Profile Last Updated: April 09, 2008
Jugo, or “juice,” in Spanish, is a Canadian smoothie chain with several locations in downtown Toronto. Jugo Juice’s specialty is all-natural smoothies with no additives or fillers. In fact, every smoothie contains ¼ pound of real fruit! For those who want to turn up the healthy factor of their beverage, there are a variety of nutritional shots with herbs and vitamins like gingko, echinacea, ginseng and vitamin C to keep you going, boost your immune system, and keep you sharp. If you really want to show off, try adding a shot of wheat grass; one ounce has the same nutritional value as 2.5 pounds of leafy green vegetables, and is much more practical than drinking a broccoli shake.
Smoothies for Every Need
Jugo offers a selection of regular smoothies with tempting names like “righteous red,” (prepared with raspberries, strawberries, and vanilla low-fat yogurt), and “copa banana,” a blend of bananas, pineapple, tropical nectar and coconut. Low carb, and protein varieties are also available. In the morning, opt for one of the breakfast smoothies (made with oatmeal,) or a “buzz smoothie,” like the matcha green tea or banana flavour, which is made with iced coffee.
Light Sandwiches and Wraps, Too
While many of Jugo’s smoothies are like a meal on their own, a selection of light sandwiches and wraps is also available, like smoked turkey pesto panini sandwiches, and Mediterranean veggie wraps. Food is made fresh to order, and is designed to be filling, without weighing you down.
