(Juice cleanse @Revolucion)
I’m a major fan of juices and smoothies. And what’s not to love? They’re fresh, healthy and energizing, and you can combine ingredients to your own taste. There are lots of juice bars in Houston, what are your favorite spots? Here you can find mine!
Revolucion in the Heights
More and more hipster hotspots are being added to the Houston Heights. One of the most recent additions is Revolucion Coffee & Juice Bar on W 11th Street, the perfect spot to top up your vitamin levels. On the menu of Revolucion you find cold pressed juices, juice shots and not milk (nut milk mixed with delicious ingredients). Their mission is simple: offer great tasting healthy products made to order. That also goes for the detox options they offer; for my recent 3-day juice cleanse they adjusted the order to my goals and taste to make it as effective and tasty as possible.
Beet Box Blend Bar in River Oaks
Beet Box Blend Bar in Houston specializes in blends made of whole, organic fruits, veggies and other natural ingredients. They say that their ingredients “not only taste dreamy together, but they also nourish your body and give you lots of energy”. Besides drinks, they also serve daily homemade soup and the popular acai bowls. Read my blog about this hotspot.

Juice Girl in the Heights
Located on 19th Street in the Heights, this cute juice bar offers more than the standard juices and smoothies. Juice Girl is know for its delicious Acai Bowls of which they offer three variations. My favorite? The Tropical Acai with the acai blend, pineapple, spirulina, banana, strawberry, granola, pecans, coconut, and honey. Good to know: everything on the menu is made from organic ingredients, making it the only 100% organic juice & smoothie bar in town.
Flow Juice Bar in River Oaks
Flow Juice Bar was announced Best Juice Bar in Houston by the HoustonPress in 2015 and is the perfect place to top up your vitamin levels. All their smoothies contain 5 to 7 servings of fruit and vegetables and their juices even 8 to 10 so your body gets the fruits and veggies it needs in a quick, easy and tasty way. Flow is located in the Equinox Gym in River Oaks. You can conveniently pick up a healthy drink right after your workout, but you don’t have to be an Equinox member to get to Flow.
Nourish Juice Bar in Montrose
This place is perfect for picking up your healthy drink on the go, but you can also easily take your laptop to study or work while sipping from your green mean machine. Besides juices and smoothies, Nourish Juice Bar also offers acai bowls and cleanse packages. Read my blog about this hotspot.

Juiceland in the Heights
Are you craving a healthy juice or smoothie? Visit Juiceland! This popular juice spot from Austin also opened a shop in the Houston Heights serving delicious fresh smoothies, juices, and superfood. Feeling sporty? Combine it with a visit to Black Swan Yoga, conveniently located in the same building. Read my blog about this hotspot.
True Food Kitchen in Galleria
True Food Kitchen is an absolute must-visit for those who enjoy healthy juices, natural drinks, and freshly prepared meals. I love their green Tropi-Kale Smoothie and the AB&J Smoothie with almond milk, date, banana, and almond butter! They are only served on the weekend, but during the week you can still order one of their natural refreshers like the Watermelon Coconut Soda and the Kale-Aid with kale, apple, cucumber, celery, lemon & ginger. Read my blog about this hotspot.
Sustain Juicery in Bellaire
This cute little juice bar in Bellaire aims to create an intimate organic vibe and encourages customers to sit down and relax or have a chat with one of their juicetenders. Besides detoxifying juices and whole fruit smoothies, Sustain Juicery offers power shots, wellness cocktails, juice cleanses, and you can build your own acai or pitaya bowl. The items on their menu are mostly made to order, but they also have bottled juices available in case you’re in a hurry. Tip: keep your bottle after you finish you drink for a $1 off on your next drink!
