Smoothies remedy that which ails
Rush provides delicious smoothies that are for the hung over and health-conscious.
Located at 1207 13th St., Rush has a drink for everyone, including a guaranteed hangover cure. Loaded with powerful antioxidants, the name of this famous smoothie is “Poe’s Hangover Cure.” Among the ingredients, this drink contains a “double hangover rusher.” It is so packed with nutrients, it evens comes with a guarantee that it will help get rid of your hangover.
Most of the smoothies on the menu contain the acai berry. The berry tastes similar to a strawberry, and it is loaded with three times the antioxidants of blueberries.
Rush doesn’t use any added sugar, high-fructose corn syrup or artificial flavoring in their ingredients. All of their smoothies range between only 250-300 calories each.
Three years ago, the restaurant formerly known as Xoom Juice changed their name to “Rush” and started making their “famous bowls.”
I chose to get a Beach Bowl, with honey and hemp granola mixed in with a smoothie. This treat satisfied my craving for a small, tasty breakfast for $6.25.
Unfortunately, there was not a warm, sunny day to compliment my frozen breakfast. Instead, it was bitter outside and eating a frozen meal on a freezing day failed to give my any kind of natural “rush” other than that accompanied by hypothermia.
Since there is no indoor seating in this cramped smoothie shop, I found myself sitting outside at the “bar,” cursing myself for failing to choose a warmer item on the menu.
Recently, Rush began offering hot oatmeal and cinnamon chai cider to keep customers returning during the winter months.
At their new, remote location at Yarmouth Avenue and Broadway, they have a full coffee bar complete with a large indoor and outdoor seating area.
