Are you like me? I love smoothies but hate making them! Even though they really aren't hard to make, sometimes, especially in the morning, I'm just too lazy.
Robeks contacted me and asked if I was interested in trying out their new smoothie collections and I knew it was the perfect excuse to revisit their stores and check them out.
It had been a couple of years since I had been to a Robeks so I was looking forward to seeing what they had to offer. When I worked in Warrensville Heights, I would stop by frequently to get my smoothie fix. Since I moved, they were out of sight, out of mind.
The regular menu really does have something for everyone: smoothies, freshly squeezed juices, bowls, coffee smoothies and energy shots. I tried their Spa Inspired Creations at the tail end of that summer promo and was really impressed. The raw honey and cucumber collection featured Spa-berry Lemonade™, Tropical Zing™ and Refreshingly Green™. They were beautiful and delicious BUT frozen yogurt was in all three. Without that, they would have been lower in calories and probably just as tasty. When I have a smoothie I only want fruit, veggies, and other whole ingredients in them.
The current promo Melon & Mint is a nod to summer so get some while you can.
Fresh Cantaloupe & Fresh Mint with Pineapple Chunks, 100% Natural Orange & Pineapple Sherbet, & Apple Juice
Fresh, Chopped Mint with Raw Watermelon,Raw Cantaloupe & Raw Cucumber
Fresh Watermelon & Fresh Mint with Ripe Strawberries, Pineapple Chunks, 100% Natural Raspberry & Pineapple Sherbet & Apple Juice
Like the last batch, I was very disappointed to see sherbet as an ingredient is two of the three. I never want that in my smoothie - it kind of defeats the whole "healthy" purpose of drinking one. That being said, they were delicious.
I really enjoyed my visits to Robeks. They offer a lot of great choices. Just be sure to read the ingredients to see what you're getting. They are able to customize your beverages so just ask if you want to make changes. I found them to be really accommodating and willing to make your experience great.
