Most people prefer smoothies—which turn fruits into irresistibly silky beverages—over their competitor, roughies, which transform fruits into hardened criminals. Go the smooth route with today's Groupon: for $7, you get a punch card for three simple, tropical, or low-cal 24-ounce smoothies at Pure Cafe in Wexford (up to a $14.45 value).
Pure Cafe’s smoothie-smiths craft a diverse menu of frozen blended treats using real fruits and juices. Upgrade a favorite teacher’s desk apple with the Very Berry, which blends strawberry juice and raspberry sherbet with a vibrant trio of strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries. Or seek refuge from fructose-intolerant abominable snowmen under Mango Madness’s avalanche of papaya-mango juice, mangos, and orange sherbet. Raspberry Pomegranate Punch infuses mouths with a tag team of apple and pomegranate juices grappling with raspberry sherbet and bananas. Upon request, staff members can mix in a free natural powdered booster to supplement energy or grant beginner superpowers, such as the ability to rip phone-book covers in half.
Staff members can also tailor smoothies to suit customers’ dietary needs and allergy sensitivities. Customers can pick up smoothies from the drive-through, or order inside and practice blinking Morse code to owls on a wide outdoor patio. WiFi is always free, and though not included in this deal, customers can peruse the café’s wraps, soups, and salads.
