Check out these five places in Philadelphia to get fresh blended juices and smoothies.
932 South St.
Whole Foods shoppers can hydrate for their grocery excursion across the street at Sip-N-Glo, which offers juices and smoothies ranging from sweet options like the Heatwave — a special for July with watermelon, green tea, lime and mint — to the more adventurous Clean Green, with swiss chard, kale, dandelion greens, cucumber, chlorophyll and parsley.
Manakeesh Café and Bakery
4420 Walnut St.
If you can tear yourself away from the pastry counter packed with Lebanese treats, make your way to the Bliss Juices and Ice Cream section of this spacious restaurant/bakery/grocery store in West Philly for a lemonade with mint, a blended juice, or a fruit smoothie made with or without dairy. The smoothies are just two bucks on Tuesdays.
P.S. & Co.
1706 Locust St.
This gluten-free, vegan, kosher café/juice bar goes beyond quick bites with cooking workshops and prepared organic meals. The cold-pressed juices are designed for the health-conscious, with blends like the Ubud, a mix of lemon, apple, pineapple, ginger, cayenne and turmeric. Or go for a cold-pressed nut milk to compliment a cookie sandwich (P.S. stands for Pure Sweets).
Yellow Juice Bar
2046 Sansom St.
In need of a quick citrus fix? Head to Yellow for a lemon lime shot. The full-size drinks menu features simple sips, like fresh squeezed orange, carrot or grapefruit juice, and balanced fruit/vegetable blends, but you can also go heartier here: the Veggie Meal will fill you up with pineapple, kale, carrot, yogurt and peanut butter.
Four Seasons Juice Bar
51 N. 12th St.
Tucked inside Reading Terminal Market, Four Seasons offers freshly made fruit and veggie juices in a wide variety of combinations – or pick your own mix and add ginger or coconut for a flavor kick. If you’re feeling indecisive, you can’t go wrong with the carrot-cucumber-ginger juice. It’s cash only.
