There’s something irresistible about a well-crafted smoothie.
Jam-packed with delicious fruits, vegetables, seeds, and other ingredients like honey or oat milk, a good smoothie hits the spot, packs some punch in the flavour department, and offers up some solid nutritional value to boot.
That’s the core of what inspired the launch of Unruly Smoothie, Hamilton’s newest spot for those bountiful beverages that’s already gaining lots of local attention.
A family-owned business that opened in summer of 2022, Unruly Smoothie specializes in smoothies that are hand-crafted exclusively with plant-based ingredients and made without any added sugar as well, letting the natural flavours of the smoothie’s components do the talking.
The smoothie bar’s cozy, humble storefront at 166 King Street West evokes tropical vibes, with walls of white lattice covered in vines and other leafy plants peppered all over the place.
It’s a fitting vibe that sets visitors up for what they can expect out of Unruly Smoothie: fruit-forward smoothies, freshly made to order and vibrantly colourful, sporting bright and inviting flavours that are built to pull you right out of the winter chill and into the summer sun.
Unruly Smoothie has been sure to craft an extensive menu with a diverse range of options, even including choices that make use of pre-workout supplements or function as protein-packed, post-workout sippers.
But even for those simply looking for a tasty, healthy treat will have plenty to choose from here, with smoothie creations like the Mango Sunset, which combines mango, banana, and cinnamon for kick of tropical flavour; the Mean Green Smoothie, a nutrient-dense blend of kale, spinach, chia seeds, banana, dates, honey, and oat milk; or the Berry Blast, which marries the sweetness of strawberries, blueberries, and cherries.
That barely scratches the surface of the offerings at Unruly Smoothie, which takes pride in their growing and ever-shifting menu of more than two dozen smoothie selections to suit a wide array of tastes and preferences.
On top of their smoothies, Unruly Smoothie has also begun offering sea moss gel: a product made from a type of red algae that’s believed to have a wide variety of health benefits including supporting immunity, heart health, and gut health while also being packed with nutrients like Vitamin B, Calcium, Vitamin B12, Magnesium, and Zinc.
Available in 16-ounce jars to take home, Unruly Smoothie offers their sea moss gel in a number of flavours like mango, strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, dragonfruit, and spinach & elderberry. They also uses it as an ingredient for select smoothies on their menu.
With such an appealing menu and a scrappy entrepreneurial spirit behind the whole operation, it’s exciting to see a new small business like Unruly Smoothie open up shop in Hamilton and readily carve out a dedicated customer base that will hopefully help make them a staple for years to come.

I used to drink smoothies many years ago but they were always adding sugar and sweeteners. Unruly Smoothie doesn’t do that and the Smoothie taste great.
