Three smoothies ideal for meal replacement join the menu introducing Planet Pro Veg, a pea protein
NASHVILLE, Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Planet Smoothie has expanded its menu to include three new high-protein smoothies just in time to help with New Year's resolutions. Customers who are interested in health and exercise will enjoy the extra protein found in three featured flavors at Planet Smoothie:
Acai Power Berry
Lean Green Extreme
Peanut Butter Press-ley
After introducing 10 new products in 2013, Planet Smoothie is pleased to offer three new protein-packed smoothies filled with real fruit and leafy greens to kick off 2014. In addition to the ingredients included in the Acai Power Berry, Lean Green Extreme and Peanut Butter Press-ley, consumers have the opportunity to add additional benefits in the form of Planet Smoothie's proprietary "Blasts." From Fat Burner, Fiber and Multivitamin to Immunity, Energy and Workout, Planet Smoothie's Blasts offer an extra health boost to fit a variety of needs.
Fiber blasts combined with smoothies high in protein can increase satiety. Protein generally increases satiety to a greater extent than carbohydrates or fat1 and may lead to improved appetite control, reductions in energy intake, and, over time, better weight management2.
"Protein can keep you feeling fuller, longer so that you're less likely to overeat later," said Donna Smith, vice president of marketing at Planet Smoothie. "Whether you're swapping a smoothie for your breakfast, lunch or dinner, these protein-packed products will help keep you on track with your diet plan throughout the day."
Additional protein can be consumed in a variety of ways at Planet Smoothie. You could include peanut butter as an add-in to your favorite smoothie, or if you're interested in a non-dairy option, try the new plant based protein supplement, Planet Pro Veg, made with pea protein. Pea protein has multiple benefits including a tendency to lower blood pressure, boasts a 98 percent digestion rate and is highly satiating. Furthermore, both whey and pea proteins contain branched-chain amino acids such as leucine, which can contribute to greater muscle mass and strength3.
"Since many of our customers are dedicated workout enthusiasts, we wanted to create new smoothies that not only tasted good but also contained extra protein," Smith said. "However, these limited-time offer smoothies are great for anyone looking to include more fruits, vegetables and protein in their diets, or consumers who just want to enjoy a great-tasting smoothie!"
The Acai Power Berry, Lean Green Extreme and Peanut Butter Press-ley protein smoothies are available for a limited time through March 16. For more information, visit planetsmoothie.com.
