Healthy Hollywood Summer Treats

We live in the age of dietary restrictions. Whether you are battling an intolerance, trying to fix your “leaky gut,” or just trying to step up your health game, it can be hard to find a dessert that is cool, sweet, and good for the entire family. Luckily for Angelenos, our city is filled with innovative foodies that are finding ways to make cool treats and healthy eats that actually taste good!

This past week I had a few friends in town who have some pretty crazy dietary restrictions. Between my Celiac, her lactose intolerance / FODMAP, and his SIBO diet, it was hard to find something we could all enjoy together. Cut to an unexpected find as we were grabbing some green juice at Pressed Juicery, and thanks to the lovely team at this pop-up stand at The Grove that introduced us to their newest treat, the Freeze.

Pressed Juicery

Pressed Juicery works hard to get out wholesome and healthy products. This Freeze they now offer? 100% plant based soft serve. Don’t let the words soft serve trip you up. It’s definitely dairy free! The base is simple and made with coconut oil, cacao, honey. Nothing else! They have also recently added two more flavors, so you can not only get your chocolate and vanilla fix, but also get adventurous with a mango turmeric, or creamy coconut. Every flavor is made naturally, with nothing artificial. (You can check out the ingredient list for each flavor here: https://www.pressedjuicery.com/tag/freeze​ )

If you are thinking it’s too good to be true…don’t.  I made it my mission to personally test every flavor for you – and they don’t disappoint. I am not going to lie, without dairy it is not quite as creamy as ice cream – it’s somewhere between a sorbet and custard consistency – but it won’t interfere with how much you enjoy it. As far as health-food sweet treats go, the Pressed Juicery Freeze gets an A.

You can find the Freeze at any of their locations around L.A. The Grove is my favorite spot with a pop-up storefront between the Nike Store and the fountain (just across from Athletica). Enjoy your healthy Hollywood summer treats!
