Along with these hearty bowls, Tropical Smoothie Café is serving refreshing smoothies that feature an unexpected flavor boost—nature’s all natural sweetener, roasted banana. Back by popular demand, the UnBEETable Berry is a frosty assortment of strawberries, beets, blueberries, cranberry, as well as the roasted banana.
