L.A.'s raw-food fanatics — what with their radiant complexions, their sparkly eyes and their sustained energy, screamed a collective whoop of giddy hurrah when Kind Kreme opened this spring. Kind Kreme serves raw, vegan ice cream that it makes on the premises, and despite hard-core purist-steeped honey controversy, no bee flesh is actually used in the crafting of its sweet, creamy awesomeness. KK offers soft-serve vanilla and chocolate, as well as a variety of hard-packed flavors, including Goji-Kumquat, Caramel Apple and Superfood ice cream, made with E3Live (there it is again, that nutrient-dense lake sludge!), maca powder, goji berries and macadamia nuts. The morning smoothie is now rendered obsolete, as now it's easy, affordable and infinitely more fun to lick your daily dose of superhero nutrients than it is to sip 'em. Kind Kreme, a haven for wellness geeks and sweet-toothed neighborhood folk alike, and the sweet, smiling beauties behind the counter amicably offer up as many samples as their clients are inspired to suck down. 3701 Cahuenga Blvd., Hlywd.
