3 Guilt-Free Treats to Try Now

Allison Mitchell | May 4, 2018 | Feature Features

From cocktails to dessert, indulgent treats are getting a healthy makeover at these dreamy destinations.
Head to the spa and unwind with a Miraval Harmony sipper at Monarch Beach Resort.

All Coco
Recently opened at Union Market in Tustin, this sweet spot from Thailand is the all-coconut concept’s first U.S. outpost. Order Snowballs (fresh coconuts handcarved until smooth with a straw inserted for sipping or eating) or coco ice cream (made with coconut water in flavors like chocolate and coffee almond) for a refreshing snack sans the guilt.

Midori Matcha
It’s no secret that this superfood has been trending for a while now, and the second location from Midori, located at The OC Mix, is reinvigorating the movement locally. Ceremonial-grade Japanese matcha is featured in everything from cold brew to croissants to soft serve. The magic of the tea is found in EGCG, an organic compound that boosts metabolism and burns calories while detoxifying.

Monarch Beach Resort
Happy hour gets a dose of wellness with the Miraval Harmony cocktail. The Botanist gin (featuring 22 foraged botanicals from the Island of Islay) is teamed with a custom TeaLeaves blend of organic peppermint leaves, chamomile flowers, orange blossom and allspice. Enjoy during a pampering session at DryBar and Miraval Spa or at AVEO Table + Bar.
