Planet Smoothie Unveils Smoothie Bowls Nationwide

Planet Smoothie rolled out Smoothie Bowls nationwide for a limited time. Previously available at select locations, customers everywhere can now enjoy Smoothie Bowls until the end of the year.

The Amazon Kick Bowl and Nutty Brazilian Bowl both feature Sambazon açaí, the first and only certified organic, fair trade açaí, and are both a heartier take on their smoothie counterparts, with all the same delicious ingredients blended together. The Daybreak Crunch Bowl includes fresh fruit, Greek yogurt and whole grain oats. All three bowls can be customized with add-ins such as leafy greens and toppings like coconut or honey.

"We are thrilled to bring Smoothie Bowls to all Planet Smoothie locations for a limited time," says Nicole Butcher, national marketing manager for Planet Smoothie. "All three of them are a refreshing and satisfying option for breakfast, lunch, or even a mid-day snack."

Sambazon is the first and only company to bring their certified organic and fair trade açaí, a Brazilian superfruit, to the U.S. and is committed to sustainable management of the Brazilian Amazon where the fruit is grown. The company is structured with a triple bottom line business philosophy, reinvesting five percent of the raw açaí they purchase back into local schools and hospitals, while supporting more than 20,000 local family farmers on fair trade wages, according to their website.
