    I live in Canada, and I tried Booster Juice and Jugo Juice. Jugo Juice tastes more like juice but it isn't a great combination of fruits...:confused: I've heard Jamba Juice(which isn't in Canada), is it better than them? Booster Juice's logo looks like Jamba Juice's with strawberry added. :p Anyways, what's the best smoothie store in Canada?

    Make my own. Beats any of the smoothie places hands down. Cheaper, too!

    *hugs my hand-held blender*

    I only have experience with Booster Juice as far as smoothies.. But if Yogen Fruz frozen yogurt from the movie theater is any indication of their abilities, I bet they make a mean smoothie.

    I dunno though, I don't think anything can beat some of my favorite Booster Juice flavors...

    - Mango Hurricane
    - Banana Beach
    - Raspberry Rapture

    P.S. in writing this, I realized how fun "banana" is to type.

    Jamba Juice?

    I like the raspberry smoothy, but they also have a peanut butter smoothy that's fricken wicked awesome.

    Where in Canada do you live? Because if you live in Toronto the Papaya Hut has the best smoothies bar none.

    Honestly, I'm digging McDonald's Strawberry Banana smoothie at the moment. It's quick and extremely refreshing. If I were going to go with a real smoothie place... I'd go with Tropical Smoothie Cafe, their "Low-Fat Island Fever" with pineapple, peaches and banana is awesome.

    F yeah..... I miss the Papaya Hut!

    And I miss Ritz's, which is around there too. <--- not smoothie related.


    I find that I enjoy Jamba Juice more than Booster Juice. I think there's more variety.

    Avoid starbucks for a couple months and you'd probably have enough money for a top of the line blender. ;)

    Tropicana Juice Bar in Melbourne.

    Sorry, but nobody in Toronto knows fruit juice and smoothies better than Giles at Tropicana in Melbourne, and I doubt anyone in Edmonton would either (but I've never been to Edmonton). ;)

    I never drink Starbucks except their cheap kids hot chocolate for $1. ;) (bring my little sister who's under 12 years old) Right now, I'm stuck with that cheap Miracle Blender that doesn't have any buttons to control blending.

    Guess you are going to have to wait for a BlendTec blender sale, so you can make some Android Cellphone smoothies.

    I have very little experience, but pinkberry has started to pop up out here in LA, and they are good.
