Not getting enough kale, beetroot or spirulina? Wondering where to get the best post workout boost? With more juice bars popping up than coffee shops across the capital, we’ve rounded up the five best places to stay hydrated the healthy way.
Roots & Bulbs
One of the UK’s first cold-pressed juice bars, Roots & Bulbs offers a range of vegetable based juices that are designed to be as practical, organic and nutritious as possible. Divided into two groups, Greens and Carrot and numbered depending on fruit content and sweetness levels, this is the ideal place to get your greens on-the-go. A G1 juice (celery, kale, cucumber) is filled with enough vitamins A and K to keep you going all day.
What To Order? For a pre-workout boost order the Smart Smoothie, a healthy take on coffee with added cacao, coconut water and dates.
The brainchild of Aida Foustok, who trained with raw food chef, Matthew Kenney in California, the newest addition to London’s health scene offers an organic, cold-pressed juice for every taste. Each bottle has been designed for a particular need; from the Awaken packed with cayenne pepper for an energy boost to Sweet Beets, for the less traditional juice connoisseur.
What To Order? The three green options; we love the Skin Balm packed full of ingredients to boost the complexion. Plus, if you fancy a snack on the side the refined sugar-free take on caramel shortbread is not to be believed.
The Juice Well
Founded by Joe Cross, star of documentary, ‘Sick, Fat and Nearly Dad,’ The Juice Well boasts a range of superfood smoothies, cold-pressed juices and healthy snacks. With more unusual concoctions than other juice bars, try the Hunger Buster, made with chia gel, galia melon, vanilla extract and new superfood on the block, charcoal.
What To Order? The Anti Bloat Tonic, with fennel, pear, ginger and lemon is the perfect post-lunch pick me up.
Based in the heart of London, this organic cafe uses the Norwalk Press, the Rolls Royce of the juicing world to create a range of cold-pressed delights. Having studied nutrition in New York, founder Marco Proietti created a place where customers can create their own custom made juices by mixing and matching ingredients.
What To Order? Tailor your own juice to suit every need and health issue from curing a cold to a detox. The Body Fuel, with Beetroot, Carrot and Acerola Cherry is a sweet, energy boost.
The Good Life Eatery
Spotted the queues on Sloane Avenue every weekend? This in-demand healthy eating hub makes all of their cold-pressed juices on site each day. Inspired by LA’s health scene, founders Yasmin Larizadeh and Shirin Kouros have combined gourmet cooking with superfoods to create a menu of tasty juices and the best salads around.
What To Order? The Good Life Eatery is worth a visit for the name of their juices alone, the spinach and kale rich Dr. Green Love is a sweet, zesty treat that is not to be missed.
