Where to get a smoothie in Albany?

green smoothie by flickr user joyosityJanae asked on Twitter today:

Where can I get a smoothie in Albany? Recommendations?

We retweeted, and there were a bunch of suggestions. Apparently people have many opinions about smoothies!

So, with Janae's blessing, we plucked her question from the ephemeral stream of Twitter and gathered the answers here (after the jump). Smoothie seekers of the future, thank Janae.

And if you have a suggestion to add, please do!

If you mean one of those health drinks, Sun Frost Farms in Woodstock. I can't guarantee that you'll run into David Bowie while there, but it could happen.

If you're not concerned about health benefits, Ben and Jerry's makes great smoothies.

In the Concourse of the Empire State Plaza: during lunch hours (11 - 2) Honest Weight Food Co-op is now in the large cafeteria & are offering fresh made smoothies. Also we now have Au Bon Pain in 2 areas of the concourse & they advertise smoothies as well. They are open all day.

Green leaf cafe on Quail is pretty good

Lil' Buddha Tea on Lark Street (between Hudson + Hamilton) makes really great smoothies. It's a great little place. They also make raw juices and have a great vegan menu.

Already said but Lil' Buddha! Also, surprisingly good is Fresh Healthy Cafe in Crossgates.

Daily Grind on Lark makes an amazing Peanut Butter Banana smoothie with real peanut butter and a whole banana.
They have a wide selection of flavors there.

Honest Weight Food Coop, all the way!! Great selection and also have a diverse selection of raw juices.

The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up.
