CHEW THE RIGHT THING
Jamba Juice Matcha Green Tea Mist
GO FOR THE GREEN!
Don't let the peculiar color (alien green!) fool you; this slightly lumpy yet
insanely delicious treat from our friends at Jamba Juice tastes like a creamy,
green tea milkshake. The Matcha Green Tea Mist is an enlightened spin on
their higher-calorie Green Tea Blast, but there's not a chance you'll miss the
extra calories and fat grams. Made with sorbet, lower-calorie dairy base,
ice, soymilk & matcha green tea, it is the perfect velvety balance of icy and
creamy. The best-tasting of all of Jamba Juice's Enlightened
Smoothies, "The Mist" (our little pet name for it) tastes like a decadent
dessert. And with only 190 calories and no fat, feel free to indulge on a
regular basis. Weeeee!
Serving Size: 16 oz.
Starbucks Tazo Green Tea Frappuccino Blended Crème with Melon Syrup
Well, we give Starbucks credit for trying. Theyve shown a definite effort to
make some better-for-you frozen concoctions of late (good work on the
Tangerine Frappuccino Juice Blend, guys!). But this green tea catastrophe
doesnt quite cut it. Aside from the fact that it contains more than twice the
calories of Jambas version, it doesnt even taste as good. While Jamba
offers a creamy dessert-like smoothie, Starbucks' frap tastes more like
flavored milk. And if you slip up and say yes to the whipped cream they
offer (oops!), the nutritionals climb to an astonishing button-popping 550
calories and 15 grams of fat! Skip it...don't sip it.
Serving Size: 16 oz. (without whipped cream)
CHEW ON THIS:
Today, August 1st, is the start of National Peach Month. One awesome large
peach only has 60 calories, so celebrate often!
