Smoothie King Launches 'Premama' Prenatal Smoothie
First smoothie of its kind created in conjunction with leading prenatal supplement company.
NEW ORLEANS - June 12, 2018 // PRNewswire // - Smoothie King, the leading smoothie brand committed to inspiring guests to live a healthy and active lifestyle, has worked with Premama®, a leader in prenatal vitamins, to create an exclusive prenatal smoothie specially blended with whole fruits, organic spinach and Premama's award-winning prenatal supplement powder to provide a delicious and convenient option for pregnant women.
"Nutrition is one of the top concerns for busy women on the go who find it challenging to make sure they are getting enough whole fruits and veggies. They also often have difficulty swallowing and keeping down a giant prenatal vitamin pill," said Richard Chudacoff, MD, FACOG. "The Premama Smoothie has created a great, nutritious snack and is a better-for-you alternative to satisfy the sweet cravings that many women experience during pregnancy."
The Premama Smoothie is made with bananas, wild blueberries, raspberries, organic spinach, apple juice, protein blend and Premama Prenatal Multivitamin, and can be sweetened with stevia plant-based sweetener. True to Smoothie King's Cleaner Blending initiative, the Premama Smoothie is made for the way people want to eat today, with no trans fat, high fructose corn syrup or hydrogenated oils, and is gluten-free.
"The Premama Smoothie is the epitome of a 'Smoothie With A Purpose' because it is specifically designed to deliver clean ingredients and nutrition guests can feel good about putting in their bodies," said Smoothie King VP of Product Development Rocky Gettys. "Working with Premama was key in creating this smoothie from both a nutrition and credibility perspective – the Premama brand is award-winning, and our smoothie ingredients are the real deal."
Premama, the first nationwide line of powdered drink mixes and soft chews specifically formulated to support the nutritional needs of expecting and new moms, was named the No. 1 prenatal vitamin in Delicious Living's "Best Supplement" Awards in 2017.
The Premama Smoothie is now available at all Smoothie King locations nationwide. For locations, go to www.smoothieking.com/locations.
