Drink of the Week: Sunset Vegan Hemp Smoothie from Judahlicious

Drink some hemp as the N-Judah rolls by.

Yes, the name is cringe-worthy, but Judahlicious (3906 Judah at 44th Ave.) is the last great vegan/raw stop before you hit the Pacific Ocean, a place for freshly squeezed juices and smoothies, breakfast, and lunch entrees. Named after the neighborhood it is in, the Sunset smoothie consists of orange juice, banana, strawberry, pineapple, and raspberry, to which we like to add a shot of house-made hemp milk (for 50 cents extra) for creaminess and easier digestibility than even soy milk. Sound freaky? Don't worry, it doesn't taste like bud or even anything slightly intoxicating.

Judahlicious also offers vegan hemp ice cream, available in single packed ($3) or soft serve ($5) or in pints ($8-10): The current flavor is vanilla strawberry twist.
