Best Smoothies - Providence

Garris | Apr 15, 2007 01:24 PM

Now that Spring is here and Summer's around the corner, where does everyone find their favorite smoothies?

By my criteria, fresh or frozen ingredients must be used (not smoothie-flavoring gel #3 from a jar, as is the case in the Starbucks chains I've been to) and the smoothie must actually be *smooth*, not icy...

That said, I haven't had many around here, but my favorites are:

1) Three Sisters: Oak Hill/Blackstone
- The closest to what I make at home. Fairly smooth, but still with a clump of ice at the bottom
2) Coffee Edge: Wayland Square
- Also nice and smooth, but still with a clump of ice at the bottom. I *love* their green tea smoothie

Worth considering if already there
Jac's Wraps: Pawtucket
- They're merely OK. Since Jac's seems never to be open when I'm by there, I can't see if they've improved at all

Not worth trying:
Ben and Jerry's
- At least the one on Thayer is mostly all ice and mostly tasteless.

Other favorites that everyone has?
