#1 Top Somerville Pick

Juice Union// www.thejuiceunion.com

Soon I will be a Union Square resident and I will be a regular at this cute little juice and smoothie bar. Not a place to hang due to limited seating but the perfect place to swing through to get your juice, smoothie or b’nice bowl fix. Personally, I am a smoothie and bowl gal so I can’t speak to the juices. However, the reviews are stellar for all menu items and having had two smoothies and a bowl so far, I can say that they are pushing out some crazy yummy treats. My picks thus far include the Matcha-cha smoothie, the ABC’s smoothie, and the Date Night b’nice bowl. Matcha-cha smoothie is a blend of cherries, strawberries, bananas, and almond milk and matcha powder. This one is very sweet and the cherry is prominent but delicious. The ABC’s is best for almond butter lovers. It’s a mixture of almond butter, almond milk, agave, bananas, cacao powder and cinnamon. The banana and cinnamon taste stand out but everything in this works really well. If you are looking for a super filling snack, try one of the b’nice bowls. Think acai bowl but banana puree as the base.

Date Night Bowl

I had the Date Night b’nice bowl, and I am currently dreaming about devouring this. Filled to the brim with a banana, dates, cacao powder and soy milk puree blend topped with sliced strawberries, cacao bites and cashews, this bowl is not messing around. So tasty, I can’t wait to try one of the other bowls on the menu. Juice and smoothie lovers should really check this place out.
