Healthy Dark Cherry Smoothie

Using cashew milk will be your new favorite smoothie trick

The Vitamin Shoppe is excited to introduce AppeFIT™, an all-natural appetite and craving controller and the perfect addition to your morning smoothie.

AppeFIT™ may help readers reduce the urge for an 11 AM hunger snack, providing a full feeling that lasts until lunch! Derived from an all-natural spinach extract known as Appethyl, the benefits of AppeFIT™ include:
- 5-hour fullness that reduces hunger and cravings
- Supports your willpower to maintain a healthy diet!

Proven effective with a study conducted by Pennington Biomedical Research Center, Appethyl helps to slow fat digestion, in turn increasing the body's production of hormones that lead to a satisfied feeling.

AppeFIT™ is debuting as part of the Vitamin Shoppe’s NEXT STEP® line of weight management products:
- Available as of mid-April at VitaminShoppe.com and stores nationwide
- Two flavors: Apple Punch and Mixed Berry
- Retail: $29.99
