The average temperature in Qatar at the moment ranges from 45 to 50 degree Celsius daily that's why it's a mandatory thing to freshen up especially if your job requires you to head out during daytime. The extreme heat when not confronted can tremendously transform one's mood from worse to worst. Or in some cases, you'll just feel totally pissed off—and we can't let this happen.
One instant way to feel much better amidst the humid weather is to hydrate yourself. And by drinking, you're not only limited to the usual soda and coffee. There's so much more to that!
We now have smoothies which is a thick and cold beverage made from pureed raw fruit or vegetables blended with ice cream or frozen yogurt, along with other ingredients such as water, crushed ice, fruit juice, honey, and sometimes, milk. Unlike a milkshake, a smoothie typically contains less dairy and more organic products as it is supposed to be a healthier version of the former.
And since smoothies are more on the green side, they are also great agents of detoxification (or detox for short)—an alternative medicine treatment which aims to rid the body of unspecified 'toxins' which have undesirable short-term or long-term effects on individual health.
To get you going, we've listed FIVE of the most promising smoothie spots in Qatar. They're not only refreshing and flavorful, these colorful drinks are also packed with nutrients and energy boosters!
A famous juice brand from Kuwait, Asseer Time Qatar or sometimes also known 39er Time Qatar has now grown to three branches in the country. Their Al Wakrah, Al Gharafa, and Abu Hamour outlets serve all cold drinks at any time of day, giving justice to their "Time to Refresh!" tagline. A small-sized juice is reasonably priced at 17 QR while a large variety of the same drink costs 21 QR.

The idea of opening up a more exciting smoothie and milkshake outlet sprouted from the minds of two college friends in London and ever since the inception of their brainchild ShakeTastic, Josh and Amir's lives were changed especially when Qatar franchised the F&B brand back in 2016. Their two branches at Villagio and Gulf Mall are among the most jam-packed as they serve some of the cheapest and healthiest smoothies in Doha. For a price range of 25 QR - 39 QR, you can already taste the goodness of a ShakeTastic drink!
From freshly-squeezed juices, smoothies, and delicious & healthy food, Smoothie Factory—from the name itself—is the ultimate go-to place for those who are seeking to quench their thirst in an absolutely green way! Their first branch in Qatar opened just recently and while frozen yogurts are also a thing, smoothies are more preferred by their customers as they are made with signature premium packets that are formulated to provide your body with extra nutritional goodness. You can also customize your drink by selecting any nutritional boost—a feature that can only be found in their Al Sadd branch.
