Stripp’d Juice

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.

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.
