There’s nothing better than a smoothie on a warm summer’s day. And being in Anaheim, California, you are minutes away from a variety of fruity concoctions. In honor of National Smoothie Day on June 21, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite local smoothie shops to support during the pandemic.

Scoop and Juice

Head north on the 5 Freeway to visit Scoop & Juice, a juice and smoothie bar with a menu that ranges from fresh-squeezed green juices to crunchy, sweet acai bowls and tropical fruit smoothies. Word around the block is that the acai smoothie is the best. You’re welcome.


Just a seven-minute drive from Stadium House Apartments, Bobatopia offers tapioca balls, also known as baba balls, in ANY drink upon request. The menu is stacked with smoothies, teas, drinks, food, and more. Order one of their lunch sandwiches and pair it with a honeydew, boba smoothie.

Protein Lab

If you are feeling healthy and want to pass on the smoothie, consider ordering from Protein Lab. With the goal of healthy eating in mind, Protein Lab has a nutritional menu that offers protein-packed smoothies, making it the perfect place to visit after your morning run or afternoon workout. With over 18 protein smoothies to choose from, you can’t go wrong!

Joe’s Italian Ice

For our more adventurous residents who want a sweet treat, Joe’s Italian Ice is the place. With over 1,500 reviews and 4.5 stars on Yelp, Joe’s is a hidden Anaheim gem. They offer ice cream smoothies, super sundaes, thick and creamy shakes, and soda floats. The best part is that their normal hours are 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., so if you feel like a late-night snack, they’ve got you covered.

While dine-in services are still prohibited, you can order takeout or delivery service from one of the four shops above. Not only will you be enjoying a cold treat, but you will also be bettering your community by supporting local businesses. Sounds like a win-win to us!
