You might wonder why we introduced our Fruit Fusion range when we are already well known for our 'Shakeylicious' Milkshake treats. Well, we have all been encouraged to think more about what we eat and drink and there is much more awareness about sugar in everyday food and drink (including some of the juices and smoothies that we all know and love).
So, what goes into our Fruit Fusion Shakes? We use Individually Quick Frozen (IQF) fruit and vegetables from a supplier who has been winning lots of recognition for their 'you are what you blend' approach. (Did you know that freezing fruit at peak ripeness is the best way of preserving the vitamins and minerals which makes fruit so nutritious?) This means you won't see our Shakeologists peeling and chopping fruit and veg at the counter and you won't get any old squishy bits of fruit or stringy veg in our Fruit Fusion Shakes!
There is so much choice out there, but what makes our 'Smootheelicious' ingredients different are the carefully put together recipes that create a fabulous flavoured Shake with healthy and nutritious fruit and vegetables. Each Shake is freshly blended with fat-free frozen yoghurt and a dash of juice (yoghurt and juice do have some sugar) but there are no additives, preservatives, sugars or colours in the fruit and vegetables which is really important. Take a look at our menu and see which flavour combo you would go for.
And that's not all, we have also added the world's first ever all-in-one frozen Nutri-pellet Whey Protein Super Booster Smoothies to our menu. Yes, we agree that's a bit of a mouthful to say but they are100% natural with no sugars or preservatives. Alongside the main fruit or veggie ingredients, the innovative nutri-pellet contains Whey Protein, Spirulina, Chlorella and Water, and that's it. So, if you need a bit of an energy boost after a training session, or if you've been poorly, you should definitely give one a try. Oh, and did we say they are vegetarian friendly and GMO free too?
We asked some well-known Derby foodie bloggers to try our Red and Green Protein Super Booster Shakes, here's what one of them said...
'We were treated to two flavours of Fruit Fusion Shakes. My favourite was the green one but they were both excellent. They contained things like whey protein nutri-pellets, chia seeds, hemp seeds and all sorts of vitamins and healthy ingredients. They're a great way to get some extra goodness into you, especially if you're on the go!'
In 2016, our Charity of the Year was Children First Derby (CFD). The CFD Team works very hard to provide support services for vulnerable children living in the Derby area. We raised £3,000 for the charity during 2016, with fundraising
Here at Shakin' it, we hear from lots of under16s looking for a weekend or holiday job (we think this might be something to do with our delicious Milkshakes). We are happy to consider age 14 upwards to help us
At the end of August, we handed over £2,700 to Children First Derby, our charity of the year for 2016. We're super proud that we managed to raise this amount of money from one event and we asked Chief Shakeologist,
We have hundreds of flavour combos on our menu and we love each and every one! But...there are ten Shakes that our lovely customers ask for over and over again and we wouldn't dare argue with the experts! Our Shakeologists think some
