Tropical Smoothie Cafe debuts holiday menu

Tropical Smoothie Cafe is celebrating the launch of its holiday menu.

Available until Dec. 31, the seasonal menu brings back the chain’s Naughty or Nice smoothie options. The "naughty" option, the Cranberry Truffle smoothie, is made with Ghirardelli white chocolate and yogurt, while the "nice" option, the Very Berry Cranberry smoothie, features a blend of cranberries and strawberries.

Guests will also be able to try the new Sweet 'n Smoky Flatbread, which features smoked cheese topped with a signature cranberry chipotle jam. The chain is also bringing back its Chicken Apple Club Flatbread, which includes all-natural grilled chicken breast, housemade crunchy kale and apple slaw, country honey Dijon dressing and a smoked cheese blend.

To celebrate the seasonal menu items, Tropical Smoothie Cafe is hosting a Spend and Receive promotion that allows guests who purchase a $25 gift card to receive a free 24-ounce smoothie at participating locations.
