Attention all juice heads! Not got time to bullet each morning? Need a quick pick-me-up that’s healthier and more wholesome than a hit of caffeine? We’ve rounded up the best cold-pressed green juices available across Dublin.
Sitting pretty along Grafton Street, you couldn’t find a more central juice bar than perched atop BT2. Try the ‘Mean Green’ at Alchemy Juice Co. packed with kale, spinach, cos lettuce, celery, cucumber, flat leaf parsley, apple, lemon, ginger and mint. They don’t call it ‘the patron saint of eternal youth’ for nothing! All of Alchemy’s juices are also sold in recycled glass bottles. Green for you; green for the planet. Winner, winner, kale for dinner.
Sprout & Co. are killing it with their eight flavours of fresh, cold-pressed juice using pretty much all the local, seasonal Irish produce they can possibly get their hands on. You can pick up their juices up in locations across the city or in any of the Avoca branches. Better yet, they’re available in our deliveries! Try the Supergreen (kale, spinach, parsley, celery, cucumber, apple/pear, ginger) or the Supa Dupa Green with added spirulina and wheatgrass. Get your chlorophyll fix from these guys…
The Juice Store: Newly-opened in the Royal Hibernian Way on Dawson Street, these guys take juicing to another level. Not only are they organic, their range is entirely freshly-made in a bladeless juicer retaining all the cold-pressed goodness without losing any nutrients. Go for No.7, also called Power Greens Plus, loaded with Pak choi, spinach, apple, broccoli sprouts, avocado, wheatgrass and lemon.
Counter Culture: Nestled in Powerscourt Townhouse, hit these guys up for the Green Goddess for an absolute steal – €4. Kale, celery, cucumber and spinach, sweetened with a little agave and topped up with Tipperary sparkling water; that Monday morning hangover in work will be solved in mere sips with this one!
Ideal for the suits in the city’s financial district, Freshii, a clean eating fast casual concept from Canada, has landed at the CHQ building in the Docklands. the Mighty Detox Juice, is as sharp as it is sweet with pineapple, celery, ginger, cucumber and apple.
Brother Hubbard: We can’t get enough of their breakie and lunch dishes, but Bro Hubbard on Capel Street and its sister site, Sister Sadie on Harrington Street, also have freshly-pressed juices too. We love the Clean Green (kale, spinach, cucumber, ginger, mint, lemon, apple).
This should be called the Urban Hulk, we think, from our friends at Urban Health juice bar and cafe in Ranelagh. Jam packed with muscley stuff, sip this apple, cucumber, avocado, pineapple and spirulina drink that’s packed with healthy vitamins, minerals, healthy fats and protein. Part blended (pineapple, avocado, spirulina) and part juiced, this is the perfect energy-boosting and ultra-hydrating. Chug, chug, chug.
Greenbeards: Popeye would be proud of this one – cucumber, lettuce, parsley, chard, spinach, kale and wild nettle. A celebration of Irish greens, this boosts your energy, will help to lower cholesterol and is rich in vitamin C and anti-oxidants. Cold-pressed and organic, pick these up at the Green Beards pop-up shop on Baggot Street or slurp alongside super healthy salads, soups and sambos at Cocu, Eathos, KC Peaches or Blazing Salads.
Staple Foods: Slide along to their café in Temple Bar or test out their new second site on Grattan Street and horse this into you: kale, cucumber, apple, lemon, chia seed and mint.
Jump Juice Bars: With kiosks across Dublin and beyond, you’re never really far from a Jump juice bar. Handy and healthy, try the Green Genes with kale, cucumber, spinach, apple, celery and added wheatgrass.
