New Orleans--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Smoothie King Franchises, Inc., the originator of the nutritional fruit-based smoothie, has added six new coffee-based smoothies to its menu. The chain invites guests to try the new blends for free before 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 18, during The Smoothie King Morning Wakeup Event at its more than 550 locations nationwide.
Guests can wake up with Smoothie King and choose a free 20-ounce blend from any of the new coffee or Mo'cuccino smoothies in caramel, mocha or vanilla. The coffee smoothies include Gladiator protein to provide an energy boost and long-lasting fullness, while the Mo'cuccino mixes java with ice cream and protein, intended to be an indulgent treat.
"Not only do the new coffee and Mo'cuccino smoothies taste great, but the added Gladiator protein keeps you feeling fuller longer," said Steve Kuhnau, president and co-founder of Smoothie King. "We couldn't think of a better way to get guests as energized as we are about these new blends than to give them away for free!"
Because the coffee in Smoothie King's new line of smoothies is cold-brewed processed, more than 70 percent of the bitter acids and oils are removed, providing a smoother flavor and resting easier on the stomach.
Any of the coffee and Mo'cuccino smoothies can be made "skinny" by leaving out the turbinado, thereby reducing the number calories and carbs in each of the blends.
