Manhattan, Kansas has added a new addition to the food and drink scene: Café Green Tree. The new café specializes in all things smoothies and juices and promotes healthy living. 

Lately, there has been a trend revolving around fresh-pressed juice, açaí bowls and green smoothies, all of which Café Green Tree specializes in. I decided to jump on the bandwagon to see what all of the hype was about, and, surprisingly, I was not disappointed.

Café Green Tree is not like the average café. They do not serve any meals, muffins or scones, nor do they sell coffee (though the Marvelous Mocha smoothie does indeed contain coffee). 

However, the atmosphere is very bright and inviting. Additionally, being able to see the fresh fruit and other ingredients as soon as you walk in is always a refreshing feeling.

There are a variety of smoothie and juice options available, ranging from classic smoothies, indulgent smoothies, super foods juices, raw juices and energy bowls. Also, you have the option to create your own. 

The selections offer something for everyone from chocolate lovers to health nuts. With 21+ flavors, you are bound to indulge in something you love. I tried the classic Strawberries Wild, and it has definitely become a new favorite of mine.
