Go the smooth route with today's Groupon: for $12, you get four smoothies and four energy teas with aloe shots at Skinny's Nutrition Studio in Flowood and Ridgeland (a $24 value).
Trey and Mamie Herron of Skinny's Nutrition Studio—which was given a shout-out by Well-Being magazine—foster healthy weight loss and whole-body wellness with customized calorie consumption and protein-based meals. Skinny's beverages await health-seekers sauntering into the teal and green eatery, where knowledgeable staffers blend over 41 flavors of creamy smoothies, from coconut almond and banana split to strawberry lemonade. Whether looking for a meal replacement or a healthy snack, patrons can wet whistles with a glass of energy tea infused with lemon, peach, and raspberry flavors, followed by a quick shot of aloe, which slides into the stomach to aid in digestion and reduce acid reflux caused by eating spicy foods or swallowing pineapples whole.
