Austin is all about the great outdoors and when it comes to sunshine, we have plenty to spare. After spending a day at Zilker Park, swimming in Barton Springs or kayaking Lady Bird Lake, cool down with a refreshing snack at one of our many fresh juice bars around town. Remember, vacation doesn’t have to be all about greasy foods; hydrate and cleanse with a healthy juice or smoothie! Here are some of our favorite places to find fresh-pressed juices and smoothies in Austin.
Located inside the Casa De Luz village, Alchemy serves up juices for those looking for internal healing or just a yummy treat. Each 16 oz. bottle of Alchemy juice contains two pounds of fresh, organic produce. Their therapeutic juices range from simple blends like spirulina, lemon and apple to more adventurous options like their Morning Tonic with apple cider vinegar, cayenne and butterfly pea powder.
