Can I interest you in a probiotic smoothie?

Functional Ingredients reports that a California-based juice and smoothie manufacturer, Naked Juice, is selling “the first 100% juice smoothie with probiotics that aid in digestive and immune health.”

Naked Juice Probiotic is being offered as a mango, orange, and pineapple blend and includes the probiotic strain, Bifidobacterium. It also contains the prebiotic fructo-oligosaccharides. Other flavors are being considered.

It reflects a worldwide trend to incorporate probiotics into familiar foods such as probiotic chocolate.
