Five Plus Smoothie, Melbourne CBD
A friend and I were in need of a liquid based remedy for our morning, so decided to go with a more hip option in Five Plus Smoothie, a place I’ve popped in a few times before. Drinks are a bit pricey but the combinations are interesting and tasty. Today’s choice was the muscle matcha drink, a smoothie withs spinach, matcha, green tea, silken tofu, dates, almond milk and ice. These ingredients made for a very green drink, with the resulting taste being a quirky mix of sweet tofu dessert. Definitely an acquired one, but we enjoyed it.
My top flavour is the Peanut butter cup, which has homemade peanut butter, banana, oats, dates, almond milk and ice. This drink has a wonderful nuttiness with the banana and dates giving it a lovely sweetness and the oats adding texture. All in all it makes for a nice dessert-like substance for your straw-based consumption.
