    Starting Tuesday, Stretch & Flex smoothies are available in all Smoothie King locations nationwide.

    Smoothie King has partnered with gold medal gymnast Gabby Douglas, an expert in staying limber and fit, to launch a new line of collagen-containing Stretch & Flex smoothies specifically designed to support joint health and flexibility.

    "I'm always looking for better ways to take care of my body on and off the mat, and I've been a big fan of Smoothie King for a while now," says three-time gold medalist Gabby Douglas. "I'm so excited to work with Smoothie King this year to inspire others to be and feel their best, they are truly a partner that aligns with my commitment to excellence and quality."

    The new Stretch & Flex smoothies are available in Tart Cherry or Pineapple Kale and feature Smoothie King's new Joint Health Enhancer with Collagen—a proprietary blend of type II collagen that, with daily use, helps increase joint flexibility and mobility and can reduce joint soreness during and after exercise. "When I found out about the new line of flexibility-focused smoothies made with collagen, I knew they would become a staple in my fitness routine," Douglas says.

    "We knew our guests were looking for a smoothie blended specifically for people who love yoga, dance, gymnastics and any activity requiring flexibility," says Rebecca Miller, Chief Marketing Officer of Smoothie King. "Our new Stretch & Flex smoothies with collagen make us the first to offer a smoothie made with this distinct purpose in mind, and we're excited to partner with Gabby Douglas to inspire guests to keep moving—literally and figuratively—toward their fitness goals."

    In addition to Joint Health Enhancer with Collagen, Stretch & Flex smoothies are blended with clean ingredients including tart cherries or pineapple and organic kale, bananas, coconut water, dates, and Sunwarrior organic plant-based protein. They contain no added sugar and are an excellent source of vitamin C (to support a healthy immune system), protein, fiber, vitamin D and more. Like all Smoothie King blends, they have no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

    To celebrate the launch, Smoothie King Healthy Rewards members (new and existing) can claim a free 12 oz. Stretch & Flex smoothie in either flavor between March 9 and March 11, 2021. As a bonus, Gabby Douglas is personally autographing 15 pieces of Smoothie King swag, and anyone who redeems the free smoothie sample is automatically entered to win one of the autographed prizes (yoga mats, backpacks and more) and a $100 Smoothie King gift card.

    Starting today, Stretch & Flex smoothies are available in all Smoothie King locations nationwide.
