Seattle is stocked with prime juice and smoothie spots. Whether you’re looking for cold-pressed, caffeinated, or maca-infused, these go-to juice spots have you covered.
If you been to Bumbershoot music festival, an outdoor yoga class at Gas Works Park, or Bite of Seattle, then you’ve likely tried a sample of Pressed Juicery’s amazing cold-pressed drinks. Theirs come pre-bottled, making them a great grab-and-go option when you’re headed to the gym or in a time crunch but want a healthy snack. And unlike a lot of juiceries around, they also offer one-, three-, and five-day pre-packaged juice cleanses making them your go-to if you’re in need of a good detox. Just don’t leave without trying the surprisingly delicious "Turmeric Almond" blend featuring their signature vanilla almond milk paired cinnamon, black pepper, and turmeric. You can find them in Westlake Center, Capitol Hill, Queen Anne, and Bellevue Square.
When people just can’t get enough of your product, you know you’re onto something. Of course, that’s a good problem to have. It’s also exactly what happened to the juice cleanse business Kari Brunson and Brandin Myett started a few years back. From selling at the farmers market to a pop-up spot at Le Bete and now a 25-seat cafe in Capitol Hill, Juicebox is a Seattle favorite for juices, smoothies, or wellness shots. If you’re in the mood for a full-on meal, they have you covered there, too, offering veggie-centric dishes for breakfast, lunch, and weekend brunch.
With four locations spread throughout the Downtown Seattle area, chances are you'll come across one of Juicy Cafe's storefronts during your urban commute. Which is lucky because their PB + J smoothie is reason enough to stop by. Made with blueberry, strawberry, banana, raw, peanut butter, and mylk it's a sweet and filling treat you don't have to feel guilty about. But if an extra dose of greens is what you're after they also have plenty of juice concoctions that should do the trick, like the "Lucky 7" featuring jalapeños (for an extra kick), pineapple, cucumber, celery, spinach, kale, and lime.
With over 40 locations across the US, you’ve probably been to Emerald City if you’ve at all dabbled in the smoothie scene. It’s a fact that this place was started in Washington, which pretty much guarantees it a spot on this list. But its extensive smoothie selection doesn't hurt, either. The menu is packed with fresh-fruit blends and veggie-infused creations that you have to taste to believe. So stop by in the morning for a Sambazon with acai, strawberry, cranberry, and almond milk or a Mocha Bliss, we won't tell if you make up an excuse to swing by in the afternoon, too.
This vegan restaurant-meets-coffee shop—with locations in West Seattle, Queen Anne, and Greenwood—is known for mixing, mashing, and blending up a mean, healthy soy milk-based smoothie that you'll be craving long after you left the shop. Case in point: their absurdly tasty "Choco Maca" and "Avocad-O" delights, both of which are made with organic ingredients sourced from partners across the state of Washington. And when you need an extra boost, you can add organic vegan protein powder to any made-to-order smoothie. Oh, and did we mention they also offer fresh-pressed juices? Try the "Pure Bliss" and thank us later.

With plenty of menu options to choose from, you’re bound to find something to satisfy your taste buds. Chocolate craving? Try the "Chocolate My Heart". Tropical taste buds? Go for the "My Oh My". Good luck trying not to pop in every time you pass by one of their locations across the Seattle area.
At Fit Bar, they are all about raising the bar. So it should come as no surprise that at their West Seattle and Renton locations you’ll be greeted with a bevy of smoothie bowl options created with high-quality ingredients. Start your spoon into a classic acai bowl (they call it "The Brazilian") with banana, strawberry, blueberry, granola, or the not-so-typical "Admiral" bowl which features hemp hearts, goji berries, and mulberries, among other toppings. Either way, we guarantee you’ll be back for more.
Gluten- and dairy-free friends, this one’s for you! Everything at HeartBeet Organic Superfoods Cafe doesn’t include either and is super tasty to boot. They also earn bonus points for sneaking all sorts yummy, healthy superfoods into all of their creations.
