awesome of the week: Portland Smoothie Co. and downtown vegan carts

let’s get it out of the way that I’ve yet to have a smoothie. this isn’t an attempt at a poignant review, it’s a shout out to a really fantastic, fresh juice from Portland’s newest all vegan cart, The Portland Smoothie Company.

what I did try is their daily fresh juice, and I swear, it put a little carrot and ginger-y buzz into my step. I think I started skipping halfway through my colorful juice.

According to the cart owner, the juice is going to stay the same daily, but the smoothies will be mixing it up.  As I mentioned earlier, I haven’t had one…yet.!!..but I really like the sound of various non-dairy milks for blending (and no ice! bad ice! bad!), including coconut!

holla at ya juice

Portland Smoothie Co.

holla at the veg-cart take over on this block alone!

Sonny Bowl – one of 3 carts I can think of where you can get your BBQ Soy Curl craving hooked up, Bloop! (same cart – I never knew my life was missing vegan oatmeal from a cart, but it clearly is), the wonder that is D.C. Veg.,  and the very vegan friendly, and amazingly priced, Just Thai. oh, and around the corner – Spud Locker, home of massive, topped potatoes from one of the coolest looking carts I’ve seen yet.

SW 3rd

Feeling All American Vegan or what? Vegan Burger and Peanut Butter Cup from D.C. Vegetarian. Holy vegan condiments, of whoa!

DC Veg

Side platter from Homegrown Smoker – the BBQ beans, greens and mac are where it’s at! HoGroSmo has triumphantly returned downtown to the PSU area, check it out!


All Hands on Deck Meal from Spud Locker

I could go for some juice about now….

Like This!


  1. I had no idea Spud Locker did meals like that…looks so good!

    I love working downtown, and I love being vegan…had Bloop oatmeal for breakfast and a Koi Fusion kimchi tofu burrito for lunch today. ❤ Thanks for the post!

  2. It was your post that made me want to try Spud Locker!

    But it looks like they’re closed, as of last week? I tried to stop by Friday to squeeze in a try, but the cart is for rent on Craigslist, and they had a post a week ago that they would be open through the end of the (last) week.

    I am DIGGING the vegan takeover, though. And she makes a mad smoothie, the smoothie lady does! Marionberry mango is an alarmingly good combination.

Don't be shy...have something to share?
