Detroit is growing, and with it, the number of juice bars around town. Whether you love a cold-pressed juice or a thick and creamy smoothie, we've got you covered. Check out the best spots to step up your juice game!
Make your weekend trips to Eastern Market even healthier with a stop at Beyond. We know it’s almost food overload down there (and that pizza smell!), but once you step into Beyond Juice, you won’t regret it. The staff is ultra-friendly and their Detroit pride game is strong — you will most likely see more than one Tigers hat. Thirsty yet? Get your green smoothie kick with "The Boss" — cucumber, avocado, spinach, kale, banana, apple, and PB. Or keep it fresh a "Citrus Circuit" juice with packed with—you guessed it—citrus fruits!
It’s refreshing just walking into this place. With multiple locations in the Detroit area, consider DROUGHT juice central not matter where you are in the city. Here, fridges full of organic, raw, cold-pressed juice line the wall with reds, blues, and greens. And if you're a morning juicer, the "Cacao Cold Brew Shake" is a real winner; it’s packed with energizing ingredients like chia seeds, hemp seeds, and organic oats, and is perfect for early-morning fuel or a midday pick-me-up.
This little shop is BIG on their juice. If the wooden tables and benches weren’t cute enough, they have an entire chalkboard wall that is more inspiring than your Instagram feed. If you’re into elixirs, get the adventurous "Pear on Fire" — pear, lemon, aloe, maca, and cayenne. Another must-try is the "Coffee Turmeric" smoothie; a true game-changer. Get ready for cold brew coffee, banana, almond milk, raw oats, turmeric, ginger, and cinnamon. Fitt Tip: Urge Juice has a full toast menu, and yes, avocado toast is included and it is bomb.
We are loving the grassroots boho vibes at Cacao Tree Cafe up in Royal Oak. You should know that this place is a smoothie superfood heaven, and not your everyday basic juice joint. They are big into sustainability and make it a point to incorporate local ingredients into their juices. Local bee pollen tops their best-selling "Bee Green" smoothie — drink up mango, spinach, apple juice, spirulina, chlorella, local raw honey, and bee pollen. Though, if you are looking for a post-workout boost, try the "Protein Fuel" — this one has tons of almond butter and still some room for kale. Fitt Tip: You can also build your own smoothie.
Give yourself some extra time for this one; the juice and smoothie menu is huge. We’re talking every superfood combo you can imagine — maca, chlorella, spirulina, and hemp (and some we may not be able to pronounce). But hey, more of a reason to keep going back! Our Fitt fave is the avocado smoothie, the creamiest smoothie in the game. As a bonus, the café here is part of the bigger wellness center offering multiple interdisciplinary services.
Hello and welcome to acai bowl heaven. Cafe Succo really knows their acai bowls! We’re into their “Energize” bowl and “Incredible” protein-packed smoothie. Organic, raw, vegan and GF — their cold-pressed juice is worth writing home about. Want the full effect? Ask about their "Vitathlete Detox" (with multi-day options). The patio seating is sprawling and spacious too, so bring your friends, grab a bowl, a cold-pressed juice, and discover Birmingham’s finest.
Have you ever seen a juice bar with tree branches hanging from the ceiling? We have. It’s Naked Fuel, and totally is #PlantGoals to the max. Naked Fuel, in West Bloomfield, is owned and run by a local mother-daughter duo; you truly feel the comfort and hospitality during every visit. Tingle your smoothie taste buds with the truly unique "Leaping Lizard" vanilla bone broth smoothie. Or if you’re feeling like a boost, grab the antioxidant-packed "Matcha Mango". Feel good now? You certainly will.
Don’t let the fact that this Midtown Detroit juice spot is set up in the back of Marcus Market deter you from making the trip past the bread aisle. Juice Joint Detroit serves up craveable juice and smoothie concoctions that make it easy to get in your daily dose of fruits and veggies. Order up "The Boss" smoothie made with matcha, avocado, spinach, mango, banana, almond milk, and agave and take on your workweek like, well… a boss.
Occupying a quaint storefront in Grosse Pointe, J House Juice has what you need for your next juice fix. Their juices are 100% raw and unpasteurized and have no added sugars, preservatives, or water. Our favorite? "A.P.S.D" (aka Aches, Pains, and Sinus Drains) — with pineapple, celery, and a generous kick of cayenne pepper, it’s the simple, yet effective, jolt you need when you’re in a fog.
