    The blueberry banana smoothie at Corral Tree Cafe in Brentwood ;)
    (although last time I went there they didn't make it as good-read:creamy- as they usually do)
    They're supposed to serve "healthy, organic food" so it's probably not full of chemicals.

      Best Smoothies/protein drinks are in West Hollywood - at the Power Zone at Capitol Drugs under the 24 hour fitness on Santa Monica Blvd. in downtown Weho.

        concur. this is such a hidden/but not so hidden gem.

        also a great place to purchase supplements if you sign up for the 10% discount card.

        there's also body factory on sunset in hollywood that does some great high protein shakes as well...try the Hulk

        6366 Sunset Blvd
        hollywood, ca 90028

        Just had a to-die-for nectarine smoothie at M Cafe de Chaya, we threw in a banana for good measure and the thing just rocked. I'd go get it right this second.

          I like the smoothies at Leaf Cuisine "Real, Live, Raw" on Franklin, in Hollywood, across from the Scientology Celebrity Centre (fortunately, there is no affiliation!)

            Santa Monica Farms on Main near Pico. Excellent fresh fruit smoothies. Peaches when ripe, YUM! They don't get any better.

                Definitely NOT the wolfgang puck cafe at Universal City. $5.50 for a smoothie that must have been about 7 ounces, and was nothing but ice crystals.

                  i am addicted to the smoothie drinks at Elpe? i think that's the name, i'm not sure. it's at the 3rd street and Fairfax farmers market between singapores banana leaf and pinkberry. i'm addicted to the watermelon, pineapple, mint. also very lovely was the mango ginger lemon honey - much thicker than the other one. they only add a little bit of sugar and nothing else, but i usually get it w/o the sugar. really refreshing drinks. other combos i haven't tried yet are strawberry banana red pepper and kiwi banana spinach.

                    Yes! That place is great, Clyde! I totally forgot to mention it. Interesting desserts as well -- light, fluffy fruit cakes and stuff like that.
