Herbalife smoothies and teas are being served at Epic Nutrition, which opened its door in October in the Gunbarrel Shopping Center.

Epic Nutrition, serving Herbalife Nutrition smoothies and energy teas, opened its doors in October at the Gunbarrel Shopping Center. This is a sister enterprise to Fit Family Nutrition owned and operated by the same husband-wife team, Brad Larsen and Brook Kirwin. Fit Family Nutrition opened one year ago on South Main Street in Longmont.

"We make healthy eating fast, simple, and delicious," Larsen said. "We have over 20 flavors of smoothies and 10 flavors of energy teas, and the smoothies are a complete meal. It's meant for people on the go."

For $8 to $10, customers are served three items as a set - a smoothie flavor of their choice along with a green energy tea and a shot of aloe vera. According to Larsen, each smoothie is between 200-250 calories and contains 24 grams of protein and 21 vitamins and minerals.

The aloe vera soothes the digestive tract, Larsen said, allowing it to better absorb the nutrition in the smoothie. The smoothie ingredient foundation is plant-based and is prepared to suit all dietary preferences including vegetarian, gluten-free, soy and dairy-free.

In addition to the food made to order for walk-in customers, Epic Nutrition sells Herbalife Nutrition products to take and make at home and the staff offers meal planning consultation as well as wellness coaching.

Epic Nutrition's location was previously the Up Dog Café which was run in conjunction with Yoga Loft. The café closed last summer after a year of business.

Epic Nutrition is located at 6565 Gunpark Rd. Hours of operation are 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., Mondays through Fridays, closed on weekends. For more information, call 218-851-1371.For more information, visit https://www.facebook.com/epicnutritionco/ and http://www.Herbalife.com.
