Fresh fruit is all well and good, but it doesn't play to most Americans' lazy stance on chewing. Today's Groupon turns healthy fruit into healthy-smooth smoothies: for $5, you get $10 worth of fruit-based libations and nutritious foods at Robeks on Telephone Road. Juice smoothies are an excellent tool for healthy lifestyles and are a delicious strategy for getting your daily fruits and veggies that doesn't involve pretending to be a Nigerian prince with a surplus of money and a surfeit of bananas.
Robeks uses the freshest ingredients to craft made-to-order drinks and eats that will make you feel guilt-free about grabbing a quick bite. Join the berry party with berry smoothies, such as the Banzai Blueberry, Strawnana Berry, and Cranberry Quest, all of which pulverize fruit together with nonfat yogurt and sodium-free ice ($3.50 junior, $4.50 regular, $5.50 large). For more pulchritudinous pulverized pulp, energize your day with power smoothies, including the Cardio Cooler (with a base of passion-fruit-mango juice), which blend juices, sherbets, soy and whey protein, and vitamin boosters into an elixir that that will revitalize even the most workout-withered body ($5.50 regular, $6.50 large). If you're worried all this smoothage is making your teeth flabby, fill up your internal engine with a nourishing bite from Robeks' selection of sandwiches, salads, gourmet pretzels, power muffins, and more. Few comestibles hug your body quite like a chicken-pesto focaccia sandwich combined with a tall glass of carrot-orange-ginger juice (the G-Snap).
As milk, creek water, and experimental government super-solider serums increasingly fall out of favor among fitness fanatics, juice looks to be the nutritious beverage of the 21st century. Today's Groupon will keep you energetic and healthy enough to enjoy all the robot insurrections, alien invasions, and de-evolutions that our bright future promises.
