Maui Wowi now has a green smoothie!
Spinach is known as one of the world's healthiest foods, which is one reason why we incorporated it into the Green Smoothie recipe. A small size Maui Wowi® Green Smoothie has enough spinach in it to qualify as one full serving of vegetables. How do we know? The USDA says that 30 grams of spinach (1 cup) equals one serving of vegetables. We are over achievers in this area, because the Green Smoothie has 32 grams of spinach.
Did you know that spinach is grown in Hawaii? It is, but only on small farms. Hawaii only has two seasons - 'kauwela' (summer) with an average temperature of 85 degrees and 'ho'oilo' (winter), averaging 78 degrees. Spinach can only be grown during the chilly winter months in Hawaii when the temperature dips down to 78 degrees. Spinach will probably never be a big production in Hawaii, but it does grow.
You do not have to look very hard to see that green smoothies are popping up all over the country. Nutritionists say that this is not a trend. 'Green' is here to stay. One reason, they say, is because the liquid version of the whole vegetable retains the same nutritional potency and fiber, making it easier to digest.
The new green smoothie is one of the many flavors you can choose from when you book a smoothie catering job in DC, MD or VA. It's a great alternative for those that might be a little more health conscious. All of our smoothies are healthy of course - 100% natural, with no added colors, flavors or preservatives. They're 'onolicious!
