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 healthfully smooth smoothies: for $5, you get $10 worth of fruit-based libations and nutritious foods at Robeks Juice. Choose from one of 17 area locations, listed in the sidebar.
Robeks Juice 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 non-fat yogurt and sodium-free ice ($3.45 junior, $4.45 regular, $5.45 large). For more pulchritudinous pulverized pulp, energize your day with power smoothies, including the cardio cooler (with a base of passion fruit and mango juice), which blend juices, sherbets, soy and whey protein, and vitamin boosters ($5.45 regular, $6.45 large) into an elixir that will revitalize even the most workout-withered body. Bites include protein-packed Kim & Scott's gourmet pretzels such as pizza or spinach feta ($2.45 each), and the hair-raising goodness of Lenny & Larry's power muffins or cookies with flavors such as banana, chocolate chip, pumpkin, and more ($1.99 each).
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.

- I like this location a lot. The people are friendly and always know what I'm going to order (Açai Especial Bowl). – alice c., Yelp, National Boulevard location
- I have to say I do drive all the way here just for a pomegranate smoothie. They are tart yet sweet, refreshing and a little creamy from the soy milk. Once I start, I keep slurping and drinking...mmmm good. – Alison B., Yelp, Hawthorne location
