It used to be that if you drink pressed juices, you were either a health nut weirdo or...you were a health nut weirdo. But at some point, people realized that juices were the cheater's way to get at least three servings of fruits and veggies conveniently delivered through as a drinkable liquid. Then, juice cleanses became a thing, juices got mainstream, and now there are more juice and smoothie bars then you can shake a straw at. *
(* Six. That's the maximum amount of bars you can shake a straw at - six. That's a fact.)
Anyways, being vegan has exploded in trendiness, and the number of places eager to serve juices and smothies to you had multiplied in the past couple of years. Where should you go? Well, click here for the Best Montreal Vegan Juice and Smoothie Bars>4631 Boulevard Saint-Laurent, Montréal, QC H2T 1R2Okay, the other "the" vegan restaurant in Montreal. Aux Vivres serves delicious juices and smoothies in their airy Plateau location. Don't just go there for the juice, stay for vegan versions of other classic foods, like vegan souvlaki platters and tofu scrambles.
Nutrimania is all about "plant power" - you know, the power of plants. Interesting catchphrase, but good choice for a juice bar. Each of their smoothies are packed with different ingredients, and they have the nutritional info of each one available too.
Great and unpretentious choice for a juice bar in Outremont. You can grab a meal while you're there too.
The company has been endorsed by famous athletes, trying to target the "post-work out power shake" market rather than the "vegan hippie" market. But they have a juice for just about every type of person, offering a ton of choices on their menu. They also have locations all over the island, making it the most convenient bar on this list.
Quality and environmental friendliness - what more can you ask from a juice company? They even make a vegan eggnog (well, "Cashew Nog"), perfect for the holidays.
