A couple of my blogger friends have shared pictures about their ongoing experiences with Tropical Smoothie Cafe and I was thrilled to find out that we have a few locations within 20 minutes of me. WHAT!! I never knew that, and that’s my own fault, but I can’t wait to check them out. I mean, after all, look….When I started doing my research, I didn’t know that they were MORE than just smoothies. My husband told me about sandwiches, flatbreads and wraps they offered as well. YUMMO upon reading their menu!
Tropical Smoothie Cafe is currently offering four “extra” smoothies that each cover a range of nutritional benefits – whether that’s adding super foods to your diet, increasing protein intake or going through a detox – these recipes will help you stay on track with your New Year’s resolutions.

My family absolutely loves making smoothies. My girls would each them every day, to be honest with you! And think of the control you have of the food you are investing when you make it yourself. You can control the calories, the fat, the go’s…and on and on. Great benefits if you ask me! And an easy way to stay on track with your health and fitness goals too.
