Kick-start your new year goals with these three delicious and healthy smoothies from Suwanee’s Planet Smoothie.
For more than a decade, Planet Smoothie in Suwanee Town Center has been mixing up delicious and satisfying smoothies for locals looking for a healthier option for food on the go. Made with fresh fruits and greens, smoothies are a great way to help you meet your new year goals since they offer a lower calorie, lower sugar, and higher protein portable snack or meal replacement option. We recently asked owners Karen Hendrix and Kristin Scott to share three smoothies to help kick-start a healthy new year.
Not only is peanut butter a filling and protein-packed food, it also contains nutrients like vitamin E, magnesium, iron, selenium and vitamin B6. Planet Smoothie’s PB Blues combines peanut butter with blueberries, which pack a health punch of their own with a healthy dose of fiber, vitamin K and manganese. One cup of blueberries provides 24 percent of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C.
