Planet Smoothie Launches Limited-Time Offer Greek Smoothies

Two Limited Edition Smoothies, Berry Berry Apollo and Strawberry Aphrodite, feature Nonfat Greek Yogurt

NASHVILLE - Sept. 23, 2013 // PRNewswire //  - Planet Smoothie, a national franchisor and consumer products business selling smoothies and all-natural snacks to health-conscious consumers, has expanded its menu to include two new smoothies featuring Greek yogurt. Now through October 27, customers who aim to live a healthier lifestyle can enjoy the extra protein packed into featured flavors at Planet Smoothie:

Berry Berry Apollo

  • A blend of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and nonfat Greek yogurt

Strawberry Aphrodite

  • A blend of strawberries, banana and nonfat Greek yogurt

The addition of Greek yogurt increases the average protein in the Berry Berry Apollo and Strawberry Aphrodite smoothies to 14 grams. The ingredient also contains live, active cultures to ensure you're getting high-quality probiotics, which boost immunity.

"When searching for food options, it's no secret that consumers are looking for health, convenience and taste," said Jason Mann, area developer at Planet Smoothie in Central Florida. "The limited edition Planet Smoothie featuring Greek yogurt can satisfy all three. Most of our customers are excited to know that with roughly the same amount of calories, Greek yogurt can pack double the amount of protein while cutting the sugar content in half compared to regular yogurt."

Greek yogurt is popular among all ages and has broad consumer appeal, thanks in large part to its health benefits. It has been defined as an "incredibly smart and gratifying choice" 1 for five primary reasons: heart and bone health, weight reduction, muscle accretion and tasty food combinations.

"The thick, creamy texture of Greek yogurt creates tasty smoothie blends, while boosting the amount of muscle-building protein already found in our regular items," Mann said.

"We were eager to offer a smoothie that included Greek yogurt since it has been gaining popularity with our customers," said Donna Smith, vice president of marketing at Planet Smoothie. "The category has grown 2,500 percent over five years, and it tastes great."

Berry Berry Apollo and Strawberry Aphrodite are available for a limited time through October 27. For more information, visit
