NPD RECOMMENDATION - SMOOTHIES
In Brazil, the detox-juice market is expected to grow of at least 20%. Very trendy are combinations with a twist: apple, kale, lemon and mint, or pineapple, apple, kale and ginger.
AGRANA Fruit in Mexico is providing more fruity freshness in the smoothie segment. The most popular smoothie in Mexico is made from a mix of celery, cactus, pineapple and orange juice, and it is especially preferred as a detox drink.
Kale is (still) cool in the USA – of course, every foodie knows that. But this year kale is part of exciting new culinary pairings: Strawberries, other red berries and even sweet potatoes are being partnered with the trendy green and delighting our taste buds.
Even Russia has caught smoothie fever. The most popular combinations are apple-banana and kiwi-gooseberry.
In Germany we love the mix of sweet and fresh flavours. The most popular smoothie combinations are with apple, banana, cucumber and ginger – a tasty summer combination!
