Jamba Juice EDSA Shang is Now Blending!

Best Blogger Tips
That's right guys! Another branch of my favorite smoothie brand, Jamba Juice, is now open at Shangri-la Plaza East Wing. It's in perfect timing too! The scorching heat of the summer sun makes me crave for ice cold fresh smoothie! 

I'm so honored and happy to have been invited to the pre-opening event which happened on April 24, 2013.

And what a treat! I was given this medium sized Berry Banana smoothie on the house! I chose this because I haven't tried this variant yet. I was curious why it is one of the bestsellers. 


It was my first time to try Berry Banana smoothie!
After a short break with that yummy smoothie, I was invited by the Jamba Juice Ambassadors for a tour and to blend my own drink! Yay! The person who taught me was Majoy! She is cute and perky! And she volunteered to take photos for me! Yay!

I never thought that I would be able to wear the Jamba Juice apron and cap! I so love it! It made me feel like a pro. LOL!

Majoy asked me to choose a drink on the menu. I was wondering whether I should pick a new drink to try or just go with my usual smoothie. My favorite of all favorites was the limited edition Berry Bitten smoothie, but it was not available on the menu anymore. In the end, I decided that it would be better for me to know how my current favorite, Strawberries Wild, is made. 

So many smoothies so little time...
The  first ingredient in Strawberries Wild is Apple-Banana juice (if I remember correctly). Now I know what those juices at the back of the counter is for.

Adding yogurt was next. I have forgotten what flavor it was... but it was the yogurt at the center of the picture below. It was so creamy! 

Yummy yogurts at Jamba Juice.

Next would be putting fruits! As I have made this smoothie by hand, I realized how fresh the ingredients are. Each fruit is frozen as hard as rock to preserve all the nutrients. As a result, I had a hard time scooping out the strawberries and bananas for my smoothie. 

These fruits are frozen to preserve all the goodness!

But of course! I just had to have a picture of me putting all these ingredients! I hope I get to do this again soon!

LOL! 
The fun part is next! Adding shaved ice! Pros at Jamba Juice toss the ice on air and then catch it! I wanted to try it too! But at first I failed. The kind staff offered me help! Yay! They toss the ice on air while I  catch it. I succeeded at the third try. I could have had put the shaved ice without a toss, but where's the fun in that? 

This is how they do it! Look at that ball of ice on air (near the light bulb).
Then it was time to blend everything! They must have awesome blenders for it to rip all those frozen hard-as-rock fruits!

Look mom! I used a blender!
Finally, I put in the final touches! Majoy taught me the art of transferring the smoothie to a Jamba Juice paper cup, and then the creative way of putting straw. There! It's done!

Putting the straw with a BIG smile!
Yay! I finally got to know how to make my own Strawberries Wild! The Jamba Juice ambassadors gave me a round of applause! Awww... so sweet of them! I would like to give a very special thanks to my partner Majoy! She is great!

Me and Majoy. :) 
My cup of Strawberries Wild, if I were to rate it with my critique self, was average. It's creamier and yummier when the pros make it.  I guess I need more practice, eh.

While enjoying my drink, Ms. Sharon T. Fuentebella, Managing Director of Jamba Juice Philippines, welcomed us to this pre-opening event. She told us about Jamba Juice's mission of bringing healthy food choices to the people. And that as you enjoy each cup, you also know that you are doing something good to your body. I couldn't agree more!

It was nice to see Ms. Fuentebella and the people behind Jamba Juice. I'm so happy that they brought this brand to our country. 

I explored the store afterwards. It's more than just smoothies! They also offer snacks, Jamba Juice items, and of course... my favorite free photobooth!

Healthy snack options available.

Oh look at those gorgeous items for sale... and that photobooth wall!
What makes Jamba Juice stores a standout among its competitors is the good vibes you get upon entering the store! They have friendly and cheerful staff! I feel so special and happy! Not only do I get to enjoy the drink, I get to have more positive energy from the people too! 

Smiles for me! 
They serve your drink with a smile!
Tasty smoothies, healthy food, free photo booth, and good positive vibes! There are a lot of things to like about Jamba Juice! Visit a store now to experience it! My favorite branches include Bonifacio High Street, Robinson's Midtown, SM Mall of Asia, and now... Shangri-la Plaza East Wing!
