My first job at 15 years old was at the Smoothie King on Alton road. As a result, I have always been a smoothie connosieur of sorts, constantly on the look out for the best smoothies. After a recent discovery, I can happily announce that the search has ended – Jugo Fresh officially earns the crown for the best smoothie on the beach.
Located on 20th St. (between West Ave. & Alton Rd.), Jugo Fresh is an organic juice bar/smoothie bar in the hot new area off purdy Lounge. This spot is unlike any other juice or smoothie bar in that it uses a cold-press system that can take up to 45 minutes for just one serving of juice! The result is an unpasteurized and “alive” juice that contains five times as many nutrients as regular juice.
Despite having a menu with more than 20 beverages, I think it could use one or two more “mainstream” fruit options…but the bottom line is that these “foodie”-style smoothie blends are delicious and nutritious. They’re on the pricier side but definitely worth the price tag.
Other mentionables include a cool vibe and very knowledgeable staff that is more than happy to answer any of your questions about the blends and their ingredients. And if you’re looking for a way to detox, Jugo Fresh also features a 3-day juice cleanse with free delivery on Miami Beach.
Conveniently located right next to Foot Works (an amazing running store) and just around the corner from Green Monkey (my favorite yoga studio..post coming soon), Jugo Fresh is the perfect post-yoga smoothie/juice spot.
