Nutrition shake and tea shop now open in East Islip


East Islip Nutrition is now serving up nutritional drinks to fuel people throughout their day.

The protein shake and energy tea spot officially opened its doors on May 23 in the Heckscher Shopping Center in East Islip.

Wilson Maldonado and Rosario Narvaez are the owners of the store.

“We see [East Islip] as such a great community, there is a lot of movement here and nice families,” Maldonado, of Central Islip, said. “This a family-owned business so we just wanted to keep the same, good energy.”

Maldonado said East Islip Nutrition is all about promoting a healthier lifestyle while creating a welcoming, fun atmosphere for customers.

The protein shake flavors include peanut butter cup, french toast, fried ice cream, strawberry cheesecake, and plenty more.

All menu items are meant to be a replacement for sugary drinks, employee Danna Menger says.

The family also owns Energize Nutrition in Selden and plans on opening another health spot in Manorville this summer.

“It’s a great feeling seeing the progress and a weight off my shoulders to see it as a business, people are getting to know it,” Maldonado said. “The purpose of this place is to grow, learn, and teach others about what we do over here.”

East Islip Nutrition at 296 Montauk Highway is open seven days a week, Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
