It’s a sad truth that not all foods that we consider “healthy” have actually earned the label. A closer look at many popular grocery-store juices makes for the perfect example. Though the label may proudly declare how rich the juice is in vitamins, what they don’t tell you is how much of that “natural flavor” comes from sugary substitutes. Next time you’re craving a cool glass of juice, turn to the made from scratch vegan options at Willow in NYC.

Vegan Juice Options at Willow
Rather than relying on sugary sweetness to carry the flavor of our unique juice blends, Willow uses only the freshest veggies and the most creative flavor combinations. No matter your choice, you will be “wowed” by any of our three signature options.
Our cucumber juice is everything you might imagine: mild, crisp, and ever-so-slightly sweet. A sprig of fresh mint only adds to that effect, while a slight hint of lemon brightens up every sip. Perfect as a replacement for the afternoon cocktail, this refreshing drink is sure to become your new favorite Summertime sip.
For something a little heartier in flavor, look no further than our rich, earthy carrot juice. A touch of ginger adds a hint of “spice” and an unexpected kick of flavor. The slight sweetness of fresh apple juice combats the heat, allowing your drink to keep all the ginger flavor and adding another level of complexity.
Looking to quench a sweet tooth without ordering dessert? You’re sure to love our coconut juice. Flavored with fresh celery and honeydew, this treat carries a burst of strong, almost fruity flavor in every sip with none of the unnecessary, artificial sweetness.
Creative Vegan Juice Options for Home
Once you’ve gotten a taste of creative vegan juice, it’s hard to go back! On days you feel like turning your boring afternoon into something different, break out your juicer and make the most of your time with any of these easy, at-home recipes.
Because these recipes are simply guidelines, feel free to experiment with ratios until you find your own perfect blend.
Pineapple and Ginger Juice
To start this recipe, begin with fresh pineapple. Optionally, you may use canned pineapple for convenience, but be sure to check that the pineapple is stored in juice rather than syrup.
Add a chunk of garlic to your juicer, and then operate as usual. Just before serving your juice, add a splash of apple cider vinegar and a light spritz of lemon. In doing so, you add even further to the digestive health of this refreshing juice, brightening up the flavors as you do!
Herbal Berry Juice
Looking for something sweet that’s also full of antioxidants? Look no further than this herbal berry vegan juice!
Pick up all your favorite berries– we suggest starting with strawberries, cherries, and raspberries– and turn to your herb garden for further inspiration. In your juicer, combine your berries with a generous serving of fresh mint and basil.
Just before serving, garnish your glass with a slice of orange to add a pop of color and citrusy flavor you won’t soon forget.
Spiced Carrot Juice
For a much more winter-inspired juice, experiment with this spiced carrot juice until you find the perfect blend of flavors to bring your taste buds alive!
When juicing your carrots, add a dash of cinnamon, a teaspoon of nutmeg, and a healthy serving of allspice. These warm, traditional flavors combine with the earthiness of the carrot juice to create a complex blend of spicy and sweet, like a healthier take on the traditional carrot cake.
