The latest menu innovation at Tropical Smoothie Café is getting its share of attention from vegans, vegetarians, and “flexitarians” alike. That’s because they’re chicken strips—without the chicken.
Created by Los Angeles–based Beyond Meat—a company that develops plant-based protein products meant to serve as meat alternatives—the chicken-free strips are made from a soy and pea protein blend.
Each 3-ounce serving includes just 120 calories and 18 grams of protein. The chicken is also available grilled and in a Southwest flavor.
