Nature’s Oasis’ white walls, wooden floors, and plentiful natural sunlight provide an immediate sense of earthy calm upon entering. For someone who now works from home (or from coffee shops), Nature’s Oasis checks all of my boxes for an ideal working environment… and, quite literally, an ideal smoothie!
If there are two things the west side of Cleveland severely needs more of, they are quality coffee shops and smoothie bars. A small part of me has this little seedling of a dream to open a smoothie bar and wellness space one, but when I see places like Nature’s Oasis doing it right, MOST of me just wants to kick my feet up with one of their smoothies and be a fangirl!
I absolutely LOVE how Nature’s Oasis offers you the opportunity to customize your smoothie orders. I love an awesome, refreshing, cool bev to sip on first thing in the summer mornings, mid-afternoon as a pick-me-up, and especially after a sweaty workout or yoga class! But, I will be the first to admit it—I am a smoothie snob. I’ve seen many popular smoothie places add frozen yogurt, sugary juices, or even liquids like Red Bull or coffee as the base to smoothies. Consequently, I find myself making a long-winded order full of modifications to keep my on-the-go smoothies “lookin’ like a snack” and NOT a dessert. Nature’s Oasis’ cute little checklist saves us from a predetermined smoothie destiny and gives us full creative authority to craft our desired sips. If you need some smoothie inspiration, check out three of my favorite recipes here!
Nature’s Oasis also serves up local baked goods (vegan and GF options), has a full coffee bar selection, and offers breakfast and lunch meals!
Additionally, you’ll also find a fully stocked natural goods store featuring non-toxic beauty and home products, popular snack brands, and several Cleveland brand items (from soap to saurkraut—it’s got you covered)!
