There's not much better for the body than a blended juice made with the freshest ingredients. And thankfully Amsterdam is a city which offers a rich wealth of options when it comes to getting your juice fix.

ROOTS have a range of seven organic, cold-pressed juices on offer, plus a range of delicious shots they call elixirs. Try the Tummy elixir, with, papaya, liquorice and a few more surprises in a compact, eco-friendly package. There’s also plenty on the menu for vegans, and those who avoid gluten and lactose.
ROOTS, Amstelveenseweg 164
The Cold Pressed Juicery
Thanks to an almost two-metre high juicer, the Cold Pressed Juicery can squeeze two kilos of delicious fruit and vegetables into your vitamin-packed, half-litre bottle. Grab one of those, or go for a superfood smoothie like The Cup of Youth, a mix of berries, pear, coconut, lemon, vanilla and cinnamon.
The Cold Pressed Juicery, Nieuwe Passeerdersstraat 12
Despite the name, the Juice Brothers is actually run by four friends who all share a passion for healthy, clean food. With five branches spread across the city, an immunity-boosting, antioxidant-rich bottle of Dutch Spice or Unicorn’s Blood is never too far away.

Coffee & Juices
Besides what you’d expect from a top-notch juice bar, Coffee & Juices also puts the same amount of passion into their - you guessed it - coffee. Expert baristas are there to delight with bewitching creations, such as the Double Coconut Cappuccino, which goes particularly well with anything from their extensive menu of delicious baked goods.

Juice to Boost
Red Lipstick, Vanilla Ice Cream and Rhubarb delight – just a few of the many creative and delicious blends on offer at Juice to Boost. All their drinks are developed to give you that boost you need before a long day (or after a long night). In the unlikely event that there’s nothing you want on the menu, you can simply design your own blend.
Juice to Boost, Reguliersdwarsstraat 121
Detoxing with juice is commercially-driven nonsense, or so say the folks at Litedark. Instead of jumping on that trend, Litedark focus on making delicious drinks, like the ginger with chilli and hot apple, or the exceptional Dirty Zoe: a date-sweetened, espresso-based blend with chocolate and almond milk.
Litedark, Utrechtsestraat 22
Juice by Nature
Founded by two friends who love to eat well and enjoy life, Juice by Nature serves fresh, cold-pressed juices, delicious locally-roasted coffee and the kind of healthy food you’d expect from a juice bar. And if you’re in a hurry, you can grab one of their Power Shots, designed to give you that boost you need as quickly as possible.
Juice by Nature, Warmoesstraat 108
Zest for Life
Zest for Life focuses on raw, uncompressed food cooked at low temperatures to preserve its nutritional value. Their selection of cold-pressed fruit juices, vegetable juices and smoothies are all delicious and nutritious. If you’re can't decide what to have we would recommend the Green Supreme, with cucumber, celery, pear and parsley.
Zest for Life, Van Baerlestraat 45
Founded by Jay Garrido after his inspiring journey from drug and drink addiction to becoming a flourishing entrepreneur, Jay’s Juices is now a true institution. The place has been around since 2000, and the venue's extensive (and delicious) selection of juices and blends is one of the best in Amsterdam. The man himself is also exceptionally talented at throwing sunshine into people’s hearts.
