Basik may be relatively new to the Bay Area—owner Derek Paulson set up shop in early 2015—but it already boasts a cult following in Hawaii. The original Kailua-Kona location has been churning out dairy-free, plant-based drinks and snacks since 2010. (In a nod to its roots, “Aloha” and “Wake Up and Live” are printed across the walls.) The smoothies are simple and sweet, blended from fruit, juice, honey, greens and plant-based milks. Try the Crunch, an acai-strawberry-banana mix that’s topped with a scoop of granola, or the refreshing Mayan Mint, a concoction of acai, banana, almond butter, mint, hemp milk and cacao nibs.
