Powerhaus Pizza & Smoothies, purveyor of nutritious protein-packed pizzas and superfood smoothies, has recently released a newly-expanded menu that now includes wraps as well as new smoothies. Additionally, Powerhaus now offers catering, perfect for parties, office meetings, and corporate events to fit a variety of people’s needs including vegans, vegetarians, the health-conscious, gluten-free folks, and even traditional pizza lovers.
The newest items to be added to the menu along with the current selection of pizzas, salads, and smoothies are wraps including the “Beet Wrap made with beets, sesame citrus carrots, spinach, pumpkin seeds, almonds, feta, and chia seeds, and the “Cali Wrap” made with arugula, green peppers, carrots, red onion, feta, hemp seeds, apple, and mango apple cider vinaigrette. Both of these come with a choice of toasted chickpeas or naturally-raised chicken for the protein selection.
New smoothie additions include The Green Drink made with mint, ginger, spinach, celery, chlorophyll, apple, lemon juice, & coconut water. Chlorophyll drops boost your red blood cell count and support your immune system. The Strawberry Sunrise smoothie, has strawberries, mango, pineapple, oats, glutamine, orange juice, & choice of protein (collagen, grass-fed whey or organic plant-based). Glutamine is an amino acid that helps with tissue recovery and prevents muscle breakdown. Additionally, Powerhaus recently collaborated with Christina Rice, a local blogger, podcast host, and Paleo Women Lifestyle Program creator, for a festive holiday season smoothie. Christina Rice’s Pumpkin Spice is made with pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, maca, almond butter, walnuts, cacao nibs, apple, banana, & coconut cream
All of the recipes, including those new to the menu, were developed by owner Anisha Blodgett who works closely with naturopathic doctor Emily Poccia of Wildcraft. This is to ensure that each recipe has the right amount of fresh, natural, organic, and nutritious ingredients to provide the proper nourishment for optimum health while also tasting great.
“It’s all about balance when it comes to eating and maintaining a sustainable healthy lifestyle and I’m really excited that our menu has grown to offer even more options,” said owner Anisha Blodgett. “Rather than eliminating some of our favorite foods from our diet that many would consider a “cheat meal” like pizza, which is often loaded with processed and unhealthy ingredients, our philosophy is to enhance it-—along with our smoothies, salad and wraps—to its highest potential by instead incorporating superfoods and plant-based protein.”
About Powerhaus Pizza & Smoothies
Powerhaus, founded by Anisha Blodgett, opened in January 2019 with the mission to support others in their wellness journey by making eating well simple and enjoyable. All of the recipes were created with the idea to offer something for everybody and to maximize the nutritional benefit by closely consulting with naturopathic doctor Emily Poccia of Wildcraft Medicine. This collaboration ensures the menu is high quality, healthy, and nourishing by integrating superfoods, heart-healthy fats and plant-based protein into the pizzas, smoothies, wraps, and salads.
