There’s little doubt that Blend, the brand new juice bar in Mt. Pleasant, takes its “putting the fresh in refreshing” slogan seriously: When I recently rang up the store to learn more about its plans, my call was politely declined by a staffer apparently busy chopping vegetables.
“We’re in the middle of prep,” he told me after consulting with the owner.
According to its online menu, Blend is serving a wide range of juices and smoothies. Although customers are given the option to assemble their own juice combinations, there are eight “signature juices” on offer, including a pair of juices spiked with cayenne and jalapeno peppers.
The signature smoothies have a similarly savory bent: The coconut water-based “Solar Power” features avocado, kale, cilantro and hemp hearts. There’s also a smoothie of oatmeal, dates, raisin, cinnamon and banana, for eaters who like to sip breakfast through a straw.
Prices range from $6.95-$8.95.
Blend is located at 320-E W. Coleman Blvd. For additional information, visit theblendco.com. (You could also call 884-6161, but perhaps not during prep time.)
