I stopped with my family to get smoothies at Banana Joe's. We had heard of the place and wanted to try them. We each got a smoothie and enjoyed them. There are only two sizes. You might be tempted to get a small, since they run $4.50 and the larger size is $8.50 if I remember right. But don't. Their... More

Intresting little place. A small cup of smoothie is $4.50 and is not so good. Frozen banana is about the same and is small also, it is so so.

Definitely worth a stop to try. I was there at the end if the day and they were out of the banana frosty, but had pineapple. It was very tasty. The lady who was working was not the friendliest, but maybe she gets tired of tourists.

It's worth the drive to Kilauea for Banana Joe's. Farmers market in the adjacent parking lot on weekends.

We have visited Banana Joe's each time we visit Kauai, over the 20 years. The smoothies and frosties are made from fresh local frozen pineapple, papaya, banana, sometimes an individual flavor available at other times a combination. Banana Joe's also sell a small selection of locally grown fruits and veggies, honey, and tempting snacks.

Out in the country between Kapaa and Princeville but not hard to find. Very fresh fruits and vegetables! Have Joe make you a smoothie. They're delicious! Very friendly! We're going back!

FYI, a smoothie is a fruit juice blend and a frosty has a more ice-cream consistency but with fresh fruit. They have a set order of which fruits are used and it appears to change weekly. We ordered one of each to share and the banana & pineapple frosty was amazing. I love pineapple and the ice cream like consistency... More

This place is right next door to the mini-golf. They have a good assortment of fresh fruit some of which is pre-cut and chilled. The mango was amazing! We all got the banana-pineapple frostie which is basically frozen banana and pineapple put through a grinder. To me the two flavors pretty much cancelled each other out making it not as... More

This was one of the "had to go" places we heard of and we weren't dissapointed. It's a cute little fruit stand right off the side of the road off the main highway just before the turn to Kilauea if heading south from Princeville. They have really good smoothies and frosties in pineapple, banana and mixed flavors (the frosties are... More

This is a funky little place right on the highway. We got the Frosty-- frozen, mashed fruit which makes a dairy free "ice cream." So good! We also picked up a gigantic, perfectly ripe avocado for guacamole. I regret not picking up any of the baked goods.
