URTH Juice Bar

URTH Juice Bar packs pounds of fresh produce into each 16-ounce beverage. Smoothies are blended to order with soy, almond, coconut or whole milk and offer an even more filling meal replacement with around 250 calories per serving, versus the juices’ 180- to 200-calories. Drinks such as the customer favorite Grassy Knoll, a green juice with kale, ginger, spinach, apple, cucumber and parsley, or the Bada-Bing smoothie with banana, yogurt, flax oil, honey and blueberries, run between $7 and $8, with specials on multi-day cleanses. URTH is open every day, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday. A Current fave? The Hot Lei, a spicy and power-packed green juice with kale, pineapple, ginger, apple, spinach, cucumber, parsley and cayenne. Don’t forget to return the glass bottle for 50 cents off your next purchase.
