We don't know about you, but it's about that time of year when the sun is starting to shine, the temps are finally heating up, and our bodies are in need of a cleanse. We have found some amazing places to grab some healthy and fresh juice in the city and surrounding suburbs. Here are some of our favorite spots.

Drought just happens to be our absolute FAVE. We love supporting local businesses, especially when they are kick ass women owned and operated businesses with a DELICIOUS product.
The Wash is DROUGHT's proprietary blend of six organic juices, intended to be consumed over the course of one day. Our cleanse packages are carefully mixed, bottled and packaged to provide you an easy option for acquiring and assimilating your daily nutrient needs. Set your intention for the day, the work week or long weekend and easily incorporate the consumption of high-frequency whole foods while giving your digestive system a break.
Check out Drought's website and metro Detroit locations. You get a nice reusable bottle and something you can't just make at home. We've tried and we end up at Drought daily.
Drought was started in Plymouth by an amazing group of sisters that's energy can't be matched.

Urge Juice is raw, cold-pressed 100% juice. URGE is a handcrafted premium juice beverage that is delivered to you in 16 oz. glass bottles, raw and unpasteurized and made from 100% organic produce. With the cold-pressed method, similar to Drought, they use a hydraulic press to extract every available ounce of juice from our fresh organic produce. They never use a blender or centrifugal juicer, which can heat and oxidize the produce because of the spinning blades, resulting in nutrient and enzyme loss. Cold pressed juice is proven to be up to ten times more nutrient dense, and all of the available nutrients, enzymes, and vitamins stay alive as long as the shelf life of the juice (vs. 15-30 minutes with juice made from a blender). With a 72 hour shelf life, you'll have plenty of time to enjoy your liquid food.
