What You'll Get
No longer reserved for handsome astronauts, a liquid lunch provides all the essential nutrients of a solid meal, but without the risk of being impaled by a stalk of broccoli. Sip a bit of health with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $15 worth of smoothies and healthy snacks at Planet Smoothie, a progressive blendery founded on healthy, innovative ingredients. This Groupon is valid at any of the following three Planet Smoothie stores: Dunwoody, Vinings, or Midtown.
Craft a rope made of straws and climb the food pyramid with Planet Smoothie's menu as a trusty, yet tasty Sherpa. Thirst quenchers are grouped according to blasts, which range from the protein-rich workout blast to the vitamin-C-loaded immunity blast. For post-gym Planet Smoothie consumption, wrap your muscled eyebrows around a Big Bang, loaded with strawberries, bananas, vanilla, and your choice of protein or workout blast. If you catch a tickle in your throat, breeze through an anti-sick sampling of the Screamsicle, a pineapple-peach concoction with orange juice, yogurt, orange sherbet, and 230 percent of your daily vitamin C. To simultaneously support breast-cancer research and taste buds, sip on the Pink Promise smoothie, a blend high in antioxidants. Smoothies range in size from the after-jog-appropriate 22-ounce ($4.49) to the meal-substituting 44-ounce large ($6.55), and all drinks may be customized or supplemented upon request (try a Merlin's Mix—a protein-packed powder that turns your smoothie into a meal replacement, $2.99 additional). Planet Smoothie uses Pro-Yo, a frozen yogurt that is naturally fat free, low calorie, a friend to the digestive system, and sweetened with Stevia. The Vinings and Midtown locations also offer wheatgrass shots ($1.75–$3.25 for a 1- to 2-ounce shot).
Whether you're stopping in for increased performance or a decreased internal temperature, feel free to peruse Planet Smoothie's modest stock of health-conscious chewables, including Ostrim Protein Beef Bars ($1.99). Likewise, the shop also distributes individually packaged blasts, which come in handy when your car crashes into an unattended fruit stand ($0.75). The prices listed are for the Piedmont Ave. location in Midtown.
This Groupon is only valid for the three listed participating stores.
