Juice Shop - A Review

Updated on October 4, 2016

Juice Shop - Since 1996!

For some of the best smoothies around - you have to try Juice Shop smoothies. They have less than 2 grams of fat, 375 - 425 calories, and provide 2 -3 servings of fruit. And they taste .... well more on that later!

I used to hear friends, co-workers and my oldest daughter talk about Juice Shop all the time. They loved it! I couldn't imagine having a smoothie for lunch and nothing else. I didn't think there was enough to satisfy anyone. I was wrong...

My Review

Talk about finding your niche! Juice Shop has definitely found theirs! They don't sell frozen yogurt - even though they use it in their smoothies. They don't sell juice - even though they use it in their smoothies. They could sell fruit - but they need them for the smoothies! They have taken a single product, come up with 10 different flavors and found success.

I love these 24-ounces of sheer enjoyment! I use them to treat myself or my daughters if we have had a great week. I buy a smoothie when I feel a cold coming on (I'm sure the extra servings of fruit must help!) I wish I could have a Juice Shop smoothie every day - but then they wouldn't be so special!

My daughters complain that I drink them too fast - I usually give myself brain freeze! They are THAT good! But the truth is I don't want them to "melt". They do have frozen yogurt or sherbet in them and they will "melt" - who wants to "drink" their ice cream!

Juice Shop - 3 Locations to Choose From - Greensboro - Friendly Shopping Center

I frequent either the Friendly or Lawndale location - whichever I am closer to at the time! They aren't that far apart so I can pick either!

The Flavors!

There are 10 different smoothies to choose from, so there is something for everyone! I was never a big "fruit juice" drinker so I resisted trying smoothies for a very long time. I challenge everyone to go to the local smoothie shop and try one. Pick your favorite fruit and just try it!

  • Strawberry Splash (my favorite!): Apple juice, strawberries, banana, and nonfat frozen yogurt
  • Citrus Twist (my oldest & youngest daughter's favorite): Orange juice, strawberries, banana, and orange sherbet
  • Cranberry Crush: cranberry juice, blueberries, strawberries, and raspberry sherbet
  • Blueberry Blitz: Apple juice, blueberries, banana, nonfat frozen yogurt, and raspberry sherbet
  • Arctic Orange: Orange juice, strawberries, banana, and nonfat frozen yogurt
  • Berry Delight: Apple juice, blueberries, strawberries, pineapple sherbet
  • Guava Gulp: Guava juice, peaches, banana, and pineapple sherbet
  • Polar Peach: Guava juice, peaches, banana, and orange sherbet
  • Razzmatazz: Raspberry juice, strawberries, banana, and raspberry sherbet
  • Raspberry Rush: Raspberry juice, raspberries, banana, and nonfat frozen yogurt

The Extras!

Ok, so it's not enough that they make awesome smoothies - you can add "stuff" to them to make them healthier!

  • Bee Pollen (my favorite!): Helps with allergies & increases energy levels.
  • Shop Boost (the one that my daughters like!): 51 vitamins and minerals, and amino acids.
  • Lecithin: Helps breakdown fat & cholesterol.
  • Calcium: For strong bones and prevents osterperosious.
  • Protein Powder: Good for low fat diets and helps maintain muscle.

Things To Do Today! - Visit Juice Shop!

I keep wanting to try other flavors, but I can't bring myself to do it. I feel it would be disloyal to my favorite - Strawberry Splash! Maybe the next time my daughter orders her Citrus Twist, I'll try it. The Blueberry Blitz does sound interesting - I love blueberries, but I've never liked sherbet that much. I wish they would have a trial size of the smoothies - like ice cream shops that allow you to try their various flavors before you select.

      That're delicious looking smoothies. I'll take anything with strawberry. If you want to make your own, fresh juice then have a look at my site @ Find tons of information on fresh juice!

      the juices have diuretic properties, buffers, antioxidants, remineralizing and toning. In addition, the fruit has detoxifying qualities, prevents cancer, regulates the intestinal tract and prevent cardiovascular disease. In short, two or three glasses of good natural juice made from fruits or vegetables in season is an excellent source of health.Thanks for sharing a very informative lens.

      health drink.
