I received gift cards from Smoothie King for free to provide an honest review.
Thinking of smoothies, you think of fruit; banana, strawberry, blueberry, etc. So when I seen there was a new store in the area I had to give them a shot.
Come to find out they’re not like everyone else’s smoothie. Oh no these smoothies are healthier than regular ones. Some have protein, some are made for weight loss, and some are dessert flavored.
My husband and I made a date out of it. Which was kind of nice to go by ourselves and not have to worry about plugging in cords into the car because of course technology is glued to their hands 24/7.
I tried the Slim Blends: Angel Food Smoothie which contains Strawberries, Bananas, Non-Fat Milk, Vanilla flavor with other natural flavors, Turbinado. I’m more plain and simple with it comes to my food and drink, so I went with the one that was simple.
Nothing hard to pronounce or made me guess what it was, except for the Turbinado (pure cane sugar), which I had to ask about it. But that was it.
I have to say this was a very good smoothie, I could taste the Strawberries and Bananas very well.
Some of the other Slim Blend smoothies contain Stevia-based sweetener, Electrolyte Mix, Lean™ Protein, and Diet Down Enhancer in their ingredients.
My husband tried the Fitness Blends: Peanut Power Plus Chocolate which contains Peanut Butter, Bananas, Non-Fat Milk, Turbinado, Cocoa, Protein Blend.
I can tell they took their time crafting the recipe for this smoothie. Everything was blended together nicely.
All the flavors were well-balanced. I could taste the chocolate, banana, and peanut butter equally. After a few minutes, I could feel an energy boost starting.
Some of the other Fitness Blend smoothies contain Stevia-Based Sweetener, Multi-Vitamin, and Whey Protein Blend in their ingredients.
Smoothie King also has kid smoothies which contain Multi-Vitamin Enhancer in their ingredients.
