Green-Tastic Juices to Try
If our office refrigerator is any indication, juicing is a practice that’s gone beyond the health nuts. It’s also a practice that’s gone beyond cleansing. Supplement one meal with a juice when you’re feeling the need, or replace your afternoon coffee with an energizing green drink, instead. Point is: You can be loose with your juicing.
Juice bars around the country are cold-pressing locally sourced produce and bottling the results, ensuring that the flavor is as friendly and balanced as the health benefits. The ones we’ve listed below are tried and true for both reasons. So make like us—and some other people at Yahoo—and drink your vegetables.
Kure’s “Staycation” tastes uber-healthy but also bright and sweet. In other words, it’s so good that, sure, you drink it for the body benefits, but you actually look forward to tasting it. It contains kale, apple, cilantro, and pineapple, and will basically make you feel like you have superpowers.

Parsley is one of the highest sources of chlorophyll, which acts like iron to oxidize the blood. (The herb is New York chef Seamus Mullen’s secret weapon for fighting rheumatoid arthritis.) And you can find a heavy dose of it in Portland Juice Press’s “Dharma,” a drink that also contains kale, spinach, apple and lemon. Find it on the company’s website, along with delivery options in the Portland area.
The very straightforwardly named Juice Shop has five locations in the Bay Area and also delivers its cold-pressed juices seven days week in San Francisco and Marin. “Liver Green,” our favorite of its offerings, contains celery, cucumber, dandelion greens, lemon, and burdock, a medicinal root that can soothe tummies and ease joint pain.
EZ Green is also easy drinking, thanks to generous amounts of lemon juice and ginger. It also contains apple, celery, cucumber, kale, spinach, romaine, and parsley, meaning this is definitely a meal-replacement juice. Project Juice’s online shop lets you mix it in with any other juice of your choosing to create your own pack of six, plus the company has three brick-and-mortar locations in the Bay Area.
