So many people think of Southern California and think all we eat are smoothies, juices, and salads.
These days there’s much more going on in SoCal when it comes to food, but, it’s true, we’ll always go for a good smoothie. One of my favorite places to get a smoothie is at Backyard Bowls, where everything is fresh and flavorful but never too sweet. I like the Tropical Ginger Smoothie so much that I decided to make my own version here! I called it the Santa Barbara Tropical Ginger Smoothie recipe. Cheers!
