The Best Smoothie in Every State
Nothing refreshes like a smoothie, and some can even make filling, healthy meals. We're big fans, whether it's a blend of sweet fruits to refresh or a greens-and-protein-packed powerhouse. What makes a great smoothie? We always look for the freshest ingredients—real fruits and veggies are non-negotiable—great vibes, and a loyal local fan base.
With that in mind, we scoured reviews, talked to locals, and looked back on our own travels around the country to put together a definitive list of the best smoothie spots in the United States.
Please note: All of the included restaurants are open as of publication, or offering takeout. However, with regulations changing almost daily (at least it seems like it), please call or check the restaurant's website or social media before running out the door.
