Need your superfood smoothie? This is THE place. Marcelo, the owner, speaks beautiful English, has the cleanest ingredients available in the city, and really knows his stuff. A smoothie and a bowl of yogurt is a fine way to start your daily adventure. The store also stocks loose ingredients, like turmeric and powdered ginger and sesame seeds and fresh nuts.... More

This place is a life-saver within the eat-out landscape of Cuenca. There are not a whole lot of healthy options in the city. Live Green Superfoods offers a wide array of smoothies (#9 is my fave) at a reasonable price for a good sized portion. I generally feel full after consuming one of their delicious smoothies. Additionally, they have some... More

We love to shop at this little gem! The staff are so nice and helpful and really care about their customers. Love the Greek yogurt, macadamia nuts and, well, everything we've ever purchased there! It's a bit difficult to get to this shop these days because of the tram construction but it's so worth the extra effort!!

I finally found a place that sells a few hard to find items like Maca and Cuzco pink salt. I was able to get some really great quality Maca by the pound with delivery service for only $2 the same day. The prices on the Maca are about half of what you would expect in the US. I have been... More

They also have a shop Francisco Moscoso y Luis Morena Mora. This is not in El Centro. However if you are shopping at Supermaxi El Vergel, they are two blocks away. Anyone who is near the Clinica Puacarbamba or is on Calle Paucarbamba, check it out. It is a bigger shop than the one in el centro.

After spending a few weeks in Ecuador and feeling a little out of place, I found this tiny little shop! I loved it here! The owner and his family were amazing people and very helpful (especially with my spanglish!) The smoothies and the yogurt here are amazing and the fruits are to die for! I tried a different smoothie here... More

My friends and I had been mountaineering for a month in Ecuador, heartily missing greens and veggies. It took us several failed attempts to identify the tiny doorway of this place but once we did we went back every day! Delicious and healthy smoothies can totally be a meal replacement and there are also artisan soaps and nutrition supplements that... More

Great smoothie place with other very healthy options for sale too. We had smoothies, plus were able to purchase fresh local goat milk greek yogurt. The chocolate bars are local and very good.

It has a handy range for sure but the price and service (from the lady who was there when I was anyway) was shocking. The prices are high and the storage poor but the thing that got my goat was that after ordering 500g of dates that were a crazy price per kilo the lady then weighed out 436g and... More

It's not easy traveling in Ecuador as a vegan. I was so thrilled to find this gem one block from my hotel in Cuenca. Clean, organic, fresh & delicious
