Amazing. You can't get much fresher/better/tastier than this when the fruit grows right out back behind the shack. A MUST STOP.

We stopped in for a late breakfast snack on the way to zip lining in Umauma. Knowing that many places operate on "island time" we were pleasantly surprised with the speed of the service. We ordered fresh fruit smoothies and muffins to enjoy. The muffins were incredibly moist and decadent, almost more like bread pudding than what I was used... More

You must stop here as you travel along the scenic drive; the smoothie is affordable and very filling. I ended up buying four different flavors and eating 3 of the 4 myself; needless to say the little misses wasn't too pleased with my gluttony. I can't remember the exact name but the Farmer Blend smoothie was excellent; its a good... More

Lovely little fruity oasis on the tourist trail from the botanical gardens... Although we didn't eat, the food looked fresh and, looking at the happy eaters, tasty as well. The smoothies were AMAZING and filled a hole before dinner (no coconuts hence the petty 1 star minus - sorry!)

We stopped in after visiting the The Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden which is just down the road. The tropical fruit smoothies were wonderful and service friendly. Lots of shady seating too.

Located on the 4 mile historic road that passes the botanical gardens, What's Shakin' was a delightful find. I had the best smoothie I have ever tasted at this charming outdoor restaurant. I can't tell you the name of it because the ladies created it just for me when I told them the fruits I liked best. After having lunch... More

The freshest most delicious smoothies we have ever had! All of the fruit is island grown and perfectly ripe and naturally sweet. A must try while on the Big Island!
