Summertime-Limited Smoothie “Choco-Mint Frute” at PABLO’s Dotonbori Store in Osaka!
“PABLO” is a store from Osaka that specializes in freshly-made cheese tarts.
Focusing on sales rather than services, PABLO is a very popular store with 35 locations in Japan and 9 overseas.
This time around, I visited their Dotonbori store to try their summertime-limited smoothie.
The Dotonbori store is located right next to the Shinsaibashisuji Shopping Street, and there’s almost always a line even on weekdays.
The café on the 2nd floor is spacious and comfortable.
In addition to their popular “PABLO Frute” smoothie, they are also offering three limited-time smoothies: peach, choco-banana, and choco-mint.
These limited smoothies are being sold from June 15th through August 14th.
Incidentally, they typically also sell two other smoothies: a drinkable cheese tart frute and a shiratama-and-azuki-cream uji matcha cheese frute.
Product name in Japanese：チョコミントフルーテ
This smoothie blends cream cheese and mint flavors together.
They use two types of mint, spearmint and peppermint.
There are also plenty of chocolate chips!
It is topped with a whipped cream made with cream cheese.
There’s a subtle saltiness and richness from the cheese.
It pairs perfectly with the slightly-bitter dark chocolate sauce.
The refreshing flavor of the mint is excellent, making for a pleasantly cool and delicious drink!
It’s a flavor that’s perfect for hot days!
