Cocotini, Sun & Soil Juice Company
Is there anything tahini doesn’t make better? Answer: No. Exhibit A: the Cocotini smoothie from Sun & Soil Juice Company ($10). Composed of cashew milk, banana, dates, tahini, cocoa, cardamom and “Himalayan salt,” this drink is thick and chocolate-y like a run-of-the-mill Frosty, but has a sophisticated undertone of salinity and nutty sesame flavor, and despite the dates is only lightly sweet. It might cost twice as much as Wendy’s, but it has about 300 fewer calories, and hey, the salt came all the way from Pakistan and that ain’t cheap. 1912 P Street, sunandsoiljuice.com.
