After a lifetime of playing the field, we finally see the merit of monogamy.
The cool, frothy concoctions at Main Squeeze, the new Santa Monica juice bar, have won our undying devotion. Jonathan Trivas and Guru Thapar devised the pocket-size space to be everything most SoCal juiceries aren’t (unpretentious, reasonably priced).

After all, why go out for a $12 smoothie when you’ve got the almond milk and cacoa nibs at home?

Organic agave nectar
1. Pour milk into a high-speed blender (preferably a Vitamix).
2. Add banana, cacao powder and nibs, and almond butter. Top with cinnamon.
