Sugar Rush: Smoothies at Taim in the West Village
At Taim, the falafels are the city's best and the fries are just as good. As for the smoothies? Among the best in the city. Fresh fruit, little sugar, with the final drink more towards icy and refreshing than creamy and filling. Simple touches with ingredients like lime, ginger, and basil provide a memorable touch. My favorite of their signature smoothies is the bright Date-Lime-Banana, though feel free to mix and match to your liking from a selection that includes pears, cantaloupe, and raspberries.
