I Wanna Banana Manna

8 Jan

Yes, I’m obsessed! At the Beverly Hills Juice, you pick your favorite fresh, cold pressed juice and then blend it into a delicious creamy (vegan) smoothie by adding a mix of bananas with almonds, cacao or sunflower seeds.

My absolute favorite Apple-Persimmon-Coconut, Almond Banana Manna. It’s also great with the Mixed Greens and the Apple-Ginger (if you like to try edgy new flavors).

If you haven’t been there you are missing out on the best smoothies in town! And believe me, I’ve tried them all!

Remember… Eat Healthy, Be Happy!

Food of the Week: Persimmon

31 Jan

Persimmons are by far my favorite fruit. They are orange colored, very sweet and contain lots fiber. They are also rich in vitamin C, beta carotene, calcium, folate, iron, magnesium and potassium.

They are believed to reduce the risk of atherosclerosis, improve lipid function and even combat hangovers!

I eat them by cutting them horizontally in half and scooping the flesh out with a spoon. You can also eat them with the skin, just make sure they are ripe.

Enjoy!
