Smoothie King Franchise Opportunities: What Makes a Smoothie a Meal Replacement?

Smoothie King is staying ahead of the smoothie business competition by continuously evolving its menu to meet guests’ needs and expectations. Consumers today remain focused on their health and wellness goals. As such, Smoothie King’s purpose-driven menu complete with countless combinations of whole fruits, organic veggies and nutritional enhancers are ideal for guests looking to get the most out of their day.

Most recently, Smoothie King has launched three Power Meal smoothies, which offer delicious high-protein, low-calorie meal replacements. The term “meal replacement” has been used in the smoothie, juice and bowl industry for some time, but Smoothie King’s new Power Meal smoothies provide 20g of protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals to ensure guests are getting a complete meal in a cup. So, what exactly classifies a meal replacement?

According to a report by the Mayo Clinic, a true meal replacement must have a good balance of good carbohydrates, good proteins, and good healthy fats. Additionally, according to an article written by nutritional scientists, the best meal replacements will provide a good balance of macronutrients in an easy-to-eat form. Meal replacements vary depending on personal goals and food preferences, but a healthy diet requires roughly 20-30 percent of its calories from fat, 40-65 percent from carbohydrates, and 15-25 percent from protein. However, these numbers are just guidelines – what’s most important is a meal replacement that fits into your overall healthy eating goals, whether it’s a good opportunity to secure extra fiber, protein or anything else that your diet may be lacking.

Our smoothie franchise opportunities, such as Smoothie King’s Power Meal smoothies deliver on that criterion while offering a premier alternative to traditional convenient fast food and other meal replacement options. The new smoothies, which include Cinnamon Banana, Blueberry Raspberry, and Spinach Pineapple, are all packed with 20g of protein, 7g of fiber, 23 vitamins and minerals, and zero grams of added sugar, for under 350 calories.

The latest menu additions showcase Smoothie King’s dedication to ongoing menu innovation to help drive store profitability for franchisees. Additionally, the brand’s new Power Meal smoothies can attract a new guest to the brand, which will increase store traffic and build guest loyalty.
