Juice Served Here Offers Food, including Coco Yogurt

Fro-yo girl here. I’ve tried Juice Served Here before. Their “never conventional” cold-pressed juices and beverages are more creative than the other juice places. I like how they blend nut milk with green juice to create Green Milk. They also use unusual ingredients like lucuma, maca, charcoal, clay, rose oil, colloidal gold and pearl powder.

Recently I walked by and saw a poster for Coco Yogurt in the window. Juice Served Here collaborated with The Springs of DTLA to introduce new plant based foods menu that includes overnight oats, chia pudding, salads, sandwiches and bowls. Most items are vegan, mostly organic and and sometimes gluten free. They even have new cleanses that include food and juice.

The Coco Yogurt was kept in a fridge by the door, along with their other packaged grab and go foods. It was $7 something.

* Coco Yogurt: This is a dairy-free, vegan yogurt with probiotics made with young Thai coconut meat, fresh coconut milk, vegan probiotics, blueberries, maple syrup, agave, rolled oats, 7 spice, grapeseed oil, ginger and freeze dried pineapple. The 7 spice granola is in a separate compartment perched on top. The coco yogurt is covered in a blueberry puree. I really liked the granola. The intriguing 7 spice blend reminded me of Chinese five spice. The oats were in big clusters, soft but crunchy in different areas. The blueberry puree wasn’t too sweet. The yogurt was quite creamy, though not as rich or thick as Greek yogurt. It also wasn’t tangy. The coconut flavor wasn’t overpowering or too strong. I’d call it mild. A cup of yogurt is filling and satisfying. I recommend keeping the granola on top rather than mixing it into the yogurt.

I’m hoping to go to The Springs soon to try more of their healthy, plant-based food.

You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
