Stopped into Palm Beach Smoothies yesterday morning in Boynton for a pick-me-up. I’m trying to watch what I eat lately and, aside from the occasional hot dog, I have been successful. I used to go to this PBS before work when I was at the Duffy’s on Hypoluxo. PBS is a little different than say, Jamba Juice or Smoothie King in that they attempt to position themselves as a “healthy lifestyle” store geared to the post workout or yoga set. I feel that Smoothie King especially, is more of a “dessert” smoothie.
Anyway, I arrived at around 10am on a Sunday morning and the poor guys working there looked like they wanted to be anywhere else. The plaza where PBS is located was like a ghost town. I had to cross what felt like 10 miles of empty parking lot to reach the store from the FedEx, which was my original destination. Seems to me that PBS could save some $$ by closing on Sunday, especially in the summer. I’m pretty sure I was the only customer they had all morning.
Every other (occupied) storefront around them was closed. I asked the guy what to order that was healthy, and he told me I should get a juice, so I did. He recommended a juice with orange, kale, cilantro, lime, and some other stuff. They blend the juices to order. It was good! But soooo expensive. Like $7.50 for a 16oz cup of juice. If you bought these ingredients and blended them at home you could make about 25 portions for $7.50. If you want healthy, you are going to pay for it! Sorry I sound like your Grandpa, but it is a consideration. But the juice was great! And, I felt good about my choice. Give it a shot-
