Enough with the $12 juices already. Sometimes you just want a no-frills smoothie, chock-full of delicious and nutritious ingredients to cool down with on summer days. The newly opened Smooth Eats (124 S. Sixth St., Suite 160, @smootheatslv on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter), which has taken over the old Grass Roots space, offers just that. Smoothies in the $5-$6 (add-ons $0.50-$1) price range, along with paninis ($6-$7) and breakfast bowls, are on offer at the to-go-only space, giving Downtown denizens a healthy option on the go. A must-try is the Fairytale smoothie bowl (right, $7), made with Blue Majik Spirulina, dragon fruit balls, kiwi slices, coconut flakes, banana, green algae and coconut milk, sprinkled with granola and chia seeds. The blue hue is reminiscent of the Greek Islands, and while you may be stuck in the desert, you can at least feel better about putting something good in your body. Eat this for breakfast and glow all day.
