Here's a little ode to my favorite neighborhood haunt, Totes Juices. Totes is not only the best juice place in my Sherman Oaks neighborhood, but it's one of the best in LA altogether. Chelsea, the owner, knows what's up and she uses only 100% organic ingredients in her juices -- which some places do not! In addition to fresh pressed and seasonal juices, they offer smoothies, bowls and "Totessicles" - popsicles made of just fruit.
Their cute exterior on Ventura Blvd. -- one block east of Woodman Ave.
Brixton patiently waiting for his daily fix.
My favorite juice is "Friends with Benefits" -- a seasonal cocktail with pineapple, greens, citrus, turmeric and jalepeño. I have to have it every day.
Customize your drink but adding fresh pressed ginger and lemon juice, olive oil or cayenne.
Blueberry "Totesicle" -- super fresh with no "junk."
Another treat we can't live without is the Almond Date Shake with Chai Protein. It is like the best ice cream you've ever had.
TOTES JUICES is located at: 13569 Ventura Blvd, Sherman Oaks, CA 91423
