Raw Juice Company

Bottoms Up
By Kristi Kates | April 1, 2017

Soon we’ll welcome warmer days, more outdoor activities, beaches opening for the season… and the annual panic about beachwear we might or might not fit into.

One simple way to get healthier is to join the raw juice craze. Among several regional options are those from the Raw Juice Company in Traverse City.

Raw Juice’s offerings are proof that what’s good for you can be delicious, too. Try these three for starters: the fresh taste of Lean Clean Greens, a zingy and bright combination of Tuscan kale, spinach, romaine, fennel, celery, zucchini, cucumber, and lemon; the more earthy, invigorating mix of beet, green apple, strawberry, and lime in the Earth Candy blend; and the everything-orange jumble of Clarity, which brings together orange, cantaloupe, carrot, sweet potato, lemon, and ginger for a drink reminiscent of another favorite summertime treat, the Creamsicle.

Try them all at local grab n’ go locations like Brew at 108 E. Front Street or Breakaway Cafe at 1990 US-31 North (both in Traverse City), or online at
