The folks over at DC Shakes have managed to do the impossible: blend decadence with guilt-free indulgence. Without using gimmicks, artificial sweeteners, or ingredients that devastate the delicate eco-system of Candy Land, the shop blends whole, fresh fruit, heart-healthy veggies, and a slew of nuts into thick shakes. The Green House, for example, pulls off the delicate balance of fresh pineapple, banana, and lime with hearty greens, including kale—pulled together with a helping of agave. For a drink worthy of dessert status, try the shop's namesake DC Shake. The milk-based blend delights sweet teeth with sun-dried apricots, a little chocolate, and a trifecta of walnuts, hazelnuts, and almonds.
