Here at DPJ, we’re all about sharing what we love. Beyond the stories that make us love downtown, we often come across things that catch our eye, tingle our senses or have us dancing in delight. “We Like…” turns a brief spotlight on the little treasures that make our day, with helpful links so you can share in the fun.

It’s a new year, a new me, and now I have Kaleidoscope Juice in Cityscape to get my healthy resolutions off to a perfect start.

Kaleidoscope’s fourth juice bar is nestled inside Chloe’s Corner, but the company’s vibrant colors and equally delicious offerings called to me from afar. I found out about this downtown location via Twitter a few weeks ago, as I was pondering the amount of pumpkin pie I’d eaten during the holidays. Kaleidoscope couldn’t have opened at a better time.

Every summer it seems easier to do a juice or smoothie cleanse and eat healthy, but during the school year, as stress bears down on me, fast food temporarily takes the edge off my schoolwork woes. I was gung ho for buying my own blender for my dorm and creating my own smoothies, but it became too time consuming. To me, what’s fantastic about smoothies and juices is that when they have the essential ingredients of a balanced meal, they are all you have to consume for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

On my first visit, I was in the mood for a creamy, rich and nutrient-packed smoothie to start my day. The Strawberry Warrior helped me face everything that came my way in the hours that followed. With protein, almond milk, almond butter, goji berry and banana, the vitamin-filled drink was delicious and made me curious to scope out the other options when I’m next in need of a boost.

With juice bars popping up around the country, and celebrities constantly seen holding a blended green drink, Kaleidoscope encourages one to not only be on trend, but healthy at the same time. At the beginning of each year, I’ve found it’s always best to make my body happy first, and then true style and confidence will radiate from that.
