We know New Jersey is the go-to state for the best Italian food, bakeries, and boardwalk treats. But, we’re not all about the bad stuff. The Garden State is also home to tons of farms providing fresh produce and restaurants with healthy food options. One of the healthiest things of all is pressed juice and the area certainly doesn’t disappoint when it comes to those offerings as well. Here are the best juice bars in Jersey City.
Not only do they have fresh juices here, but it’s also a health product store. The drinks are about $5 (much less than your typical juice) and the owner makes them quickly. There are lots of other teas, healthy snacks, vitamins, powders, and natural lotions in this small but packed store.
What to Order: Try the Pineapple Mango Ginger it’s a sweet treat with the added health benefits of calming an upset stomach and helping relieve muscle pain.
Their smoothies are delicious and don’t contain any refined sugars, syrups, or dairy. The watermelon juice is a favorite among many customers, is good post workout and is so refreshing. The prices are also very reasonable compared to other juice bars.
What to Order: The Pineapple Mint and The Green are perfect for a hot summer day or even just to hydrate.

The smoothies are really addicting and fresh. Along with smoothies, there are other healthy options to order like salads and panini’s. There’s even seating upstairs, so you can relax while enjoying your juice or full blown lunch.
What to Order: The top three that are a must get are The Caribbean Splash, Mago Mania, and Pitaya Passion. All of them are delicious!
Even though it’s inside of Hudson Play, if you’re a smoothie/juice person, then this place is for you. With smoothies titles like: Optimus Prime, Hot Rod, Bumblebee, you have to expect they will transform your day. They have also got a ton of healthy packaged food options for your post gym routine. The staff is also very friendly and accommodating.
What to Order: The Rodius Prime is packed with amazing nutrient-packed veggies like spinach, kale, and spirulina, but with the added bonus of having a sweeter taste thanks to the banana, dates and almond milk.
5. Jamba Juice
The original place to get juices is still worth the trip. Jamba offers freshly squeezed juices and smoothies made with whole fruits and vegetables that are delicious and nutrient packed. It is just steps away from the Newport PATH station and is conveniently located in the Newport Centre Mall.
What to Order: The Great Greens is the perfect juice as it’s packed with apples, cucumbers, supergreens, lemons, and chia seeds.
