Tropical Smoothie Cafe, the leading fast-casual cafe concept known for both its better-for-you food options and smoothies with a tropical twist, announced the release of its very limited-time smoothie, the Citrus Cactus Smoothie. This delicious, innovative smoothie blends together fresh cactus, orange, apple, mango, pineapple and freshly squeezed lime juice, and is available in participating Tropical Smoothie Cafe locations while supplies last.
“We wanted to offer guests a unique, adventurous smoothie and expose them to a cool ingredient they may never have tried before,” says Mike Rotondo, CEO of Tropical Smoothie Cafe. “Not only is the Citrus Cactus Smoothie a bold new menu item for us, but it tastes great.”
The fresh cactus used in the unrivaled smoothie is an ingredient found on only about two percent of all restaurant menus. The prickly plant is known for being an excellent source of antioxidants like vitamin A. Cactus is also a great source of potassium and magnesium, electrolytes important for maintaining hydration.
