I’m new to the East side. I am NOT used to the heat. I am used to ocean breezes. This recent heat wave in Los Angeles has been a real doozy.
Sweat I can deal with, but the lethargy that stays until the night air settles in makes me so restless.
I naturally left my place to seek refuge in an air-conditioned coffee shop, but I found myself sitting outside catching up with my mom on the phone. And there it was: The Juice LA.
I had seen it plenty of times before. I even looked up the website. But the website led me to believe that this place only had juice. I was 10ft away, so I why not check it out? I was warmly greeted by a gentleman and he gave me the lowdown of the menu.
Exciting stuff, I know. But what’s even better is that it tastes delicious. They don’t gyp you on the juice either. As you can see, all of my juice wasn’t used in the smoothie so I still got the rest of it! I chose juice #3 and the banana almond cream 🙂
You can also just get a juice or just get ice cream. But I highly recommend trying the combo. I was initially weary, but the ice cream takes away from the bite of the juice, unless you get something with a lot of ginger, but that would be expected.
Although this smoothie helped me through the heat, my judgment was clouded. I paid $12 for a smoothie. No, it is not something I will do often, but desperate times call for…
But it was worth it to me in that moment.
According to the website the only permanent location is in Atwater Village, CA but I swear I saw one today while I was in Highland Park. Maybe it is on the verge of opening.
For now, check out the Atwater Village location and let me know what you think! And Stay Cool. 🙂
There’s no better time than now,
