The 949’s Best Juiceries
The juice craze has been on the rise, especially in Southern California, for quite some time. While many have already explored Orange County’s multiple juice shops, some are still behind on the trend. Fortunately for them, I’ve compiled a collection of the best local juiceries so everyone can experience these delicious and delightfully refreshing drinks.
Juicery #1: Nekter Juice Bar
With multiple locations spanning Newport Beach, Irvine and Costa Mesa, Nekter’s menu includes individual juice drinks, smoothies, and variations of the ever popular Banzai bowl. In addition to their walk-up menu, expansive juice cleanses are available for order online and in store.
Recommended juices: The Greenie (parsley, spinach, kale, celery, cucumber, lemon and apple) & The Cure (beet, broccoli, kale, parsley, celery, grapes and apple)

Juicery #2: Whole Foods Market
It is no secret that Whole Foods Market stores are health food meccas. Complete with cheese bars, pizza stations, and an elaborate array of hot and cold, ready-to-eat meal options, Whole Foods surely knows how to serve their customers. And they are not leaving juice-heads out of the mix! The Newport Beach Whole Foods location contains a fully operating jucie bar that has a menu that can compete with established juiceries throughout the county. Although on the pricier side, these juices are freshly pressed right before your eyes and won’t disappoint.
Recommended juices: Dr. Oz (apples, celery, spinach, ginger, lemon, and cucumber)

Juicery #3: Porro Vita
This relatively new, up and coming juice bar has surely established its presence on the OC health food scene. Started by local Chase Bray, who had the desire to share his passion for healthy living, Porro Vita is a trendy space where local juice addicts can come and pick up a blended smoothie, fresh juice or Acai bowl any day of the week! Complete with local artwork and chill sitting areas, this juice bar is definitley one to try out. Prices may be higher than some; but this can be attributed to its prime location, just steps away from the Newport Peninsula sand.
Recommended juices: Kale-I-Fornia (kale, apple, spinach, and cucumber) & Luv Ur Liver (apple, cucumber, beet, lemon, ginger, and carrot)
