Fruit Smoothies in Ocean County?

nachoswithcocoa Apr 9, 2009 09:23 AM

I am addicted to Jamba Juice (http://jambajuice.com) in the city - but alas, I can't make it to the city as much as I would like.

Does anyone know of a place in Ocean or maybe even Monmouth County that makes smoothies with fresh fruit that are up to par with Jamba Juice?

    I haven't been to Jamba Juice but I picked up smoothies at Fins on Rt 88 in Brick which were pretty good. Although I am now very interested in trying Jamba Juice so its on my to do list when I go to the city this weekend.

        It's over in the plaza with KMart and Pathmark.. You can't miss it, it sits towards the street close to the liquor store. Bright yellow and green building

        OH! And definitely try Jamba when you're there. My favorite is the Caribbean Passion. Soooo good!! They're almost everywhere in the city.. I'm sure where you're going there'll be one near by!

          Heading to the Javits Center for the Auto Show. Any recommendations on anything around there that is decent? I looked on the NY board but seems like I'm cabbing or hiking for some decent food.

            Hmm.. I'm not too familiar with that area myself.. sorry. I do know there's a Jamba Juice in Port Authority and one somewhere in the Times Square area .. which I think both are sort of near the Javits Center.

            Also.. I believe there's a Dallas BBQs near there as well.. They give you HUGE portions for super cheap.. and their Texas Sized Margartias are great too! http://bbqnyc.com

            Good luck! If you do try Jamba.. let me know what you think!

              Will do. Please let me know how your Fins trip goes if you do!

        There is a Jamba Juice - North Brunswick NJ Middlesex County Corner of Rt 1/Rt 130.

          Thanks.. I saw that earlier but it's still 55 mins from me. I might as well go the extra 25 minutes and go all the way to the city and get the other things I've been craving from there.. (like an arepa from Caracas!! lol)

          I don't know Jamba Juice, but after looking at their website, I think it is similar to Re~juice~a~nation on Main Street in Manasquan.

              Thanks!! They have a site for the Hoboken one http://rejuiceanation.com

              And here's a menu for the Manasquan one: http://www.jerseymenus.com/menus.php?...

              I'm definitely going to be checking it out this weekend.. I like that they use sherbert instead of yogurt intheir smoothies. Thanks again!
