Holly, MI – My favorite treat when I go to Holly is actually something healthy that makes me feel great.  Jacq n’ Diane’s Juice Box makes smoothies out of fresh fruits and veggies, and I love them.

The past couple of time’s I’ve gotten the “Upside Down,” which has sweet potato, carrot, orange and pineapple.  The ingredients give it a nice orange color, as well as essential nutrients daytrip_vintage-farm-house_white-dresserlike Vitamin A, Vitamin C and beta-carotene.

The smoothies are made fresh before your eyes, in a super powerful blender that quickly pulverizes the fruits and vegetables.  It’s fun to watch, and fun to enjoy in a setting full of tye-dyed tables and ever-changing art on the walls.  The owners – a mother and daughter team – are working on adding soup and chili for the winter.  They also serve salads and vegan desserts.

They are a sponsor of oc115, but even if they weren’t this is a place I would go as often as possible anyhow.  Especially now since they have expanded their offerings to having three sizes.  The small is great for a snack to enjoy there and the large is perfect to take home to sip holly-dda-ladies-night-out-adfor a long night of writing.
