Lebanon has been turning up their fruit cocktails on ten with mouthwatering additions of thick smoothies, fresh almonds, honey, ground pistachios, and ashta, a unique clotted cream that’s got the right amount of sweetness. Considered a street food staple for the Lebanese, a one of a kind shop in Los Angeles has captured this refreshing treat and expanded on its delectable possibilities.
Fruzion, with two locations in Chatsworth and Glendale, CA, is serving up Lebanese fruit cocktails in a variety of iterations, whether they be in a fruity smoothie form or paired up with savory crepes filled with gooey Nutella. The medley of fresh fruits in this Lebanese favorite is a welcome respite from the typically sweet and overly sugary desserts and snacks available to Americans.
Our very own Marc Kharrat took an understandably deep dive headfirst into these delightful fruit cocktails and broke down the juicy deets on what exactly makes them a fresh choice for snacking in the video above.
