Starbucks Introduces Smoothies as Part of Lighter Summer Menu in UK

Starbucks has launched a new smoothie range in UK stores.

The three smoothies - Green, Berry and Orange & Ginger are made with fresh fruit and vegetables and blended with natural cloudy apple juice or coconut milk.

The new nutritious smoothies contain no added sugar and provide customers with one of their five-a-day, per serving.

In January, Starbucks announced its health and wellness commitment to reduce added sugar by 25% by 2020, to continue to help customers make informed and improved nutritional choices.

Today Starbucks has already reached its 2016 sugar reduction target, reducing added sugar in syrups (vanilla, hazelnut and caramel) by 5%.

Mini Frappuccino has also launched this week, available for a limited time. This new 10 oz cup size gives customers even more ways to customise their favourite Frappuccino in a smaller size this summer.

Starbucks EMEA research & development and quality & regulatory for vice president Sara Bruce-Goodwin said: "We're delighted to be launching our new smoothie range this summer, growing our menu to continue to meet the needs of our customers.

"There are thousands of ways to customise our drinks and by continuing to make changes towards our 2020 health and wellness commitments, we hope to provide customers with even more choices."
