Take Your Planet Smoothie Consumption to the ‘Pro’ Level
Planet Smoothie, a Petrus Brands company, announced the launch of Planet Pro, a protein meal replacement powder. Planet Pro is offered in light and regular formulas, both of which can be utilized as meal replacements based on their protein, calories, and carb counts.
Planet Pro Light features 25 grams of protein, 160 calories, two grams of sugar, and seven grams of carbs. Planet Pro offers40 grams of protein, 250 calories, three grams of sugar, and 12 grams of carbs.
“Planet Pro was specially designed for improved taste and blends perfectly with consumers’ made-at-home smoothies or Planet Smoothie’s in-store fruit choice,” says Bonnie Rhinehardt, president of Planet Smoothie. “Both the light and regular formulas provide a creamy texture versus the typical gritty/chalky consistency found in many meal replacement options available in the market today.”
In addition, both products feature a time-release protein blend, which promotes rapid recovery and fuels hours of muscle growth. Both Planet Pro Light and Planet Pro can be used before and after intense workouts or as a meal replacement. Planet Pro blended with fruit is ideal as it is nutrient dense, includes limited caloric intake, is highly absorbable, and will maintain the levels of protein, carbs, and calories needed to jumpstart a day.
