Smoothies contain all the nutrients of fruit without the labors of chewing and coaxing timid bananas out of their peels. Enjoy fruits sans labor with today’s Groupon: for $3, you get $6 worth of smoothies, juices, coffee drinks, and more at The Fruit Bar in Greensboro.
The Fruit Bar’s elixir wizards craft healthy fruit smoothies and gourmet coffee drinks from real fruit and fair-trade, organic coffee beans. The Fruity Affair smoothie nurtures parched palates with a blend of pineapple juice, peaches, bananas, and mango ($4–$5), whereas Sunsplash puckers tongues in a citrusy mélange of orange juice, banana, honey, and orange sherbet ($4.40–$5.25). Delicately spiced sips of a chai tea latte ($3.35–$4) go down easy amid the glow of warm custard walls and bright artwork, nearly conforming to the proverb, “Tea is best enjoyed while sitting in a tub of custard.” Meanwhile, effervescent refreshments such as an italian soda ($1.95–$2.45) can be paired with a selection of pastries or poured in the gas tank of a homesick Vespa.
