2 days ago I went to my favorite place in Virginia-Norfolk, and decided to go to a smoothie bar (Smoothie Mania) I had been wanting to go to forever. I think I should just start with saying that this was the best smoothie I’ve ever had. The best part? It was probably also the healthiest. The best way to describe it? Happiness in a cup.
Smoothie Mania has the usual flavors for sale (strawberry banana and such), but they also had about 30 (or more) unique flavors, all with vitamins and/or greens added to it. I had the plum green berry cheesecake smoothie which contained plum, raspberry, roasted oat, blueberry, spinach, kale, and gluten-free cheesecake. Believe it or not, it actually tasted like cheesecake!
In addition to the health benefits, the smoothie contained tons of actual fruit pieces throughout and on top, including a whole prune. To top it off, they gave me whipped cream (for free).
Ready for the grand finale? They give you a free chocolate with your smoothie! I’m not talking about cheap chocolate, but the fancy Ferrero-Rocher. It did cost more than your typical smoothie (it was $10), but it tasted way better and it will certainly leave you full. The people that work there are very happy and friendly, and usually have samples out for people to try.
