It's time to get your juice on people, because after a winter of eating comfort foods to make the cold more bearable, your body is no-doubt in need of some nutrients.
Literally condensing all the health benefits found in fruits and vegetables into liquid form, a freshly-squeezed juice is rich in every nutrient your body needs. Better yet, a quality juice is as refreshing as it is healthy, making it the ideal way to get a little healthier in the summer.
And with the many juice bars in Montreal, enjoying the benefits of juicing is altogether easy. From cold-pressed juice spots (which has more inherent nutrients) to vegetarian eateries, check out ten Montreal juice bars that will help you get fit and healthy below.

This much-adored vegan eatery may be known for its raw cuisine, but you shouldn't forget that Crudessence also functions as a juice bar of sorts.

Easily Montreal's most adored vegan restaurant, Aux Vivres has always boasted a range of freshly squeezed juices, even though its delicious cuisine has overshadowed that fact. Thought of as more of a restaurant than a juice bar, which it is, just don't forget about Aux Vivre's takeout counter which will provide a nutrient-boost while you're on the go on Saint Laurent street.
One of the first companies in Montreal devoted to raw, organic cold-pressed juices, Rejuice provides retailers across the island with quality beverages alongside its flagship juice bar in NDG. Rejuice even offers a cleansing program for those who are looking to get extra healthy this summer season.
You may remember this vegan restaurant as the one that serves its own poutine, but don't assume Copper Branch is a one-trick pony devoted only to vegan-ified comfort foods. Boasting an extensive menu focused on vegan and health-conscious dishes, Copper Branch now also a wide range of smoothies and organic, cold-pressed "Copper Branch Fuel" juices.

Yet another vegetarian-minded eatery to grace this list, Café Nutrimania differentiates itself by being just as much as juice bar as it is a restaurant. Even offering full-on detox programs with its freshly squeezed juices, Café Nutrimania will get you feeling fine and healthy for every meal of the day.
Okay, so I've been focusing on including juice companies that have physical locations on this list, which Dose Juice doesn't really have, but they do have pop-up locations from time-to-time and can be found in many stores and cafes throughout Montreal, so I feel justified in their inclusion.
Cold-pressing juices on the daily, Dose is all about serving quality beverages all throughout Montreal, even giving you the option to pick-up their juices from certain retail locations or have them delivered right to your door!
