With the start of summer upon us, there’s no better way to cool down than with an ice-cold green juice from one of these crazy-good juice bars in La Jolla.

Fresh to Order

What makes these juice bars special, anyway? These locations make their juices fresh-to-order and cold-pressed, while big brand names use High Pressure Pasteurization (HPP) to prolong their juice’s shelf-life. In the process, the ingredients in the juice are stripped of their live enzymes and other nutrients. Because these smaller juice bars don’t use HPP to make their juice, the juices not only taste good, but they provide your body with 100% of the nutrients that their ingredients contain. Here are our 5 favorite green juices in La Jolla:

1. The Greenie
Nekter Juice Bar
834 Kline Street
La Jolla, CA 92037
