KENNER, LA. — Smoothie King is introducing a new batch of exotic flavored smoothies with its new "Smoothies Around the World" line. Smoothies Around the World offer the opportunity to experience flavors native to far-off locales, including the Amazon, China, Indonesia and the Himalayas.
"With Smoothies Around the World, we’re taking our knowledge of blending the perfect smoothie and incorporating exotic fruits and herbs to create a taste that goes beyond the ordinary," said Steve Kuhnau, founder of Smoothie King. "In addition to the fresh taste, each of the new smoothies are all-natural and nutrient-dense."
New smoothie flavors include: Acai Adventure, Green Tea Tango, Passion Passport, Go Goji, and Mangosteen Madness. Smoothie King is the first smoothie bar to offer goji and mangosteen on its menu.
Along with a unique taste, these fruits have been reported to provide various health benefits, Smoothie King said. The company noted that acai is high in antioxidants and an excellent source of omega-6 fatty acids, while goji is a good source of antioxidants, minerals, and amino acids, and may help to improve metabolism and increase energy levels. Finally, mangosteen contains a high number of xanthones, a very powerful antioxidant, and may help support and strengthen the immune system and improve digestion, Smoothie King said.
