Banana Joe's fruit stand is located about 200 yards north of the Kilaea Lighthouse turn off. It is a little place with a variety fresh fruits and other local goodies. The claim to fame is the fresh fruit smoothies and frosty. They also use fresh fruit, bananas or pineapple or both together. We have always had the frosty. I don't... More

You cannot leave Kauai without stopping at Banana Joe's for the best frozen treat ever! It is a frosty, all natural using only fresh fruit and no added sugar. We often take visitors there and everyone is always amazed at how delicious these fruit frosties are. The owners, Joe and Cindy are the nicest people you can meet and love... More

You got to try the fruit frosty. All natural, frozen fruit – we had the mango-banana – which tastes like a rich ice-cream but has no added products. The stand has some very good natural food and it is a must stop for vegans. Stop and talk to Joe, he is the nicest guy and will explain how he makes... More

The smoothies were tasty & filled with fresh fruit. It was refreshing. Price a little high for their items. The gal that rang up at the register was ditzy, which ruined the ambience. Oh well, the items purchased were delicious

On our way back from exploring the north shore of Kauai we stopped at Banana Joe's, an unassuming fruit stand/shop we'd heard great things about. They were out of a few things, but did have pineapple frosties available. Mmmm! Made my squeezing pineapple through a special juicer/blender, it has the consistency of ice cream. Very good! Although the person there... More

Banana Joe's smoothies and frosties are AMAZING! Made with only fruit and fruit juice, they are tasty and healthy. We loved them SO much we went 3 times! Their frosty was my favorite. It was made of bananas and pineapple and had the consistency of ice cream. For someone who is lactose intolerant, this was a dream come true!

They use only frozen fruit and an amazing juicer (a Champion juicer?) to produce a very thick, smooth, eat-with-a-spoon banana frosty. One frosty is enough for two people. They make other frosties using other kinds of frozen fruit--nothing else added. Worth a stop.

Banana/pineapple frosty was great. However, the $5.00 "tea" in the refrigerator case was HORRIBLE. Tasted like something that had turned sour. This product should not be sold.

Must stop here for a quick refreshment or if you are looking to buy some local produce (esp. fruits and vegetables) We had a banana frosty, which was super-yummy. One was enough to share between 2 adults.

Banana Joe's is undoubtedly an establishment on the north shore of Kauai. Joe and Cindy have been running it longer than I have been alive and let me tell you, practice makes perfect. To all the people reading reviews in which people complain about certain fruit not being in season: This is a local fruit stand. Joe and Cindy only... More
