My birthday was a few weeks ago and one of my friends who lives on the East Coast had a dozen cupcakes from Babycakes in NYC shipped to me. Despite having to travel a few thousand miles, the cupcakes arrived fresh and delicious. Each cupcake is wrapped individually and the frosting comes on the side. Since I did not eat a dozen cupcakes for my birthday, I was able to freeze the remaining and enjoy them with others throughout the summer.
It was a wonderful birthday surprise and I am looking forward to visiting Babycakes next time I am in New York.
Whenever I am in Los Angeles I always try and make a stop at Beverly Hills Juice. Whenever I am there I pick up a banana manna smoothie made with coconut strawberry juice and it is delicious. Banana Manna is Beverly Hills Juice’s homemade ice-cream consisting of almonds and banana. I was thrilled last time I was in to see they now sell pints of Banana Manna. I picked one up and have been enjoying it topped with blueberries for a perfect summertime snack. I suggest picking up a pint if you are ever in the area.
Beverly Hills Juice is located at 8382 Beverly Blvd. in Los Angeles, CA
I recently got back from a vacation to Maui! It was a wonderful trip and I am excited to share some of the highlights. A few days ago we went to Lahaina and I was lucky to find some delicious vegan tacos at The Window. They had black beans, lots of fresh veggies, and some pineapple which made it deliciously sweet.
After lunch we headed down the street to Ululani’s Shave Ice for dessert. Although I have never been a big fan of shave ice, these were delicious! They were the perfect dessert after a long day of snorkeling in the hot Hawaiian weather.
