There’s so much delicious food in Istanbul that it’s very easy to go overboard. Good thing that the detox phenomenon has taken hold of Istanbul with a few excellent juice bars that offer programs to their health conscious customers. We took a look at the best juice bars that can help you reset your body and get back on the healthy track.
Juico was one of the first brands to bring the whole juice detox concept to Istanbul and their success has only continued over time. The healthy juice company offers six different programs, and currently the Juico Winter Package is a standout, perfect for those who want to boost their immune system. Apart from the cold pressed juices, the Winter Package also includes chia pudding, pumpkin soup, a granola bar, and green soup. Of course, you can also taste Juico’s delicious blends on their own with options such as White (date juice, cashew, cinnamon), Energizing Green (apple, spinach, pineapple, avocado), or Coffee Almond (date juice, cold brew coffee, almond) among many others. We’re also really fond of the Cold Killer Ginger Shot with ginger and tangerine, which helps to prevent a cold. Stop by their juice bar in Sarıyer or check out their online shop for all the details.

Jüs Istanbul was founded in 2014 by Aylın Erman and offers organic and cold-pressed juices both online and in their own juice bar in Cihangir. Experienced in everything juice related from having worked in organic juice bars in the US, Erman and her team also offer healthy food options such as a raw rainbow salad, guacamole, or chia pudding. You can drop by Jüs’ café in the bohemian neighbourhood of Cihangir, or order online from one of the detox packages that are for seasoned juicers to beginners who just want to get back on a healthier track. Jüs also has food detox programs where the juices are paired with healthy food options, which are always seasonal and deliciously healthy.

What started out as an online shop soon turned into an actual juice bar in the Maçka neighbourhood. Blended offers their cold pressed juices on their own or as a detox package that either replaces dinner with a healthy juice blend, or the entire day’s food intake with several blended juices. There are four green blends with ingredients such as kale, spinach, green apple, and kiwi, as well as a red blend with beet, turmeric, and fresh pepper (plus other ingredients). You can also become a weekly or monthly member with Blended sending you all the necessary juices for your frequent body reset. Either way, you can always drop by their light and airy venue that makes you feel healthy as soon as you walk in.

The Juice Lady at the Bomonti Organic Market
If you’d like to go back to basics, the juice lady at the Bomonti Organic Marker, which sets up every Saturday, is also a great option. One cup of juice made from the organic and seasonal fruits and vegetables from the market itself costs 5TL and is a great and healthy way to start your day as you shop for your organic produce for the rest of the week.
