Banana Nut Smoothie, Cap City Squeeze


Although loads of milkshakes masquerade as smoothies, Cap City Squeeze juice bar (1426 14th Street) serves the real deal out of a tiny shop bursting with fresh fruit smells. Its Banana Nut Smoothie ($5.25 for a small) tastes like—and I mean this in the best way possible—a hearty bowl of cold oatmeal. Using almond milk as opposed to a fattier dairy option, the shop blends bananas, oats and old-fashioned peanut butter sweetened with just a hint of honey and cinnamon. Located about a block from Capitol Park, Cap City serves the ideal thing to sip while you stop and smell the actual roses.
