Originally Answered: Is this a healthy breakfast choice?
i own a smoothie bar and can tell you that yes, this is healthier than a combo meal at mcdonalds, but the additives that places like tropical smoothie and smoothie king put into smoothies are not healthy. i have a peanut butter cup smoothie on my menu (a healthier version), and it's the most popular....so good choice! the dark chocolate is most likely a chocolate syrup (which is loaded with sugar). also, the acai berry is either a juice (which contains less than 2% acai fruit) or shebert, not the actual berry. therefore, it's not as healthy as you think. even though splenda doesn't contain sugar or calories, it's still unhealthy. my advice is to leave out the acai berry, substitute the dark chocolate for chocolate protein and no splenda or sugar (the peanut butter has plenty to make it sweet). or you could just find another smoothie bar in your area that uses 100% fruit (smoothie king claims to, but they really use sugary syrups).
