Break out the Wellies to wade through the wave of juice that will soon sweep through Jamaica Plain. As the neighborhood awaits the arrival of Juicygreens, a juice shop and cafe, plans for another health-focused shop have surfaced: Carrot Flower is slated to open at 703 Centre St. with smoothies, soups, nut milks, and more, according to Jamaica Plain News.
Along with the hallmark fresh juices, Carrot Flower will offer a variety of vegan smoothies made with fruits and vegetables; smoothie bowls; overnight oats; hummus and veggies; and toasts topped with avocado, nut butter, or hummus. Founder Audrey White, who lives in Jamaica Plain, will focus on providing low-sugar options in her shop, according to the Carrot Flower website. White is opening the shop with Cheri Clarkin, an alum of Myers + Chang and Cunard Tavern.
White, a type 1 diabetic, started making smoothies and juices in 2007 and has compiled recipes to use in her own juice shop. She has started sharing some previews on an Instagram page, which shows a smoothie bowl topped with seeds and nuts, along with a hot coconut cacao beverage made with coconut milk, cacao powder, red reishi mushroom powder, coconut oil, cinnamon, and stevia. Several items in the shop will be vegan, and many will be gluten-free. Carrot Flower will also serve coffee and tea, along with health shots like wheatgrass and turmeric with ginger.
Carrot Flower could open in early spring 2018, per Jamaica Plain News.
