Trio will launch on National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day on April 2 when Nékter’s Rewards members have the exclusive opportunity to order the new items on Nékter’s app. On April 7, all guests will be able to order the offerings in-store or through the app.
Nékter Freshers are a fresh, healthier take on today’s more common and traditional iced beverages. They start with a blend of certified organic and non-GMO teas or limeade and add in slices of fresh lemon, orange, or strawberry. Featuring a Strawberry Green Tea, Mandarin Cardamom Tea and a Pitaya Passion Limeade, Nékter Freshers are a low-calorie, hydrating, and flavorful option for all of Nékter’s loyal fans.
Like all of Nékter’s menu items, the PB&J Trio and the Nékter Freshers are made-to-order and contain no artificial flavors, hidden fillers, or unnecessary ingredients for maximum nutritional impact and benefit. All of the new items will be available for a limited time only until June 1, 2022.
“Spring is always a fantastic time for us at Nékter Juice Bar with all the seasonal veggies and fruits coming to bloom,” said Alexis Schulze, co-founder and chief visionary officer of Nékter Juice Bar. “This year, we have really enjoyed unleashing our team’s creativity around our new Nékter Freshers while celebrating PB&J, a mainstay in American kitchens for decades, by making them the Nékter way.”
