The blender jockeys behind the Smoothie King counter whip vitamin-packed fruit, protein powders, and herbal nutrients into a menu of frozen concoctions that can help boost energy and burn fat, among other functions. Stocked with bananas, papayas, and strawberries, an electrolyte-packed Super Punch smoothie can replenish nutrients lost while bench-pressing Carmen Miranda’s 200-pound fruit hat, and a high-protein Lean1 chocolate smoothie aids diet efforts by sating cocoa cravings without excess sugar. Alternatively, electrify sweet teeth by sipping a Peanut Power smoothie, a creamy blend of freshly ground peanut butter and bananas that can be plugged into a wall socket to recharge its flavors. Though not included in today’s Groupon, customers can also choose to add enhancers to boost the vitamin, protein, or fiber content of any smoothie for an additional fee.
In the late 1960s, seeking a remedy for his allergies and low blood sugar, Smoothie King founder Steve Kuhnau began mixing fruits, nutrients, and proteins in his home blender. The positive impact that followed inspired Steve to share his concoctions and open the first Smoothie King in 1973. Today, with more than 600 locations scattered across the United States and Korea, Smoothie King presides over 90 different flavors, all made with real fruit, natural juices, and specialized enhancers. The business keeps its ever-growing selection of slurp-worthy drinks categorized by their nutritional function, including Trim Down, Get Energy, and Indulge.
