My favorite healthy juice bars and wellness eateries around Miami
Miami, following Los Angeles’ trend, is starting to see a rise of super healthy juice bars and wellness eateries. Many of these cafes go well beyond just serving nutritious and high-quality food and beverages. It’s about feeling comfortable and inspired while eating. My favorite ones offer comfortable seating, free WiFi, and very cool music playlists. “Green is the new Black”, they say.
We all have our favorite spots but these are my top 3, in no particular order:
1- Jugo Fresh
I like this juice bar because it is conveniently located in multiple Whole Foods Markets (I go to 3 of them: South Beach, Brickell and South Miami). Their cold-pressed juices are great, but I love their smoothies. My daughter’s and mine favorite ones are: “Muy Simple”, which is just almond mylk, strawberry and banana, and “Kaleito”, with apple, celery, spinach, parsley, lemon, kale and banana.
2- Dr. Smood, 5801 Sunset Drive, South Miami, 33143
I enjoy being in this cafe, working a couple of hours while eating and drinking. “Smart food for a good mood” is their motto. I love their live juices, their raw oatmeal, tuna sandwich and their quinoa salad (I add avocado to it). The one I go to is conveniently located 5 minutes away from my kids’ school. A new exciting location for Dr. Smood will be in the Brickell City Center, opening in just a month!
3- Dirt, 232 5th street, Miami Beach, 33139
I am often in South Beach so this one is a definite gem of the area. It is a clean eating/great taste farm-to-counter eatery. My favorite items are: avocado toast (on a yummy Zak the Baker bread), curried cauliflower bowl (you can add quinoa-crusted fish of the day), detox salad with roasted beets, fennel and goat cheese (you can add butcher’s cut steak) and dragon fruit bowl with dragon fruit, banana, pineapple, house made almond + brazil nut mylk, blueberries, kiwi and granola.
