Nékter Juice Bar and Pitaya Foods Merge the Nutritional Power of Pitaya and Passion Fruit in a Summertime Menu Collaboration

May 22, 2024 // Franchising.com // COSTA MESA, Calif. - Nékter Juice Bar announced limited-time offerings in a collaboration with trusted and longtime partner, Pitaya Foods. The three new health-forward and vibrantly colored, limited-edition varieties include: Pitaya Passion Smoothie, Pitaya Passion Bowl and Pitaya Frozen Lemonade.

Nékter Juice Bar has worked with Pitaya Foods for several years to responsibly source organic pitaya directly from Nicaragua. Pitaya Foods is a pioneer in sustainable farming in Nicaragua and works closely with local farmers and communities there to grow premium-quality, organic and non-GMO superfruits.

Available from May 30 to July 31, 2024, at Nékter Juice Bar’s 210 locations nationwide, the three new menu items are realized in the brilliant colors of the tropics and will transport taste buds to a tropical paradise with an unforgettable flavor experience and an abundance of essential nutrients to nourish the body during long summer days and nights. Nékter Rewards members can get a sneak preview of the new menu items with digital-only early access beginning on May 23.

Each of the three new limited-time offerings were created to elevate the standard of healthy, delicious and clean eating:

  • The Pitaya Passion Smoothie is a blissful blend of Nékter’s housemade cashew milk, Pitaya Foods’ pitaya, passion fruit, strawberry, and a hint of agave.
  • The Pitaya Passion Bowl bursts with flavor and nutrition combining pineapple, Pitaya Foods’ pitaya, passion fruit, Nékter’s housemade cashew milk, agave, and topped with hemp seed granola.
  • The Pitaya Frozen Lemonade is a delicious and refreshing blend of Pitaya Foods’ pitaya, lemon and agave.

Pitaya, commonly known as dragon fruit, is a nutrient-dense, low-calorie powerhouse rich in antioxidants, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, magnesium, and fiber, plus beneficial plant compounds such as carotenoids and polyphenols. Like pitaya, passion fruit provides substantial health benefits to sustain and support a healthy lifestyle and is a rich source of Vitamins C and A, antioxidants and immune-boosting properties.

“At Nékter Juice Bar, we are always exploring new nutritious and flavorful ingredient combinations that cater to diverse tastes and dietary and lifestyle preferences, and we are excited to launch these three delicious menu items,” said Alexis Parra, co-founder and Chief Visionary Officer, Nékter Juice Bar. “We are so inspired by all that Pitaya Foods has accomplished around sustainable and responsible farming in Nicaragua, and how they support local farmers and help single mothers secure employment. This partnership between Nékter Juice Bar and Pitaya Foods not only underscores a shared commitment to quality and sustainability but also our promise to offer our guests an authentic and delectable flavor experience.”
