Santa Ana, CA (RestaurantNews.com) Nékter Juice Bar, the Southern California-based lifestyle restaurant concept that has redefined the juice and smoothie space by offering only a clean and nutritious menu, will debut Simply Strawberry, the first seasonal variation of its widely popular Skoop frozen treat. Introduced in June 2017, Skoop is a dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, and entirely satisfying and nutritious scoop of indulgence. Simply Strawberry will join the immensely popular Chocolate Bliss Skoop at 46 participating restaurants in California, Arizona, Texas, and Utah on August 1, 2017.
Made fresh daily in small batches to ensure freshness and consistency, each Skoop flavor is a proprietary blend of plant-based ingredients, and completely free of refined sugars and artificial colors and flavors. The new Simply Strawberry is the perfect combination of strawberries, Tahitian vanilla, cashew milk, honey, coconut palm sugar, and agave nectar with a pinch of sea salt. Guests can choose to personalize their Skoop with various toppings including coconut flakes, vegan chocolate chips, chocolate drizzle, fresh strawberries, fresh blueberries, cacao nibs, hempseed, or gluten-free granola. Skoop is affordably priced at $4.25 with a choice of three toppings for an additional $1.00.
“Since its launch in June, Skoop by Nékter has been an undeniable success offering the ideal blend of nutrition, indulgence and satisfaction by the scoop,” said Steve Schulze, Nékter’s co-founder and CEO. “Our new Simply Strawberry Skoop is the epitome of the essential summertime treat, similar to a sorbet, bursting with flavor and packed with nutrition. It’s the healthy way to satisfy your sweet tooth this summer.”
While strawberries have long been considered the flavor of summer, they are also nutritional powerhouses. Low in sugar and calories, strawberries provide essential nutrients, dietary fiber and phytochemicals, and are packed with antioxidants and Vitamin C. They are also vital to collagen production.
Simply Strawberry will be available through Labor Day Weekend when a sensational new seasonal flavor of Skoop will be introduced just for fall. To learn more about Skoop and view a list of participating locations, please visit www.nekterjuicebar.com/pages/skoop.
