Whether you’re looking for a meal on the go or a refreshing sip on a hot desert day, a freshly squeezed juice or blended smoothie is sure to hit the spot. Juice bars have been popping up across the desert as of late, so visitors to the desert won’t have any problems getting their juice on in Palm Springs.
One juice bar that’s been making waves across the desert is Fresh Juice Bar. With locations in Palm Springs, Palm Desert and La Quinta, Fresh Juice Bar makes it convenient to get your daily dose of freshly juiced fruits and vegetables.

The bar is known for signature juice blends such as “The Bomb,” which includes freshly juiced pineapple, cucumber, spinach, apple and mint.
Those who partied a little too hard the night before can also do some damage control the morning after with the “Hangover Helper,” which includes apple, cucumber, kale, ginger, lemon, aloe vera and pink Himalayan sea salt.
The smoothie options include the brightly pink-colored raw pitaya smoothie and the locally inspired “Desert Delight,” which includes Coachella Valley dates and vanilla beans.
Juices and smoothies at Fresh Juice Bar feature coconut water and homemade almond milk, adding to the natural essence of the menu. Bowls and boosts abound, too. For those who want to add an element of wellness to their stay in Palm Springs, Fresh Juice Bar’s “Desert Detox Diet Juices” and cleanse juices are a perfect fit.
Over the summer, another juice bar opened on the eastern side of the valley in Bermuda Dunes. Juicy Juicy specializes in fresh juices and smoothies. This juice bar is also bringing a jolt of energy to the desert, with one of her signature offerings: bulletproof coffee.
The latest caffeinated craze to hit the coffee world, bulletproof coffee is made by adding MCT oil and butter to freshly brewed coffee and emulsifying it in a blender. Why? There are a host of possible benefits, from feeling fuller longer to allowing the body to more efficiently absorb the caffeine, leading to higher and more sustained energy levels.
While the jury is still out on the benefits of bulletproof coffee, you can try a cup of this creamy concoction for yourself at Juicy Juicy.
Other specialties at Juicy Juicy include pitaya bowls, wheatgrass shots and chia parfaits. The juice bar also has an old-school Pacman arcade game to keep kids – and kids at heart – entertained as you enjoy fresh juices, smoothies and bowls during your stay in the desert.
