A dessert-type drink made by putting some combination of ice, fruit, fruit juice, tofu, ice cream, coffee, chocolate, sherbet, etc in a blender until smooth (hence the name). Smoothies are usually thick and fruity. I think the best smoothies are based on silken tofu, but all kinds of different stuff is used in the industry. When made with natural ingredients, smoothies are very tasty and highly nutritious.

Plenty of smoothie joints can be found around college campuses nationwide, and there are also a plethora of health-food-slanted smoothie places emerging all over, such as Jamba Juice.
