Remember the good old days when “juicing” meant using anabolic steroids?
Now juicing literally means drinking juice. And lots of it.
Juice bars and smoothie shops started popping up in 2013, and today juicing is the hottest trend to hit fruits and veggies since the Thanksgiving cornucopia. In fact, the juice bar and smoothie business generated $2 billion dollars in 2015.
Are you ready to start juicing?
Let’s take a look at your top choices for Juice Bars and Smoothies in Lake Travis:
If you’re looking to try a juice cleanse for the first time or you’re a juicing pro, Daily Juice near Best Buy at Shops in the Galleria is where you want to be.
Daily Juice sells fresh juice that’s cold-processed which means heat never enters the equation. Veggies like kale, spinach, and ginger are crushed and chopped to extract the micro-nutrients inside.
Daily Juice is all about raw juices, so you get the live enzymes your body craves. The ones you won’t find in store-bought juices.
They sell a large variety of nutrient-packed Ready2Blend smoothie squares you can make at home in about 1 minute. This means you don’t have to buy all of the ingredients yourself and spend 20 minutes trying to blend the perfect concoction. And if you’ve ever tried and failed, it sure is expensive and frustrating when you make a smoothie at home that makes you go, “meh.”
When you’re in the mood for blending it up with plenty of flavor options and add ins, JuiceLand has you covered. JuiceLand serves up fresh juices, smoothies, hot drinks shots, and grab & go vegan meals. If you’re a Carrot Tumeric kind of guy or a Wheatgrass kind of girl, it’s easy to get your nutrition fix.
I gotta admit, I’m a big fan of JuiceLand smoothies. The Originator is my favorite post-workout treat. It’s like a liquid peanut butter and jelly sandwich with a dash of flax oil and sprinkle of spirulina.
One of the reasons JuiceLand smoothies are so flavorful is because they use fresh fruits, organic vegetables, and always opt for locally-sourced when they can. Plus, the juice they use in their smoothies is cold-pressed.
One of Lake Travis’ favorite new spots to grab lots of green is MAD Greens located in Oaks at Lakeway. It goes without saying they can transform produce into more than salads, wraps and sandwiches — they can juice it too. MAD Greens proudly uses raw fruits and veggies to create flavorful and healthy juices.
You can eat better and drink better with seven different juice options: Green Detox, Bright Buzz, Beat It, Mint Cooler, Wake Up!, and Mad Greenie to name a few. All of them have specific health benefits in mind whether it’s detoxing or a creation to kick-start your morning.
Forget the overwhelming menu options — all juices are 16oz and $6.50. Ahhh, simplicity is good.
The name of this smoothie shop pretty much sums up its history. In 1973, Steve Kuhnau created — yes, founded — the first smoothie bar. He did this out of necessity. He wanted to combat food allergies and health conditions, so he started mixing up various recipes in his blender at home. His health improved so dramatically, he just had to share his smoothies.
Smoothie King now has locations throughout the US and around the world. The mission of Smoothie King is to impact millions of lives with the power of a nutritious lifestyle, not just for adults but for kids too.
In addition to wellness blends, slim blends and fitness blends, Smoothie King offers Kids’ Cups especially crafted for today’s youngsters with multi-vitamin enhancers and electrolytes. If you can’t get ’em to eat their veggies, perhaps they’ll drink ’em.
