When it comes to New Year's resolutions, healthier eating ranks high on the list. In 2016, Tropical Smoothie Café is offering numerous ways for guests to achieve their goals beginning with a unique live-better smoothie lineup and new flatbreads launching in January. All are designed to deliver the delicious, unique tastes the brand is known for with enough variety and extra benefits to help people kickstart the New Year on the right track.
"We know our customers are focused on health and wellness this time of year," says Lisa Dimson, CMO of Tropical Smoothie. "In addition to our current offerings guests will see several new better-for-you products. These options won't force them to choose between flavor or good-natured food, but rather will provide them with craveable options no matter the need."
Tropical Smoothie will ring in 2016 with two new Latin-inspired flatbreads that are packed with hearty flavor and fulfilling ingredients, the Smoked Queso Chicken and Mojo Pork & Swiss. The Smoked Queso Chicken features lean grilled chicken, smoked jalapeno cheese, roasted kale, red onion, and red pepper. The Mojo Pork & Swiss is a tropical spin on the traditional Cuban sandwich with slow-roasted pulled pork, roasted pineapple salsa, crisp cabbage, zesty mustard, Swiss cheese, and bold mojo sauce. Both flatbreads are satisfying for the body and palate and available for a limited time only at participating locations.
Tropical Smoothie will also be unveiling its Live Better Smoothie Lineup, which consists of four smoothies purposefully designed to address guests' top nutritional needs. Arise and start the day with the Chia Banana Boost, a drinkable breakfast that offers an energy lift with many ingredients including roasted banana, chia seeds, whole-grain oats, and even the option to add peanut butter or strawberries. Boost the immune system with orange, green apple, vitamin-C immune complex, and more with the Immune Blast smoothie. Flaunt that hard-earned muscle with the Chia Banana Max smoothie, which aids the body in responding to exercise through whole grains, proteins, and fruits that are essential to building fat-burning muscle. Lastly, detox the body with the Detox Island Green smoothie, which features five whole fruits and vegetables, including the ever-cleansing fresh ginger, so the body may perform at its peak condition.
"We want people to see that when you put good nutrition in to your body, what you get out of it is a healthier, happier, more vibrant you," Dimson says.
