In honor of my most recent smoothie post, here’s another (brief) one dedicated to smoothies and healthy eating. Just yesterday afternoon I visited Fuel Champion Restaurant in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn. Fuel offers health food and fruit/veggie smoothies, with the addition of protein powder by request. The environment was very casual and most people took their food and smoothies to go, but there are some tables in the restaurant to sit and relax while you eat your meal as well. In addition to health food and smoothies, Fuel offers a wall of refrigerators containing your choice of beverage, including Vitamin Water, Gatorade, energy drinks, and protein shakes. In addition, there was also a large selection of packaged snacks such as nuts, trail mix, and protein bars, for a quick on-the-run boost.
The menu is extensive, ranging from breakfasts, wraps, and burgers, to salads and smoothies. View the full menu here. After much contemplation, I decided on the Fuel Energy Power Smoothie (which is actually not listed on the menu posted online but can be found on the menu on the wall of the restaurant), consisting of banana, blueberry, spinach, acai berry, and soy milk. It was delicious to say the least, and even more satisfying because I watched it being made with my own eyes from all fresh ingredients. Unfortunately, I have not tried the food at this spot yet, although I intend to try it soon; so keep posted on my Twitter and Instagram for more information!
Don’t live in Brooklyn? That doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the delicious smoothie combinations on Fuel’s menu. Check out the link above and try making some of them at home! Then if you’re ever in the area, don’t forget to stop by to try your favorite recipes from their original source.
Fuel Champion Restaurant is located at 1715 Sheepshead Bay Road in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn. It is just around the corner from the Sheepshead Bay stop of the Q and B trains!
Stay fit and fresh, all!
