Agra Culture is filled with healthy drinks and eats, and conveniently presses at four different spots around the city. Whether you’re in the mood for a filling smoothie, or a refreshing raw juice, this is your place! Looking for your daily dose of super foods? Try the "Antioxy"with organic blueberry, raspberry, strawberry, dates, and coconut milk. Want a jolt of caffeine in your morning smoothie? Give the "Nutty Espresso" a whirl. Plus, all drinks are made dairy-free with almond or coconut milk. And you can even add an extra dose of probiotics!
Keep your digestive system healthy and your inflammation in check with Green Bee’s special combinations of antioxidant-rich fruits and veggies. Sip on the “Turmeric Glow” or “Happy Belly” as you power through your day. Need more? We thought you might.

Who doesn’t love a good workday lunch spot? Especially one that also has smoothies! Grab your co-workers and stop by Crisp & Green in any of their locations across the area for some mid-day grub.

That’ll help prevent dipping into the snack drawer or office candy bowl!
This South Minneapolis spot has quickly become a neighborhood favorite for fresh juices and smoothie bowls. What started as a food truck is now a bustling brick-and-mortar and a go-to for energizing drinks. Get that spring in your step by adding one of Whole Sum’s popular “boosters” to your drink. Think spirulina, matcha tea, and flax, chia, and hemp seeds galore! Whole Sum even offers juice cleanse packages for your detox needs.
Tao doubles as a small grocery store and cafe, and even offers holistic health services and classes. But the real MVPs of this Uptown spot are the fresh juice blends and “potions”. Choose your beverage—and all of the health benefits that follow—based on its name! Stay energized with the "Alive" or get a natural glow with "Radiance" (ginger explosion). And for a warm and soothing drink on a cold Minnesota morning, try the "Sun" — a crazy-flavorful turmeric latte.
