OH, For The Love of Smoothies

When we moved to the OKC area 5+ years ago, there were many things that we missed. Of course, our family and friends were on the top of the list. But we missed other simple things like the grocery store that we had become accustomed too, the restaurants that we frequented that aren’t in OK.

So when traveling back to Texas, we made it a point to stop in at our favorite places while we were there visiting family and friends. It’s funny that they all new when we were coming for a visit, where we’d want to eat.

While I was in Texas a few months ago visiting my parents, my husband called me. Upon answer he said, “You’ll never guess what I just found”!
I couldn’t imagine what he’d “found” since he’s always on Craigslist on the hunt for his next bargain. So when he told me I was surprised.

He said, “OKC has a Smoothie King now”.

I really thought he was kidding. Then I thought, surely it is just another smoothie place. Nope, he texted me a picture and sure enough it’s a Smoothie King!

Oh my goodness. I love Smoothie King. It is a place that I have missed having from when we lived in Texas. I even looked into starting up a franchise when we moved here. But, that was more costly than I imagined.

But, I am oh so glad that someone had it in their budget to open not one, but two locations. The OKC location is a bit of a drive for me but I admit that I made the trip a few times. That is until the Edmond location opened just a few weeks ago.

Now I feel like saying, “Hello, my name is Tamara and I have a Smoothie addition”. I had at least 2 smoothies last week. On a side note, they’re great when you’re feeling under the weather. Can I use that as my excuse for now?

Do you like smoothies? Have you tried Smoothie Kind smoothies? Which is your favorite flavor?

This is not an ad of any kind, just my personal opinion. But I still wanted to share the addresses with you so you could try them out. And don’t forget to let me know what you think after you’ve tried a smoothie from there.

This is Day 2 of my personal writing challenge


  1. I don’t think I’ve purchased a smoothie since I was in college but we make them at home all the time. The boys love mixing and matching ingredients to find the perfect one for them. I’d have to say strawberries, bananas, plain or strawberry yogurt, a touch of Splenda and ice is my favorite.
