Butlers, forced by billionaires to mash piles of fruit by hand, invented blenders to prevent carpal tunnel and subsequent demotion to human towel rack. Reap the benefits of their creation with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of smoothies and bubble teas at Boba Smoothie in Seattle, Tacoma, and Federal Way.
Boba Smoothie slings fruity, nutrient-packed libations that bolster health and delight taste buds. All smoothies ($2.99–$4.99) meld fresh fruits with a low-carb and dairy-free natural base, delivering blasts of nutrients in harmonious marriages of berries, mangoes, and pineapples. Power-boost smoothies ($3.99–$5.99) up the body-boosting ante by tossing additives such as bee pollen, creatine, wheatgrass, or Demolition Man action figures into the blender. Sip the siphoned essence of carrots and pomegranates with fresh juice ($3.99–$5.99), or squish tapioca pearls between molars with bubble tea ($3.49–$5.49) that hides pearls in flavors such as green tea or blackberry.
Every day, the staff at Boba Smoothie blend fresh fruits and other ingredients to create smoothies, teas, and non-dairy milk teas. But the sweet flavors of fruit and tea aren't the drinks' only feature—the cups fill with chewy boba pearls, which add a burst of texture to every taste like a lego made of candy. Staff members also serve up fresh scoops of gelato in such flavors as mango, coconut, and pistachio.
