I love me a good smoothie. A lot.
While we were in Florida we discovered a smoothie shop called Tropical Smoothie Cafe.
I mean Jamba Juice is good, but there isn't really a comparison to TSC.
My favorite flavor is called Bahama Mama.
First off--AWESOME NAME.
It has strawberries, pineapple, white chocolate, and coconut. Oh. My. Heavens. It is divine.
Oh. And then there's the Cranberry Truffle. It's not on their normal menu, but you can pretty much get it year round. I believe it has cranberries, strawberries, and white chocolate. Probably some other stuff, too. I like to throw in some coconut every now and again. It is also sent straight from heaven.
What does this have to do with Christmas, you may be asking yourself?
There is a Tropical Smoothie Cafe in Portland!
I googled "smoothie vancouver, wa" to see what kind of options I was going to have when we got there and the TSC website was the first on the list! There aren't any other locations nearby--just the one in Portland--only 10 miles away from our apartment!!! It is an east coast chain, so I was shocked and giddy to find out I no longer have to mourn the loss of TSC.
Merry Christmas to ME!
