Delicious smoothies, juices and bowls made from such superfoods as acai berries, dragon fruit and blue spirulina sweetened with pineapple, blueberries, banana and other fruits are a phone call or click away. Eat in; carry out; third-party delivery.
You may know Pure Green’s handcrafted specialties from their Princeton location in the Mercer Mall. Building on their success, owners Theresa and Nick Centofante have opened a second branch at 2 Summit Square, Unit H (off the Newtown Bypass, across the parking lot from Giant). Monday – Saturday, 8:00am-8:00pm, Sunday 9:00am-7:00pm.
Unfamiliar with superfoods and not sure about smoothies? Try before you buy. Just ask the helpful counter staff for a free sample. You’ll find out what happy customers already know: healthy food is not only delicious, but it makes you feel great!
One of the most popular offerings is the classic Pure Green smoothie, made-to-order from spinach, kale, mango, banana, pineapple and coconut water. The tropical fruits give it a flavor even kids will like, and the leafy greens deliver a terrific nutrition punch.
For something completely different, how about a chocolate mousse smoothie? It may sound like dessert, but it’s a nutritious combination of raw cacao, avocado, banana, grass-fed whey protein, coconut butter and almond milk. Pure Green also offers cold-pressed, high-pressure bottled juices in 12 flavors including watermelon, ginger, beet, coconut, grape and ginger.
Also on the menu: acai bowls (six varieties), avocado and nut butter toast, and oatmeal (with the emphasis on “meal”). If you are dieting, you can replace a meal with one of these satisfying, filling creations.
