The Juice Hive recently won an award at the Good Food Awards in San Francisco. The Bluffton-based healthy eatery, known for its cold-pressed juices, smoothies and all-natural raw foods, earned the national award for its Magic Memory Ball. The snack was created by owner and chef Leslie Rohland, who feels eating it could enhance mental function and improve memory. The ball is made with a variety of herbal infusions and organic fruits and nuts from Beaufort’s Three Sisters Farm, which provides organic products for many local eateries. The Juice Hive’s Berry Bluffton Fruit Leather was also a finalist to win an award. The Cottage Café, Bakery & Tea Room also had the honor of being recognized as a finalist for its Curried Pickled Red Okra. Each year the national Good Food Awards celebrate people throughout the country who make food respectful of the environment and connected to communities and cultural traditions. It is the second consecutive year The Juice Hive has been recognized. Winners were selected in 15 categories, with 199 winners chosen from more than 30 states.
