Planet Smoothie is a franchise which values delivering delicious products, such as smoothies, protein shakes and fruit bowls, to its customers. These are offered in a wide variety of options to fit the unique needs that your taste and lifestyle demand. Recently, Planet Smoothie opened a brand new location in Coral Springs.

Planet Smoothie has a very diverse menu, offering protein and energy smoothies of all kinds. There are flexible options to include add-ins and protein combos into your order. Each smoothie is customizable to the customer’s liking.

After hearing positive feedback about Planet Smoothie, I decided to try out four different smoothies. An employee recommended several drinks known to be popular fan favorites.

The first smoothie I tried was “The PBJ Blast.” The PBJ includes peanut butter, strawberries, bananas, frozen yogurt and nonfat milk. This drink absolutely lives up to its name and tastes strongly of peanut butter, with hints of banana. This smoothie is incredibly thick, almost like a milkshake. I enjoyed the peanut butter aspect of this drink, but I was not a fan of the hints of banana, making this my least favorite order. I would only recommend this to die-hard fans of peanut butter and bananas.

Lunar Lemonade, the second drink I tried, was another favorite among customers. This drink is a lighter smoothie which consists of three ingredients: strawberries, lemonade and bananas. The Lunar Lemonade has no distinct lemonade taste, and instead tastes similar to Laffy Taffy candy. The lemonade within the smoothie, however, does provide a nice tart taste, making this drink very enjoyable. This smoothie is definitely a go-to for classic strawberry-banana lovers.

The third smoothie I tasted was the Strawberry Colada. The smoothie consists of pineapple, coconut, strawberries and milk. Coladas are typically known for their replenishing taste of coconut and pineapple and this one succeeded expectations. This mix of flavors leaves such a light, yet fresh and enjoyable taste on your tongue. The coconut flavor in the Strawberry Colada is very prominent and refreshing. The pineapple also provides a unique minimal tart flavor. I absolutely loved this one, and can confidently say that it was my favorite smoothie that I tried.

The final drink I tried was the Rio Berry Bliss. This smoothie includes coconut water, strawberries, raspberries and pineapple. It also includes several other berries, including açai, a tart fruit similar to raspberries, harvested from açai palm trees. I enjoyed the Rio Berry Bliss much more than I expected, especially since I am not a big fruit person. This is a berry packed drink, which is the perfect mix of tart and sweet. This smoothie is perfect for those who enjoy the typical berry flavor in a smoothie.

Out of all the drinks I tried, I can definitely say each was unique to their own. Planet Smoothie has a drink for everyone, especially with their wide variety of fruits and add-ins offered on the menu.

I really enjoyed how flexible the menu was, allowing you to customize each drink to specify your individual taste. The amount of options on the menu can be slightly overwhelming, but it is very easy to find something you can enjoy.

I truly am looking forward to future visits to Planet Smoothie, as I was genuinely surprised at how much I enjoyed these smoothies. I definitely recommend Planet Smoothie for fruit lovers that are looking for a unique, diverse menu.
