It’s a new year, which means it’s a new you, right? Yeah, we’ve all heard the expression ad nauseum, but if you’re someone that is taking that phrase to heart this year and want to see your health improve while slamming delicious drinks on the regular, check out these smoothie and juice bars in metro Detroit.
Located on Livernois Ave. in Detroit, Blessed & Highly Favored Juice Bar has been around since 2010, making juice products that promote healthy living. B&HF not only has several speciality smoothies and raw, fresh juices, but also offers food catering for breakfast or lunch.
As you have no doubt gathered by its name, Urge Cold Pressed Raw Juice specializes in a method of juicing called “cold press.” In this method, a hydraulic press is used to extract juice from fresh produce without the use of heat or oxidation. The result is a more nutrient-rich juice. You can find Urge in Berkley and Northville.
In addition to a menu of delicious, fresh smoothies, smoothie bowls and more, GO! Smoothies also offers corporate wellness coaching and group workshops to those interested in learning how to live well and how to properly take part in a juice cleanse. If you head over to GO! Smoothies’ shop, you’ll find pre-assorted cleanse packages as well as men’s & women’s “vitality packs, the latter of which are designed to target common areas of concern in men’s & women’s health, respectively.
As its name suggests, Pure Raw Juice Delivery delivers freshly made juices within 20 miles of Ferndale (its home). Pickup options are also available, but the main thing to take away from PRJD is that it isn’t a typical storefront where you walk in and order a beverage. You order ahead of time and either pick it up at its Ferndale location or have them deliver it to you for an additional fee.
If followed properly, consuming a raw, vegan diet is entirely possible. Michael Severance, Marc Dobaczewski and Natalia Castro opened Try it Raw in 2012 after Severance and Castro were introduced to a raw food cafe in Miami, Florida. In addition to plenty of juices and smoothies, Try it Raw features a menu of vegan entrees, like “Los Tacos,” zucchini “noodles,” nori rolls and more.
When it comes to the fresh juice and smoothie movement, Cafe Succo offers the essentials plus something called an acai bowl. Using pureed acai berries, blended with fresh berries and granola, an acai bowl has tons of nutrients that can help you burn fat, slow aging and lower high cholesterol.
