Searching for the perfect fruit smoothie! Where do you get yours, CT?

stuck in Hartford County | May 8, 2010 01:59 PM

Not sure what's come over me, but l've been craving fruit smoothies this spring. I already posted my love for Stew Leonards' pina colada/berry combo, but it's a little too sweet (OK, FAKE). I don't really like "milky/creamy" style smoothies- just fruit juice, fruit and...whatever. No healthy *hit like vitamins/wheat germ/grass or hippie stuff.

In high school, I worked at Everything Yogurt and we made good banana/strawberry smoothies (strawberries/bananas/honey/orange juice).

I'm not above a good cola/cherry slurpee from the gas station 7-eleven, or a red icee, either (are these the same?).

There's a really good smoothie place in the back of the National Hotel on Block Island. There's a Robeks in my hometown (EXPENSIVE/HIPPIE STUFF ALERT). Sadly, no Jamba Juice near here :( I miss the Orange Juluis stand in the New Orleans airport! Island Oasis too FAKE/SWEET.

Where do you get yours, CT?
