Try something different for a cold treat on a hot summer day and hit up one of Edmonton’s local juice bars! Among the menus of each juicery you can find several fresh fruit and vegetable options, creamy smoothies, and add-ons (or “shots”) like protein, wheatgrass, ginger, or turmeric.
These ice-cold treats are a great healthy alternative on a hot day and can leave you feeling energized, invigorated, and ready for more summer fun.
The Neo juices come sold as single bottles, differently themed packages, or as smaller shots all made with organically grown ingredients. When you join their juice club, you also have the option to customize your flavours through a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, and other ingredients. Their established flavours come with uniquely-YEG names like My Way or the Henday (minty ginger taste), Glxy Land (one of their sweetest juices), or the Rvr Valley (apple, lemon, and celery).
Neo Juicery: 10062 151 St. NW, Edmonton
You can order a host of cold-pressed juices from Glow as well as all-natural household items, raw-ingredient snacks, or their own almond Mylk. A must-try flavour comes from their 2021 seasonal special, Glow Guava, or give their traditional juices a try: Citrus includes a blend of orange, lemon, ginger, and coconut water; Sky is a sweet combo of pear, cucumber, peppermint, lemon, and mint; or for a sweeter juice, try Glow’s Earthy with apple and beets.
Glow Juicery: 10330 80 Ave. NW, Edmonton
These fresh drinks are more of a smoothie than a glass of juice, but just like the cold-pressed establishments, Moo uses organic and fresh fruits and vegetables. Power up with a Kale or Spinach smoothie, or sweeten your order by trying Moo’s shakes, or a Sweet Almond Kale smoothie.
Moo’s Juice: 12410 167 Ave. NW, Edmonton
