Stress-away juice:
2 apples
2 raw beets
2 carrots
piece of ginger
piece of turmeric root
juice from one lemon
½  tablespoon of Olive oil (poured on the juice once it’s been mixed)


Corner of Carmel Market and Hashomer Street


3.  King George Rasta 


You may be familiar with this stand by the reggae music that rolls down the street. There is usually a friendly man with impressive dreadlocks serving the drinks; he goes by the name of Daniel. 


This is not quite like any other juice stand; the atmosphere is very inviting and relaxing, while at the same time offers a quick stop. The location of this stand, located on the hustle and bustle of King George, makes it a great place for an early morning detox after a long night in the city that never sleeps.




-Kassandra recommends


Detox-morning-after-hangover-fix:
1 bunch grapes
2 apples
1/2 raw beet
1/4 grapefruit
1/4 lemon


King George Street between Bograshov Street and Meir Park


4. Tamara 


Believed to be one of the most beautiful and appetizing fruit juice stands in Tel Aviv. It stands very central, where Ben Gurion boulevard crosses Dizengoff. And each time I pass the hut overflowing with brightly colored, bananas, sabra fruit, kiwis, oranges, pomegranates and more, I always think to hop off the bus and grab a fresh smoothie. I love all fruits and this makes me a very indecisive customer, what I love about Tamara is they always have the patience to make suggestions or additions.




-Kassandra Recommends


Personally I always get a smoothie at Tamara, whereas other juice stands I will usually get fresh squeezed juice. 


My main squeeze is the following mix, with a base of milk:
1 banana
½ cup pineapple
½ cup mango
5 strawberries
4 dates


Corner of Dizengoff and Ben Gurion Street


5. Reasonably refreshing


There’s nothing like a refreshing drink to get you through the unbearably hot summer days in the city, enter Limonana. Limonana is a refreshing take on lemonade and nana (mint leaves) all blended together to make the ideal summer slushy. 


Although most juice stands in the city offer this cooling mix, the best is this juice stand on Nachalat Binyamin. Using whole lemons, the freshest nana (bought first thing in the morning from the market) and a desirable dose of sugar, this heavenly summer drink combines the flawless blend of sweet and tangy.

Lemonana:
2 lemons juiced
zest from half a lemon
2 tablespoons of sugar
1.5 cups of water
6 nana leaves
½ cup of ice


Entrance of Nachalat Binyamin Street


Insider Tip: Almost every juice stand has a loyalty punch card. Don’t forget to ask on your first time, and get a free juice by the end of the week.
