Strawberry sunrise & a random book about sand!

The other weekend, my friends and I got together for our annual New Years celebration dinner. After dinner, we chilled at Banán on University Ave., across the University of Hawaii at Mānoa (UHM).We went to their food truck location at 3212 Monsarrat Ave. in Kapahulu earlier last year, which I wrote a posting about: It’s time for Açai reviews!

We really liked their physical location. It had a nice, relaxing vibe. They even had random books, like the one about sand- haha!

I ordered a Strawberry Sunrise smoothie, which consisted of: strawberries, bananas, papayas, and almond milk. It was very light and tasty. I loved it! I’m so glad there was almond milk in this drink, since I’m lactose.

It’s time for Açai reviews!

Last month, I had a craving for açai bowls. I’ve tried the açai sorbet at Nordstrom, and just added honey and granola (see blog posting titled “Sunday Funday with friends.”). It was really good!

I also tried açai bowls from Salted Lemon and Banán.


From Salted Lemon. I really enjoyed this. What a traditional açai bowl is to me!

That same day, my friends and I tried Banán in Kapahulu. This location is a truck stand.

  • Stairway to Heaven (on the left) includes: greens banáns (soft serve), granola, saved coconut, papaya, pineapple, bananas, and honey.
  • The Amazon (on the right) includes: açai banán (soft serve), granola, quinoa, bananas, strawberries, and honey.

We enjoyed both! I especially enjoyed The Amazon. All of their soft serves have a banana taste to them! Super yummy!
