Sip is a juice and smoothie van located on NE Alberta St. in Portland, Oregon. It's a 100% vegan place! Aaron is one of the guys running this location. At the time I went in mid-June, it was only their third week on the block.

There are practically endless combinations here. If you don't see an item on the menu that really strikes you, customize a drink, and they'll make it happen. Since this panda isn't picky, I asked Aaron what one of the more popular juices is. He quickly recommended the "Hawthorne," a juice blend of apple, carrot, parsley, lemon, and ginger.

This was a delicious, refreshing, and healthy option, a stark contrast from my usual gluttonous fat-laden food dishes I consume. The zip of the parsley, lemon, and ginger tended to upstage the sweetness of the apple and carrot, but that didn't stop me from finishing this 12 oz. beverage ($4.50) in about 30 seconds. Pandas are thirsty, too!

Scanning the rest of the menu, the "Get Up" also sounds excellent (pineapple, orange, carrot, and apple). With summer rolling around, I could easily come back for more. I just hesitate slightly, since I feel the prices are a bit steep. But hey, can't really beat a healthy choice during the day! 7/10
