Craving a vegan smoothie but not sure where to go? With more than 800 locations across the U.S., Tropical Smoothie Cafe has you covered with tons of vegan options. From its long list of luscious smoothies to the various wraps, bowls, and flatbreads that the chain offers for lunch and dinner, trying them all would be a (yummy) challenge.

Here’s the ultimate guide to eating vegan at Tropical Smoothie Cafe.

The menu varies slightly from one location to the next, but most of these items should be available at your local haunt. Let’s start with the most important part: the smoothies. Tropical Smoothie has dozens to choose from, and it usually has at least one or two special seasonal offerings as well. Each one offers a blend of healthy fruits and veggies in one of the most scrumptious ways we’ve found to get them. Try to do the impossible and pick just one of these:

  • Acai Berry Boost
  • Avocolada
  • Blimey Limey
  • Blueberry Bliss
  • Chia Banana Boost with Peanut Butter
  • Chia Banana Boost with Strawberry
  • Detox Island Green
  • Island Green
  • Jetty Punch
  • Lean Machine
  • Paradise Point
  • Pomegranate Plunge
  • Sunrise Sunset

There are also two options for young people:

  • Kids Jetty Junior
  • Kids Lil’ Lime Berry

Needing an extra nutrient boost? Fortify your smoothie with one of these supplements or add-ins:

  • Energizer
  • Fat Burner
  • Multi-Vitamin
  • Pea Protein Powder
  • Probiotic
  • Vitamin B12
  • Vitamin-C Immune Complex
  • Almonds
  • Chia Seeds
  • Ginger
  • Ground Flaxseed

When you “Make It a Meal” by adding an entrée, you get $1.80 off your smoothie. Try pairing it with one of these eats to save some green while eating green. At participating locations, you can swap out the chicken in any of these dishes for vegan chicken:

  • Baja Chicken Wrap or Bowl (Just remove the cheddar.)
  • Buffalo Chicken Wrap or Bowl (Ask for no mozzarella or ranch dressing.)
  • Caribbean Jerk Chicken Wrap or Bowl (Ask for it without cheddar.)
  • Supergreen Caesar Chicken Wrap or Bowl (Ask for no Parmesan, Parmesan crisps, or Caesar dressing.)
  • Thai Chicken Wrap or Bowl

Or go for the Hummus Veggie Wrap or Bowl (just hold the pepper jack and ranch dressing).

For breakfast, go for the Peanut Butter Banana Crunch Flatbread. (Just remove the honey to help bees.) When you make it a meal, you also get a free side item. Choose from Oven Baked Lay’s or Miss Vickie’s Simply Sea Salt Chips, or go even healthier with an apple, a banana, or an orange.
