Looking for a good smoothie in downtown DC

Any thoughts about fruit smoothies? I've tried the places in the National Press food court and the Reagan Building. They're OK. Caribou makes a few decent ones.

But are there any downtown that will knock socks off? Thanks.

  1. What about a smoothie would knock your socks off? Just today I had my first smoothie ever thanks to a half price coupon for Robek's. It was OK but I'd just as soon have frozen yogurt or good ice cream. I guess they're supposed to be healthy?

    What should I look for in a smoothie? If I find it, I'll tell you.

    1. i'm not a smoothie connoisseur by any stretch of the imagination and i actually i prefer fresh fruit juices to smoothies, but the Juice Joint on Vermont might be a good choice. I've had a smoothie there once and it was good. I love their fresh juices!

      1. Don't know if this counts as downtown, but Java Green makes fantastic smoothies.

        1. I am also not a smoothy expert but I really like the several flavors I have tried at Juice Joint on Vermont Ave between K and L Streets. And judging by the lines out the door during lunch hours, others agree.

            Thanks all. I'm looking for something with a lot of great fruit and few syrup shortcuts. I'll give some of these recs a try this week.

          2. I like the smoothies at Camille's on F between 6th and 7th. (Their tuna salad sandwich or wrap is great too--with apples in it. Yum.)
