There’s a new business on the Southside just minutes away from Lackland Air Force Base, owned by Latina entrepreneur Monica Fuentes and right next to her parents Puerto Rican restaurant El Coquí. Coco Bliss has a full menu of healthy freshly-squeezed juices, smoothies, and acai bowls. Its physical address is 5032 W Military Drive, San Antonio, TX 78242.
Monica wanted to bring a healthy eatery option to the Military and Southside community and she did exactly that. Coco Bliss will have its grand opening on April 17, 2021 at 11am and it’s regular hours will be Monday- Friday 7am-4pm, Saturday 9am – 4pm, and closed on Sundays.
As soon as you walk in you immediately feel the fresh and ambient vibe. And if you love posting pictures on social media, you have to take full advantage of sitting on their swing. (Don’t forget to tag @Cocobliss & @Southsidesatx to share your pictures with us.)
We tried some of Monica’s favorite menu items during our sneak peek and were not disappointed. Everything we tried was made with fresh ingredients right before our eyes. Some of the items we tried were the Matcha Mama Smoothie that consists of matcha powder, banana pine apple and milk, the Coco Greens Juice made with spinach, cucumber, celery, green apple, pineapple. lemon juice, and ginger and the unforgettable Coco Bliss Bowl with coconut cream base, granola, strawberry, pineapple, banana, almond flakes, cacao nips, and a drizzle of honey and almond butter, and nutella.
