Cool Treats around Marietta Square
Everyone knows Summer in the South is brutally hot and humid, so here are few spots we like to get a treat to cool down and take a chill pill.
Sarah Jean’s Ice Cream has been on Marietta Square for well over 20 years and serve locally crafted Greenwood ice cream and also offer various coffee drinks. You must try one of their signature items…the Banana Split is huge and traditionally made with vanilla, chocolate and strawberry ice cream, (but you can DIY flavors) topped with caramel, strawberry and chocolate sauces and topped with house made whipped cream to make for the perfect Summer treat! The also serve Revolution Vegan Gelato, which is also locally sourced in Atlanta. Give in to your cravings and feel good about your choices because the Gelato is 100% plant based, organic, gluten and soy free… some of their staple flavors are Darkest Chocolate, French Press Coffee and Full Throttle Vanilla. Stop in and cool off at Sarah Jean’s, you’ll be glad you did! https://www.facebook.com/SarahJeansIceCream/

Updog Smoothies is a hidden gem just off the square and has lots of yummy cool treats that range from Smoothies, Fresh Juices/shots and Fruit/Protein Bowls that are sure to fill your belly with fresh, healthy ingredients. If you want to cool off with a Fruit Smoothie, then give “Freshness” a try made with Strawberry, raspberry, pineapple, orange and Almond milk. Green Smoothies are all the rage and we like the “Jolly Llama” prepared with Mango, pineapple, banana, kale, orange and almond milk.
If you need to hydrate, then order a freshly made juice like the “Crocodile” that has Orange, Kale, Ginger and Jalepeno for a bit of spice… or try an immune boosting shot of Ginger and Turmeric . The Power Bowls are delicious and we like this one- ARIANA’S PROTEIN BOWL Blended Spinach, Banana, Blueberries, Protein Powder, Hemp Seeds & Almond Milk – Topped with Chia Seeds, Banana, Blueberries, Spirulina & Nut Butter. http://www.updogsmoothies.com/
