Agavi Juice

Agavi Juice is a healthy and delicious snack venue with multiple combinations on offer. Featured smoothies include the Agave Mojito (made with pineapple, lemon, banana, mint, raw agave, and coconut water) and the Green n’ Mean (a mix of strawberry, papaya, raw agave, kale, and almond milk). Aside from the classics, Agavi offers a range of tasty tropical options to choose from.

Juice Generation

Blueberry smoothie.

A spot that was founded in 1999 by Eric Helms that now boasts locations all over New York City, Juice Generation whips up incredible concoctions made from premium ingredients. Try the Kale Kolada, a mix of kale, coconut, spinach, and banana served in a coconut shell, or the Mr. Greengenes, made from spinach, kale, mango, banana, and nut milk. You can’t go wrong with this place; it’s a NYC go-to.

Oasis Jimma Juice Bar

Established by Abdi Abajebel in 2012, Oasis Jimma Juice Bar has become one of the most popular smoothie spots for New Yorkers. Fresh and all-natural ingredients give their smoothies incredible flavor, and customers can choose from a range of added protein and nutritional supplements like nut butter.

Juice Press

Juice Press offers an organic smoothie bar, blending almond milk, hemp milk, coconut water, or coffee with the clients’ choice. Their menu features Açai bowls, which are smoothies filled with blueberry, butter, and almond butter with crunchy granola and another topping of your choosing. Their best sellers include Fountain of the Youth, made with coconut water, banana, strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, agave, hemp protein, and coconut oil. Also try the Hawaiian Healer, a mix of mint, coconut water, banana, cinnamon, ginger, and pineapple.


Falafel and smoothie bar Taïm was founded back in 2005 by Chef Einat Admony and Stefan Nafziger, who envisioned a menu featuring street food classics with a gourmet twist. Their signature smoothies include pear with mint and lemon, cantaloupe with ginger, and strawberry with raspberry-Thai basil. Choose from one of their expertly-concocted juices or create your own.

Ripe Juice Bar & Grill

Mango Lassi

Free from added sugars or preservatives, Ripe smoothies are full of natural flavor. Their version of ‘additives’ includes the likes of echinacea, wheatgrass, and cayenne pepper. They only use fat-free or skim milk yogurt, with vegan options for the dairy-free among us. The Açai Detox, made from açai berries, strawberries, blueberries, and apple juice, is particularly delicious.

Branson Got Juice

Branson Got Juice has a vast variety of flavor and nutrient combinations, with extra shots and supplements available. Try the ‘Sugarhill’ made with açai berry, cider, strawberry, blueberry, and raspberry, and be sure to add extra vitamin C and ginseng. The ‘Papaya Ale’ is also a crowd favorite and is made from papaya, banana, peach, whey protein, ginger, and almond milk.
