The Juice Bar Scene
After all the holiday ham, champagne celebrations, and leftover hangover cures, everyone is looking at the ways to start 2015 on the right track. Newport Beach has always been the epicenter of healthy living in Orange County, so now that the ball has dropped, we have collected a list of some of the hottest Newport Beach juicing spots that will help you get back on the ball. We picked out some of our favorite juices and cleanses to help you start your new year the right way.
The experience of enjoying an acai bowl is perfectly described, “when you eat it…it’s like your body has been craving this for a long time.” Bowl of Heaven, created by Brandon Beazer and Dan McCormick, is famous for these delicious and healthy treats, but has expanded their menu to include other tasty offerings. On top of the acai bowl craze, smoothies and juices can also be found here. One of the newest in the bunch is called Orange Crush, a bright blend of carrots, orange and apple, sure to be the hit of the spring.
The juice craze goes beyond the cleansing part or rebooting from a week long butter filled food binge. Juice Crafters works hard to piece flavors and healing benefits in each delicious bottle, much like Momma’s homemade remedies. This family run business carefully crafts each juice to be a blend of curing and preventative properties coming together to be the perfect “nature’s medicine”. Anti-aging, muscle and nerve stregthening, and vision improvement are just a few of the slew of upgrades that these juices hope to provide. Enough of the watermelon, carrot, apple, and ginger “Fresh and Clean #11”, you’ll be giving Superman a run for his money.
The juicing bug is no longer just for the health conscience mom or the food freak doctor, but the live better model has translated to the surfers and hipsters of this generation. Porrovita is a true testament to that. The “hang loose” feel of this juicery really makes an islander feel at home, and the juices names bring wit and charm to complete the package. “Luv Ur Liver” is a blend of apple, cucumber, beer, lemon, carrot, and ginger and may have a healing impact on your hangover. The special liver loving elixir is the favorite of Chase Bray, the creator of Porrovita.
