CROSS RIVER, N.Y. Two local businesses, Treat Frozen Yogurt and The Gym at BodyFit, both in Cross River, have teamed up to create a new drink: the new BodyFit Smoothie.
Available exclusively at Treat, the blended drink is made with nonfat, low-carb vanilla frozen yogurt, gluten-free natural protein powder, skim milk, and fresh fruit.
"It just seemed like a natural fit between two local businesses," said Lisa Pizzurro, co-owner of Treat. "BodyFit is all about health and fitness. Our frozen yogurt is free of artificial colors and flavors, our fruit is fresh, and our protein powder is all-natural."
The BodyFit Smoothie comes in a 20-ounce size and costs $6, including tax.
"We offered the product to our members first through a promotion and they simply loved it," said Mike Tedesco, co-owner of BodyFit.
Treat is located in the back lower level of Cross River Plaza at the intersection of routes 35 and 121, behind DiCicco Family Market (formerly D'Agostino). Treat offers low-fat and nonfat frozen yogurt with optional fresh fruit and candy toppings, as well as smoothies, blended coffee drinks, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate. There is an outdoor patio area, cell phone service for Verizon customers, and free Wi-Fi available. Treat can be found online at www.treatcrossriver.com.
Located just east of Route 121 at 890 Route 35, BodyFit services include strength training, cardiovascular training, flexibility training, weight loss and nutrition, and yoga.
