Well, V informs me Tuesday morning as I am trying to usher him out the door, he needs to have a healthy breakfast for testing that day. He normally eats breakfast as school. I suggested we hit the drive thru at McD's and he said, "Momma that isn't healthy, take me to Marianos for a smoothie". So I suggested running over to Jamba Juice for a smoothie, as it is much closer and we were already running late. We got to Jamba Juice at 6:56 to find out they open at 7.
So we waited the 4 minutes while the worker inside literally stared at us waiting outside. (Super awkward) and debated on our selections. I don't remember the actual names of what we ordered, but V got a mango one and I got a kale/peach/banana one. I watched them mix them up, they added scoops of stuff and ice, and 'juice'. They were absolutely awful. There were many chunks in mine, and it wasn't well mixed at all.
When we get them at Marianos, they are scooping in real ingredients (that are frozen, or fresh and I believe organic), handfuls of greens...fresh greens. NO ICE! Completely well mixed and about 30% less of a price tag.
We LOVE Marianos. WE LOVE Marianos' smoothies, we haven't been compensated in any way or form, all of our smoothies have been purchased. However if you have a giftcard laying around you won't use, we would be happy to use it for our smoothie addiction.:)
Tell me your favorite place to get a healthy smoothie.
Do you ever go to Jamba Juice?
