Planet Smoothie announces today its partnership with Sambazon, the Acai global leader, to launch three new smoothie flavors in a limited-time offer: Amazon Energy, Amazon Cherry, and Jungle Fruit Fuzion. Superfood smoothies—made from the powerful Acai berry and the newly discovered Amazon Cherry—pack a punch of nutrients and powerful benefits for every lifestyle.

Planet Smoothie will be adding the following menu items at all participating locations:

• Amazon Energy is made with Sambazon’s Amazon Cherry and organic Acai Berry “Amazon Energy” Drink, which is 100 percent natural. Loaded with Vitamin C and rich in antioxidants, this smoothie is enhanced with the rainforest botanicals guarana and yerba mate for energy. Planet Smoothie is the first smoothie concept to launch the Amazon Energy smoothie. • Amazon Cherry is the newest superfood discovery. Known for its distinctively creamy and refreshing taste, Amazon Cherry has 10 times the amount of Vitamin C in orange juice with less sugar. Its antioxidant power boosts immunity and combats stress. • Jungle Fruit Fuzion contains two Amazon superfruits, Acai and Amazon Cherry. The smoothie contains two times the antioxidants of blueberries and 10 times the amount of Vitamin C found in orange juice.

All three creations are available for a limited time, from July 1 through October, at all participating Planet Smoothie locations “We place a strong emphasis on educating our customers about the nutritional benefits of the products we offer,” says Chris Morocco, CEO of Petrus Brands which owns Planet Smoothie. “This rollout is consistent with our aggressive strategy to set a new industry standard where consumers can find literally some of the healthiest products on the planet. Sambazon has been an outstanding partner for Planet Smoothie and we are thankful for their continued support of Planet Smoothie.”
