What's The Best Smoothie?

Whatever smoothie I’m drinking at the moment, that’s my answer! Consumer Reports took a nerdier approach, as they often do, and gathered a bunch of people to taste test various store-bought smoothies, then combined those opinions with information from nutritionists. Coming out on top in the dairy category was Lifeway Lowfat Kefir Strawberry, and in the fruit category was Bolthouse Farms Berry Boost Blend.

Of course, if you’re a true Consumerist you make your own smoothie at home, then drink it out of a glass you made yourself from sand that you willed into existence. It’s actually not that hard to make good smoothies, and here are some easy-to-follow recipes to get you started.
