This Week's Food Finds: Frappucinos + Juices Perfect for Summer
This week’s fresh finds include iced drinks and healthy fruit juices to help you beat the scorching heat:
Starbucks Roasted Marshmallow S’mores and Summer Berry Panna Cotta Frappucinos
Available starting April 19, these two sweet chillers are summer-perfect: you get the flavors of roasted marshmallows sandwiched with chocolate between graham crackers and the sweet layers of berries in these two new blended beverages from Starbucks.
Pure Nectar Cold-Pressed Juices
What if you can drink your daily dose of veggies and fruits in one bottle? A 300 ml bottle is equivalent to half a kilo of raw and pure fruits and vegetables. These Pure Nectar cold-pressed juices come in good-for-you combos such as Restore & Renew ( lemon, turmeric, celery, basil, cucumber, orange, organic cane); Alka-Boost (cucumber, pineapple, apple, spinach, kale, and organic cane); and Body Cleanser (pineapple, apple, carrot, orange, and cucumber).
If you’re not into experimenting, the Apple & Carrot and Cold Defender (pineapple, carrot, orange) are pretty good options, too!
Available at Fruit Magic Juice stalls
Hillside Café & Juice Bar Superfood Smoothies
The word “superfood” might lure you to order a glass or two but these chillers are great-tasting, too. Opt for a power and fiber-packed drink such as the Choco Banana Peanut Butter Nana but we really like the surprising Hillside Greens—a mix of spinach, moringa, mangoes, bananas, chia seeds, and coconut water. We bet you’ll want some to take home, too.
Hillside Café & Juice Bar is at 57 Mother Ignacia, Quezon City.
