Here’s a recommendation of London’s top juice bars you should visit. With there being an increase in the nation’s love for liquid nutrition, here we’ll blend up for you some of the best places in London town to grab a sit down juice, or one to have on the go. From super green and really healthy juices to milk-based creamy and delicious ingredients, Juice bars now more than ever before are delivering an array of adventurous and exciting drink recipes to keep the health-conscious intrigued, excited and wanting more.
Joe & The Juice Bar, Hampstead, Soho and Oxford Circus, London.
Joe & The Juice bar is a lot more than a place to hang out to get your quick drink health fixes. It has an upbeat, lively atmosphere (with lots of tunes playing pretty loudly) and friendly bar staff that possess a certain type of laidback-cool vibe to them. In terms of their juices, some of their most popular options are the ‘Pick Me Up’, a raspberry banana and apple juice, the ‘Go Away Doc’ that contains apples, carrots and ginger – all great ingredients for maintaining your wellbeing, and ‘Hangover Heaven’ a juice that has Orange, Elderflower and Mint in – delicious.
The seating arrangement at Joe & The Juice bar is really relaxed and comfortable, with an option of leather seats, or leather cosy sofas. There is plenty of space to chat, work, relax and of course, chill out. Although their Juices are delicious, they do not have a big range of green juices to pick from. Their ‘Arth, Away’ juice is the nearest Juice they have to an all green one and is a great pick when you’re in need of a quick energy boost.
Juice Baby, Chelsea, London.
Every nutritionist and yogi comes to this Juice bar! Juice Baby uses high – quality, certified organic ingredients in their juices and smoothies. The bar’s décor is minimalist with their simple black and white colour pattern, and clinical style lighting. They have a huge chalkboard on their walls which is visually pleasing.
Want a Juice to help you feel cleansed? Try ‘The Green Glow’ that contains apple, cucumber, celery, leafy greens, lemon and ginger – ideal juice for cleansing and detoxifying your body. If you prefer a juice after a workout or after an intense session of studying, try ‘The Chai Spiced Maca’ which includes figs, bananas, maca, chai spice, pink Himalayan salt, cinnamon and coconut nectar – delicious. Their chilled and refrigerated creamy cacao milk and vanilla latte drinks are the perfect picks when you’re in the need of a sweet and desert-like tasting drink.
Supernatural, Canary Wharf, Oxford Circus & Piccadilly Circus, London.
Dan Thompson, a creative and successful mixologist, realised his interest and passion for Juices was more than just a trend, so he launched Supernatural. Our top pick of juice is their ‘The Forever Young’ juice contains kale, beetroot, mint, celery, carrot and alkalising aloe vera which helps with food and drink digestion.
Juice Tonic, Soho, London.
The owner of Juice Tonic (who is a nutritionist and health coach), has put together a Juice menu that is guaranteed to fix almost any health problem. All you health addicts will be happy to know that organic produce is a priority at this Juice bar, unlike some other establishments. One of the cool things about this Juice bar is that they’re big on their consumers customising their drinks – by having extra ingredients added to their Juices. Green superfoods and botanical boosters are a popular choice amongst costumers.
The ‘Green Power’ smoothie is a good recommendation from their menu. It contains freshly pressed organic apple juice, banana, pineapple, kale, maca, hemp protein, spirulina, chia seeds and xylitol! This rich green vitamin bursting juice tastes super healthy, is full of fibre and packs a punch of protein – all your goodies in one drink.
When it comes to picking your ingredients for the perfect juice drink, avoid choosing sweet fruits only – why not try including a green, leafy vegetable in there too for variety and to give the base of your drink something strong. For a tasty, filling and nutritious breakfast, why not try a smoothie with protein powder, nut butter and/ or nut milk. Protein powder is a great ingredient to have before a workout session or before revision as it gets both your mind and body super active.
