Happy Blender Fresh Juice Vegan Bar Athens, Greece
I am always on the lookout for healthy restaurants in Athens, so when I discovered Happy Blender, I had to check them out. The cute vegan juice bar sports bubblegum pink walls with painted fauna and fun woven furniture. It is like walking into a healthy tropics! Happy Blender makes eating healthy easy with its array of smoothies and acai bowls. I was so enthralled with their food menu, that I ended up being too full to try any of their smoothies.
The Healthy Restaurant in Athens, Greece
There were so many gluten-free eats and vegetarian dishes to choose from. I could not help myself! So, I decided to just dive right in. The Açai Ocean Bowl is a fitting name for this bowl as it is made with blue spirulina. Artfully arranged on top are banana coins, goof berries, coconut flakes, granola and a drizzle of honey.
For something more hearty, the “Burger” will satisfy those hunger pangs. Between the beetroot bread is quinoa, red beans, a burger patty, and vegan mayonnaise. Optional additions include lettuce, onions, purple sauerkraut and avocado mousse.
Perhaps a little basic of me, but I just cannot help myself when I see an avocado toast on the menu. The gluten-free bread was not too dry. Moreover, the creamy avocado mousse with vegan greek feta and cherry tomatoes gave it a great texture balance. Another favourite was the colourful organic quinoa salad which had avocado and pineapple fanned on top and finished with a protein-rich peanut butter dressing. Needless to say, we were happy like a blender (terrible attempt at a pun, but just go with it haha).
Just because Happy Blender is one of the healthy restaurants in Athens specializing in healthy, gluten-free eats, does not mean they do not know how to have fun. The case next to the smoothie bar is filled with delectable dessert bars all of which are raw, organic, gluten- and sugar-free! There was a peanut butter flapjacks-inspired bar, but what really caught my eye was the chocolate raspberry.
I was not kidding when I said that I might have gone a bit overboard at Happy Blender. My partner and I were thoroughly stuffed to the brim with healthy gluten-free eats. When a place uses fresh whole ingredients, the food will always be delicious. Simple is best!
