the hunt for green smoothie

I haven’t watched that movie, the Hunt for Red October, but I have been on the hunt for a green smoothie. Partly inspired by that movie about juicing, Fat Sick and Nearly Dead. Even if I didn’t go on a reboot juicing fast for 10 days or 2 weeks, drinking a green smoothie instead of a meal could be a healthy move.

There are 3 franchises in my area (Aliso Viejo, California, aka South Orange County) — Juice It Up vs. Smoothie King vs. Jamba Juice — but only 1 of the 3 have green smoothies, that is, Jamba Juice. There are many other smoothie franchises out there elsewhere, according to, but if they’re not near where I live, it can’t be a part of my lifestyle, which is the whole point of drinking of green smoothies, because I’m sure not doing it for taste.

My main impression on each of these 3 smoothie places: Juice It Up is good for sweet & tasty juicy smoothies. Smoothie King comes across more like a protein-shake nutrition choose-your-favorite-powder add-on kind of drinks place, and then Jamba Juice is the trendy healthy drinks with strong branding & marketing.

What’s your impressions, and where do you go for green smoothies near where you live?
