THRIVE is an ideal meal replacement option that fits into any diet, making it sweet and simple to stick to New Years resolutions. With as much protein as an egg, as much calcium as a cup of milk and as much potassium as a banana, THRIVE provides convenient, balanced nutrition to anyone that may need it – from busy moms on-the-go and dieters, to caretakers of the elderly and parents of picky eaters, and everyone in between. Each cup contains 250 calories, 9g protein (18% dv), 3g fiber (12% dv), 520mg potassium (15% dv), four live strains of beneficial probiotics, and 24 vitamins and minerals.

Available in four flavors – Homemade Vanilla, Milk Chocolate, Chocolate Fudge and Strawberry – THRIVE tastes just as delicious as traditional ice cream flavors with the added goodness of complete nutrition. Reaching for a cup of THRIVE at meal time is just one of many smart moves to help maintain a lasting commitment to your health.

About THRIVE® Frozen Nutrition

The THRIVE® Frozen Nutrition concept began almost a decade ago, with the idea of providing an ice cream like product that packs nutrition into a great tasting form. Ice cream and dairy products are a natural carrier of great tasting nutrition such as proteins, calcium, vitamins and minerals. At the same time, ice cream is a favorite food of most Americans. Because of its unique nutritional offerings and broad appeal, ice cream-like products are a natural fit for added nutrition lacking in the diets of many consumers today. For more, visit
