Holy Kale veggie smoothie at Keva Juice in Las Cruces

Holy Kale veggie smoothie at Keva Juice in Las Cruces

There's nothing like a healthy veggie smoothie to get your day off to a good start. And it's all the better when it tastes great! I tried the Holy Kale smoothie at Keva Juice in Las Cruces and I was not disappointed. It's a blend of almond milk, kale (duh), banana, strawberry, and honey. Without the honey it would be vegan but I was glad to keep it in for a vegetarian smoothie. It's fresh and delicious.

I would say the kale flavor is somewhere between the kale smoothies at Jiggle Berry (more kale flavor) and Smoothie King (less kale flavor).


The veggie smoothies include a free supplement. I added Keva Gizer supplement to my Holy Kale smoothie. I needed the energy today!


There's plenty of yogurt and fruit juice smoothies at Keva Juice, too. Lots of seating and parking, too. And the staff are very helpful.

Keva Juice has locations around New Mexico and many other states. Check out the Keva Juice page on Facebook and the Keva Juice web site for locations and menu.

French Fare in the New Mexico Desert at Le Rendez-vous Cafe


Never one to pass on a Las Cruces dining suggestion from Melodie (be sure to read her Mochi in the Desert blog), I picked up dinner and what turned out to also be the following day's lunch at a French cafe and pastry shop. French food in the New Mexico desert? Why not? Read my full review of Le Rendez-vous Cafe in Las Cruces after the break.

Green Chile Sundae at Caliche's Frozen Custard


After my burger with green chiles at Blake's Lotaburger in Las Cruces, I was ready for some dessert. Lucky for me, my friend Melodie tipped me off to the delicious (although perhaps a little scary) green chile sundae at Caliche's. (Read her review of Caliche's here.)

I arrived and told the guy at the counter I had never tried it, but was told by a friend I would like it. He said I should try a sample first. I said, "Oh, never mind a sample, I can handle a few green chiles." Then he offered me a sample again. So I figured I better take it. This was the biggest sample I've ever had -- it was nearly the size of a small scoop!

It tasted delicious, so I ordered the two-scoop sundae. Caliche's serves frozen custard, which is softer than ice cream and creamier than soft serve.

The green chile is in a sweet sauce. It's not nearly as spicy as you might expect. It reminded me a little of butterscotch, but with some zing and a definite green chile flavor.


He suggested I add salted nuts, which I asked were which kind of nuts? But why did I ask? After all, Las Cruces is in pecan country, so these were the freshest pecans I can remember having.

So mix it all together, and this is one tasty dessert.

Caliche's calls itself the "Home of the Green Chile Sundae" and I'm glad I tried it. What a treat!

So don't let the peppers scare you off -- be sure to try the green chile sundae if you drive through Las Cruces.


Just in case, though -- there's plenty of other goodies on Caliche's menu.

On my drive to Las Cruces, I spotted a couple of burger places called Blake's, with a giant sign out front of a happy guy in a top hat. Having never heard of Blake's before, a quick check on Wikipedia told me it's a chain of burger joints in New Mexico. I'm in New Mexico for a few days, so why not try it out?

I started my first full day in Las Cruces early with a visit to The Shed. The Shed is a breakfast and lunch restaurant recommended to me by Las Cruces blogger Melodie (and she's got more than just food -- check out her Mochi in the Desert blog for what to eat and where to go in Las Cruces and New Mexico). And she was right! Read my review of my delicious breakfast at The Shed in Las Cruces after the break.
