EarthShake Bringing Healthy Options to Locust Point

| December 20, 2016 | 1 Comments

Friends Damion DeSantis, Jack Goldberg, Jason Schiavone, and Chris Sibiski are opening EarthShake at 1648 E. Fort Ave. in Locust Point. The space was formerly Star’s Confectionery before the property was bought and renovated by Schiavone. The space has a 600 sq. ft. first floor with a kitchen and seating area, as well as a 600 sq. ft. basement with storage and a break room. The team is hoping to open EarthShake this month.

EarthShake will serve cold-pressed juices made in house, as well as smoothies, all-natural bowls, teas, and cold-pressed coffee and nitro coffee from Ceremony Coffee Roasters. Everything served at EarthShake will use all-natural ingredients with no added sugars or dairy.

Juices will include the Hurricane with orange, pineapple, and wheat grass; the Raven with cranberry, strawberry, spirulina, stevia, and lime; the Coal Miner with charcoal, agave, and lemon; Beet Juice with beets, carrots, ginger, and apple; Tutti Frutti with kiwi, red grapes, apple, and swiss chard; and their take on lemonade with agave, spirulina, and lemon. Juices come in 16oz bottles and are priced form $6 to$8. EarthShake will be developing juicing cleanses and will make popsicles from the juices in the summer.

Smoothies will include many similar flavors, but as a blend and not pressed as juice.

Bowls, which are $9, include acai bowls, dragon fruit bowls, pitaya bowls, avocado bowls, and natural cocoa bowls. Bowls will include toppings such as granola, nuts, seeds, and bananas. The team noted the bowls are good for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and are also good for dessert as a replacement for ice cream.

All the materials, containers, and cleaning supplies at EarthShake will be “eco-friendly.”

EarthShake is hoping to educate customers on the health benefits of its ingredients, and the team is excited to be around an area with so many young families to promote healthy living at a young age. They were attracted to Locust Point because they see it as an active and health-conscious area. They love their location across from Latrobe Park and all the activities that take place there.

Many of the recipes were created by Goldberg who told about the transformation his body made when he started eating healthy and exercising. He said you’ll find him working out across the street at Latrobe Park. All of the owners were born and raised in Baltimore, and DeSantis is especially familiar with the area as Locust Point resident, and son of Our House co-owner Dianne De Santis.

EarthShake will be open every day form 7am-7pm, other than Sundays when it will close at 6pm. They will likely stay open later in the summer.
