The GREEN Crush at Sweetberry Bowls:
We are loving that the latest health-food craze – fresh fruit bowls – is both nutritious AND delicious, and can be found popping up almost everywhere we look. Grabbing a superfood-filled tropical treat just became easier with the opening of Sweetberry Bowls, new to Glen Rock. Their Green Crush bowl with a base of blended kale, banana, pineapple and coconut milk, then topped with granola, banana, blueberries, almost butter, hemp and honey has us singing limericks all the way to our CoreFire class!
MINT Chocolate Chip Ice Cream at Van Dyk’s:
Technically speaking, Ridgewood’s Van Dyk’s isn’t new but how can you not feel spring in the air each year when Van Dyk’s opens the door after a winter of hibernating? Their fresh homemade ice cream has CoreFire instructor Jess’s vote for best in Bergen; after all she is practically their neighbor, with Mint Chocolate Chip the clear winner.
IRISH Coffee Doughnut at Montclair Bread Company:
This may be a fitness-focused blog, but after a hardcore sweat session at CoreFire, sometimes a kale salad just won’t cut it. The Irish Coffee doughnut at Montclair Bread Co. is the perfect post-workout treat. This delicious coffee glazed-doughnut filled with Bailey’s infused whipped cream makes us feel like we hit a pot of gold with every bite!
Guacamole at Villalobos:
Maybe it’s the homemade tortillas, or perhaps the Coronas (BYO of course), but we can’t stop thinking about the guacamole at Montclair’s Villalobos. With not just one or two but but FOUR different styles of guacamole from which to choose – including non-traditional options like bacon and Brussel sprouts well as peanut and pumpkin seed – there’s something for every avocado-filled craving. Why not make it your lucky day and order more than one and dig in?!
The NICK at Juice Culture:
It’s just NOT the top of our morning if we don’t swing by Juice Culture in Montclair to pick up The Nick. They call it “a tropical way to get your greens,” but we just call it delicious . Either way, the blend of coconut water, kale, celery, pineapple, bananas, dried mulberries, hemp seeds and lemon tastes like a rainbow leading to a pot of gold!
