It has been a while since the last post because we've been so busy! A lot has been added to the menu since the last update, so we'll get right to it!
We now have VEGAN smoothies! The Mango Kale and Dark Chocolate Banana are great flavors with completely vegan ingredients. Using SunWarrior plant based protein, natural fruits and vegetables, and our world famous fruits these smoothies are excellent options for those customers who desire a more natural smoothie. SunWarrior protein is also available for purchase in some stores.
The PUMPKIN SPICE smoothie made a return this year and was one of the best selling smoothies across the world in October and November. Served with either Greek or Frozen Yogurt, there is not a better way to drink your pumpkin pie. It also has a half serving of our Immune Enhancer, adding a boost of Vitamin-C to help fight the cold and flu season. Pumpkin is a limited time offer, so some stores may already be out of stock.
The DARK CHOCOLATE smoothies are the latest addition to the menu. There are three different options: Dark Chocolate Strawberry, Dark Chocolate Orange, and Dark Chocolate Mint (for a limited time). These smoothies will satisfy any sweet tooth with a rich dark chocolate flavor, but use Lean1 and Gladiator Proteins to remain low calorie with high quality protein.
Unfortunately to make room for all the new flavors some other ingredients were discontinued. Black Cherry, Coconut, and Pomegranate will no longer be on the menu.
We recently delivered smoothies to the HappyFeet Nashville kids soccer program on the last day of their season. These kids are age 2-5 learning social skills, developing physical abilities, and creating memories all by staying active and playing soccer.
This program falls perfectly in line with Smoothie King's mission to "Inspire people to live a healthy and active lifestyle." When the opportunity presented itself for us to be part of this program, we couldn't say no.
Visit HappyFeet Nashville here for more information.
Keep your eyes and taste buds alert for the new Greek Yogurt smoothies coming this month! On June 16th we will launch 3 new flavors, and 2 more Kids Cups, all using the healthy benefits of Greek Yogurt.
Smoothie King has been working with Chobani to create some very tasty flavors to use for the new Greek Yogurt Smoothies, including Pineapple Mango, Strawberry Blueberry, and Orange Carrot.
There will be coupons and samples going out to customers during the first week, so start getting excited!
Smoothie King recently launched new Veggie Blend smoothies, introducing Carrot and Kale to the menu. The Apple Kiwi Kale, Berry Carrot Dream, and Carrot Kale Dream are the newest recipes to be offered.
Now Smoothie King is offering a new refreshing way for customers to eat their vegetables. Each of our new smoothies contain a combination of fruit mixed with carrot, kale, or a combination of both. Both vegetables have a mild sweet flavor that is enhanced when blended with the fruits in each smoothie.
Carrot is low in calories and a good source of fiber, B-vitamins, and potassium. They are noted for their extremely high content of vitamin A and beta carotene.
Kale is also low in calories and a good source of fiber, iron, and vitamins C & K. Kale also has more calcium per calorie than milk. Kale is also high in sulfur, and can help rid the body of toxins and keep the liver functioning at a high level.

Restaurant to Surprise Fans Who Share Their Inspirational Stories
After being part of a moving Valentine’s Day surprise, Smoothie King of Nashville is excited to announce a new fan appreciation promotion that will reward those with amazing stories and a love for smoothies.
A few days before Valentine’s Day, Smoothie King of Nashville received a Facebook message from Jennifer Carter of Jacksonville, Fl. The message told the story of her sister who lives near Ft. Campbell with her husband, First Lieutenant Jake LaGue, who is stationed at the base, and is scheduled to be deployed to Afghanistan later this year. Her sister Samantha, who is 20 weeks pregnant with the couple’s first child, is miles away from her family and friends. With hopes of delivering a special Valentine’s gift, Carter asked in the message if the West End location of Smoothie King would consider delivering Samantha her go to pregnancy craving, the Pineapple Surf Smoothie, as a Valentine’s Day gift and a present to celebrate the half-way mark of her pregnancy.
Smoothie King gladly accepted and made the day an even bigger celebration by delivering free smoothies to all of Samantha’s co-workers as well.
“We had such an amazing time planning and taking part in the surprise that when we left the event and collected our thoughts, we all agreed that we could not wait to do this again,” said Owner Paul McCulloch, Smoothie King of Nashville. “I pulled together some of our managers and our marketing team, and we put our heads together on how we could select a person or group to surprise with smoothies each quarter, highlighting a special accomplishment, or life milestone.”
So the week of May 14, we will surprise someone special with his or her favorite smoothie. Beginning today, we will begin taking nominations for the “Surprise Smoothie” award, and will select the next winner one week prior to the May 14 reveal.
“Samantha and Jake are making a tremendous sacrifice. They are not only living away from their families, but also they will bring a beautiful baby girl into the world this summer, and Jake will fight for our country in Afghanistan,” said McCulloch. “This couple and their loving family showed us what life was all about on Friday, life’s special moments. We so enjoyed watching the two of them smile, and cannot wait to do it again for another deserving person.”
Are you a Smoothie King fan in the Middle Tennessee area? Do you have a story that deserves a special delivery? By sending your story to Smoothie King Nashville through their Facebook page, or online at http://www.smoothiekingnashville.com/surprise-smoothies.html, you, your office, your family and friends, or who knows who, could receive a special day like Samantha, her family and her office did on Valentine’s Day.
Military Mommy-To-Be’s Craving Feeds More than 40
Smoothie King of Nashville made Valentine’s Day extra special for a Military mommy-to-be, and her husband, First Lieutenant Jake LaGue, who is scheduled to be deployed to Afghanistan this year. Smoothie King of Nashville surprised Samantha LaGue with her go to pregnancy craving, the Pineapple Surf Smoothie.
Samantha is a military wife who left her family in Jacksonville, Fl., two years ago to move with her husband, Jake, who is stationed at Ft. Campbell. Samantha, who is 20 weeks pregnant with the couple’s first child, celebrated hitting the half way mark in her pregnancy on Valentine’s Day. Samantha and her husband do not have any family in Middle Tennessee, and when Samantha’s sister, Jennifer Carter, who lives in Jacksonville along with their parents, and Samantha’s in-laws, realized that this milestone would fall on Valentine’s Day, she wanted to do something special for her sister from miles away.
Jennifer sent a Facebook message to Smoothie King of Nashville, and asked if they would help her send a hug and her sister’s favorite pregnancy craving, the Pineapple Surf Smoothie, to her sister at work on Valentine’s Day. The company, who does not deliver, read her story, and as soon as they saw Samantha was a military wife, they jumped at the chance to make her day special.
“I read the message, and then read it again to confirm I was reading it right,” said Smoothie King of Nashville Owner, Paul McCulloch. “We have never received a request to deliver a smoothie, but reading her story, we wanted to provide this young lady with something that would not only make her and the baby feel good, but also it was something we could do to help her family do something special from miles away in honor of her and her husbands sacrifice for our country.”
So the plan was put into action, and over two days, with the help of Samantha’s office scheduling a “fake meeting” for her on Valentine’s Day, First Lieutenant Jake LaGue making arrangements to come down to Nashville to be at the special delivery, and Smoothie King of Nashville arranging their West End location to not only prepare a large Smoothie for the mommy-to-be and get the truck ready to go on its first delivery, but also prepare smoothies for all of Samantha’s co-workers in honor of Samantha, her husband’s service to our country, and Valentine’s Day. Samantha’s family even ordered flowers from Emma’s flowers, which ironically is the name of the soon-to-be LaGue baby, Emma Caroline, scheduled to be born on, of course, July 4, 2014. Already an All-American baby!
