The cafe chain Planet Smoothie recently introduced a limited-edition lineup of vegan smoothies made with almond milk instead of regular milk. With a growing number of consumers cutting back on the amount of dairy they consume, these new smoothies are likely to appeal to the health-consious crowd.
The new non-dairy smoothies from Planet Smoothie come in three varieties, each of which is made from almond milk and other fresh ingredients. The Pineapple Tropi-Kale Twist smoothie contains leafy greens, while the Strawberry Chia Chiller is made from a blend of fruit and orange juice. Finally, the Salted Peanut Butter Cup smoothie combines cocoa powder, all-natural peanut butter, vanilla, bananas and sea salt for a dessert-like drink option.
With major chains such as Starbucks now offering almond milk, Planet Smoothie's new drink options demonstrates the growing demand for non-dairy alternatives.
