LOS ANGELES, June 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today thinkThin®, a leader in creating nutritious, protein-rich foods, announced the launch of single-serve pouches in its High Protein Smoothie Mix just in time for National Smoothie Day, on June 21. High Protein Smoothie Mix combines the three essential building blocks for consumers to make a nutritious, delicious smoothie at home: real fruit, a protein boost, and beneficial mix-ins like chia seeds.
According to market research leader, Mintel, demand for smoothies is soaring with packaged ready-to-drink smoothies projected to hit $869 million in 2016 and blender sales already topping $1 billion annually. thinkThin High Protein Smoothie Mix capitalizes on these trends, as each single-serve packet delivers a nutritional punch with 15 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber, real fruit pieces, and 160mg of omega-3 ALA's from chia seeds and ground flaxseed. Just add water, ice and blend for an energizing smoothie drink in delicious fruit combinations including Blueberry Banana and Strawberry Raspberry. For a more indulgent smoothie experience, thinkThin also offers a Protein Smoothie Mix in Peanut Butter Banana flavor.
"A first-of-its-kind product, made with real, whole fruit, we're making our High Protein Smoothie Mix even more convenient with single serving packet options," said Cherry Joh, Senior Marketing Director of thinkThin. "In addition to tasting great, our smoothie mix satisfies the growing consumer demand for protein from a variety of sources, which is why we included GMO-free, plant-based protein from almonds and sunflower seeds."
To celebrate the company's newest offering, thinkThin will be giving away free single-serve packets of its new High Protein Smoothie Mix (while supplies last) with one lucky winner receiving a year's supply of the smoothie mix of their choice. Fans can simply visit thinkThin's Facebook page on June 21, National Smoothie Day, to enter for a chance to win.
thinkThin's new product line of smoothie mixes can be found in the Protein Powder aisle and is currently available at Target, Whole Foods and online.
