Healthee-Go Green Go Healthy! #2

I woke up in a warm saturday morning and was craving for edamame for no reason. Since EU wants to start her day with a light lunch, we opted for Healthee in Kerrisdale.
This is my second visit to Healthee. To read my first review, click here.

Custom Made Wrap and Smoothie-6/6 (for wrap), 5.5/6 (for smoothie)

  • Again I forgot the prices but the wrap is about $7
  • The steps to make a salad/wrap is in my first review
  • Choose 3 fruits from: raspberry, banana, blueberry, strawberry, pineapple for the smoothie
  • They only add the three fruits you've chosen with 2%/skimmed milk for the smoothies; they do not blend in any ice cubes. You can see how they make it on the side near the cashier.
  • I chose raspberry, strawberry, and blueberry. It was really smooth and creamy. You can actually taste every fruit you've chosen.

  • Spinach, edamame, banana peppers, red onions, mandarins with ginger & sesame dressing
  • I like the strong flavour of the red onions and the banana peppers!
  • The mandarins go well with the dressing
  • They gave me the equal amount of all ingredients
  • The wrap was tightly wrapped this time
  • The sesame flavour in the dressing is stronger than the ginger flavour, but overall it's still good
  • All ingredients (except the mandarins which are the canned ones) are fresh
  • Served with two slices of freshly cut apples on the side
  • Even though the wrap is wrapped tightly, the dressing is still managed to come out

Custom Made Wrap-n/a

  • About $7
  • Romaine, tomatoes, green onions, mandarins, black beans with ginger & sesame dressing
  • I can't rate this because it is EU's wrap and I didn't taste it
  • Unlike last time, Eu's wrap was wrapped perfectly tight this time
  • Despite Eu had a hard time eating the wrap due to the dressing problem, she did enjoy her wrap
  • As you can see, there are two slices of apples on the tray

Even though they are just veggie wraps, they are surprisingly filling. Eu and I were again satisfied with Healthee's services and offers. I'm sure we will come back for their salads! :)
