What You'll Get
Don’t let those glacier-munching greenhouse gasses have all the fun—slurp up your own pure, frozen product of nature with today’s Groupon. For $3, you get any of the all-natural and all-delicious smoothies or spoons (a heartier version of the smoothie layered with granola) at Xoom NYC in the East Village (an up-to-$7.75 value). You also get one free upgrade (an up-to-$1 value), which can be either replacing the yogurt with soy yogurt or adding a "xeedling" of almonds, oat bran, wheat germ, flax, coconut, hemp granola, or crystalized ginger.
Xoom’s smoothies come in more than 30 flavors plus seasonal specials, such as eggnog, that are almost as much fun to say as to drink. Try one of the “Berry Therapy” smoothies, such as Paint It Blackberry (with guava juice, mangos, and blackberries), or a “Protein Power” option like Screamcycle (with soy milk, fresh orange juice, mangos, and peaches). If you want your vitamins but don't feel like using a straw, try one of Xoom's three flavors of spoons, a thicker, granola-layered Acai smoothie that you can scoop into your mouth. If you're worried that Junior isn't getting enough acai from his breakfast of Crunchberries in chocolate milk, a children’s menu is available.
Like a great jazz performance or big n' tall lingerie, what makes Xoom’s smoothies great is what’s not there—specifically, all those artificial preservatives and other chemicals that are mummifying our bodies for future alien archeologists to uncover. Dissect a Xoom smoothie and you’ll find no high-fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors. Xoom’s brain-freeze delivery vehicles also lack traditional snowy fatteners like ice cream, sherbert, sorbet, or fish sticks. Xoom strips each smoothie down to its organic essence: pure fruit, 100% fruit juice (with no added sugar), soy- or cow-juice, and some non-fat yogurt (frozen, fresh, or of non-cattle extraction). Xoom’s smoothicians also goose their creations’ natural healthfulness with a “xoomer” nutrient boost. Like Wolverine’s X-gene, this X-factor gives you an all-natural health advantage, reinforcing your super-immune system and whatever Adamantium-laced cutlery you harbor on your person.
Because consuming 11 of Xoom's ultra-healthy smoothies run the risk of rendering you immortal, everyone is limited to 10 of today's Groupon. You can, however, buy extras for friends—treating them to a taste of nature that's just a short, icy hike from the subway.
- I enjoy smoothies and it’s very exciting to welcome XOOM in the neighborhood to satisfy my fruity cravings!!…There are so many different smoothies to choose from. The menu is filled with goodies with creative names like the Floo Figther [sic]. – Renee C., Yelp
