I usually do not go to many chain stores. However, this juice bar caught my attention while driving by, so I decided to pop in yesterday for a treat.
This location is the only one in Oregon, so it is an honor to have it right here in Hillsboro. Each store is individually owned and operated.
I feel that helps it stand out.
Right away, I felt a very positive vibe walking into the store. I ordered on the mobile app, which made it very easy for a quick pick up of my order. You can also earn one point for each dollar spent on the app.
I decided to pick up some delicious treats for my son and me. I went for a dragonfruit smoothie bowl. It was so beautiful to look at with the bright pink color of the fruit. I love how you can customize what is in the smoothie as well as your toppings.
I opted to remove the bananas from the smoothie blend and topped the bowl with coconut flakes, strawberries, and hemp granola. There is an option to add honey if you like as well.
It was a delicious smoothie bowl that I was able to enjoy on a hot, sunny day. The portion is very generous, and I shared it later with my husband.
I especially loved the crunch of the hemp granola on top.
Next time I can add other toppings such as cacao nibs, chia seeds, peanuts, goji berries, and almonds. I love the variety offered here that you do not see at other juice bars.
My son opted for the lucky lemon punch smoothie that contains lemonade, raspberry juice, pineapple sherbet, and strawberries. It was light, refreshing, and tart. Yummy!
This juice and smoothie bar also offers packages of juice cleanses that you can pick up at the store daily. It is a perfect option for those wanting a fresh product but who do not have time or the equipment to make it at home.
They offer 3-5 day juice cleanse plans and can help you customize your order. These are offered year-round at the shop.
This shop also offers a sustainable source of acai berries. According to a post on their Facebook page:
"We are proud to partner with Sambazon®, whose mission is to help protect the Amazon, support sustainable harvesting practices and give back to the family farmers they work with!" * *https://www.facebook.com/juiceituptanasbourne/
If you want to get creative, you can even create your raw juice with choices of vegetables and fruits. They also offer ginger and wheatgrass shots at this location.
The latest news from their website is*:
" We’ve recently included bright blue Spirulina into a Vital Proteins ® Blue Bowl and Blue Smoothie that’s as photogenic as it is delicious. This bowl and smoothie is packed full of Vitamin B12 from the Spirulina boost that’s entirely plant-based. Vitamin B12 is a great way to increase your energy for a pre-workout snack!" *https://www.juiceitup.com/menu/whats-new/
I am looking forward to returning and trying more of their juices, smoothies, and bowls in the future. I love that they have a variety of superfood bowls, smoothie bowls, juices, and smoothies for all diets and tastes.
If you are vegan you can opt for soy milk, almond milk, and other non-dairy alternatives in your smoothies.
Here's to a healthy and delicious spring for all of us!
