This article provides information on several restaurants and academic institutions in the U.S. that offer smoothies beverages to its customers and students. Freshens Quality Brands, which operates more than 1,500 dessert and smoothie locations including 480 in campus venues, re-images its locations every two years. It is now discontinuing two low-carbohydrates varieties as part of the current update, yet is adding four low-calorie, low-fat creations to the product mix. While, Guest Services introduced its Keep It Fresh juice and smoothie program to customers at the U.S. Department of State headquarters in Washington, D.C. and the Fairfax Government Center. At Oregon State University, Rich Turnbull, associate director of housing and dining, offers smoothies in two locations to meet the demand of the approximately 19,000 students on campus. At the Dixon Café in Dixon Recreation Center, smoothies being offered are juice and fruit-based, then customized with non-fat milk, non-fat frozen yogurt or even soy milk. They are more expensive since they are prepared without ice, but the larger size boasts a full day's requirement of fruit.
