Bowl of Greens vs. Mojo Bowl: Smoothie Smackdown
The Smoothie: It's a simple and satisfying combination. Fruit, juice, maybe some yogurt, a scoop of protein powder -- blend and drink. Easy to make, but hard to perfect.
Hayden Harrison The "Big O" smoothie at Bowl of Greens is $4.95.
Instead of slaving over a loud blender trying to balance the flavors just right, sometimes we want to leave the dirty work to somebody else. So, we set out to find the holy grail of strawberry and banana smoothies in Phoenix.
In This Corner: Bowl of Greens
The Setup: Stationed on the first floor of the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication on Arizona State University's downtown campus, Bowl of Greens serves a variety of healthy food and drink choices. Since it is right on campus, it can be found swarmed with students.
The Good: We ordered the "Big O," which consists of strawberries, bananas, and orange juice. It was simple, with strong, sweet flavors. With a consistent blend so thick it practically wouldn't come through the straw, we couldn't complain.
The Bad: Really, we couldn't complain.
