Juice has come a long way since the glory days of boxed OJ, leaving us with so many superfood-filled, good-for-you options, it’s hard to keep up. Want to be in on the healthy juice and smoothie craze? These spots will give you a taste of what The Big D has to offer.
I Love Juice Bar will have you saying, “Dang, I love juice” after just one drink. The reason? Every made-to-order creation starts with wholesome, local, and organic ingredients. And you’ve got plenty to choose from — the menu’s filled with vitamin-packed juices, fresh fruit smoothies, and even sweet and savory bowls and sandwiches. But if you’re hankering for a nutrient boost, feast your eyes on their power shot menu. The Grand Slam (wheatgrass, ginger, lemon, pineapple) will do wonders after a night out. Stop by their multiple Dallas-area shops to fill and fuel up.
Brewed+Pressed is a must-go when you’re in Uptown or the Design District. Seriously, this place has it all. Beauty and immunity shots, green and red juices, nutrient-packed shakes, and healthy snacks. But if you’re looking for something especially unique, opt for one of their specialty tonics or milk blends. Their tonics contain adaptogens (aka super herbs) like ashwagandha, tocos, and cordyceps. And their Golden, Island, and Mexican Chocolate milks aren’t your usual grocery store find — we promise. Plus, their pre-made drinks come in chic bottles that automatically up your cool factor.
This locally-owned-and-operated health and wellness haven has everything you need to tackle whatever life throws your way. We’re talking house-made, cold-pressed juice concoctions, nutrient-packed smoothies, antioxidant-rich bowls, health shots, nut mylks, and cleanses. And, even better, it’s all made fresh, daily. Check them out in Highland Park, NorthPark Center, Inwood, and Inwood & Forest and don’t forget to grab a gluten-free power cookie for the road.
JuiceLand has finally crept up from Austin to North Texas and set up not one, but three Dallas locations — and we couldn’t be more stoked. What’s the big deal? Their menu. Choose from their best-selling smoothies, grab-and-go or made-to-order juices, and health-boosting shots. But they didn’t stop there. They have hot drinks, too, and awesome add-ins like vitamin-rich Blue Majik and camu camu. And don’t forget their grab-and-go meals, which have gluten-free and vegan eaters rejoicing.
The owners of GEM in Preston Hollow and North Dallas believe each juice is worthy of gem-status, and with juice names like Tahitian Pearl and Super Sapphire, you’ll see why. The thoughtfully-crafted selections are totally organic, made with real ingredients, and whipped up fresh each day. And for those who swear by apple cider vinegar, The GEM’s got you covered with an ACV boost. Can’t decide? Try the cold-pressed Flawless. No guarantees it’ll leave you feeling like Beyoncé, but it’s worth a shot, right?
Buda Juice does cold-pressed as it should be: raw, organic, and real. Even their glass bottles are 100% natural and recyclable. And, aside from their craveable juices, we love their commitment to helping the community. They donate their pulp to local organic farms like Bonton Farms, and they open their kitchen doors to the public for tours if you want to see how their juice is made — a great way to change up your weekend routine. Find their bottles all over DFW, they’ve got several storefronts set up across the city (plus one in Frisco).
Nékter Juice Bar may not be a Dallas-only special, but man, are we lucky to have more than a few of them nearby. The reason? This place slings smoothies crafted with house-made cashew milk, juices packed with fresh fruits and veggies, and plant-based ice cream that’s to-die-for (you can find these ice cream Skoops at their West Plano, Preston Center, and University Park locales). Into making your own concoction? You’re more than welcome to customize your blend at Nékter. Fitt Tip: word on the street is that their açaí bowls can’t be beat. You be the judge.
Salubrious Juice & More is all about giving the people what they want — juice that's 100% organic, 100% plant-based and juice made with locally-sourced, non-GMO ingredients. Plus, beyond fueling Dallas with healthy juice, smoothies, and smoothie bowls, they’re also dedicated to high-quality customer service. So expect your Mean Green juice, fruit-infused smoothie, or avocado toast to be served with a smile.
Maybe it’s their commitment to using only real, wholesome, quality ingredients. Or maybe it’s their ultra welcoming environment. Whatever it is, we're not complaining, because this Bishop Arts District café has cracked the code to crafting an insanely-flavorful juice. Start your day with a cold-pressed Sunshine juice packed with watermelon, pineapple, mint, and lime. Or, kick things up a notch with the Fire Starter: a perfect blend of pineapple, orange, jalapeño, cilantro, and lime. And in the event that you’ve become hopelessly addicted to their juice concoctions (you've been warned), they offer boxes of six 12oz. or 32oz. bottles that can be delivered straight to your door.
