When life calls for a pick-me-up, the best clean-energy boost comes from vegetables and fruits. In Aspen, several juice stands are serving up delicious variations of on the concoctions. Here’s where to get it.
1 Honeybee Juice Bar
Kate Linehan's juice bar is so popular in Aspen that customers schedule bulk pick-up orders weeks in advance. The juices are cold-pressed daily, using local, organic produce and each contains two to three pounds of fruits and vegetables. The Classic Green combines kale, cucumber, lemon, apple, and seasonal greens for a blast of energy, and for those wanting to detoxify Honeybee sells packaged juice cleanses. Look out for its new location in the Aspen Club & Spa.

2 Spring Cafe
Healthy, vegetarian food options have taken over a corner in Aspen's culinary scene. Situated on Spring and Hyman, the Spring Cafe focuses on organic, fresh food and juice is one of the stars. Try the Beet Mine, a combination of watermelon, beet, mint and lime for a fresh pick-me-up. If juice isn't enough, the creative menu will be.

3 Peach's Corner Cafe
Power breakfasts and lunches made from pure ingredients may be the draw at this cafe, but Peach's is also the stop for a pressed juice. Grab a green or red shake-on-the-go from the cooler, or order a Dave's shake--banana, almonds, kale and apple--from the counter and sip away.
