Juicing separates fruit's healthful essence from its tasteless rind while eliminating the chances of a swallowed seed taking root in your stomach. Squeeze yourself a nutritious snack with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a punch card for five 24-ounce juice smoothies at Juice it Up! in Long Beach (a $21.25 value).
The blenders at Juice it Up! crank out a made-to-order menu of nutritious smoothies in a slew of fusion flavors. Rather than construct a fort out of kleenex boxes, sippers guard against flu season with a cup of Orange Blitz, where orange juice blends with blueberries, bananas, and orange sherbet. Sweet pineapple juice and lime sherbet mingle with a chorus line of peaches in the Congo Lime, and lemonade infuses a blend of raspberry juice, strawberries, and pineapple sherbet in the Lucky Lemon Punch. Though not covered by this Groupon, patrons can bolster their beverages with shots of wheatgrass, soy protein, ginkgo biloba, and other natural supplements to boost bodily strength and immunity without bench-pressing an ambulance.
