Fresh cold-pressed juices and elixirs made from locally sourced ingredients is what's shaking inside the new, brightly colored Shaka Juice on Monsarrat Avenue in the 96815! The menu offers a variety of nutrient rich concoctions, from roots to greens and fruits to nuts. No matter what flavor you choose, each Shaka Juice packs a powerful punch of amino acids, phytonutrients, minerals and enzymes, which remain remarkably intact during the high-pressure extraction process, before hitting your lips a few hours later. Drinking a pressed juice is the fastest and easiest way to wash your system with the good stuff! I like to fancy myself a healthy eater, but with a busy schedule, I'm prone to eating whatever I can get my hands on, which doesn't necessarily do a body good. As part of my summer resolution, I've made a pact to workout more, and to eat, well, in this case, drink better. My two favorites, the subtly sweet Shaka Greens, a blend of kale, pineapple, celery, mizuna, bok choi, watercress, cucumber and lemon, and the Hawaiian Beets, simply beets and pineapple, are perfect for just after those hot South Shore workouts. If you really want to wipe the slate clean, Shaka suggests their one, three, or 5-day juice cleanse. Available with or without food, they will provide everything you need to rest, repair and rejuvenate your digestive system. Moral of the feel and look good story is to start inside and work your way out - heart, mind, body and Shaka Juice!
The 96815 Tip - The lovely Lia, photographed above, had me taste the freshly pressed Almond Milk (almonds, alkaline water & dates) over their crisp, crunchy granola. Heavenly!
