A Healthier Alternative to The Norm

Jaime Aparicio, Arts and Entertainment Editor

Prior to the beginning of the summer semester, the Rio Café introduced a healthy fruit smoothies. Located near the Wray Theater, students can now head over and purchase these healthy additions . New and continuing students can surely appreciate a fruity taste in the summer heat.

Rio Café employee, Marlon Sanchez and fellow co-workers began training for the menu’s newest smoothies.  They started their training weeks before the start of Fall semester, learning the juicing and smoothie process. Madrid compares their smoothies the famous chain, Jamba Juice, saying that their selections are a better alternative choice. The majority of the smoothies are capable to substitute a small meal to help students living with a budget.

The staff at Rio Café takes pride in their fruit drinks, surpassing the quality in other wellk-known juice chains . Employees at the cafe produce each drink on an order-to-order basis. Causing the waiting time to be lengthier, but assure quality taste.

Two different fruits can be applied to a custom smoothie and a optional protein can be added for a more filling sensation. And of course the pre-made selections are an option as well for those not wanting to take the time to craft their own smoothie. Price point ranges from $4.65 to the $6 but, again, are a healthier choice to consume.
