THE ORIGIN OF SMOOTHIES

Fruits, milk, ice-cream and cookies, blitzed away in a blender, packed with nutrients and choicest flavours – why would anybody doubt the prowess of a beverage such as this? 

You know, smoothie wasn’t a term you could throw about back in the day as young Steven Kuhnau discovered. Nevertheless, he thanked the ‘hippies’ and members of ‘Flower Power’ for introducing him to their range of ‘adulterated’ vegetable and fruit drinks that they referred to as a ‘smoothie’. As a teenager, Steven was lactose intolerant. He created a special blend of frozen fruits, fruit juices including ice and nutrients to help him cope at a time when milkshake was all the rage. Steven’s smoothies weren’t just tasty, but also nutritious and helped control his blood-sugar levels. In all that excitement, he opened his first health-food store called ‘The Smoothie King’, and there was no turning back. Steven went on to open over 600 smoothie stores across the US! 

For a quick dose of indulgence, and especially since the summer is around the corner, a tall glass of smoothie is the easiest choice. We’ve introduced a range of refreshing smoothies on our menu that you will totally dig!
