Yes, this is exactly what you think it is. The Zone 8 team just couldn’t resist recreating this delicious childhood-classic in fruit smoothie form. This is a flavor we were extremely excited about formulating and took steps to ensure everything came together perfectly. Valencia oranges are among some of the oranges that we use. These are known for their natural sweetness while still retaining that almost tart, yet revitalizing, citrus burst you’d desire from an orange. That sweet citrus flavor coupled with the creamy coconut milk is topped off with a hint of vanilla to bring you a ready-to-drink smoothie that’s sure to redefine refreshment with a flavor blast from the past!
The ready-to-drink beverage sections of most grocery or convenience stores we walk into are a little disappointing to say the least. Even teas and other drinks claiming to be “natural” and healthy are loaded with sugar, cheap filler juices, dyes, and those nasty preservatives and ingredients that none of us can pronounce. This motivated us as a company to contribute affordable, truly natural teas and beverages with unbelievably real flavor profiles to the RTD category.
Tea is without a doubt Zone 8’s cornerstone and passion, but…Why stop there? We feel most in our element in the kitchen whipping up new recipes or tweaking old ones, and so naturally one passion has led to another. Zone 8 is proud to announce that we are officially launching a line of RTD fruit smoothies! These are non-dairy, coconut milk-based smoothies that all have a hint of vanilla blended in with their original flavors. Zone 8’s RTD smoothies are currently not USDA Certified Organic or Non-GMO Project Verified, but fear not. We are in the process of gaining the proper certifications as you read this—drink up and redefine refreshment!
