At Cali, we’ve made it our mission to develop and create the perfect smoothie. With the growing community health scene, the demand for smoothies is off the charts and there are certainly a bunch of places offering them up; but that doesn’t necessarily mean that all of them are good for you. Certain smoothies on the market have been shown to contain up to an alarming 31 teaspoons of sugar, while others can pack even more empty kilojoules than you’ll find in a Big Mac! Yikes! So in case you were wondering how it works at Cali, we want to give you some insight into how we’ve concocted our range of super delicious smoothies to skip the nasties and spike the superfoods.
The search is over and just in time for National Nachos Day (Nov 6th) and thanks to The Minimalist Baker we have found the recipe for the BEST DAMN VEGAN NACHOS!

What makes this recipe great is that it’s not only ridiculously delicious but it’s unbelievably and undetectably vegan!

It also boasts some seriously powerful health benefits that cover everything from the function of your brain all the way down to the cells in your feet.
October has crept up on us and that means Halloween has too! Here at Cali, we know that usually means knock ‘n’ run and a lot of sugar… for the kids at least!

Well peeps, the verdict is in and we’re happy to announce it’s simply delicious! Since we loved it so much, Cali will be offering our own take on the Pumpkin Pie Smoothie for a limited time across all cafes as of this Saturday! But just in case you can’t make it in to grab one, we’ve popped the recipe down below. Enjoy!
Long gone are the days of a simple coffee order, and while full fat and straight from the cow might still be knocking around, it’s certainly gained a few competitors over the years.

So with all this choice available, we wanted to see how all these vegan mylks measure up against each other. How do they taste? What are they good for? And why should we consider them over the good ol’ cow? Here’s our take on it:
