Like assets and evil snowmen, fruits are easier to deal with in liquid form. Wash down nature's nectar with today's Groupon: for $10, you get five 20-ounce smoothies at Smoothie King in Marietta (a $24.95 value).
The blender jockeys behind the Smoothie King counter whip vitamin-packed fruit, protein powders, and herbal nutrients into a menu of frozen concoctions that can help boost energy and burn fat, among other functions. Stocked with bananas, papayas, and strawberries, an electrolyte-packed Super Punch smoothie can replenish nutrients lost while bench-pressing Carmen Miranda’s 200-pound fruit hat, and a low-carb chocolate smoothie aids diet efforts by sating cocoa cravings without excess sugar. Alternately, electrify sweet teeth by sipping a Peanut Power smoothie, a creamy blend of freshly ground peanut butter and bananas that can be plugged into a wall socket to recharge its flavors. Though not included in today’s Groupon, customers can also choose to add enhancers to boost the vitamin, protein, or fiber content of any smoothie for an additional fee.
