If you're in the Meatpacking District, visit Juice Press
While these storefronts seem to be popping up all around town, the no-man's-land between the High Line and the A/C/E metro stop is home to its flagship juicery.
Our pick: the Almond Butter Cup smoothie
While it's not entirely guilt-free (thanks to ingredients like almond butter and raw cacao), it is better than anything that ends in "flurry." Add a scoop of the "field of greens" powder to add in a vitamin or 16.
Juice Press, 122 Greenwich Ave. (at Eighth Ave.); juicepress.com
If you're on the Upper East Side, opt for Organic Avenue
Another citywide purveyor of no-brainer bottled juice, this local chain has two spots on the UES, should you be making the weekend museum rounds.
Our pick: the Green Monkey smoothie
Not all kale blends are created equal. Thanks to the added banana, this drink is heartier than the other green-colored alternatives and doesn't taste like you've dumped a bag of lawn clippings into your mouth.
Organic Avenue, 1021 Lexington Ave. (at 73rd St.), 106 E. 86th St. (at Park Ave.); organicavenue.com
If you're in Soho, stop by Miss Lily's
This beloved Jamaican joint has a wealth of island-inspired snacks and juices to grab quickly, so you can get back to shopping for Chloé bags.
Our pick: the Peanut Butter and Jelly smoothie
We're fans of peanut butter on pretty much everything (apples, bread, spoons), but this blend curbs the same craving and adds in a healthy dose of blueberries.
Miss Lily's, 132 W. Houston St. (at Sullivan St.); misslilysnyc.com
If you're in Columbus Circle, sip on Juice Generation
A happy medium between Bouchon Bakery and Starbucks does exist around these parts (and it's just one of many around town).
Our pick: the Antioxidant All-Star
Acai, pomegranate, blueberries and whatever "noni" is come together to fight free radicals and punch up your Central Park picnic.
Juice Generation, 979 Eighth Ave. (at 58th St.); juicegeneration.com
If you're in Union Square, try One Lucky Duck
Look out for surprising ingredients, like cilantro and lime, to make guest appearances in this line of concoctions.
Our pick: the Avo-colada smoothie
Somehow the pairing of avocado, pineapple and vanilla works almost too well--meaning it tastes like it should involve rum and a cabana boy.
One Lucky Duck, 125 E. 17th St. (at Irving Pl.); oneluckyduck.com
If you're in FiDi, check out Terri
Don't let the neon sign and menu-item names like "Lady in Red" fool you: Its raw, organic treats are decidedly 21st century--and a far cry from the area Burger Kings.
Our pick: the Sunset Proposal smoothie
Again, tacky '80s references aside, the blend of pineapple, mango, banana and coconut is an ideal way to beat the heat. Add rice protein to make it more filling.
Terri, 100 Maiden Ln. (at Pearl St.); terrinyc.com
If you're in Harlem, stop by Oasis Juice Bar
Nestled between the top of Riverside Park and the Broadway 1 train stop, this relatively new addition to the neighborhood is already a resounding favorite.
Our pick: the Kale and Watermelon juice
Get your greens with a side of summer's all-star player. It's a serious refresher following, say, a bike ride up the West Side.
Oasis Juice Bar, 3163 Broadway (at Tiemann Pl. below 125th St.)
If Cheetos are wrong, we don't want to be right. Yet try as we may to be on our best snacking behavior, there are always those times when you find yourself in an unfamiliar part of town, craving a pick-me-up and subsequently caving at the closest bodega.
That's where Manhattan's glut of trendy juice joints comes in. An organic smoothie or cold-pressed juice can be a convenient snack without the dinner-destroying side effects...or incriminating nacho-cheese residue.
Wherever the city takes you, there's a nearby spot to fill you up. Find them here.
