Team members working behind the juice bar in Whole Foods Market in Ft. Lauderdale can make kale taste delicious.
Smooth and light, yet filling, the Kalicious smoothie somehow manages to balance the leafy vegetable with apples, bananas and lemon in perfect harmony. Not one fruit or vegetable overpowers the others.
“It’s hearty, clean, uplifting, yet it nourishes,” Liz Fellows said as she took a sip of her Kalicious and grabbed her groceries.
In fact, when we asked people what Kalicious tastes like, no one could come up with one definitive answer.
“It’s on the sweet side, but earthy,” another customer said at the checkout register.
“I taste a little spice to it,” Joyce Virga said, referring to the apple and lemon in the drink. “It just tastes good. I drink it all the time.” She bought the drink in the morning to kick-start her day.
Other people drink Kalicious to maintain their energy level and recharge. Vasilios “Billy” Kourkoumelis likes to add his own spin to the drink. He requested a shot of protein and mango in his Kalicious. “I drink it after working out. It’s my daily green intake,” he said.
Another customer takes a shot of ginger and then drinks Kalicious as a chaser. Not feeling that adventurous? The juice bar also makes the basics, such as orange or carrot juice. And yes, the carrot juice tastes carrolicious.
No matter what you choose to drink, the team members at the juice bar know how to keep us coming back for more.
