1/31 Meet Me Monday- I'm a Picky Smoothie Lover
I love smoothies. Ok, that didn't have enough emphasis. I LOVE smoothies!
But I'm picky about it. There are very few smoothies I've found that I truly love.
My favorite... Smoothie King's Muscle Punch. Here's the website's description:
"Be good to your body and it will be good to you, right? Well, what happens when you’re great to your body? Give it this creamy combo of banana, strawberries and our unique nutrient blend, and you’ll find out."
It is seriously the BEST smoothie I've ever had. It all started my freshman year of college. It was orientation week. A few girls I was with mentioned a great smoothie place. I knew I liked strawberries and bananas and so one mentioned I try the Angel Food smoothie. I did and really liked it. So that's what I had for a while.
Until someone introduced me to Muscle Punch. It just had the extra something. I was hooked. There was only a Smoothie King in the college city though. 2 hours from home. So I could only get it while at school. Sad, I know. Especially when I moved back home to go to school.
Well then about a year later, news got around that a Smoothie King had opened in the town across the river. Can you hear the hallelujah chorus yet? Only problem is, I don't go out that way often. But I do stop by every chance I get.
Even greater news? They're opening one in my town. 10 minutes from my house. Right next to Walmart. We all know I go there a lot. I can't wait! My brother even got me a gift card for Christmas. It's so exciting. I wish it would open now. I'm so impatient :)
Anyways, there's very few other smoothies that I even like. Sonic has a decent Strawberry Banana smoothie. When they make it right, that is. But that's about it. I can't even make it how I like it at home.
Aww man... there I've gone and done it. Now I'm craving a smoothie :)
So do you have a favorite smoothie flavor? A favorite place you like to go?
