Did you know that June 21 is National Smoothie Day? It’s a great way to kick off the start of summer! To celebrate, take a break from the heat to cool off with a refreshing smoothie of your choice. Here are four Long Beach, California smoothie businesses that reviewers rave about and you should support. As a plus, each is just down the street or around the corner from us at The Circle Apartments!

Natural Cultures

265 E. 3rd Street, Long Beach, CA 90802

The cute, modern shop atmosphere is enough to bring people in; but the food is definitely raved about too. Focusing on natural, healthy ingredients, their smoothies are 100 percent vegan with no added sugar and praised for their great texture that is never icy or watery. One favorite flavor to try is banana nut butter smoothie. It sounds like a great starting point in celebrating National Smoothie Day this year!

Salud Juice Bar

1944 E. 4th Street, Suite 5, Long Beach, CA 90802

Salud Juice Bar is another local smoothie shop that reviewers love. The green smoothie is praised, but judging from their menu of 100 percent organic (except honey, which is local) and 100 percent made-from-scratch creative combinations, you’ll likely love any smoothie you choose!

Yago Juice

2125 N. Bellflower Boulevard, Long Beach, CA 90815

Here’s another local smoothie shop that blends up delicious creations with fresh, natural ingredients without added sugar. Although no single smoothie was called out in recommendation, it sounds like there’s something for everyone. Regardless of your preference for “fruity,” “tropical,” “chocolate,” or “nutty varieties,” you’ll be able to celebrate National Smoothie Day with a great tasting smoothie that is good for you too!

Natura Bowls

5353 E. 2nd Street, Suite B, Long Beach, CA 90803

Last but not least, we have Natura Bowls. Another local smoothie shop with fantastic reviews, you’ll have a tough time picking between all of the sweet and tangy summer blends—but then again, who said you have to pick just one? Even so, if you’re in the market for a recommendation, a great one to try is the Pineapple Passion—a perfect celebratory choice to enjoy National Smoothie Day!

There are so many great local smoothie shops in Long Beach that you should support! Put “National Smoothie Day” on your June 21 calendar slot, and don’t forget to show these businesses your love. Once you indulge in these healthy and satisfying treats, you may find yourself celebrating National Smoothie Day long after June 21 (and perhaps daily). And that’s a healthy habit we approve of!
