After Chief Executive Officer VanTrang Manges discovered a smoothie solution to help get vegetables into her daughter’s diet, she decided to bottle it for children with the same problem. Therefore, Athena Brands Inc. launched Green Mustache organic fruit-and-vegetable juice smoothies in 10-ounce, kid-friendly bottles. Available in Mixed Berry, Strawberry Banana, Orange Mango and Tropical Twist flavors, each bottle provides one serving of fruit and one serving of vegetables without any added sugar. The drinks also contain ground chia seeds, which offer calcium, omega-3, magnesium and fiber, as well as coconut water, which offers potassium and electrolytes, the company says. The ingredients are certified organic by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Non-GMO Project Verified, vegan and gluten-free. A bottle has a suggested retail price of $4.99.
