1 product, served 3 ways
Our products are very versatile, meaning there are so many ways to serve them! Take our smoothies for example, these can be served as breakfast smoothies, smoothie bowls or even as frozen cocktails! Similarly, our milkshakes can be served on their own, customised with extra additions such as chocolate or fruit and even served as coffee shakes with a double espresso!
It’s worth reviewing your menu ahead of the season to see how you can turn one product into some seasonal specials with only a few/no extra ingredients that you already have in your café. Check out our Instagram too for serving suggestions and post from our customers! We always love seeing how you serve your products so don’t forget to tag us too using @projuice!

Have you serviced your equipment?
To ensure your Problend blender operates to its optimum capacity we recommend:
• Replacing your blade unit every 3-12 months
• Replacing your drive socket every 3-12 months
Get everything you need to change your drive socket and blade in our Problend Spares Pack.
Please note, estimates depend on blend frequency.
Are you takeaway ready?
For cold drinks we recommend 12-14oz RPET cups with paper straws – get 200 of each in our Cups, Lids and Straws Packs.
What is PET?
PET is short for polyethylene terephthalate, the chemical name for polyester. It is clear, strong as well as lightweight and widely used for packaging foods as well as beverages. PET is completely recyclable, and is the most recycled plastic worldwide. RPET is a recycled PET, making these cups even more sustainable. Our RPET cups contain at least 30% recycled plastic, making them even more sustainable.
