Following a vegan diet shouldn’t be difficult these days. There are many shops that cater to all kinds of customers including vegans. Pulp Juice & Smoothie Bar, with over 40 locations, is on a mission to give just what every customer is looking for. This article will talk about the options vegans like you have on their menu.
Pulp Juice & Smoothie Bar serves juices, smoothies, wrap sandwiches, salads, and wheatgrass. Each of the items on the menu includes fruits or vegetables which makes each serving healthy. Not everything in the store is vegan-friendly. However, you can personalize your order and tailor-make it for your vegan diet.
It is possible to make a mistake in choosing the perfect combination of ingredients. So, to help you stick to your vegan diet, read on for a guide to Pulp Juice & Smoothie Bar’s menu.
Pulp Juice & Smoothie Bar offers smoothies in seven categories and different sizes. To enhance the creaminess in each cup, the store adds something from the selection of honey, yogurt, orange sherbet, raspberry sherbet, and pineapple sorbet. Sorbet is made from two main ingredients, fruit, and sugar. Pulp Juice & Smoothie Bar confirmed their pineapple sorbet is vegan. Though it is far from being equivalent to ice cream, sherbet, as defined by FDA, is something that contains 1-2% of milkfat, so you should avoid it.
To help you decide on what to order including on what size to choose, check the complete nutritional information of each product.
There are nine choices and all have either or both sherbet and yogurt so, nothing from the list is vegan. However, the store gives you the freedom to personalize your order. Be sure to stay away from honey, yogurt, and sherbet. You can have pineapple sorbet as a substitute for them. You can relax because their pineapple sorbet is confirmed to be vegan. Take a look at the list and see if something looks delicious for you.
