Looking for something refreshing and nourishing? We put together a list of Baltimore's best squeezes for when you're craving a boost in a bottle. Try them for yourself, and you'll see what we mean.
Feeling a cold coming on? Get a (different) kind of flu shot here at Canton's Corner Juice Bar. A prescription of apple cider vinegar, turmeric, ginger, cayenne pepper, garlic, and flaxseed oil is sure to bring you back to life. Fitt Tip: Corner Juice Bar also provides the hangover cure — a shot of wheatgrass. You’ll have that pep back in your step and be ready to head over to a boozy brunch in Canton Square in no time!
Looking to spice up your life? Try one of PlantBar’s crazy recipe mix-ups! Their hot pink watermelon/lemonade concoction includes jalapeños to get your metabolism fired up for the day. Not only does PlantBar bring freshness to your taste buds in the form of juice and smoothies, but they also have a whole raw food catering line. Sweet potato Pad Thai and spirulina lime mousse parfaits... need we say more? Looking for an ideal vegan date night? Spend an evening at their next Raw Food Rave — they’ll provide the glow sticks and music, so all you have to bring is your appetite.
It’s true — everything is better naked. Get your head out of the gutter; we're talkin' raw foods! Naked Lunch is the cutest little juice bar serving up the goods inside Hampden’s MOM’s Organic Market. Fresh-pressed juices are made right behind the counter, so you know they are 100% organic and raw. And if you’re in the mood for kombucha, add it to your juice or try one of their rotating flavors. We recommend grabbing a juice before strolling the aisles to fight off any potential hungry impulse purchase.
Pure, raw fruits and vegetables transform into juice or smoothie form, giving this local hot spot an obvious choice for its name. You think it, they’ve got it: fresh cold-pressed bottled juice, smoothies galore, acai bowls, juice cleanse programs, and raw snacks. Did we mention kombucha on tap? Fill’er up next time you’re near one of their three locations in Federal Hill, Towson, or Hampden.
EarthShake officially has our tastebuds trembling. We Baltimoreans have been going out of our way to check out this new quaint juice bar in Locust Point, and for good reason — they’re all about Baltimore Pride. Where else could you find a juice named after our local sports teams? Grab a “Raven” or an “Oriole” to go, but don’t expect to save it for later. You’ll chug that juice faster than an O's fastball.
At Liquid Earth, the list of fresh squeezed juices and raw smoothies is infinite, with specialties such as the Ginger Coldsnap Cure (with bee pollen!). Liquid Earth prides itself on its “living food” menu, meaning all juices and smoothies are made of local produce — nothing from a can, jar, or bottle. Sip on one of their enzyme-rich libations while escaping into the artwork from local Fells Point artists featured on the walls.
Occupying a space in Locust Point, the Clean Juice franchise is offering a refreshing take on health foods to the BMORE community. The menu aims to keep your energy high and calorie count low by serving up acai bowls, toasts, oat bowls, juices, and smoothies. Looking for a health detox, immunity booster, or energy shot? They’ve got a juice for that (and then some). Stop by for an afternoon pick-me-up — you won't be disappointed.
You know what's cool? Sippin' on clean, healthy drinks. Gangster Vegan is spreading kindness and fresh juice—packed full of organic fruits and veggies—all around the city. The idea is that fast food doesn't need to be greasy and loaded with calories. Instead, you can pick up flavor-packed beverages like The Roots, which is loaded with just three ingredients: oranges, beets, and carrots. Talk about giving new meaning to "quality over quantity"!
Formerly Stall 11 located in R. House, Stem: Farm + Kitchen is showcasing modern twists on all of your plant-based favorites, including juices and smoothies. They feature an array of ingredients sourced from Maryland biodynamic farms and their very own urban growing operation. Enjoy one of their grain bowls or salads with their KALE’N IT juice, made with kale, spinach, cucumber, apple, and lemon, or the CALIFORNIAN smoothie made with coconut yogurt, almond milk, banana, date, almond butter, cinnamon, and cardamom. Plus, everything is made from scratch daily, so you are guaranteed something fresh and delicious.
