Oooooh! Morning walks on the beach and dolphin watching in perfect 70-degree weather seemed to just go hand in hand with enjoying a healthy breakfast afterward! Such is life in this section of Florida. Raw Juce, no “i”, is such a great stop for me personally in the morning, but really for any time.
This little shop is located just a few minutes from the ocean, and it’s while located in a strip mall (which makes for easy parking), it still has some greenery, palms and shaded outdoor seating making it a nice, chill atmosphere for enjoying your clean eats.
I’m a huge fan of all things cruelty-free and definitely one for good fresh-pressed juices, raw vegan treats, and acai bowls, and this place has an awesome variety of all of the above! Salads, smoothies and cleanses available also!
It’s actually a bit daunting to narrow down an acai bowl as they all sound so amazing and offer a little bit of something unique in each and every one. They all contained superfoods and were protein-packed! I decided to go with the charcoal bowl on my first visit because I’ve been pretty intrigued by the detoxifying substance for a while now. Admittedly, the dark color made me a tad nervous, but the staff assured me it didn’t affect the taste. It was delicious! The “Black Magic Bowl” included Banana, Mango, Açai, Almond Mylk, Protein Powder, Activated Charcoal blended together and topped with Banana, Chia Seeds, Flax & Hemp Granola, Coconut Flakes, Blueberry and I asked for it sans Raw Honey. It was a perfect acai bowl which meant the toppings were plentiful, added a perfect crunch to the soupy dish, and were evenly distributed. So glad to have finally tried charcoal. This was definitely the place to do so!
I also purchased some raw oatmeal cookies. They came two to an order and contained Almonds, Cashews, Oats, Dates, Hemp Seeds, Coconut Nectar, Madagascar Vanilla, Cinnamon, Maca, Cranberries, Goji Berries, Lemon Cashew Cream. Again, very tasty and huge! I love that even sweets can be eaten as a meal because all ingredients are pure and good for you! Raw vegan “desserts” are a bit of an acquired taste, but the ability to indulge guilt-free is priceless.
We had a few shots as well including the Beta-Immunity and Detoxifier. The staff informed me one is complimentary with Facebook check-in. I suggested they offer this on Yelp as well. We shall see! Theses shots were pre-packaged but had a limited, stamped shelf life and contain more ingredients than I’m used to in my shots which I appreciate. I’m a firm believer in food as, and instead of medicine, and totally believe these concentrated shots help boost immunity. Try them! There’s one for any ailment!
I definitely dug this place. A lot! The overall vibe, and the magnitude of their offerings. My not so “granola” Dad who I brought along was fairly impressed as well! So even if this isn’t normally your type of thing, I say give it a go here!
Prices are high, but not more than I’m used to paying for wholesome goods back home… Health is priceless if you ask me.
Looking forward to trying some more bowls next year when we’re in town again!
Happiness & Health always!
