But a girl can begin to crave healthy food after so much decadent deliciousness, so when my daughter suggested we try out the new smoothie place in town, I was game.
Loveshack Juicery is a new addition to Ogunquit this year. The array of smoothies, smoothie bowls, juices, etc. is staggering. My daughter has been looking forward to going there ever since it opened.
When I saw her drink, I knew it would be today's post. Remember when Missy blogged about her daughter's smoothie bowl and everyone wanted to know about Dragon fruit? My daughter chose the Flamingo. It had a mix of Pitaya, strawberries, pineapple, agave & coconut water. The perfect drink for the 4th and for the hot day we had.
They had cards at the register that explained what all the fuss is about Pitaya.
There were so many great choices (See the menu here). I think they've inspired some of my smoothies for the rest of the summer:
SURF SHACK has Pineapple, strawberries, banana, coconut butter & coconut water
LOCAL BERRIES is made with Maine blueberries, strawberries, banana, agave & cashew milk
Since I'm currently reading The Beekeeper's Ball by Susan Wiggs, I was intrigued by this one:
BEE KEEPER: Maine blueberries, oats, banana, agave, bee pollen & cashew milk
They make their own cashew milk.
So why Dragon fruit?
If you couldn't read the fine print above, watch this video.
Okay, I'm putting 2 videos because this lady is just SO excited about Dragon fruit.
