It’s finally happened, Jamba Juice has come to Metro-Detroit! It’s been almost 30 years since Jamba Juice opened their first store and only in the last year have they finally made it to Michigan. There are a couple stand alone stores in Ann Arbor and Canton (re-opening soon), and a few locations in local Meijer stores. But the Jamba Juice that have opened under the radar and unless you’re local to the stores you may not have heard about the openings.
I was first introduced to Jamba Juice in the early 2000’s while visiting California and fell in love with the chain then. With their fresh smoothies, unique blends and custom treats – it’s easy to see the appeal. For years, Jamba Juice was a treat for me whenever I visit someplace in California or take a trip Chicago which until recently was the closest location. Now with the new location opening this weekend in Southfield, getting my Jamba Juice fix is easier than ever – especially with a drive thru window!
All of the drinks are blended with whole ingredients and are loaded with nutrients. You can choose to go with blends that are perfect for working out, some to kick start your day and others that are a bit more on the decadent side. All of the drinks don’t contain pumps of additives, no purees and no turbinado. You can expect whole fruits and veggies in your drinks.
One of the best things about Jamba Juice is every drink or bowl is completely customize-able. If you have food allergies, or just don’t like a certain ingredient, each drink is made to order. Nothing is pre-made, so it’s easy for Jamba Juice to make your drink or bowl to order. Being gluten free can be hard some places but not at Jamba Juice. With the exception of the drinks containing cookies or the bowls with granola, everything is gluten free. You can even pick up Kind or protein bars that are made with whole ingredients for a healthy snack for later. What do you get if you’re gluten free, don’t like bananas, ginger, mango or papaya? You get a PB Chocolate smoothie without banana and substitute in strawberries. You end up with a delicious smoothie that tastes like chocolate covered strawberries!
Welcome to Metro-Detroit Jamba Juice! We’re glad you’re here and we’ll be visiting often!
