As the days begin to heat up, we’ve put together the ultimate smoothie guide to help quench your thirst. Here’s where to find the best smoothies in the city from Central to Tsim Sha Tsui. Happily, all are vegan-friendly too!
ECO WARRIOR REMINDER: Don’t forget to BYO (bring your own) bottle, cup or container when grabbing your smoothie as single-use plastics only do our city harm.
