Avid mystery post guesser and local writer/blogger Melissa Yen took at crack at last summer’s mystery chandlier post, and identified the gorgeous Sepia light fixtures immediately. It took her a few months, but she finally settled on Doc’s Juice bar for her guest post, focusing on the kale-and-blueberry packed brown smoothie. I can’t believe I didn’t know about this place, and love the idea of a kale smoothie that doesn’t taste like vegetables..I also love the guest blog posts that show me something new around town. Yen’s post and pics below..
I am obsessed with healthy food lately. Kale. Kale is your friend because it is chock full of vitamins A, C, E , K & B6, along with calcium, niacin, zinc, iron, etc. ….And blueberries…how can you pack that much antioxidant activity into those tiny little berries? Put them together and you can conquer the world, or at least your health. Who would have even thought of putting them together? Doc’s Juice and Smoothies, is who. Doc’s is located at in a spacious, bright storefront. They use all organic ingredients and are “The Home of the Veggie Smoothie.” They promise you won’t taste the veggies and you don’t. I’m addicted to the Brown Smoothie. As a rule of thumb, you should not associate the word brown with food. It’s just not appetizing. I don’t care what they call it. I call it delicious. Kale, spinach, blueberries, bananas, mangos and apple juice; That is the magic combo. I would rather spend $4.99 on one of these healthy, tasty treats than on a fancy frappuccino. That frappuccino buzz will be gone in an hour, although the 15 grams of fat and 400 calories will settle around your waist and stay awhile. The Brown Smoothie will fill you up with vitamins, antioxidants and yummy fruit flavor. You won’t taste the greens, Doc and promise. 2151 W. Armitage, 773.278.5600.
