If you’re looking for the perfect post-workout meal, you won’t want to miss the avocado herb toast at Fruitive.
Fruitive, located by City Center, is a 100 percent plant-based juice bar that uses organic ingredients from local farmers to craft their health-conscious meals and signature juices.
The scrumptious avocado herb toast ($6.95) smells as amazing as it tastes – pesto and fresh oregano make Fruitive’s version tastier than other avocado toasts. The lightly toasted flax and spelt bread has warm and garlicky basil pesto mayo spread on it and topped with, of course, sliced avocado.
To make the toast a meal, pair it with The Immunity ($6.50) juice. The powerful green apple, lemon, ginger and cayenne juice felt like it gave my immune system a jolt with its spicy acidity. For a breakfast coffee replacement, the Brazil Nut Milk ($6) adds a smooth, nutty taste with alkaline water, brazil nuts, dates and sea salt.
The sleek establishment offers a prime people-watching spot through a long window facing 11th Street. You can snag a view by sitting in one of the several swivel seats along the wooden counter.
Pop and indie music, reminiscent of a SoulCycle playlist, add an upbeat tempo to the atmosphere, making you feel like you never left your workout.
And best of all — the toast is a part of the all-day breakfast menu to satisfy your craving for a healthy meal, no matter what time of day it is.
