Smoothie King® Offers New Greek Yogurt Smoothies
Smoothies Help Guests Balance Weight Management Goals Without Sacrificing Flavor
NEW ORLEANS, June 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Smoothie King Franchises, Inc. has introduced three new Greek Yogurt Smoothies to its menu. Greek yogurt's protein, probiotic and calcium attributes, paired with Smoothie King's real fruit, vegetables, juice blends and fiber, work together to create a meal replacement any time of the day.
"We found Greek yogurt to be a perfect addition to the purposeful, high-quality and delicious smoothies we offer to people all over the world," said Wan Kim, owner and CEO of Smoothie King. "By incorporating these new smoothies on our menu, we are making a statement that Greek yogurt is not just a trend, but part of a healthier day-to-day lifestyle. Our goal is to help guests balance their weight management goals without sacrificing flavor."
Three Greek Yogurt Smoothies, which are naturally powered by Chobani® Greek Yogurt, have been added to the Smoothie King menu for this initial rollout:
-- Blueberry Strawberry: A customer favorite, this Greek yogurt smoothie is rich in protein with 12g per small (20oz) and tastes like a "berry explosion" in your mouth. -- Pineapple Mango: Blended with Greek yogurt, 4g of fiber, 11g of protein and electrolytes, this smoothie tastes like a "tropical citrus burst." -- Carrot Orange: A perfect blend of veggies and fruits, this Greek yogurt smoothie features an untraditional pairing with extraordinary taste.
With the built-in protein Greek yogurt provides, these menu items can be consumed as either a wholesome snack or a meal replacement. The new smoothies have up to 12 g of protein, 4 g of fiber and are all less than 350 calories. All three smoothies ranked very highly among guests in test markets.
