I’ve never been a big smoothie drinker, but after trying the Naked Juice smoothies.. I’ve started to experiment with smoothie drinks.
Today my boyfriend suggested we go to Smoothie King right after we went grocery shopping and I was super excited to try it.
My boyfriend absolutely loves Smoothie King and he figured that if I tried it, I’d like it contrary to me not being a fan of dairy drinks.
He ended up telling me that Smoothie King had almond milk, coconut water, and other types of bases that could be used in the smoothie. I didn’t HAVE to go with the dairy option which I loved.
So today I figured I would share with you guys my experience of Smoothie King and whether it is worth the try.
I tried a smoothie from Smoothie King | Review
Smoothie King is a restaurant that pretty much sells smoothies.
When we drove up to the drive thru, I’m not going to lie… I felt pretty overwhelmed because there were so many things on their menu.
I scanned the menu and nothing stood out too much until I saw the words “Pineapple Surf.”
Now you guys probably don’t know, but I’m a huge fan of pineapple. I love eating pineapple as a snack and drinking pineapple juice so I figured the Pineapple Surf smoothie from Smoothie King would be the way to go.
In the Pineapple Surf smoothie it has Pineapples, a Kiwi Apple Juice Blend, Turbinado (whatever that is), and some sort of Dairy Whey Blend in it.
I’m normally anti-milk when it comes to drinks, but I tried it just to see if it was worth it. Plus I didn’t want to be difficult at the drive-thru menu since it was my first time trying Smoothie King.
I also got it in a size small which was just enough for me if I didn’t like it.
The Taste of the Smoothie from Smoothie King
The Pineapple Surf smoothie is so freaking good. It tastes like a good mixture of fruit. I normally am not a fan of dairy drinks, but I absolutely love the way this tastes.
The drink does taste mostly like pineapple and apple to me. There are subtle hints of kiwi in it too. I didn’t expect to drink the whole thing initially, but I just couldn’t control myself. Pineapple Surf is THAT good!
Next time, I’ll definitely get it in a large size.
I also love that the smoothie is not super thick. It’s the right consistency where it doesn’t feel overwhelming to drink.
Do I recommend Smoothie King?
Coming from a person who doesn’t drink dairy drinks, yes! I highly recommend Smoothie King. Smoothie King creates some delicious drinks that are worth a try.
The drive-thru experience is decently timed. It probably took 4 minutes for us to order and receive our drinks since they are made fresh.
Smoothie King is definitely one of my favorite finds of the Summer.
I know for sure that if Smoothie King sold this drink in stores, I’d definitely buy it.
I’m looking forward to trying out more of their smoothies in the near future.
I know when I mentioned Smoothie King and how much I love it on my Twitter, someone recommended that I try the Strawberry Kiwi Breeze smoothie. So that’s next for me whenever we visit Smoothie King again.
I hope you guys enjoyed this Smoothie King review.

Oh yum, I think we have a Smoothie King nearby. I will have to visit one day.
I love pineapple so I would love that one too! Great review!
I love smoothies, too! This looks refreshing! I have to try this.
That sounds great, I still drink smoothies sometimes even if it’s rainy here in the Philippines already hehe
Yeah, I have not been to a Smoothie King in awhile but it is a nice treat! Should take the kids their soon.
We go to Smoothie King quite a bit in my household. Mainly because my daughter likes their banana boat smoothie. We have to buy one after she goes to the orthodontist or any other appt that may be uncomfortable! LOL I am glad you liked it!
There is a smoothie king near my house, I was very excited to try them out. I think we ended up going three times and decided it’s not for us. But I do love smoothies and really enjoy whipping them up at home.
So being from New Orleans, we know all about Smoothie King since it was founded and is based here. It has been an iconic staple for everyone here who whether they are super into fitness or like you barely drink smoothies, are everywhere.
SO for me, I love their flavors too. In particular, I love their Pineapple Kiwi flavors as they are really tart and fun to drink on a hot day. My only caveat that I tell EVERYONE, is to be very careful as they are not always 100% the healthiest option. The medium & larger sizes are often loaded up with turbinado or other sugars that preserve their fruits. Now they are better than the millions of other fast food options but always pay attention to those carbs & sugars when you drink them if that is an issue for you.
I haven’t tried these. I do love smoothies!!! I must try them.
It looks good, sometimes it takes a while until we love something hahaha. It happened to me as well.
I’ve always wanted to regularly consume smoothies. Unfortunately, it’s not so popular here in my country although we do have fruit shake kiosks here.
Smoothie is always my go to drink! It refreshes me and my mood
Look so yummy and refreshing, a great drink to deal with the heat in summer. Thanks for sharing your reviews! – Knycx Journeying
I like smoothie: it’s so delicious and pretty easy to get. I wish me had more places for it
I haven’t heard about this brand, looks interesting though..
I love a good smoothie !! My favorite is banana and strawberry oh so good.
Is this a new place because I have never heard of it before. It sounds like an amazing place. Smoothies are so good!
Nice review here! Our family is into so much of these fruit smoothies so we can relate unless they use some secret ingredients to make it yummier?
I love Smoothie King too 🙂 Strawberry will always be my favorite
