It took a couple decades but people seem to finally be getting the message that most of us are unhealthy AF. One trend that emerged as a way to get our health back on track was juicing and it doesn’t show any signs of slowing down.
Millennials especially seem to have that health food craze on lock and have made juice and smoothie bars a staple of most neighborhoods. Whether you grab a smoothie or acai bowl to replace breakfast or go all-out on a 3-day juice cleanse, these health bars have your back. Most offer a variety of smoothies, wellness shots/cocktails, juices, and bowls as well as a program for daily cleanses. Here are some of our favorite stops around Houston to gorge yourself on all the essentials to live your best life:
Nourish Juice & Smoothie Bar
Located in the Montrose neighborhood, Nourish is a great choice if you’re looking to grab a healthy snack or purchase a cleanse. With a menu that includes acai bowls, ginger shots, and green juices, my guess is you won’t be walking out empty handed. There’s something for everyone regardless of the type of energy boost or vitamins you’re looking for. Nourish also provides three-day juice cleanses for purchase and will deliver them to your doorstep!
Hop on down to the Greenway neighborhood and hit up JuiceWell for your next cold-pressed juice fix. This Health Bar offers organic and local products whenever available and keeps a stacked menu of juices, smoothies, wellness cocktails, and seasonal items. The goal is to keep you healthy and keep local farms in business. JuiceWell believes in flooding your system with essential vitamins and minerals and giving your stomach a break from all the greasy, fried food you spent all last weekend consuming, so they also offer 1-, 3-, 5-, 7-, and 10-day juice cleanses.
One Love Juice & Smoothie
Keeping with the organic and local trend, One Love takes it to the next level by pressing their own almond, cashew, and hemp milks in-house. Turmeric, ginger, hemp seed, and chia seed are thought to be essential toward overall health and are highlighted in the menu items provided at One Love. The bonus to this juice and smoothie spot is that it’s located inside the YogaOne studio in Midtown so you can get your healthy nom on right after getting your “om” on in one of their all-levels yoga classes. #Namaste
This is the first juice and smoothie place we’ve seen offer a Hangover special so naturally it jumped to the top of our list. Juice Girl serves remedies tailored to help other ailments as well with quick fixes for headaches, fatigue, and digestion issues. Keeping true to the ultimate health food trend, you can select menu items that are local, organic, raw, vegan, and gluten free. Juice Girl also offers shots — the kind that won’t make you regret your weekend — which we highly recommend.
