Don’t you hate how some places blend up frozen yogurt and sugary strawberries and call it a smoothie? We put together this list of Baltimore's best squeezes for when you're craving something made from actual fruit and veggies, not just a glorified milkshake. Thirsty yet?
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. And 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 trolling the aisles to fight off any potential hanger.
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.
Honestly, Stall 11 is kale’n the juice game, backed by their mission of providing “good, honest food.” All ingredients—some eclectic—are sourced from local Maryland biodynamic farms. Their space in Remington’s R. House may be tiny, with small menu to match, but it’s to the point. The smoothies have a coconut yogurt and almond milk base (good news for those with lactose intolerance), with fun flavors and additives such as cardamom and hemp seeds.
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. Talking about giving new meaning to "quality over quantity"!
