I'd only visited Tropical Smoothie twice before b/c the locations weren't convenient for me. Accidentally happened upon this newly opened (April 2014) location just this week.
Most of their smoothies are already vegan, many of the others can be made vegan. I'm not certain about the some of supplements yet. I have sent a request to their corporate center and will update once I get feedback. (The store managers are ingredient-clueless.)
My fav smoothies so far are Acai Berry Boost, Sunrise Sunset, Blimely Limey, and Mango Magic (w/o the yogurt). Very refreshing and a satisfying breakfast replacement. (They currently have a 1/2 off happy hour special from 7am-9am, everyday!)
The wraps and flatbreads are customizable. Just omit any cheeses, ranches or mayo, add Beyond Meat (!!) and your fav veggies. The Jamaican Jerk (no cheese), Southwest "Chicken" (no cheese/ no ranch), Hummus Veggie (no cheese), Baja "Chicken" (no cheese, sub ranch for jerk sauce instead), are all yummy. I'm holding out on the Buffalo "Chicken" wrap b/c I know a lot of people use butter in their buffalo sauce. Once I get that response from corporate, I'll update.
They have plain baked Lays or fruit that come with your wraps, or as an extra with the flatbreads.
This is a great vegan-friendly, healthy breakfast/ lunch/ light-dinner option for those in the North Scottsdale/ North Phoenix area. It's located off of N Scottsdale Rd and Mayo Blvd, in the Scottsdale 101 plaza, near the Red Robin, and right next to the Subway and Starbucks.
Plenty of parking, easy to spot, limited indoor seating, and only a couple of outdoor seats. Clean, friendly and welcoming employees (just uninformed about their products).
Open 7am-9pm M-F, 8am-9pm Sat/Sun. Accepts credit cards.
Often has Groupon deals! Other deals available via their Facebook page or by signing up for their text alerts.
Cons: management unknowledgable re ingredients
