In 2011 we brought you a round-up of ten smoothies we love in New York City. A handful of those spots have since closed, and others have opened, and of course, menus are always changing, and the we're always discovering more delicious options around the city.
This updated list includes long-time favorite spots like Liquiteria, Jus, and LifeThyme Market, but we also made room for some hip newcomers like The Butcher's Daughter and Melvin's Juice Box. And we're not just talking a cup full of mushed berries and yogurt here: these days, smoothies are made with everything from whole coconuts and cacao nibs to ginger and dates to watermelon to cilantro. If you love smoothies, put these 10 SE favorites on your to-drink list.
