Tropical Smoothie Cafe is a restaurant chain that serves lunch items such as sandwiches, wraps, and flatbreads—as well as a range of tasty fruit and vegetable smoothies. With a beach-house theme, it’s a popular choice among diners looking for something lighter for lunch. But is there vegan food at Tropical Smoothie Cafe?
We’ve researched the online menu and allergen information so you don’t have to. If you’re happy to make substitutions and omissions to your food, you’ll find that there are 35 vegan options at Tropical Smoothie Cafe, including 21 smoothies. If you want to order a vegan smoothie, you’ll want to avoid any that contain milk, honey, or whey protein as an addition. We recommend the Avocolada, Sunrise Sunset, or Jetty Punch.
In terms of food, vegan items at Tropical Smoothie Cafe include a number of tasty options. The menu features Beyond Meat’s plant-based chicken substitute, which can be swapped in to any menu item that features chicken. We recommend the Baja Chicken Wrap made with plant-based chicken and without cheese, or the Thai Chicken Bowl with a plant-based swap-in. If you’re looking for something without a meat replacement, the Hummus Veggie Wrap or Bowl is a good option, but beware that you’ll need to ask your server to make it without cheese and ranch.
