Vancouver's first smoothie machine has landed, dispensing a range of fruit smoothies to start, with plant-based protein, vegetable and superfood blends in the works.
Located at Parker Street Studios, the bright-pink box is, for all intents and purposes, a robot that makes to-order drinks in less than a minute. And no, they're not pre-mixed; the smoothies are blended with water, ice and a touch of Stevia and are pasteurized for safe consumption. Choose from Mango Tango, Passion Peach, Pineapple Glory, Cool Banana or Tropical Berry ($6 for 16 ounces)—each flavour contains two to three servings of fruit and a maximum of 200 calories.
The packaging is compostable and recyclable, the contraption itself uses sustainable energy and, eventually, customers should be able to use their own cups. Green machine! —Vita Daily
