January 17, 2017 // Franchising.com // Scottsdale, Ariz. - Maui Wowi® Hawaiian Coffees & Smoothies (www.MauiWowi.com) is starting the New Year off strong with a new menu item – the Green Smoothie. The limited time offering is a tropically tangy drink with an extra nutritional boost.
The franchise specializing in Hawaiian coffees and fruit smoothies is introducing its first vegetable-centric smoothie at all U.S. brick and mortar retail locations on January 15. The Green Smoothie is a blend of orange, pineapple, pear juices, and spinach purée. The fruit juice and spinach purée is blended with live-cultured, probiotic yogurt. A fresh banana is added before blending with ice. The smoothie provides a full serving of vegetables and is packed with dietary fiber, protein, vitamin A and zinc.
“Maui Wowi is excited to introduce the Green Smoothie to our lineup. Created from customer demand, this is our first smoothie that contains both fruits and vegetables,” said Mike Weinberger, brand president of Maui Wowi. “We worked meticulously to create a smoothie that’s full of nutritious elements, while cultivating a flavor and texture that will delight the palate. It’s a great option for the health-minded smoothie consumer.”
The Green Smoothie will be available for a limited time, now through March 31, 2017.
Inspired to embrace the Hawaiian culture, Maui Wowi is committed to sharing the Aloha Spirit with the world one sip at a time by consistently offering one of a kind smoothies and Hawaiian coffees across the country at catering events, Tiki hut-style mobile event carts, kiosks and brick and mortar locations.
