The weather may not be warm and sunny, but that shouldn’t stop you from grabbing a smoothie or two.
Of course you can make variations of these tasty and nutritious drinks at home, but somehow the smoothie specialists always know how to do it better. The endless choices of flavours and super-food ingredients can kind of balance out those pieces of fried chicken you had yesterday, right?
Here are five places to find energizing smoothies around town.
