NEW YORK, Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- South Beach Diet® today unveiled a new addition to its popular family of nutritious and convenient snacks — the deliciously rich South Beach Diet 100 Calorie Smoothie, in taste-tempting Chocolate Truffle flavor. More than 50% of Americans snack two to three times a day, and South Beach Diet is answering the nation's appetite for snacks with its healthy offerings. The new South Beach Diet Chocolate Truffle Smoothie contains only 100 guilt-free calories, and is packed with 6 grams of protein and fiber that satisfy all the way to the next meal. Unlike most items sold in the diet aisle, this South Beach Diet product has no artificial flavors, sweeteners, or sugar alcohols; each Smoothie has 45% less sugar than the leading weight-loss shake.† It is in stores now.

"We're pleased to offer a delicious chocolate option of our popular South Beach Diet line of Smoothies," said Elise Donahue, CEO of the South Beach Diet. "We like to satisfy consumers' taste buds with protein- and fiber-rich snacks that are also scrumptious."

When asked, 96% of survey respondents told South Beach Diet they wanted a chocolate-flavored smoothie, and the company created the creamy, smooth, and chocolaty Chocolate Truffle Smoothie, perfect in the morning when rushing around, mid-morning at the office, as an afternoon pick-me-up, or anytime. Loaded with protein and fiber, it gives you a tasty energy boost without weighing you down with unwanted calories.

South Beach Diet 100 Calorie Smoothies are shelf-stable, single-serve, and ready to drink. These Smoothies help you feel full and satisfied between meals, with 6 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber. Made with natural sweeteners, ounce for ounce, each thick, rich Smoothie has 45% less sugar than the leading weight-loss shake.† On shelves now in a convenient, easy-to-carry 4-pack carton, South Beach Diet 100 Calorie Smoothies are available at a suggested retail price of $6.99 per carton.

With snacks now making up one third of Americans' daily caloric intake, we all want to be snacking strategically with delicious, nutritious snacks, or we will pay the price in unwanted weight gain. South Beach Diet is once again making nutritious taste great, and offers a popular and growing line of delicious, easy-to-carry-along snacks for protein- and fiber-rich snacking wherever you are. They satisfy all the way to the next meal, keep your metabolism up, and help curb sweet cravings.
