Organic Spinach Added to the Mix as Part of Our 'Cleaner Blending' Initiative
NEW ORLEANS (March 13,2018) Smoothie King, the leading smoothie company with more than 900 locations worldwide, furthers its Cleaner Blending initiative with the addition of whole organic spinach to the menu, joining other whole veggies like carrots and kale that can be blended into smoothies to support healthy and active lifestyles.
Two new Smoothie King blends feature organic spinach: the Vegan Pineapple Spinach Smoothie and the Veggie Lemon Ginger Spinach Smoothie. Guests can also add spinach to any other smoothie.
“Our new veggie smoothies are packed with fiber, potassium, vitamin A and vitamin C, making them nutritious additions to our Cleaner Blending menu,” said Mitchell Grittman, food scientist for Smoothie King. “Not only will these smoothies help guests fill the ‘whole’ in their diets, they also stay true to our promise to create better-for-you blends with quality ingredients.”
Smoothie King’s Cleaner Blending initiative focuses on removing added sugar, artificial flavors, colors and preservatives, added hormones in dairy, and GMO fruits and veggies from its smoothie offerings while including more whole fruits and vegetables. The company is on track to achieve its Cleaner Blending goals in more than 50 Purpose blends by the end of 2018.
Smoothie King blends all smoothies with the intent to help its guests live a purpose-driven lifestyle. The new Veggie and Vegan Blends will help guests enjoy the benefits of a plant-based diet, without compromising flavor.
