We’re calling it, summer has arrived on the Gold Coast and it comes in the form of balmy, sun-soaked beach days, sunset swims and bare feet on hot footpaths. All this heat though calls for cold delicious treats to take the edge off and we’ve found exactly that, care of Cooly’s new juice bar Liquid Dreams.
Is there anything better than a fresh, cold juice or smoothie after a scorching day in the sun? We think not and it seems Brooke and Jeffy, the team behind the newbie agree.
They opened Liquid Dreams recently, just a few steps from Rainbow Bay and it’s the perfect spot for some post-sunbaking sips.
The space is on Ward Street with glimpses of the ocean from the front and mouthwatering fruit smells within.
It’s been decked out in white, light wood and all of the prettiest pastels and it’s the perfect addition to the beachside suburb. We love.
The menu consists of all the refreshing treats including over 17 juices, plenty of smoothies and of course, bowls stacked with goodness too.
In terms of smoothies, they’re all amazing but we’re big fans of the Signature Green Smoothie with banana, avocado, spinach, dates, cinnamon, organic coconut milk and clean protein in exotic vanilla. Healthy and delicious.
Juice-wise ditto to all but the orange, pineapple, apple, lemon and ginger was a winner as was the beetroot, carrot, pineapple, apple, lemon and ginger. So refreshing and so good for you.
The team also do a celery juice which is the perfect cleansing sip, it promotes digestion, detoxifies and helps to maintain a healthy gut. Which is obviously what we all need right now. Get involved in one of those every single day and you’ll be laughing.
If it’s a bowl you’re after (good choice) the Berry Açai Bowl is epic with organic açai, paleo fuel granola, berry pulp, mixed berries and coconut flakes and the Mango Bowl is organic mango blended with pineapple, banana and organic coconut water topped with coconut flakes, blueberries and banana. SO GOOD.
Everything used within Liquid Dreams is of the highest quality so you can sure you’re getting plenty of nutrients as well as tastiness AND a little cool down.
The guys have also just launched a three day juice cleanse for $99 so you can really amp yourself up for summer. How good is bikini season.
So, if you’re a big fan of cold, delicious things (same) Liquid Dreams is where it’s at.
Bring on all of the balmy, juice-filled beach days.
