Pittsburgh is ripe with juice bars that are whipping up the freshest, meanest, and greenest juice around. If you’re craving a healthy snack in a hurry, you’ve got to try one (or all!) of these local juice and smoothie spots.
Offering grab-and-go options like cold-pressed juice and superfood smoothies, REED & CO. on Butler Street in Lawrenceville has you covered with healthy and delicious eats to supercharge your day. And if you’re looking for something a little more filling, try out the Beyond Meat Burger, Harvest Bowl, White Bean Chili, or more. The full menu is vegan and gluten-free! And don’t forget — they carry Commonplace Coffee and Gryphon’s Teas too. Give them a follow on Instagram, and be on the lookout for pop-up events and new menu items.
The juicers at Salúd whip up some of the best (and most tasty) juices in the area. With cold-pressed juices, smoothies, shots, bowls, hot drinks, and more, Salúd has you and your health covered. Interested in a detox? Check out their “Rock the Detox” program to give your body a little extra love. Fill up with Salúd in Shadyside, Sewickley, Oakland, Lawrenceville, Oakmont, and Aspinwall .
Here’s a shocker: the Pittsburgh Juice Company makes juice. But not just any juice. This local company prides themselves on 100% organic, cold-pressed juice. Produced in small batches, their ultra-healthy concoctions are freshly pressed every single day. Raw and unprocessed, it’s as natural as you can get! And if the cleansing properties of their juices aren’t enough, PJC is in the same building as Yoga Factory Pittsburgh, so you can sweat out the bad and drink up the good!
Rest assured, with Fresh From the Farm Juices, you’ll savor the refreshing flavor of locally-sourced Pittsburgh produce one sip at a time. These juices are cold-pressed, organic, raw, and unpasteurized (AKA the definition of healthy). And luckily, you can snag that farm fresh taste from 12 different locations across Pittsburgh. Find your go-to for those extra-busy days (hello, Spicy Lemonade!).
Brewed, blended, pressed, or squeezed, Delanie’s Coffee has you covered with any kind of beverage you can imagine. In addition to their namesake coffee, this South Side hot spot is stocked with fresh, healthy juices. For a caffeine-free pick-me-up, try out the Fatigue Fighter, or battle that pesky cold with the Immune Booster. If you plan to stick around for a bit, enjoy the local artwork that lines the walls as you’re served breakfast, lunch, or just a quick snack.
Okay, so the newest member of the Pittsburgh juice gang doesn’t just serve fresh-pressed health in a bottle, but the juice (and smoothies) they do serve are the BOMB. From their classic Green Giant to their Big Red, this new East Liberty fast casual joint is here to help you get in your daily dose of fruits and vegetables. And if you’re feeling a little sassy, go ahead and order a cold-pressed cocktail.
What’s so good about these juices? Well, GOODlife’s juices have four primary designs: hydrate, assimilate, alkalize, and radiate. That means it’s everyday liquid nutrition specially formulated to balance your body’s pH. Discover the nutrient-packed goodness of these juices at Piccadilly Artisan Yogurt in Mt. Lebanon, or order a batch online. You can also catch GOODlife at several local farmers markets in the summer months.
The Co-op café has something for everyone—something so crisp, so organic, and so crazy delicious that you’ll want to try their entire menu. Beware: the menu’s massive. Between the frozen smoothies and the fresh, made-to-order juice—like a Steel City Sunset or a Mean Joe Green—the combination of healthy ingredients really hits the spot. Slurp your smoothie or sip your juice while you shop around the market, full of local Burgh produce and goods.
GreenLight Juice keeps it simple (and delicious). Their recipe for juice is simple: strictly organic, cold-pressed, and served by people who really love juice. Take any bottle from their Squirrel Hill establishment, and you’ll find everything you’re drinking—from a variety of green juices to Beet Boost—has ingredients written right on the bottle. Fill up, and rest easy.
With locations in East Liberty and Wexford, the Clean Juice franchise is offering a refreshing take on health foods. 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!
