I’m not a Pinkberry weakling, nor am I crazy obsessed over the frozen yogurt at Kiwiberri. In my opinion, the $5 that would have been spent on a cup of fro-yo is better allocated towards a croissant or brioche. Then why is it that I find myself more often than not, standing in front of the Claremont Kiwiberri cash register?
It’s the smoothies!!! I went in the other week, positively dying under the LA sun, and seeking a something cool to bring down my body temperature. I noticed that they offered smoothies on the menu, so why not? And it’s a good thing I did, because now I’ve found another item to add to my short list of “things I’m actually excited to eat in Claremont.”
The Kiwiberri smoothie blends together a cup of plain yogurt, strawberries, kiwis, and ice. It’s as simple and straightforward as can be. And that’s what I like best about it. Sweet and tart, with popping bits of kiwi seeds and the occasionally surprise of a little strawberry niblet that hasn’t blended all the way, it goes down quite nicely. At $3, it’s a pretty good deal, given that most smoothies will cost you around $5. Plus it’s so pleasantly pink looking – it wants to be your friend! Note: I’m not near joining one of those Pinkberri/Kiwiberri cults, I just happen to have a soft spot for their liquid concoctions!
