Free Starbucks smoothies in Indianapolis

FYI, if you live in Indianapolis, you can get a free 16-ounce Orange Mango Banana or Banana Chocolate Vivanno on Tuesday, August 5 and Tuesday, August 12 – from 2 to 4 p.m. All you have to do is flash your gym membership card or Starbucks card at your local Starbucks. I’ve had theses smoothies and they’re fairly good, though almost anything that’s free tastes good to me (says the girl who eats her way through Whole Food’s free sample trays whenever she shops for sushi.) Here’s the nutritional information for the Banana Chocolate Blend and the Orange Mango Blend.

I have no idea if they’re doing this in markets outside of Indianapolis, but it might be worth calling your local Starbucks and asking.

They sound really good, but I hate the idea of drinking all of those calories!! If it were free, that might change my mind, though…

Yes they are doing them free here in the Chicago area too. I had a sample of the banana one the other day, and it was yummy.

The same deal is going on here in Kentucky too. I love the chocolate one – they put a whole banana in it! And I have them add a shot of espresso – it is on it’s way to replacing my morning iced mocha!

Their frozen lemonade is good, too. Not free, mind you, but tasty!

Yes, as noted, Chicago too. I’ve actually purchased these a couple of times. They’re not cheap ($3 maybe?) but nutritionally they’re not bad–especially the 6 grams of fiber and the whole banana. I’d probably do Jamba if it were closer to my workplace, but this is a good fix for those breakfast-less days.

This is going on nation-wide at all corporate stores, so drink up!

This is probably a sign that I've got problems, but the idea of sleeping for 30 hours sounds really appealing.

I'm linking to this because of the video of Harry Connick Jr. at the bottom, who manages to throw in an extra beat in the middle of a song to get people to start clapping on the offbeat without them even realizing. Mad skillz!
