A Fresh Start to the New Year: Tropical Smoothie Cafe Debuts New Wrap and Salad

Rapidly Growing Smoothie-and-Food Franchise Expands Healthier Menu Options to Fulfill Consumer Demand

ATLANTA, Jan. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With the New Year comes a renewed commitment to healthier eating, and Tropical Smoothie Cafe is recruiting taste buds with a bold and flavorful menu packed with nutrient-rich ingredients.  

Known for its tasty, better-for-you fare with a tropical twist, Tropical Smoothie Cafe is introducing the new Coconut Curry Chicken Wrap, featuring chicken, carrots and mixed grains wrapped in a warm tortilla and layered in a delicious coconut curry sauce, and the Coconut Lime Chicken Salad, made with chicken, tomatoes, carrots and mixed grains on a bed of kale, spinach and romaine lettuce, topped with a delectable coconut lime dressing. These two menu items will be available for a limited-time until Feb. 23, 2014.

"Eating 'lighter' doesn't mean you have to eat boring or bland food," said Lisa Wenda, Chief Marketing Officer of Tropical Smoothie Cafe. "Our new wrap and salad are a reinforcement of Tropical Smoothie Cafe's 'Eat Better. Feel Better.' mantra, where we believe that food that's good for you doesn't have to sacrifice on taste."

In addition to the new salad and wrap, Tropical Smoothie Cafe invites guests to drink to their health with a variety of fruit and vegetable smoothie options overflowing with superfoods, such as the Island Green, a blend of fresh spinach, kale, mango, pineapple and banana; Caribbean C-burst, a mix of carrots, mango, banana, goji and orange juice; Acai Berry Boost, made with blueberries, strawberries, pomegranate, bananas and acai; and Pomegranate Plunge, a combination of bananas, strawberries, cranberries and pomegranate.
