Summer Brings New Fruit Smoothies To Dunkin’ Donuts
July 07, 2015 // Franchising.com // CANTON, Mass. - This
summer, Dunkin' Donuts is introducing guests to one of its most
significant menu expansions of the year, as the brand has
officially added Fruit Smoothies and other new frozen beverages as
additions to its lineup. Beginning today, participating Dunkin'
Donuts restaurants will offer two varieties of freshly prepared
Fruit Smoothies, Strawberry Banana and Tropical Mango. At 260
calories or less for a 16 oz. serving, both Smoothies are made with
real fruit and creamy low-fat yogurt.
Dunkin' Donuts' newest beverage offerings also include the
Frozen Dunkaccino®, a frozen version of Dunkin' Donuts' popular hot
Dunkaccino®. The new Frozen Dunkaccino is an indulgent beverage
with a unique blend of mocha and coffee flavors. Dunkin' Donuts is
also serving a new Coolatta® Lite, a lighter version of Dunkin'
Donuts' popular frozen Coolatta® beverages. Coolatta Lite varieties
offer guests lower calorie versions of the Coolatta, ranging from
33-80% fewer calories for a Frozen Coffee Coolatta, Minute Maid
Orange Coolatta, Strawberry Coolatta and Vanilla Bean Coolatta, as
well as the Summer LTO Coolatta flavors of Frozen Arnold Palmer
Coolatta Lite and Mango Passionfruit Coolatta Lite.

choices our on-the-go guests can enjoy anywhere, at any time of
day," he said.
