A light cleanse is a great way to wash away time spent lazing around watching Netflix, sitting in traffic, or a hard night out. Lucky for Phoenicians, there are plenty of cold-pressed, raw, and organic juice makers around town to help us mainline nutrients. Some have an upscale ambiance, others are nestled in yoga studios, and a few will even deliver to your door. No matter where you're located in the Valley, you're sure to find the perfect concoction at one of these 10 spots.

Original ChopShop Co.

Multiple Locations

When the original Original ChopShop Co. opened in Old Town in 2013, it pretty much exploded in popularity among college students, health nuts, and those looking to stay trim. The juice and salad specialty spot has now opened an additional four locations, including one in downtown Tempe right next to the ASU campus (finally giving students a legitimately healthy and tasty option within walking distance). Each menu offers delicious vegan, raw, and organic eats like grilled protein bowls, salads, parfaits, protein shakes, and fresh juices.

You’ve also got the Strawberry Warrior (almond) Milk, the Heavy Metal Detox, and the Anton’s Spinach. Kaleidoscope Juice has expanded to two Phoenix locations and two Scottsdale locations.

Known as a mostly vegan café specializing in healthy eating and drinking, 24 Carrots features great specials and a full menu.
