Philadelphia Juice Bar opened inside 12th Street Gym this week, with a menu of organic juices and smoothies packed with superfoods galore.
The menu changes regularly, but right now you’ll find four juices and four smoothies: Read more »
Last week, we asked you guys to spill the beans on where we could find the best smoothies and juices around Philly and, man, did you have a lot of opinions! You all gave shout outs to a ton of spots: Sook Hee’s Produce, Stripp’d Juice, and P.S. & Co., just to name a few (hop on over here to check out all the comments). And you were nice enough to list off some of your go-to orders from favorites like The Juice, Sip-N-Glo, Gangster Vegan Organics, and more. Below, a list of must-try juices and smoothies around Philly, as chosen by you.

A juice rut: ever been in one? Be Well editor Emily and I were just chatting about how we are both at a loss for new juices and smoothies to try around town. And the thing that makes being in a juice rut tougher than, say, an ice cream rut, is the fact that juice is an investment: A single-serving of cold-pressed green juice can run you upward of $10. And if it tastes like grass pulled from a lawnmower, welp, you’re out of 10 bucks for no good reason. Which is why we tend to stick to our favorites, and now find ourselves smack dab in the middle of a full-blown juice rut.
But we want to expand our juice horizons, which is where you guys come in. We want to know: What’s the absolute best, must-try juice or smoothie Philly has to offer? When we asked you guys about the best veggie burger in Philly, you came through big time. And we know you’ve got plenty of opinions on the subject of juice, so let’s here ‘em. Ready, set, comment!

You may have seen Khoran Horn at Urban Yoga Philly a few weeks back, or maybe at DIG Yoga in Queen Village earlier this month. You may have even tried his juices (lucky you!).
The 31-year-old foodie/entrepreneur, who lives in Fishtown, has been quietly popping up around town lately, slinging his new line of cold-pressed juices at various fitness events and studios in an effort to get the word out about his brand, Stripp’d Cold-Pressed Juice. So, obviously, I needed to know more about it.
Consider Thursday’s lunch plans covered: This year, Philadelphia magazine is opening a few of the annual Best of Philly food categories up for taste tests, and you are invited! The three categories being tested are Best Whoopie Pie, Best Tomato Pie and—drumroll, please—Best Juice. Mmmmm….
Philadelphia magazine editors have chosen the top four contenders in each category—the spots competing for Best Juice are Sip-N-Glo, Yellow Juice Bar, Sook Hee’s Produce and Pangea Juice & Co.—and tomorrow they will be doling out free samples from each nominee so that YOU can cast your ballot for Best of Philly. To snag a lunch of free juice, tomato pies and whoopee pies (yes, please!), all you’ve got to do is show up at the lower level of the Comcast Center (near the food court) around noon tomorrow and get your taste test on.
I have at least one Sip-N-Glo obsessed coworker who will be psyched to hear that the South Street juicery’s bottled juices and smoothies are now available at Di Bruno Bro.’s locations in Rittenhouse and the Franklin. Twitter proof below.
Warm weather is a comin’, friends. Finally! And along with trading in my Uggs for, well, anything else, I’ll also be trading in my hot-apple-cider habit for a cold-fresh-pressed-juice addiction. Who’s with me?
If you raised your hand, you’ll love our latest creation: A handy-dandy map of juice bars throughout Philadelphia. (We were inspired by the folks over at Well + Good who created this jam-packed map of NYC juice shops.) We’ve included every juice bar we could find in the Philadelphia area that serves fresh-pressed juice, made to order. So, never again will you wander the streets in search of a freshly-squeezed glass of juice: Next time a craving hits, simply head over to this map and find a spot to quench your thirst.
Good news, Shamrock Shake lovers—Philly’s Sip-N-Glo Juicery just debuted a healthier alternative to your Mickey D’s fave.
The Bella Vista juice cafe is now serving up a new minty smoothie just in time for St. Paddy’s day. Called the Lucky Clover, it only has five ingredients, including fresh mint leaves, raw vanilla beans, cashews, bananas and almond milk.
“But it’s not the same!” you say. I know, I know. But just in case you forgot, your good friend the Shamrock Shake isn’t doing you any favors in the calorie department, and it features a laundry list of weird ingredients, including the oh-so-green Shamrock Shake Syrup that contains color additives like Yellow 5 and Blue 1. So hey, the Lucky Clover it’s more than worth a shot, right? And who knows, you might even get lucky with this one—lame pun intended.
You know how a candy gram works, right? Here’s a refresher:
If you packed a “healthy” juice for your mid-afternoon snack, then this video is sure to ruin your day. (Don’t feel too bad, I did it, too.) Sure, juice is packed with healthy vitamins, fiber and tons of other good stuff, but it’s also loaded with sugar. Like, so many cookies worth of sugar. Ack!
But don’t swear off juice quite yet: Local juice spot Pure Sweets is here to save the day!
