The juice craze has come a long way since the 90s. Just in time for Spring as a matter of fact. We wanted to shed some light on juice places that will have you begging for more.
If you’re a juice fanatic like we are, there are a lot of places that deserve some street cred (and have the cold press process and nutritional benefits to boot)! While doing some competitive juicing, we’ve found that these three places have some bragging rights. Upon walking into these local hipster hangouts, you won’t find you’ll be competing against any real juice snobbery. In fact, you might actually be inquiring about all their delicious juice options that are readily available to have you feeling awesome!
Liquiteria is New York City’s original cold pressed juicery. With locations in the East Village, Chelsea, and Union Square it is easily one of the most accessible places to hydrate and refresh your senses. We absolutely love their line of beverages that have cayenne pepper added to them. One of their most interesting juices would be their “Killer XX” which includes ingredients like Apple, Lemon, A Double Serving of Ginger, and Cayenne. They also offer a wide variety of smoothies, herbal supplements, and a bunch of healthy snacks for your trek around NYC. By far, one of the best juice places to scope out if you ever come to town.
What more is there to say about selection? Juice Press has by FAR one of the most extensive collection of cold pressed juices in New York. We particularly like their location on Mott St. It’s so quaint and the staff is super friendly. Not to mention if you’re feeling ill equipped after a heavy night of partying, they can turn your cannot attitude into a “can do anything” attitude in a pinch. Just tell their juice geniuses how you’re feeling and they’ll recommend something from their raw foods menu OR may even offer you a free sample of some of the most darn good juice concoctions you’ll ever taste. Hooray for juice! If you’re a veggie fan, this is the place to go!
Last but not least is Juice Generation at Equinox gym. The best part about this fast and friendly juice place is that you don’t even have to be a member of Equinox gym to take advantage of their lovely selection of juices, smoothies, and hot beverages. They even have a refrigerator where you can stock up on all the RAW foods you want. They are also very quick if you’re stopping by on your lunch break. We especially like their selection of smoothies in the summertime. They also offer wheat grass shot boosts. Stop by the SoHo location and grab a “Supa Dupa” --it looks like slime, but tastes like heaven. Juice virgins will probably enjoy their more fruity frozen smoothies.
However you choose to beat the heat this Spring and Summer, juicing is one way to keep you cool in your new frocks and sandals. Your body is your temple! Juice on you lovely babes, juice on!
