During a failed attempt to discover gravity, Sir Isaac Newton fell face first into a snow bank while carrying a heap of delicious fruit—inadvertently discovering the health benefits of mixing squashed, nutritious food with sub-Arctic cold. Today’s Groupon lets you replicate Newton's experiment under controlled conditions: for $4, you get two vitamin-packed, 20 oz. smoothies at Smoothie King (up to a $10 value after tax, depending on the smoothies). This Groupon is good at Smoothie King's North Union Boulevard location.
Outside of swimming laps in chocolate syrup, smoothies at Smoothie King are the tastiest way to improve your health. Smoothie King smoothies combine fresh fruit, natural juices, and special nutritional enhancers into more than 90 flavors (you can customize, add, and subtract the extras), all of which focus on achieving one of seven nutritional goals. Try an antioxidant-rich Pomegranate Punch with pomegranate, bananas, blueberries, apple juice, soy protein, and turbinado sweetener to stay healthy. Weight-conscious en-smuthiasts can trim down and float away with the Celestial Cherry High, packed with bananas, black cherry, papaya, turbinado, and honey, and unpacked with fat. You can also customize any smoothie by adding enhancers or “make it skinny” by cutting out the honey and turbinado.
All that choice stems from Smoothie King founders Steve and Cindy Kuhnau and their decades of experience. Seeking a delicious way to alleviate his allergies and low blood sugar in the late 1960s, the male Kuhnau tried blending fruit, nutrients, and proteins at home, creating the smoothie. In 1973, he opened his first health store with the first official smoothie of Smoothie King. Smoothie King remains committed to tasty health solutions, complementing its smoothie selection with snacks and supplements along with advice for good health.
Although this Smoothie King location is still too new to have many reviews, Metromix Phoenix recommends the Smoothie King franchise. Reviewers across the nation give Smoothie King three- to four-star average ratings on Yelp and TripAdvisor:
Steve Kuhnau grew up battling allergies and low blood sugar, and in the late 60's, he finally found the perfect solution, and it was delicious. Blending real fruit, proteins, nutrients, and other mix-ins, Steve created Smoothie King to provide nutritious drinks, many of which can be as filling and healthful as a meal. Fiber, probiotics, antioxidants, and other enhancements can boost the health effects of customers, plus skipping added sweeteners can help avoid calories, carbs, and conniving tooth fairies who have a malicious contract with all sugars.
