Life’n One – Jumeirah 1

Life’n  One in Jumeirah is more than just a café. In addition to the Gluten free, sugar free, soy free and GMO-free dishes they serve, they also offer yoga classes and events that will help you find a bit of happiness and positive energy in your everyday life. Life’n One is an urban retreat, a hidden oasis in Dubai, where you can take time for yourself to relax, rejuvenate, and find balance.
Life’n One is also the perfect place to catch up with close friends. They have a garden setting alfresco dining for those who wants to feel the fresh breeze (if the weather permits). They also have a tent with air conditioning for those who feel uncomfortable sitting outside.
After a long hot walk on the beach, we decided to refresh ourselves at Life’n One’s tent. We just ate so we ordered only drinks to refresh our dehydrated bodies.
Pumpkin Spiced Latte- was made famous by the mermaid coffee shop. I have always thought of this drink as heavy and sweet. Life’n One’s Pumpkin Spiced Latte is the opposite. It’s light and just has the right amount of sweetness.  The lightness of the drink might be because they did not use full fat milk. My best guess is they used almond milk because you can taste a hint of sweetness, nuttiness and vanilla flavor. It blended perfectly with the pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice. It was hot outside, but drinking the Pumpkin Spiced Latte was not a bad idea at all.

Chocolate and Beyond- is marinated dates with cardamom, ginger and saffron, which is then blended with hazelnuts, cacao and coconut milk for an extra energy kick for the day. I was expecting this to be more of a nutty flavor, but it tasted like Masala Chai with cacao. It is like a fusion of Indian Tea and American Hot Chocolate. The consistency is thick that it made feel like I had another brunch. It is an acquired taste for me, but an interesting combination.

Tropical Ashwaganda – has coconut meat, mango, passion fruit, dates, almond milk, ashwagandha topped with homemade granola. Ashwagandha, one of the most powerful herbs in Ayurvedic healing, has been used since ancient times for a wide variety of conditions. It is most well-known for its restorative and rejuvenating benefits.  It is said to lower blood sugar levels, fight inflammation and tumor growth, reduce cortisol levels “stress hormones”, boost testosterone and fertility for men, increase muscle mass and strength, lower cholesterol and triglycerides, improve brain function and memory. Ashwaganda is a mix of sweet and sour with a texture of tomato when fresh same as the passion fruit. Mixing it with mango and dates will balance the tart and pungent flavors. Almond milk added a nutty and mild flavor of milk. Coconut meat made this drink heavy that it feels like it has a banana. Granola added texture and sweetness to every spoonful I put in my mouth. Another drink that is like a complete meal.
I am rating Life’n One 4/5.
