Starbucks launched its Evolution Fresh Smoothies Line today in stores on the West Coast as part of its new partnership with Dannon Yogurts.
The smoothies are now available regionally in Starbucks stores in northern California, Washington, Oregon and parts of Idaho.
Nationally, they can be found in Starbucks stores that are located inside a grocery location, such as Target.
These drinks are made with Dannon Greek yogurt and cold pressed juice for a healthy, tasty treat; the Sweet Greens smoothie is made with green juice.
