Robeks Fresh Juices and Smoothies, known for its best-in-class products, has debuted three new Fitness Smoothies made with maple water, a unique specialty water extracted from the raw sap of maple trees.
The new limited-time-only items reflect the track record of Robeks as a trailblazer in the juice and smoothie industry.
Maple water is made from water that naturally flows through maple trees in the spring. Farmers tap the trees to draw the water, which in its raw form is roughly 98 percent water and 2 percent sugar. The organic maple water used in Robeks menu offerings is micronutrient-infused, antioxidant-rich, and a great hydrator.
The three Fitness Smoothies are designed to complement the body’s needs before and after working out. They come in small, medium and large servings and are available at Robeks stores across the country only until June 15.
Maple water is not widely produced and is only available for a short time — while the spring sap is running in the maple trees.
“We’re staying ahead of cutting-edge trends in healthy eating at Robeks, and many times we have a hand in creating them,” said Chad Bailey, Chief Marketing Officer at Robeks. “We are especially pleased to introduce our three new workout-focused Fitness Smoothies made with maple water.
“We expect the interest in maple water will continue to grow because this wonderful specialty water has so many great attributes,” Bailey added. “It’s an ideal ingredient for Robeks smoothies. Not only is maple water naturally delicious; it’s low-calorie and low-sugar. Our culinary team has hit it out of the park with these three delicious Fitness Smoothies.”
Research from the University of Rhode Island found maple water contained at least 34 compounds that could be beneficial to human health, including five not previously seen in nature. Maple water is also known for its sustainability because it is not necessary to destroy trees in order to extract the water.
