The staff at Healthy Essentials blends a mélange of nutrient-enriched smoothies, refreshing teas, and cool frozen coffees, which are complemented by bountiful baked goods. Cool down a piping-hot palate with more than 20 varieties of smoothies, including blue mango and berry chocolate ($5.50 for 16 oz.). For an extra boost during mundane daily activities such as filing papers or reading to your plants, add Smoothieceuticals—nutritive mix-ins such as ginkgo biloba, ginseng, and vitamin C that bolster good health. Seven types of black tea and nine types of green tea ($1.99+) dampen dry jugulars, and whole-grain muffins ($2.49 each), whole-wheat bagels ($1.89), and chocolate-chip cookies ($1.49) occupy empty stomach space. Healthy Essentials' drive-thru window accommodates guests on the go as well as talking cars too embarrassed to come indoors.
