Dannon, White Plains, N.Y., and Seattle-based Evolution Fresh, producer of cold-pressed, High Pressure Processed juice, have partnered to create Evolution Fresh Smoothies and Evolution Fresh Greek yogurt products, including fruit and Greek yogurt parfaits and fruit-on-the-bottom Greek yogurts.
The smoothies are made with Greek nonfat yogurt and cold-pressed 100% real fruit and vegetable juice. Each smoothie contains no artificial sweeteners, preservatives, colors or flavors. The on-the-go smoothies can be customized by adding fresh kale, protein powder or extra Greek yogurt for an additional boost of protein or nutrients. The suggested retail price for a 16-ounce cup is $5.95. It’s available in 4,300 Starbucks stores in the Pacific Northwest, Northern California and in select Starbucks locations within grocery stores nationwide, and available in three flavors:
- Sweet Greens: Made from an assortment of green vegetables with mango and banana, plus Greek nonfat yogurt.
- Strawberry: A unique take on the classic strawberry smoothie enhanced with apple and banana, plus Greek nonfat yogurt.
- Mango Carrot: A mango smoothie with carrot, plus Greek nonfat yogurt.
The Evolution Fresh Greek yogurt parfaits, inspired by Dannon, are available in 6,000 Starbucks stores nationwide as of May. The parfaits are made from Greek nonfat yogurt, granola and fruit. They will be available year-round in strawberry and dark sweet cherry varieties, and seasonally with fresh berries and honey options. The suggested retail price for one parfait ranges from $3.75 to $4.25.
The Evolution Fresh fruit-on-the-bottom nonfat Greek yogurts, inspired by Dannon, are made with Greek nonfat yogurt and flavors of real fruit. The yogurts contain no added flavors, artificial sweeteners or preservatives. The product is sold in eye-catching clear packaging, so consumers can easily see the ingredients. The four flavors are — blueberry, black cherry, raspberry blackberry and pineapple passion fruit. With a suggested retail price of $1.69, the Greek yogurts rolled out in select grocery stores in May and are expected to be on shelves nationwide in July.
