After walking by the “opening soon” sign for Naturewell many a time over the past few months, the juice bar and bulk good shops has finally opened. Craving a smoothie but finding I was out of frozen fruit, the pup and I decided to check the new place out.
I had a berry smoothie which was great but, let’s face it, it’s pretty much impossible to make a bad smoothie. They use regular or vegan ice cream as the smoothie base, but as I am detoxing, I just asked if they could mix it with apple juice and they happily obliged. At $6.50 for 32 oz (mine pictured here was 16 oz.) I will probably just keep making smoothies at home for a fraction of the cost, but I am excited to have a bulk good shop so close to home.
Aside from the “wellness bar” where one can get smoothies or custom made juices made from a menu of fruits and veggies, the shop has a decent selection of bulk grains, beans, dried fruit, cereal, and snacks. They also sell some prepackaged vegan goodies like vegan ice cream bars and those expensive tortilla chips they sell at M Cafe. Here is their juice menu:
Naturewell also has a cozy little nook with fluffy white pillows as well as tables outside, so you can stop and enjoy your buys in comfort. I for one am pretty excited about this place. You may notice that this menu includes a type which is one of my biggest pet peeves: spelling Silver Lake as one word. Don’t ask me why this bugs me so. It just does. It’s two words people!!! Ok, I’m starting to sound bananas…
Naturewell is basically a smaller version of Naturemart with a juice bar, so go knock back a wheat grass shot and get some groceries at the same time. It’s also a couple doors down from Flore, so maybe you can cap it all of with a tasty vegan dessert!
