NEW YORK, Jan. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- South Beach Diet® today unveiled a new addition to its popular family of nutritious and convenient foods — rich, creamy South Beach Diet® Snack Smoothies. Packed with protein and fiber that satisfies all the way to the next meal, Snack Smoothies contain only 100 guilt-free calories. And, unlike most shakes sold in the diet aisle, Snack Smoothies have no artificial flavors or sweeteners. South Beach Diet Snack Smoothies are available in three taste-tempting flavors — Strawberry Banana, Wild Berry, and Perfectly Peach — and are in stores now.
"I'm so happy to be learning healthy habits for life. It has been so great learning how to make better food choices for me and my family. The Smoothies are a delicious part of my diet plan. I got my first compliment last week and my fat pants are almost falling off of me now. It is awesome motivation to keep going," said Jenna, a 30-year-old mom from West Palm Beach, FL, who has embraced the South Beach Diet for the last 10 weeks and has already lost 20 pounds!*
"We're pleased with the high level of consumer excitement about the South Beach Diet Snack Smoothies," added Elise Donahue, CEO of the South Beach Diet. "We like the idea of shaking things up in the diet aisle by providing a refreshing, fruity, nutritious snack that smoothly satisfies taste and hunger and is a perfect fit in a balanced, weight-loss plan. These Snack Smoothies are delicious treats, and a great snack, whether you're on a diet or not."
New South Beach Diet Snack Smoothies are shelf-stable, single-serve, ready-to-drink smoothies that help you feel full and satisfied between meals, with 6 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber. Made with natural sweeteners like monk fruit extract, ounce for ounce, each thick, rich Smoothie has 45% less sugar than the leading weight-loss shake.**
South Beach Diet Snack Smoothies join the trusted brand's popular health-directed products, including tasty Sweet Delights — natural sunflower seeds and soynuts coated in real dark chocolate, its high protein and fiber Meal Bars, 100-Calorie Snack Bars such as Fudgy Chocolate Mint, natural whole-grain Good to Go Bars, and delicious Good to Go Bars — Extra Fiber.
*Expected weight loss 1-2 lbs. per week when following the South Beach Diet® plan and exercise.
**South Beach Diet Smoothies: 8g sugar per 8 fl. oz., vs. the leading weight-loss shake, which has 18g sugar per 10 fl. oz.
