Clean Energy, a clean-label, plant-based sports nutrition company based in Ann Arbor, announced the launch of its on-the-go smoothie packets containing only organic fruits and vegetables as its first product.
The smoothie packets are now available in its first flavor combination — banana, strawberry, blueberry, spinach, and flax seed. Clean Energy smoothies aims to provide the nutrition of a homemade smoothie with the convenience of a packaged food and the electrolyte boost of a leading energy gel.
“The terms ‘natural’ and ‘natural flavors’ have become misleading and confusing, and don’t always mean what consumers expect,” says Ted Volz II, founder of Clean Energy. “We believe that consumers deserve to know what’s in their food, and that’s why Clean Energy eliminates uncertainty and offers full transparency.
“Clean label is an important part of eating healthy and eating healthy can help you feel and look better, which is exactly what Clean Energy works to deliver in a convenient and nutritious format.”
The company says the smoothies are a quick and easy way to eat clean and nourish your body with organic fruits and vegetables, making them a great on-the-go snack for a hike, bike, canoe, climb, or run.
Clean Energy’s single serve smoothies are shelf-stable and contain 70 calories, 10 grams of natural, plant-based sugar, and key electrolytes for performance replenishment. They are available for purchase now in an 8-pack case of 3.5-ounce packets for $24.
