Trend-Setting Summer Juices

Trend-Setting Summer Beverages

The beverage category has well-evolved from the days of dispensable soft drinks and is booming with opportunities for creativity and profits. Consumers are expecting vibrant, cutting-edge, and health-forward creations. Summer is the perfect season to consider refreshments that will meet these demands and have customers coming back for more.

When it comes to nourishing beverages, raw juices continue to be a consumer favorite. As you look to add healthy, functional ingredients to your juice blends, be ready to think beyond the typical greens. There is a wide variety of trending ingredients that not only boast health benefits but add incredible depth of flavor. For example, turmeric is rich in antioxidants and has grown 176% on menus in the past four years. Try a refreshing spin on the popular golden milk by utilizing turmeric in our Golden-Mandarin Coconut Juice. For a less adventurous flavor profile, try making a juice with fresh beets. This vitamin-packed root vegetable brings vibrant color to our Peary Beet Juice.
