My Passion Project: Jooce Bar

I am STOKED to share with you that over the past six months I have been quietly working with my family on a project that I am so passionate about — a juice bar in Australia’s tropical paradise of Palm Cove!

Jooce Bar: cold-pressed juices, smoothies and raw vegan treats with a tropical FNQ twist.

The “Miracle Tree” Superfood Smoothie Bowl at Jooce Bar


I just returned to LA after a month in Palm Cove where I was in the most creatively aligned zone I’ve ever felt in my life. I surprised myself every single day. Combining all I have learned over the years in nutrition, marketing, decorating, artwork, relationships, customer service, business management, everything and anything – it’s all rolled into one here at Jooce Bar.

And best of all, it’s a project involving my entire family, Angel included. I couldn’t be more proud. Particularly of my brother who is the most driven person I know. Jooce Bar is located inside Jack & Shanan’s, my brother’s restaurant and gelateria, fittingly named after my two beautiful nephews.

The Jooce Bar transformation


The above images are the before and after shots of Jooce Bar’s transformation within just a few weeks. The picture on there right is still a work in progress — the baskets under the palm tree will be loaded with fresh, locally grown coconuts, and the shelves will be loaded with fresh produce ready for juicing.

Here is a look around all of Jack & Shanan’s on one of our final days getting everything together for opening:


I’m ecstatic! More details to come 🙂
