Best Smoothie - 2011
Northwest Coffee Roasting Company
The soul of a smoothie is fruit. Not purées with lengthy lists of hodgepodge ingredients, just no-nonsense fruit. The Northwest Coffee Roasting Company's Clayton location keeps it simple when it comes to making smoothies: fruit, juice and yogurt. You can choose from a menu of combos, but no one will bat an eye if you dictate precisely what goes in. The inventory includes strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, banana and pineapple, blended smooth with apple, orange, grape or cranberry juice and nonfat yogurt. If that's not enough to float your boat, you can give your beverage a boost with vitamins and/or supplements. The smoothies are offered in sixteen- and twenty-ounce sizes and range in price from $4.25 to $5.45. No more triple-tall-five-pump-vanilla-soy-no-whip-with-caramel-sauce mochas for you, pal.
