Because once a project gets too big you're bound to lose control (couldn't keep your client out of MacGruber, could you, Val Kilmer's agent?), the co-founder of Daily Juice is retooling the menus of his first two locations (Barton Springs & Lake Austin) and relaunching them as JuiceLand, thus allowing the Austin-iconic Daily Juice concept to sprout franchising wings while still firmly guiding the original vision.
New blended action includes "next-level" smoothies like the 12th Planet, a mix of fruits (pineapple, papaya, blueberry, cherry), habanero, and volcanically grown ormus supergreens; thick dessert shakes like the Percolator (Kohana coffee, cacao, rice milk, banana, cinnamon); and juices like the carrot/ turmeric/ coconut/ ginger/ lime/ cayenne/ beet Tree of Life, which has more ingredients than that film had dialogue.
They've also added a staff herbalist, who's concocted a line of tonics for what ails ye, from the calming, 18-ingred Tranquilo -- with the sedative Valerian! -- to the aphrodisiac, 22-ingred Secret Lover, with maca, durian, dates, and...19 other things; as well as shots including the energy-boosting Big Dada (yerba maté concentrate, goji, b12), the immuno-raising Medicine Man (lemon, ginger, garlic, jalapeno, cilantro, beet, turmeric, oregano, habanero), and the bone-strengthening Heavy Metal Parking Lot, with lots of magnetic sulfate minerals, but oddly no Anthrax.
Although the original Daily Juice drinks are no longer on the menu, JuiceLand is still happy to make customers old favorites now destined to become nationwide sensations -- because some people will never leave their wingman, no matter how big he gets.
