Robeks Giveaway

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.

I absolutely LOVE watermelon and cantaloupe so I was excited to see that those are the two flavors being featured. For a limited time, you can get these three seasonal combinations:

Cantaloupe Cooler
Fresh Cantaloupe & Fresh Mint with Pineapple Chunks, 100% Natural Orange & Pineapple Sherbet, &  Apple Juice
Mojito Melon
Fresh, Chopped Mint with Raw Watermelon,Raw Cantaloupe & Raw Cucumber
Wailea Watermelon
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. You can also add a nutrition boost for only 25 cents.
My personal favorites are the fresh squeezed juices - nothing but fruits and veggies are in these. I also love the shots. They have wheat grass, lemon/ginger and acai/lemon. Every time I go, the wheat grass is a must - it's packed with nutrition and virtually calorie free.
For a special treat, try the coffee smoothies. These are crazy good but full of calories so stick to the iced mocha or the small size.

  3. So I was kind of disappointed by the sherbet and various juices being an ingredient in most of the classic smoothies. They do look tasty and the calories aren't terrible, but I think the juices look the most appetizing. I would try either the crazy carrot (reminds me of a virgin bloody mary) or the ABC. I would definitely add wheat grass to mine. If only I could find where they sell wheat grass to grow at home! It is such a powerhouse of vitamins and nutrients!
