As someone who eats a mostly organic diet, I was curious to learn more about this place.  I first got to try them with the gift certificate that I won from the Vero Vine Make a Plate contest.  The more I visit this place, the more I learn about them and I’m impressed with what they are doing here and what they are offering.  They are not only a juice and smoothie bar, but they offer some food items as well.  LOV Juice has been in business locally for 3 years now, and just recently moved to a new location in Miracle Mile Plaza next to Fresh Market to better serve their customers.  Lets dive right in and see what I had to eat!

Vegan Taco Salad

Vegan Taco Salad – ($8.00) – I’m a huge fan of Mexican food, so I decided to give this salad a try.   The greens are cabbage, the meat is made from walnuts, sun-dried tomatoes, and a Mexican spice blend.  The sour cream and nacho cheese sauces are cashew based.  I was simply blown away with how good this salad was.  It was bold, crunchy, and the sauces were amazing, so full of flavor!  If you think eating healthy is bland, LOV Juice will definitely change your mind.  The taco “meat” had a meat like texture and had a nice mild southwest flavor to it.  The salsa had a tiny bit of heat to it, not too much for the average person, and the sour cream and nacho cheese sauces were cool and very fresh tasting.  I’m impressed!

12oz. Acai Banana Walnut Smoothie – ($8.00) – I asked what was one of their most popular smoothie was and ordered it.  This smoothie contains acai berries, banana, walnuts, almond mylk, and apple juice.  It was slightly sweet from the bananas and apple juice, the acai berry gives it the purple color, and the creaminess comes from their in house made almond mylk.  While it had walnuts in it, I did not get much of a nutty flavor, but I do think it added some texture to it.  I see why this is one of their most popular smoothies, it was very good!

Raw Avocado Key Lime Cheesecake

Raw Avocado Key Lime Cheesecake – ($4.00) – I don’t normally order dessert, but this looked interesting.  Don’t let the green color fool you, it does not taste green at all.  You can’t even discern the avocado in it either other than the color.  It was super smooth, very creamy and had a bold key lime flavor to it.  The crust was made from almonds, dates and the coconut and was nice and sweet.  I think this was my favorite part of the meal, so I’m glad I did not skip dessert this time!

In Conclusion:

I was really surprised by my experience at LOVJuice.  I thought they were pretty much just a juice and smoothie bar, but they turned out to be so much more.  I’m impressed with their offerings and the flavors I experienced during my visit.  If eating healthy is important to you, then I suggest you give these folks a try and see for yourself how good their products really are!
