September 07, 2016 // Franchising.com // Scottsdale, Ariz. – Planet Smoothie® (www.PlanetSmoothie.com) announces almond milk as its first ever non-dairy milk option, which can be found in three new limited time only, vegan smoothies: Pineapple Tropi-Kale Twist, Salted Peanut Butter Cup, and Strawberry Chia Chiller, available September 5, 2016.
In order to cater to a growing consumer demand for non-dairy items, almond milk is now an option for Planet Smoothie lovers. The three new smoothies offer customers a chance to give it a try and taste for themselves. Each non-dairy smoothie was developed with health and allergen sensitivity in mind and is blended with almond milk to provide the same sweet and creamy taste as traditional smoothies.
“Almond milk is a fantastic option for consumers seeking dairy-free alternatives and it’s so good you can’t even taste the difference,” said Nicole Butcher, national marketing manager for Planet Smoothie. “Planet Smoothie is excited to launch almond milk as an option in stores and continue to satisfy all of our customers with delicious tasting products that cater to specific dietary needs.” These new, vegan smoothies come in three delicious flavors and are available September 5, 2016, through January 1, 2017. Almond milk will continue to be available after that date.
The first Planet Smoothie store opened in Atlanta in 1995 using real fruits and vegetables, as well as its own line of supplements and Leanleaf® sweetener in its smoothies that are blended fresh-to-order.
