Don’t you hate how some places blend up frozen yogurt and sugary strawberries and call it a smoothie? We put together this list of all the best juice and smoothie spots in Denver for when you're craving something made from actual fruit and veggies, not just a glorified milkshake. Bottoms up!
If you find yourself just outside the city, you can get your juice fix at Nékter in Highlands Ranch or Greenwood Village. And lucky for city-dwellers, they’ve now set up shop in Denver too! There’s something for everyone with loads of different handcrafted juices, smoothies, and acai bowls—always clean and buzzing with the good stuff. For healthy on the go, try one of their bottled cold-pressed juices or take a six-bottle “vacation” with a Nékter Cleanse.
This may surprise you, but Pressed Juice Daily presses its juice daily. We know, we know—crazy talk. It's 100% raw and organic and available at three shops throughout the city: Capitol Hill, the Highlands, and South Broadway. Juices are categorized into greens, roots, and citrus, and can be combined in a variety of different cleanses depending on your goals. What happens to the waste from juicing, you ask? The leftover pulp at Pressed Juice Daily is composted and used for fertilizer in local gardens. FYI: Hours vary by location.
This superfood hot spot blends up all kinds of plant-based goodies, including organic cold-pressed juices. Hardcore juice drinker? Try the Spicy Greens. Want a healthier pre-workout supplement? Try theirs, blended up with beet, apple, carrot, ginger, and lemon. About to head over to a Flywheel class? You’ll want to hydrate (and turn heads) with their Pure Glacier Water, a naturally bright blue bev thanks to the addition of blue spirulina to coconut water, aloe water, spring water, lemon, and stevia. Find them at Union Station, plus Sloan's Lake and RiNo in 2020.
Ever wish you could create your own juice flavor without the work of doing the juicing yourself? Well you’re in luck. The Union Station Whole Foods features a 12-tap fresh-pressed juice bar where you can blend and mix to your heart’s content. And don’t worry—if you aren’t feeling creative (or fear you’ll mix up a big cup of fail) they’ll have plenty of recommendations for you.
The name says it all. Clean Juice serves up super-fresh, cold-pressed organic fruit and vegetable juice, made daily, right there in front of you. Stay and sip or grab and go—either way, you know it’s made from the best of the best. And if you feel like mixing it up, try one of their juice-based shots, a smoothie, or a blended bowl. You can find them on Steele St. in Cherry Creek or head down Colorado Blvd. to their 9th & CO location.
Where to even begin with Lacuna Juice and Yoga? Yes, you have the airy, minimalistic studio with a full schedule of signature Vinyasa and Hatha yoga classes. But whether you attend a class or not, you have to swing by their organic juice bar. This nourishing in-studio operation serves nut milks, smoothies, soups, salads, toasts, and more. And for juice, you'll find a full menu of cold-pressed concoctions named after precious gems (we like the zesty Topaz). Fitt Tip: you'll pay an extra $1 to get your juice in a glass bottle, but bring it back and they'll count that buck toward your next purchase.
Parsley has been juicing since before juicing was cool. The juice menu started with the still-popular Kate’s Kiss, made with organic kale, spinach, celery, parsley, carrot, and lemon. Though their juice menu has since expanded, the original inspiration remains. Simple and tasty smoothies are also on the menu: try the blueberry granola, with organic blueberries, banana, oats, walnuts, and yogurt. With only mid-day opening hours and everything made-to-order, Parsley definitely plays to the Golden Triangle lunch crowd.
A welcome addition to LoHi, ProsperOats offers both juices and bowls that are delicious, healthy, and portable. The build-your-own bowls start with your choice of base (steel cut oats, oats and quinoa, yogurt, or açaí). Then add your sweetener and load on the toppings (protein powder, fruits, seeds, etc.). Admittedly, it’s easy to go a little overboard, but it’s even easier to keep it healthy. Bonus: almost all of ProsperOats' ingredients and paper products are sourced from Colorado companies (yay, local!).
Whole Nectar wants you to be aware of the “extremely low amount of B.S. in everything they produce.” Yep, that’s a good thing. Choose from fresh-pressed juices, detox and ginger shots, hot oat bowls, smoothies, and smoothie bowls (topped with Denver’s own Udi’s granola, of course!). Check ‘em out for breakfast, lunch, or a healthy snack right in the middle of downtown.
Bringing their love from New Orleans, Superfood Bar set up shop in LoHi with the mission to make healthy eating accessible to everyone, while supporting the local economy by sourcing only the best local and organic ingredients. In addition to their gluten-free, vegan, and raw breakfast and lunch menu, they’ve got an impressive list of smoothies and juices full of nutrient-dense fruits, veggies, and superfoods. You’re gonna feel real good leaving this place.
This Boulder-born real food gem in Greenwood Village is all about whole, fresh ingredients. At Zeal, you can hang out in the cozy space, try one of their organic cold-pressed juices, or play the sample game and grab a flight of all of them. Love ’em? You can surely grab some to go! And for more liquid nutrition, try one of Zeal’s creative smoothies like the Green Alkalizer, made with spinach, kale, avocado, ginger, chia, cinnamon, dates, green juice, and your choice of almond, hemp, or coconut milk. What's extra cool about Zeal? Since 2016, they've operated a small farm north of Boulder where they grow organic produce for their menu. It can't get any fresher than that!
With stores in both Park Hill and Stapleton (at Stanley Marketplace), you’re never too far from some of The Juicing Tree’s raw, organic, cold-pressed juice. You won’t be limited to the usual juice suspects, either; the Juicing Tree gets creative with their juicers to concoct unconventional and seasonal picks. Bottoms up with the Yogi, made with pineapple, granny smith, turmeric, ginger, and lemon, or try the summer-themed watermelon and mint. Want more than juice? The Juicing Tree also offers a variety of nut milks, infused waters, and shots/boosters. But listen up: a limited amount of juice is made fresh daily, so be sure to catch them before they sell out and close up shop.
This Atlanta-based superfood chain finally made its way west and has settled in the Highlands. The health-focused spot serves up all sorts of eats, but their cold-pressed juices, smoothies, and shots land it a well-deserved spot on this list. Whether you’re looking for a post-workout protein hit or a mid-morning immunity boost, Kale Me Crazy has you covered.
It’s safe to say, the way we conquer our daily routines has changed drastically over the last few months. The way we perform our jobs, how we socialize—even the way we workout—have flipped from in-person, group settings to virtual platforms to keep us safe and healthy. There's no denying that navigating this new normal has certainly come with its ups and downs, to say the least. In fact, a recent survey revealed one-third of Americans said this pandemic has caused more stress and anxiety in their lives, which isn’t surprising given the circumstances.
With anxiety levels at a high, people need relaxation, self-care, and movement more than ever. Enter yoga.

It seems poetic that Chicago hits our number one spot on this list because it was the first city in America that was introduced to yoga back in 1893. Swami Vivekananda presented yoga at the World Parliament of Religions and made a speech on the concept of body, spirit, and mind. It seems the presentation made a lasting impression on the city.
