The Vancouver Smoothie Scene: 5 of Our Favourite Spots

Key Lime Festal

We're in the middle of a scorching hot Vancouver summer, and on days like today, there's no better way to refresh than a smoothie. They're cold, delicious, nutritious - everything you could hope for in a summer snack.

Now, as the creators of Vancouver's first ready-to-blend smoothie, we love blending one at home up first thing in the morning. But we know when you're out and about, you don't always have a blender handy. So we're going beyond the kitchen to feature our 6 favourite places for a fresh blend. We even visited each one again, had a quick smoothie, and documented some of the important details about each one: 

Where to get great smoothies in Vancouver:
