SMOOTHIE KING AND DREW BREES TEAM UP TO PROMOTE HEALTHY, ACTIVE LIFESTYLES

Pro athlete and busy dad shows how delicious and convenient better nutrition can be.

 

DALLAS (January 10, 2019) – Smoothie King, the world’s leading smoothie brand, will further its mission to inspire guests to live healthy and active lifestyles with a little help from Drew Brees.

Through the new relationship, Brees will introduce Smoothie King’s Cleaner Blending recipes, focusing on delicious smoothies with high-quality ingredients and more whole fruits and vegetables. The smoothies are custom blended to inspire a healthy and active lifestyle, with no artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, gluten, trans fats or hydrogenated oils, and with zero grams of added sugar in many blends.

“Smoothie King’s commitment to provide high-quality, nutritious, and great-tasting smoothies fits into my daily goals of leading a healthy and active lifestyle,” said Brees. “Whether you are setting a fitness goal, a weight-loss goal or simply trying to eat better, Smoothie King can help you achieve your healthy and active lifestyle goals. That’s something I can really get behind.”

Brees is a world-class pro football athlete at the top of his game. He is in his 18th season in the league and holds the professional records for career pass completions, completion percentage and passing yards. He is second in career touchdown passes, third in regular season passer rating and fourth in postseason passer rating. Brees has accomplished all this while also being a busy and involved dad of four.

Smoothie King is teaming up with Brees to show everyone how delicious and convenient healthier eating can be. Brees said, “My favorite smoothie really depends on the time of day. The Immune Builder® Mixed Berry is one of my favorite smoothies, but I am a fan of greens with the Vegan Mango Kale, and the Coffee High Protein Almond Mocha is a great way to start my day.”

“We chose Drew because he’s an inspiration to our guests through his healthy eating habits and active lifestyle, not only as a professional athlete, but also on his personal journey with his wife and four growing kids,” said Smoothie King CEO Wan Kim.

Fans and guests can follow Brees and learn more about the new relationship on Twitter and Instagram @drewbrees and on Facebook @DB9nfl and www.smoothieking.com/brees.
