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 $7, you get $15 worth of smoothies and fresh Latin fare at Oceanside Frutas in Oceanside.
Oceanside Frutas sates seekers of fresh fare with a bevy of noshes and smoothies, inspired by South American cuisine and crafted from fresh, natural ingredients. Sip on a sea of fruit infusions, such as the Mucho Mango, mottled with strawberries, passion juice, and pineapple sherbet, or La Vida Loca, packed with peanut butter, banana, and shavings from a giant yogurt sculpture of Ricky Martin ($4.45 each).
Those wishing to transport their frosty fluids on an edible raft can anchor incisors in the vegetable frittata and toast ($5.75) or form a dory from the spinach salad with apples and raspberry vinaigrette. Tortas, teeming with grilled eggplant ($6.25) or pork loin ($5.95), make for savory sustenance, and the fresh seasonal fruit salad corrals crisp tree dwellers, including bewildered Johnny Appleseeds, in a juicy medley ($4.50/small, $6.95/large).
