Heart Healthy Food We Love

You don’t always have to indulge…check out these food vendors who offer a healthy and refreshing alternative to festival food.

We’re happy to welcome Banan to Honolulu Night Market this month! New to the food truck scene, they’ve created a “banana soft serve” that’s dairy-free and made from 100% local bananas. The base remains the same, but the flavors vary from pineapple coconut to ginger mint. Our Honolulu Night Market foodie tip: try the Banan Bowl that’s topped with fresh fruit, puffed quinoa, shredded coconut and honey!

Organika offers kefir water in a variety of flavors like heart-healthy Olena and pitaya. The probiotic drink is great for your health as it’s loaded with valuable enzymes, easily digestible sugars, beneficial acids, vitamins and minerals.

Of course, we didn’t forget about LEMONADE! Enjoy the fresh flavors from Waimanalo Country Farms, who will be offering a Raspberry lemonade in addition to their regular line-up of strawberry, li hing mui and others.
