Drink The Blue Monkey

Local smoothie maker Fresco eyes the big leagues

And a little too forthright. I've gotten used to my bottled smoothies containing a little more junk science than that. (You'll be happy to know that the beverage press calls these "new age beverages." I love the smell of Shirley MacLaine in the morning.) I mean, with Fantasia's Planet Green bottled smoothie, I get way, way more obfuscation at no added cost. There's "open cell chlorella" and "Klamath blue green algae" in there! I assure you, if I had any idea what those were, I would be even more impressed than I already am.

Without junk science, what do the Fresco smoothies have in them but a lot of fruit? Each Fresco smoothie is 100 percent fruit, which the Xanthos family is totally fired up about. I don't know why. To someone with a pillow on her head reporting on apple-cheeked juice-bar devotees, it seems a perplexing fashion.
