After leaving spin at YYC Cycle I noticed this cute little juice bar cafe next door, Wild and Raw, and I had to try it out. They have a variety of items to choose from, from teas/coffees, juices, smoothies, and a few food options. Its in a great location, in the heart of Kensington and the employees were friendly and informative for a first timer like me.

I tried the pumpkin protein parfait and a mushroom tea. The parfait was the perfect combination of pumpkin, fresh, and tasty with the added dark chocolate chips and shredded coconut on top. The super food is all natural with added SunWarrior Vegan protein; gluten-free and vegan. It was delicious, I definitely want to try the other food options.



The Chaga mushroom tea was a different story. It did not taste like mushrooms but it did not taste good either. It tasted like a weird combination of spices that left a very horrible after taste. The teas are very good for you, from stress relief to energy enhancing, depending on the type of mushroom. And normally I am all for things that are good for you, but sometimes I can’t choke down health drinks for the benefits. I will have to try a juice next time.


Check on my review on Zomato¬†and Wild and Raw’s website.
