Like assets and evil snowmen, fruits are easier to deal with in liquid form. Wash down nature's nectar with today's Groupon: for $10, you get four smoothies or shakes at Franks and Toppings (a $19.96 value).
Franks and Toppings’ cooks dispense gourmet fast food washed down with rich smoothies and milkshakes made with cholesterol- and lactose-free, low-fat frozen yogurt. Fuse fruit and low-fat fro-yo into smoothie flavors including tropical mango, mixed berry, and strawberry banana, then add a shot of protein or wheat grass for $0.99 extra. Most of the 16-ounce smoothies have fewer than 300 calories, which can be easily burned off by boisterously reciting tongue twisters for five minutes. Milkshakes blend fruity flavors of strawberry or blueberry, as well as more decadent cookies-and-cream or peanut-butter iterations. For an extra $1, patrons can enjoy liquid banana splits or inundate glasses with thick Nutella topping. A variety of natural fruits and toppings allows patrons to concoct customized frozen gulps or flavor-filled snowballs to save in the freezer until summer.
