SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Snow Monkey, creators of the new Superfood Ice Treat that is reinventing ice cream, announced today the release of three new flavors: Matcha Green Tea, Passion Fruit, and Cinnamon. The new flavors, crafted with all-natural, plant-based ingredients free from all eight major allergens, help expand Snow Monkey’s offerings for its mission to change the way America eats and upgrade ice cream, one pint at a time.
By upgrading ice cream to tasty, intelligent fuel for a healthy, active life, Snow Monkey’s newest flavor innovations continue to give athletes an indulgent treat without the guilty splurge, provide picky eaters with a delicious yet nutritious breakfast, and satiate dessert-lovers’ sweet cravings – all while sparking a movement where everyone has access to affordable food that is great for our bodies and the environment.
“Snow Monkey is the only ice cream alternative that allows consumers to enjoy their favorite treat for breakfast, post-workout fuel, or indulgence without any of the guilt,” said co-founder and CEO Rachel Geicke. “We are continuously working toward our mission of reinventing America’s favorite treats, and the ability to appeal to additional taste preferences with the launch of our new flavors takes us one step closer.”
The latest flavors from Snow Monkey are:
- Matcha Green Tea: Matcha is one of the most powerful superfoods in the wild. With 17 times more antioxidants than blueberries and 60 times more than spinach, it only makes sense for us to create a pint of this green goodness and with only 135 calories and 7g of protein per serving, you can’t go wrong.
- Passion Fruit: Our pint of Passion Fruit will surely satiate. Passion fruit is loaded with antioxidants including vitamin C for a stronger immune system, beta-carotene for better eyesight, and polyphenols which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Turmeric is also an ingredient in this flavor, which research has found aids in reducing inflammation. This sweet treat is the perfect way to kick off your day with only 130 calories and 7g of protein, per serving.
- Cinnamon: Made with Ceylon cinnamon, the only type of cinnamon that is low in coumarin - a polyphenol known to cause inflammation in the liver, this perfect pint combines the sweetness we all know and love without the guilt. Research shows Ceylon cinnamon contains anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antimicrobial properties meaning it lends invaluable support to your cardiovascular and immune systems. With 130 calories and 7g of protein, per serving, this classic treat will have you reaching for the spoons.
All Snow Monkey products are vegan, paleo and Non-GMO Project verified with key ingredients like bananas, roasted sunflower seeds and hemp seeds. Snow Monkey’s three new flavors are available for pre-order online at snow-monkey.com and are rolling out at select retailers.
Snow Monkey’s disruptive new concept was created by two female entrepreneurs, Rachel Geicke and Mariana Ferreira, while they were students at Boston University. The former collegiate athletes were inspired to create Snow Monkey after their search for a truly healthy frozen treat that didn’t sacrifice deliciousness repeatedly came up empty. The recent Chobani Food Incubator graduates have ambitious visions for the future of the frozen aisle and the next frontier of food.
