As people become more health conscious, juice bars are gaining momentum. Many people have a common misconception about juice bars. Despite their name, I Love Juice Bar offers a variety of menu items to order including juices, smoothies, and in-house made soups and sandwiches.
About I Love Juice Bar
Juice Bar started in Nashville and has spread to include several Dallas locations. The Allen location opened at the beginning of the year, and they have already gained a lot of fans. Last weekend, Colton and I received an invitation to check them out and hear what they are all about.
John Zuffinetti, owner of Juice Bar, is passionate about empowering people to live healthy lives and have access to great food with quality, local ingredients. He enjoys partnering with the community and beams when he talks about the place he and his wife Brittney has built. I love to support local businesses, so the fact they get their ingredients locally is a huge win for me. They have created a fun culture already in just a short amount of time.
I Love Juice Bar is bright- both in decor and personality. We were greeted with smiles and welcomes when we walked in. It was evident that in the short amount of time, there are already regulars who find this place home. One of the things I saw that set I Love Juice Bar in Allen apart from similar places I have been in is that it is kid-friendly. They have a little table with books and activities for children. You and a friend can grab a board game and disconnect from your phone as well.
The food and drinks
Colton and I were able to try several popular menu items during our visit. We started with the grand slam power shot. This shot series includes a shot of wheatgrass, ginger, lemon and pineapple. Each shot has amazing health benefits on their own, but as a group, is full of Vitamins, digestive support, provides energy and more.
The love hornet is a monster shot with ginger, beet, lemon and jalapeño. I liked the kick of spice the jalapeño gives this one, not to mention it is very pretty.
If you have followed me on Instagram for a while, you know that I love acai bowls. Juice Bar’s acai bowl has a dab of almond butter on them, and now I can’t eat them any other way. They pack it with superfoods to keep you feeling full all day. If you try anything there, get this.
When you are on the go, there are plenty of juices and smoothies to choose from. The green smoothie contains spinach, kale, pineapple, banana, lemon, coconut milk and apple juice. They created a perfect sweet and sour balance with this one, so even your kids will enjoy it!
My favorite smoothie is the cacacacao. Are you surprised? The avocado gives it a smooth texture, and it contains banana and cacao for a rich flavor. Then, they top it with cacao nibs, hemp seeds and goji berries.
Whether you are an experienced juicer or a first timer, I Love Juice Bar is a great choice for you. They offer a variety of juices, smoothies, shots, and food. The people are friendly, helpful and can help even the most indecisive decide on what to order. Since the ingredients are from local sources, it’s fresh and delicious! I Love Juice Bar is a place to grab breakfast and grab a pre-made lunch to go.
Check out their retail selection or juice cleanse options too! I still haven’t tried a juice cleanse, but I am inspired after talking with John about it.
