A Labor of Love: Our Cleaner Blending Initiative
Cleaner Blending represents our commitment to blend a cleaner, more nutritious smoothie with more whole fruits and veggies. It’s all the flavor our guests want and none of the added sugar and artificial colors, preservatives, or flavors they don’t.
That means our guests get the same great taste with 0 grams added sugar in many of our purpose blends.
And Smoothie King franchisees can be confident they're investing in a mission-driven brand dedicated to inspiring people to live a healthy and active lifestyle.
