They also have a Cali Shake with the pumpkin seed milk, coconut water, Stumptown coffee cold brew, frozen avocado, coconut butter, cacao, tocos, lucuma, cordyceps and maca.

Same as Smoothie King. You know where your Jamba Juice is.
Jamba Juice recently changed their name to just Jamba. Who knew? Anyway, the national chain is giving away free small smoothies from 2 pm to 5 pm on Friday, June 21. Choices are between a Watermelon Breeze, Vanilla Blue Sky, or White Gummi smoothie.
Red Mango, which seems to have closed most of its Dallas locations, is open in Richardson at CityLine. Or the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport. Or Frisco, if you’re way up there.
They’re offering 50 percent off any smoothie on Friday. At participating locations only.
