After getting my sweat on in a spin class, I am dying for an ice cold juice. Juice has so many great health benefits, and helps restore important nutrients depleted during a class. Luckily, in LA, there seems to be a juice bar strategically placed within a few blocks of every spin studio. Below is a list of some of my favorites.
With locations all throughout the city and continually growing, Pressed Juicery caters to any and all pressed juice addictions. This is one of the more reasonably priced juice bars, and they are all about convenience. They deliver right to your door, and if you’re in the Malibu area, there’s a juice truck parked on PCH. Come for their juicery “Happy Hour” and try samples of their seasonal favorites.
From Downtown to the beach, Juice Crafters offers the usual variety of pressed juices, and also healthy smoothies that make for a great meal replacement. Their Acai bowls are out of this world, and they just opened Acai Nation in the Palisades, which serves any type of Acai bowl you might fancy. Be sure to try their wellness shots, such as E3 Live and the Liquid Light.
Kreation Café is known for their vast variety of juices, but they also have a fabulous array of post-workout snacks. The reason I love Kreations’s juices is because they aren’t as sweet as most others. They have real raw kombucha in a tonic jar and any type of wellness drink you can imagine. But it’s the zen garden ambiance that will keep you coming back.
Nekter is one of the more reasonably priced juice bars in town, but that doesn’t mean they lack in quality or taste. Nekter is all about the juice. There’s no pomp or trendiness to this place, they’re just there to get you healthy. The Chocolate Dream is just that… a dream, and it will satisfy you even after the most extreme workout.
