To help you find the best ones, we’ve narrowed down the top restaurants in Mumbai where you can head to for a great smoothie.
1) Kitchen Garden By Suzette
At this tiny restaurant in Bandra, you can hog to your heart’s content without watching out for the calories; most of their food falls in the ‘healthy food’ category.

4) Café At The NCPA
Café At The NCPA is an open air café that has the perfect ambience where you can sit leisurely for hours.

Where: Bandra, Fort
6) Jamjar Diner
After Jamjar Diner included some new healthy dishes into its menu, it has been a favorite among those conscious of the calories they’re consuming.

Smoothie Factory’s menu focuses only on smoothies, so it is a surprise that this little restaurant isn’t too popular among health freaks already.
