Part of my basic white girl behavior is as soon as the forecast hits 60 degrees, I crave a big 'ole smoothie like nobody's business. Thankfully, there is no shortage of delicious smoothie destinations here on the Seacoast.

Through my many years of smoothie consumption, I have found that different smoothies can benefit you depending on your mood and where you are in the day. See my chart below:

SLEEPY: A blend of coffee, almond milk, peanut butter and banana

ANXIOUS: Kale, frozen berries, coconut milk, avocado

PRE WORKOUT: Water, banana, frozen berries, flaxseed

POST WORKOUT: Pineapple chunks, baby spinach, plain greek yogurt, chia seeds, banana

POST MEAL: (good for digestion): fresh ginger, lemon juice, banana, avocado, water, coconut water

The other day I went for a stroll in downtown Portsmouth and decided to treat myself to a green smoothie (I believe it is called the "Kale Storm") from The Juicery. As I was frolicking with my smoothie in hand, I couldn't help but sing to myself  "'Tis the Damn Season" by our lord and savior, Taylor Swift. Because contrary to popular belief smoothie season is the most wonderful time of the year.

How lucky are we to have so many fine smoothie serving establishments within driving distance?  Here are my top smoothie spots on the Seacoast:
