Eating My City, Eating Out Meat Free, Vegan

The Newly Opened Blissful Juice Cafe Served Up A Few Vegan and Raw Heavy Hitters

Blissful

After passing by the shop day after day on my way home from work over the past few weeks, I decided to stop by Orlando’s newest vegan eatery to try a few items. I’m happy to say, that I am very glad that I did.

Walking into Blissful Juice, I was hit with a sense of comfort and serenity. Seeing the beautifully draped ceiling along with the rustic wooden tables and chairs, I just knew that it would be the perfect hang out spot when I wanted to unwind. But, the looming question had still been unanswered: would the food even be worth it? Less than 10 minutes later, while quickly downing my Choco Banana Protein Smoothie, I knew the answer would be an unequivocal YES!

The best thing about Blissful Juice is that it isn’t just your ordinary vegan eatery. I’ll admit that walking in, I was pretty sure that it would be. Here’s the thing, not only are there no animals and animal byproducts included on the menu, but the cafe also serves a number of raw meals, as well. (Just in case, raw refers to “the dietary practice of eating only uncooked, unprocessed foods,” at least this is how Wikipedia defines it.) I was a little worried when I saw this because when I tried a raw meal a few years ago, I was not a fan. But, what I had at Blissful Juice made me change my mind.

Here’s what I ordered: Beet Sliders, Raw Truffles, and, of course, the yummy Choco Banana Protein Smoothie. In this post, I’m trying something a little different: a lot less words, and larger pictures. This is a food blog, right! Below you will find pictures of each item along with a description. I hope you enjoy!

Raw Beet Sliders marinated and served with homemade cashews and cream spread. These were so good. The beets were fresh and sweet, and the filling just topped it off.

Raw Truffles, which included three flavors: walnut, date, and carob & raw cacao. Looking at these prior to trying them, I admit that I didn't have high hopes. Man, was I wrong! These were the best part of my meal.

The Choco Banana Protein Smoothie was not only amazing, but it had some pretty amazing ingredients too. Check it out: hemp seeds, raw cacao, cinnamon, spinach, carob, and agave. Winning!

The Choco Banana Protein Smoothie. I am beginning to believe that anything served in a mason jar will be exquisite.
