We are obsessed with smoothies, especially those that are all-natural and with Miami vibes. Because it is always summer in Florida and in our hearts, we have here some of our favorite smoothie shops in the area that everyone who visits must try.
Like zen in a cup, these healthy smoothies are not only uniquely tasty and vibrantly refreshing, they also have a taste of pure goodness that only comes from all-natural ingredients and a whole lot of love. We suggest trying out The Marley, a mix of: banana, almond milk, kale, spinach and peanut butter. Oh, and they come in mason jars with cute little retro striped straws, so really it’s everything we love all in one.
The tropical juice and smoothie experts of South Beach are here and more than ready to serve you with some fresh goodies to keep up that healthy beach glow. Their variety is huge and we can’t pick just one, but if we absolutely had to, we would recommend the oh-so-Miami cantaloupe, papaya, strawberry and watermelon smoothie. This drink is a summer classic, and since in Miami it is always summer, we say YES.
Well, the name says it all. A local favorite, this small beach shop is an absolute must for whenever you are in town. Because we just cannot get over how much we love mojitos, we of course recommend the delicious Mooojito Smoothie, which contains pineapple, coconut and mint. No it does not have rum (though hey you can spike it) but it is the sugarless super healthy essence of Miami in a cup.
Unless you have been living under a rock, you know Acai is the new superfood, and therefore we should eat it on everything, right? Carrot Express’ Acai Dream Smoothie is a health-nut’s dream come true! Made with acai, blueberries, strawberries, fresh orange juice and bananas, this refreshing and sweet mix is the beach drink that will keep our bellies full and our bodies fab.
Pura vida or “purely life” is a phrase we love, which is why we were drawn to this wonderful smoothie spot in the first place, but apart from being spiritually in tune with our beach paradise mentality, it also boasts Miami Beach’s hautest vegan smoothies. We suggest trying the Coffee Explosion, an energizing and unique mix made with bananas, almonds, walnuts, plums and espresso! After sipping on this you’ll be awake for hours, so it may be best to take it before a productive day at work or early morning workout.
Okay so this may be cheating because everyone knows Jugofresh, but we love it, so we think you should go. When we stop by this hot spot in Miami, our perfectly packaged bottled smoothie of choise is the Sueño. Made with coconut water, cashew, coconut meat, alkaline water, date, cacao, vanilla and himalayan sea salt, it is a hydrating tropical mix that we just can’t stop drinking! It may be more on the commercial side but try it out and you’ll see why it is one of our all-time faves.
