10. JUICING

      Warm beverages are not for Summer. Vegans are
juicing and there are many cool spots (pun intended)
to get your juicing on.

Earth Bar
In West Hollywood Earthbar is a major part of the juice craze.
They cold press organic only produce to create their health filled drinks.
Their jucies are low-glycemic, low-calorie and are low in sugar. They use very
exotic ingredients for maximum quality such as sacha inchi protein, yacon syrup, and
maca. For Ginger and Lemon they use a masticating juicer to squeeze out all the health
benefits and flavors. For more information and locations please visit the official Earthbar
website: http://earthbar.com/

Kreation Juice

Kreation Juice has a mission: To provide healthy and delicious drinks that invigorate minds and bodies in Los Angeles.
Their juicery creates "Pressed Juice" made with 100% organic produce from the Farmer's Market in Santa Monica. Their locations
are as vast as their menu options offering locations in Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Venice, Manhattan Beach and Malibu. 
Be on the look out for the Kreation Juice truck to get the same quality health beverages and to join the jucing bandwagon.

Shred Juice

Surfer themed Shred Juice will have you bikini ready in no time with their cold pressed juices. The menu options are some of the most
creatively named keeping up with California laid back coolness and Surfer slang. Compared to many other juiceries their cleanses are inexpensive
and contain a lot more ingredients than most. They incorporate celery, romaine, cucumber,spinach, kale, parsley, apple, lemon, strawberry, organge,
pineapple, purified water, lemon, honey, cayenne, apple , pear and ginger into their cleanses. A level 1 cleanse is only $37 and a level 2 comes to $45.
