Fans of antique roadshows and smoothies can take their tongues to joyheaven with today's Groupon: $14 worth of smoothies, blended bowls and more from Rush–Naturally Enlightened for $7, 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 menu 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 fat-free 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 the chocolate-covered strawberry bowl, and literary-fortified smoothies such as Poe's hangover cure (OJ, apple juice, banana, prickly pear, oat bran, frozen yogurt, hangover vitamins) and Hemingway's grapefruit (pineapple, strawberries, grapefruit juice, frozen yogurt).
Though they taste like sinful indulgences, Rush bowls ($6.25+tax), smoothies ($5.25+tax), and acai smoothies ($5.60+tax) 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.
