Drink of the Week: Voila! Juice's Mashugana Mango
Oakland's Voila! Juice started life as a juice cart in front of the downtown Berkeley BART station in 1978 and is now a wholesaler of fresh squeezed and flash pasteurized juices as well as juice blends. They've also got amazing smoothies, such as the coconut-infused Strawberry Paradise, which ran a close second for the title of this edition of Drink of the Week, but the Mashugana Mango won for its intense and luxurious flavor and the possibility that more people will probably like it than the Strawberry. Voila! also has a Juice Bar and Cafe at 510 Derby Avenue in Oakland, where they serve items including raw vegan food and creative smoothies that aren't bottled for stores, such as the Maccha Mint Cacao (green tea powder, mint, almond milk, agave syrup and dates).
