I was in Norfolk, Virginia for an extended time and found Fruitive, a juice bar located in Virginia Beach, within the first hour of my arrival. Even though Virginia Beach was a little bit out of the way, Fruitive was the only juice bar in the area at the time…so I obviously went there at least 5 days a week for the entire 3 months of my stay!
Fruitive is a completely plant-based establishment that uses the “organic or better” philosophy for their produce. I LOVE the menu here because it not only has the typical juice bar items (smoothies, acai bowls, juices), but also a wide range of food (salads, wraps, soups). I could easily eat breakfast, lunch, AND dinner here…oh wait, I’ve done that before.
Fruitive’s promise: “If we can’t source an ingredient from one of our approved sources, then we won’t be serving it at all. Every piece of produce that passes our counter, whether in a salad, wrap or juice, has been scrutinized.”
What do I get?
- “PB no J” bowl
- “Southwest Romaine” wrap (in a collard wrap)
- “Harvest” steamer
- “Hail to the Kale” salad
I love everything about Fruitive, but I must say that their “PB no J” bowl is one of my all-time favorite acai bowls. Although there are now some great juice and smoothie bars located closer to Norfolk, I still made the drive to Virginia Beach when I was in the area recently. Fruitive is that good!
