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 at City Blends Smoothie Cafe, located inside the Pine Ridge Racquet & Health Club.
City Blends Smoothie Cafe offers fresh fruit concoctions to quench thirsts of every sort, whether you crave a sweet slurpable to start your day, a protein-packed beverage to help you recharge after a strenuous workout, or a low-sugar bribe for your dentist. If you're watching your figure, swap out an afternoon snack for a SlenderU Lite smoothie, loaded with raspberries, pineapple, strawberries, and burner protein ($4.47, 16 oz.). For something more indulgent but still boasting health benefits, slurp the Oreos-Over Manhattan, made with magic milk, chocolate syrup, Oreos, and gainer protein ($4.75, 16 oz.). Metabolisms quiver at the very sight of the Elvis, which shakes up the classic chocolate, peanut butter, and banana combination with the addition of burner protein ($4.75, 16 oz.).
Smoothies come in 16 oz. ($4.47–$4.75), 24 oz. ($5.13), and kid-sized ($3.59–$3.89) portions, and add-ins can be added to anything on the smoothie smorgasbord for $0.50. To take your tasty treat to the next level, request that the fat-loss pack, energy pack, vita pack, or glutamine pack be added to your beverage by a trained dove flying overhead or an equally skillful smoothie-maker behind the counter.
