Nestled in the tranquil Brushy Creek Neighborhood, Sips is a family owned and operated coffee shop that slakes thirsts and perks up eyelids with Fair Trade Certified and organically grown coffee drinks. Their espresso combines beans from Central America, African, and South American, topping it all with a thick, foamy crema. In sweltering temps, you can show sweat who's boss with rich, hand-blended smoothies or even a Hawaiian Shaved Ice. The latter is created by shaving off a block of purified ice, resulting in a finer texture that's better able to absorb Sips' flavorful syrups.
Every day at more than 770 locations, Jamba Juice proves that good nutrition can be both convenient and delicious. Since the beginning, the company has based its philosophy on choosing whole fruits and all-natural ingredients over artificial flavorings and preservatives. The menu is completely free of high-fructose corn syrup and artificial trans fats, and it makes additional accommodations for vegan and gluten-free diets.
Although Jamba Juice is serious about using wholesome ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate. Whole fruits and veggies can be blended into an extensive menu of great-tasting smoothies and freshly squeezed juices. But Jamba Juice’s commitment to keeping healthy eating simple informs its solid-food options, too. Customers can kick-start their morning with a steaming bowl of slow-cooked, steel-cut oatmeal, or stay energized throughout the day with six varieties of Energy Bowls: nutrient-rich blends of whole fruit, Greek yogurt or soy milk, and an assortment of dry toppings and fresh fruits.
In addition to nourishing and energizing the human body, Jamba Juice fights childhood obesity by sponsoring Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative encourages fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to getting kids active—which they can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.

Every bride dreams of a perfect wedding day, and Jhoana Moore was no exception. The centerpiece of her dream day was a cake made to her exact specifications, and she worried that no one else would be able to realize the image—and the taste—of the confection she had already baked in her imagination. What better person, she concluded, could there be to bake her dream cake than herself?
After the cake in question turned out to be a huge hit with her wedding guests, Jhoana decided to use her baking skills to help others realize the desserts of their own dreams, whether custom-designed cakes, cupcakes, or cookies. She collaborates on projects with her customers via email and phone, using their input to determine aspects such as the flavor. Designs can be sculpted out of edible fondant into three-dimensional shapes or frosted with icing that adds complex flavors and textures. Jhoana also crafts smaller portions for in-store purchases, baking cupcakes, cookies, and similarly portable sweets each day.
