Juice It Up! Menu Innovation Featured in Trade Publication


We stand out among juice franchises by exploring beneficial and delicious ingredients in our smoothies, bowls and fresh juices

A Vital Proteins® Blue Smoothie is captivating for a lot of reasons: it comes naturally in a pretty blue color, thanks to the nutrient-dense spirulina; the tangy blend of pineapple, lemon and mango — and it’s also packed with Vital Proteins Collagen to provide healthy support for hair, skin and nails.

Spirulina, a blue-green microalgae, has as much protein as peanut butter and is rich in Vitamin B complex, omega-3 and -6 fatty acids, iron, magnesium and many other nutrients besides. Spirulina is a new superstar in the juicing world, and Juice It Up! was among the first juice franchises to incorporate it into our smoothies and bowls, along with Vital Proteins. That’s one reason our Blue Smoothie was featured in Flavor & the Menu, a foodservice trade publication with a print circulation of 35,200 that covers all aspects of flavor and menu development.

Here’s an excerpt from the magazine’s article on functional drinks that include “wellness-promoting ingredients”:

Juice It Up!, a chain based in Irvine, Calif., that serves handcrafted smoothies and raw juice drinks, menus the Vital Proteins Blue Smoothie, featuring spirulina, Greek yogurt, pineapple, mango, lemonade and collagen… It makes reference to collagen’s “healthy support for your hair, skin and nails, and is full of extra protein.”

That protein call-out is worth noting as a new phenomenon in beverage, beyond the health-club world.
