To Smoothie? Or Not To Smoothie?

[ 0 ] October 5, 2017 |

I am not into smoothies.  There.  I put it out there.  This the main reason why I was reluctant to try out Tropical Smoothie Café.  With a little arm twisting, curiosity and a look at the scale, I decided it was time to change up my tune.  Glad I did.  Tropical Smoothie Café is pretty darn good for the smoothie lover.  Not too sweet but not too bland, you leave Tropical Smoothie feeling like you are full but not overloaded with the bad stuff.  The bad stuff being hidden sugars and preservatives.

The Detox Island Green was the drink of choice.  It is characterized as a Superfood Smoothie and it definitely has all the characteristics to claim this title:  Spinach, kale, mango, pineapple, banana and fresh ginger.  SUPER.  FOOD.  After a week of drinking too many mojitos in Cuba and snacking on key lime pie in Key West, spinach and kale needed to enter my digestive system.

Am I a smoothie lover now?  I could get with this, especially since Tropical Smoothie Café sold me on the fact that they not only do smoothies but food too.  Now we are talking.
