“When you eat better, you feel better.” This is the guiding philosophy at Tropical Smoothie Cafe, which just debuted a new location in Wilmington last month. With low-calorie, vegetarian, and gluten-friendly options, as well as lots of superfood-infused treats, it’s easy to eat healthy at Tropical Smoothie Cafe.
If you want to go totally green with your smoothie, try the Detox Island Green. This smoothie skips the added sugar in favor of the natural sweetness that comes from mango, pineapple, and banana, all blended with spinach, kale, and a dash of fresh ginger. For something more substantial, opt for a healthy wrap or bowl like the Caribbean jerk bowl. It features a foundation of rice and black beans with romaine lettuce, cheddar cheese, grilled chicken, roasted pineapple salsa, and fiery jerk sauce on top. The cafe even dishes out light options for breakfast, like a toasted flatbread stuffed with peanut butter, banana, honey, and granola.
