For this week's Tasty Tuesday, I stopped by Smoothie King, located beneath Stanhope Apartments. Since I am a self-proclaimed smoothie fanatic, I have high expectations for my blended beverages - and Smoothie King did not disappoint! Their menu has an endless amount of customizable options, which are separated out based on their health benefits, such as fitness blends, wellness blends, slim blends, take-a-break blends and kids blends.
The abundant number of options makes you want to come back and try every one, all of which contain no artificial colors, preservatives or flavors! Also, they offer "nutritional enhancers," such as extra whey or vegan protein, that can be added to any smoothie. Smoothie King offers sizes small, medium and large in a convenient to-go cup.
I stopped by Smoothie King for lunch. After looking over the menu, I ordered a medium pure recharge strawberry smoothie from their wellness blends. This tasty smoothie had strawberries, pure recharge enhancers, a nutrient blend and electrolyte mix. Although there is indoor seating, I decided to take my smoothie on-the-go to enjoy the beautiful weather. It gave me just the right amount of energy I needed to finish my day.
Whether you're coming from a work-out, need an extra wellness boost or simply want to relax, stop by Smoothie King for a delicious drink. They are located at 3001 Hillsborough St. Suite 112 and are open Monday through Friday 7:00 am to 9:00 pm, Saturday 8:00 am - 9:00 pm, and Sunday 10:00 am - 8:00 pm. You won't be disappointed!
