Some of the items we tried were:

  • Matcha Mama Smoothie that consists of matcha powder, banana, pineapple and milk
  • the Coco Greens Juice made with spinach, cucumber, celery, green apple, pineapple, lemon juice, and ginger
  • and the unforgettable Coco Bliss Bowl with coconut cream base, granola, strawberry, pineapple, banana, almond flakes, cacao nips, and a drizzle of honey and almond butter, and nutella.
