What You'll Get
|_Jump to: Reviews||Famous Hoaxes and The Disappointing Truth_|
Fans of antique roadshows and smoothies can take their tongues to joyheaven with today’s Groupon: $10 worth of smoothies and blended bowls from Rush – Naturally Enlightened for $5, good for both Boulder locations. Though you can only use one per person per visit, you’re free to buy enough energy boosts to simultaneously keep up with your jogging and novel-writing goals.
Rush’s smoothies($5.69) and blended bowls($6.88) eschew sugary juice cocktails, high-fat sherbets, and processed fruits in favor of 100% juice, all-natural fruit, vegan and gluten-free options, and a variety of other organic and unadulterated foods, including the game-changing Amazonian superberry acai. Containing three times the antioxidants of blueberries and 10–30 times that of red wine, acai also improves digestion, boosts your cardiovascular system, and reminds you of your successes when you can’t stop remembering your failed boat business.
Dip into the legend bowl (apple juice, acai, bananas, organic hemp granola, honey) or the Amazon acai dali (vanilla soy or full-fat milk, acai, mango, blueberry, peach). Or, aside from acai, you’ll find plenty of other equally nutrilicious fruit mash-ups, such as the yoga bowl and Hannah’s chocolate-covered strawberry bowl, and literary-fortified smoothies such as Poe’s hangover cure (fresh OJ, apple juice, banana, prickly pear, oat bran, frozen yogurt, hangover vitamins) and the Sun Also Rises (fresh-squeezed OJ, strawberries, bananas, frozen yogurt).
Though they taste like sinful indulgences, Rush bowls and smoothies pack more than two servings worth of fruit. Instead of feeling guilty, you’ll leave Rush feeling energized for work, the gym, or perilous car chases.
Rush has gotten some excellent press from both national media and local media such as the Boulder Report. Its bowls have even made a fan out of former supermodel and the world’s foremost authority on Tyra Banks, Tyra Banks. She enthusiastically dug into one on a recent show:
Citysearchers give Rush five stars, and Yelpers give it four: > * Rush is a great find. They use only 100% fruit juice and no high fructose corn syrup. That is so hard to find. – tgirl_223, Citysearch > * The best smoothie in Boulder - organic - and actually good for you. I go for a smoothie at least once a week. – AliciaAlo, Citysearch
Famous Hoaxes and The Disappointing Truth
Rush offers plenty of healthy treats infused with acai, the “superberry” with amazing nutritional and antioxidant powers. Don’t be fooled—unlike some famous hoaxes, acai is the real thing. Here are some famous hoaxes and the disappointing truth behind them:
The Hoax: The Cardiff Giant, a 10-foot-tall petrified man found buried in the ground
The Disappointing Truth: It was actually just a carved stone that caused all who touched it to see gruesome visions of playoff baseball.
The Hoax: Crop circles, supposed evidence of alien visitation
The Disappointing Truth: The circles were created by two Englishmen dressed like two Irishmen.
The Hoax: The Turk, a supposed automaton that could play chess
The Disappointing Truth: The chess was actually played by a midget underneath the chessboard. Although the mechanical Turk could move the pieces and feel the human emotion of anger, it could not play chess.
