What I didn’t really appreciate is that all smoothies contain two scoops of sorbet (strawberry and lemon). Whereas the sorbet indeed does not include dairy, it does include sugar. Most smoothies also include fruit juice (apple, tropical, mango or watermelon). I understand that it has to include some sort of liquid, whether it’s milk, yogurt, juice or other but the fact that it includes two scoops of ice cream plus a non-fresh juice bothered me. Furthermore, it didn’ti have any cool vegetable or fruit juices and smoothies like celery, ginger or carrot and there were no options which included beetroot or ginger (having said that there is a make-your-own option).
To be fair there was a nutritional board with calories, fat, carbs, sodium and dietary fibre setting out the nutritional value for each drink and although they seemed low (e.g. 38 calories for a strawberry bang) they were stated for 100ml of drink, whereas the smallest size smoothie on offer is 450ml (i.e 171 calories).
In a nutshell it didn’t fulfill my need for a fantastic smoothie bar. I liked my All Berry Bang in terms of flavour but I didn’t feel that I was having something nutritious since it had more apple juice and sorbet (both containing sugar), than fruit (and not to mention that it cost 4.60€). I would return simply to have a mixed, fresh fruit juice.
