Butlers, forced by billionaires to mash piles of fruit by hand, invented blenders to prevent carpal tunnel and subsequent demotion to human towel rack. Reap the benefits of their creation with today's Groupon: for $5, today's side deal gets you $10 worth of smoothies and café fare at Tropical Smoothie Café at the Hoover location.
Tropical Smoothie Café's wholesome smoothies are filled to the gills with fresh fruit, juices, yogurt, chocolate, nuts, and healthful supplements, minimizing the crushing guilt of dessert consumption to a soft heartbeat emanating from the floorboards. Puréed potions such as Pomegranate Plunge (pomegranate, banana, strawberries, cranberry, $4.89) are stuffed with super fruit, and low-fat options, such as Mango Magic (mango, pineapples, non-fat yogurt, $4.49), trick gullible taste buds into believing that they are traversing a candy factory full of whipped-cream lollipops. Supercharged smoothies are stocked with a healthy dose of supplements, such as the Kiwi Citrus Green Tea's antioxidant-laden matcha charge or the Muscle Blaster's whey or soy protein ($4.89 each). Individual supplements can also be added to any other smoothie ($0.69 extra), boosting its magic points by +10.
Solid fare is available in the form of toasted wraps ($6.99), flatbread and 3D-bread sandwiches ($3.99, $6.99, respectively), and gourmet salads ($6.99). Hail a redundant monarchy with the King Caesar wrap (chicken, parmesan, tomatoes, romaine, and caesar dressing on a garlic-herb tortilla), clear the sinuses with a zippy Wasabi Roast Beef sandwich, or wake up and smell the bacon you've extracted from the All American wrap and inexplicably shoved up your nose (eggs, ham, and bacon, hugged by a white-flour tortilla, $3.99).
