Addition to Popular Greek Yogurt Smoothie Line Introduces New Flavor Profile for Smoothie King

Smoothie King Franchises, Inc., the leading smoothie franchise company with more than 720 stores worldwide, will introduce a new smoothie to its menu this summer. The smoothie, called “Peach Papaya,” will be unveiled as an extension to the franchise’s popular, new, Greek Yogurt Smoothies line.

The Peach Papaya Greek Yogurt Smoothie is blended with peaches, Chobani Greek Yogurt, papaya juice blend, mango juice blend, protein, fiber and electrolytes. It is rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin C and calcium, is a good source of iron, and at just 340 calories and 12g of protein for a 20 oz. cup, it can be consumed as either a meal replacement or healthy snack.

“When we launched our Greek Yogurt Smoothie line last year using Chobani, America’s #1 Greek Yogurt brand, the positive response was immediate!” said Wan Kim, owner and CEO of Smoothie King. “The line quickly became one of our top sellers and remains in the top 10 of our product mix. Extending this line with Peach Papaya was a natural progression to both satisfy our guests and expand on our partnership with the strong Chobani brand.”

The Peach Papaya Greek Yogurt Smoothie was developed to help guests maintain healthy digestive function and heart health, and replenish electrolytes lost during exercise. It also delivers the nutritional benefits of Greek yogurt, like having more protein than regular yogurt*. The other three Greek Yogurt Smoothies on the menu, which were launched in 2014, include Pineapple Mango, Strawberry Blueberry, and Orange Vanilla.

* Chobani Greek yogurt contains at least 12% more of the daily value for protein than regular, unstrained yogurt. Protein content of regular low-fat yogurt is 11 grams protein per 8 oz. serving; Chobani Greek yogurt low-fat contains 11-12 grams of protein per 5.3 oz. serving.
