Of all the places I’ve traveled this contract St. Thomas is the winning port. My heart lives here, It’s a little bit of home on an island. One of my favorite place's to visit is Yacht Haven Grande and this little smoothie bar called Lilika Juice Bar not too far from the cruise ships. Now everyone raves about Barefoot Buddha, it’s a great place to get food but it’s always so busy, packed, wall to wall busy. I've spent a lot of money in their one of a kind boutique. To be outside with a healthy drink in hand next to the water, that's my kind of afternoon.
Any place near yachts is classy to begin with. I feel at home when I run into the National Marine office while seeing yachts I’m familiar with and under the shade in at a place that makes green drinks like I make at home.
The menu has so many options and they even ask your option of a base (water, almond milk, coconut milk etc). I always get half almond milk and water. The last time I was here I had two green drinks and felt so fresh. St. Thomas is one of those ports where I'm waiting at the gangway to be the first one off the ship.
In a previous blog called, How I Broke The Rules For A Green Smoothie, I shared that staying healthy and making health choices on a ship sometimes require breaking a few rules.
The first thing I look for when I’m off the ship is a place where I can add boosters like chia seeds, dates, bee pollen and flax seeds. Ingredients that most people might roll their eyes at but then fall on the floor when I tell them my age.
If you are in St. Thomas stop by Lilika in Yacht Haven Grand and pick up one of their green drinks. You will feel energized, accomplished and completely satisfied.
Who wouldn't want to hang out here?
