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.
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.
My favorite new purchase lately has been a glass water bottle by Lifefactory. I have had a few plastic and metal water bottles over the years, but they always give the water a strange taste after a while. I picked up this bottle a few weeks ago and it is amazing because it keeps the water fresh all day. Since it is glass, I was a little concerned about its durability, but I have taken it to work and the gym and the rubber shell protects it well.
I have it in orange, but it comes in lots of bright and cheerful colors. I bought mine at Whole Foods, but they can be bought online at the Lifefactory website or on amazon. They are 220z and retail for $21.99.
