"Hot" and "Cool" Tastes Headline the Summer Menu at Tropical Smoothie CaféBlazing hot weather is sweeping the nation – with record-highs becoming the new normal for summer. Thankfully, Tropical Smoothie Café is promoting exciting seasonal menu offerings designed to help guests beat the heat with better-for-you food and beverage options. Thai Chicken is bringing the crisp cool flavorful blend of cilantro, carrots, and wontons to both wraps and salads, while the refreshing Watermelon Mojito smoothie spotlights the cooling combination of fruit and mint. The Watermelon Mojito smoothie will be available through July and August, at participating locations while supplies last.

“We know consumers are looking for lighter options in the warmer months, without having to sacrifice taste,” said Jennie Hong, Senior Director of Brand Marketing and Strategy for Tropical Smoothie Café. “Our summer options put seasonal flavors and fresh food front and center in the delicious, better-for-you way people have come to expect from Tropical Smoothie Café.”

Available in a toasted wrap, Tropical Smoothie Café’s Thai Chicken includes grilled chicken, fresh cilantro, romaine, carrots, wontons, sesame seeds, scallions, and a Thai peanut sauce. The combination is also available over a salad of mixed romaine and spinach that comes in under 350 calories. Guests can also go for a Spicy Thai version featuring the option of Sriracha aoili and Frank’s Sweet Chili Sauce. The Watermelon Mojito smoothie is a perfect counterpoint – with fresh watermelon and sweet strawberries, blended with lime and mint.

“Our ‘Eat Better. Feel Better.’ philosophy really starts to hit home when you’re out in the sun, working, playing, or enjoying the outdoors,” added Hong. “You want foods and beverages that keep you going instead of slowing you down. Thai Chicken and Watermelon Mojito deliver that with every bite or sip.”
