The trend for juicing is going strong and outposts are popping up in every Los Angeles neighborhood. So where can you get the most delicious juices? Here are some of our favorites to be found in the Californian city.
Juice Crafters serves fruit smoothies, cold-pressed juice, green smoothies, acai bowls, meal replacement smoothies and wellness shots. Founded in Los Angeles, it currently has 12 locations throughout Southern California, after recently setting up shop in Beverly Hills and Marina Del Rey. Co-owner Ilan Mit mentioned that the company is planning a few more stores across LA, in Silver Lake and Culver City, so fans of their popular juices, such as the ‘Greenest #3’ and ‘Pacific Love Smoothie’ can get their juice fix soon there as well.
You will find multiple Pressed Juiceries, many on the same street, throughout the city. Pressed Juicery opened their first location in 2010, when there was just one other juice store in Los Angeles. The founder states that ‘all of our juices are made from 100% farm-fresh fruits and vegetables and never contains additives such as waters, sugars, purees or powders. We also offer a great combination of classic favorites and unique flavors. We even have five variations of our green juice with ingredients ranging from apples to fennel to cilantro. Our juices [which are broken up into categories: greens, roots, citrus, fruits, signature, coffee and seasonal] are also cold-pressed using a custom hydraulic press that uses thousands of pounds to gently extract the maximum amount of vitamins and minerals from the ingredients. This results in fresh, delicious nutrient-rich juice. It doesn’t get better than that.’
First opened in 2013, Clover Juice now has two locations. Serving healthy shakes, Stumptown coffee and other nutritious on-the-go snacks, Clover is primarily known for their raw, cold-pressed juices made from locally sourced, organic produce. If you’re not in LA, don’t worry, as Clover recently launched national shipping on their website.
Robeks Fresh Juices & Smoothies
Robeks Fresh Juices & Smoothies has established itself as a premium brand in the juice and smoothie industries by paying as much attention to nutrition as to taste. Menu items feature farm-fresh, naturally ripened fruits and vegetables that retain nutrients, live enzymes and natural flavor. The company recently announced their new maple-water menu, as the organic maple water used in Robeks menu offerings is micronutrient-infused, antioxidant-rich and a great hydrator.
Press Brothers Juicery
J.D. and David Jones are carrying on a family tradition of juicing, started by their mother on the Kansas farm where they grew up, by commercially producing cold-pressed juice of unrivaled quality. Press Brothers Juicery juices are made fresh every morning at their USDA-certified organic kitchen in Echo Park from the best locally-sourced organic fruits and vegetables. Located in LA’s historic Grand Central Market, visitors can purchase from their complete menu à la carte in two sizes for snacks, cleanses or to accompany a meal.
Located in the downtown Los Angeles Arts District, The Springs includes an organic juice bar, yoga studio, wellness center and raw vegan restaurant and wine bar. The 100% organic cold-pressed juice bar has recently launched a brand new menu of cocktails, ranging from savory to sweet and each with a sake base, inspired by their popular pressed juices.
Kreation Organic Juicery
Kreation Organic Juicery, the Beverly-Hills based juice bar, has nine locations across greater Los Angeles. They have most recently become popular due to their 24-hour, fully functional juice ATM at their Beverly Hills location. Along with their juices, which come from 100% organic fruits and vegetables from Santa Monica Farmer’s markets, the juicery also offers four different cleanses, Reboot, Grounding, Flourish and Premium Detox.
