It’s no secret that a fresh-pressed vegetable or fruit juice does the body some serious good. Just look at the small but mighty “green juice”—chock-full of phytonutrients, enzymes, antioxidants, and vitamins that will keep you looking and feeling aglow. Luckily in the past five years, New York City has become a veritable juice lover’s paradise, teeming with juice spots that outdo one another with their exotic superfood potions. Thanks to this variety and innovation, even the avowed vegetable juice phobic’s palate is sure to be satisfied. Here we round up our top 10 places to grab a juice on the go in New York City.

This New York City juice chain is quickly becoming the Starbucks of kale, boasting over 60 locations in the New York tri-state area. Juice Press offers organic, non-GMO cold-pressed juice, smoothies, raw superfoods, coffee, tea, infused waters (try the rose water!), and supplements. A favorite green juice is the uber-potent, slightly sweet Greens + Earth, which is an earthy blend of kale, cucumber, celery, pineapple, swiss chard, lemon, dandelion, parsley, ginger, proviotic (vegan probiotic), and red apple. Wash this down with the delicious guilt-free indulgence called Vanilla Delight, which is a creamy milkshake-like concoction of coconut water, almond, coconut oil, vanilla, and sea salt. Luckily, Juice Press is in many New York neighborhoods, so you’re likely to pass one on your day out on the town without having to go too far out of your way.
