These are the juices you must try now, from Pressed’s strawberry almond to Beaming’s Sexy Smoothie to Moon Juice’s Matcha Pearl, which is laced with Beauty Dust. Yes, you read that right.

1 Moon Juice

Moon Juice is as creative concept as they come. You'll find a range of juices, milks and tonics PLUS some clever packaged powders like moon dust, sex dust and brain dust. We could ALL use some of those. Were big fans of the Matcha Pearl, a metabolism and energy enhancer. Creamy Lait de Coco paired with the detoxifying Schisandra and calcium rich Pearl in the brand's beauty dust is an awesome, ethereal sipper. As far as their regular libations go, Moon Juice is tops. We love the Deep Chocolate Force—alkaline water, activated almonds, coconut nectar, cacao, cinnamon, ho shou wu, reishi, shilajit and pink salt—and the Almond moon, a blend of alkaline water, activated almonds, coconut nectar and pink salt that claims to be the best almond milk on earth. Our take: we'd prefer to say it's out of this world.

2 Kreation

What we love best about Kreation is that they offer quick hits called syringes, but for wellness. Where did you THINK we were going with that one? While we live and die by the Antidote, which combines infection-fighting and antiseptic properties of oregano oil with a refreshing burst of vitamin C from pineapple, who can resist the Beautify, which makes your hair and nails all pretty like with a blend of boron, zinc and silicon?

3 Clover Juice

Clover, a fab juicery developed by husband and wife team Andrew and Cassandra Walker, as well as friend Beau Laughlin, is offering three new amazing juices this year that promote health and wellness. Our favorite, the Coco Vert, proves that it IS easy being green. This green confection is a plant-based protein and superfood stacked sweet treat made with almond, cashew, coconut meat, spirulina, coconut nectar, tahitian vanilla bean, pink himalayan salt, and h2o. The newest addition to the ‘Laits’ family is superfood packed with added spirulina to the already protein rich nut blend (known as the world’s first superfood), adding even more clean burning protein along with other benefits. Also blended in is coconut meat, which is high in fiber and boosts energy. PS vanilla bean is an aphrodisiac so there you go. Other new flavors include Sunrise, which should give drinkers energy, glowing skin and anti-inflammation, and the Charcoal Chia, a deeply detoxifying lemonade with raw protein, fiber and healthy omega's made with chia seed, lemon, maple syrup, activated charcoal, and h2o.

4 Pressed

Just in time for Valentine's Day, fan favorite juicery Pressed is launching its appropriately colored strawberry almond limited flavor. This sweet pink treat features strawberry, almonds, vanilla bean, beet and coconut water and is the perfect guilt-free version of your childhood favorite strawberry milk. It has a lightly sweet flavor (there is no sweetener added—all the flavor comes from the strawberries) and is also an excellent source of Vitamin C and a good source of potassium. Additionally, for anyone who is looking for a thoughtful gift this Valentine’s Day, look no further than Pressed Juicery’s Juice Gram! Beginning Feb. 2., customers can head to our web site and send a free, mini juice gram to their favorite valentine. Senders can pick from three different flavors to send—Strawberry Almond, Roots 3 and Citrus 2—and their valentine will receive an email voucher they can bring to any Pressed Juicery store to pick up the gift. Senders will also get a little something for themselves—a coupon for a free mini Strawberry Almond juice, redeemable in-stores. Make sure to head to the brand's Venice location on Abbot Kinney to try its new warm line of superfood tonics and lattes, called Heat. We give the maca latte two very enthusiastic thumbs up.

5 Beaming

While we love everything at Beaming, a great chain of superfood cafes, we couldn't resist writing about the libido-boosting, superfood "Sexy Smoothie", designed to kick things up a notch, so you can have an extra romantic Valentine’s Day. This awesome confection contains Maca, the ultimate superfood aphrodisiac, a libido and fertility booster; raw cacao, a natural energy booster and aphrodisiac; almonds, also referred to as the “sex hormone booster”; and Goji berries, which support the adrenal glands, boost immunity, enhance memory, calm the nerves and have anti-fungal and anti-bacterial compounds. Healthy never sounded so hot.
