Breakfast on the go, pre-workout snack or just powering up for an afternoon of meetings, smoothies come to our rescue no matter the situation. Whether you're detoxing, watching your intake or just fancy something fruity, we've rounded up a few places here in the UAE you can get all things juicy.
1. Nectar Juice Bar
If you're in need of an energy boost but you're not feeling like that third cup of coffee, opt for a Matcha Latte instead. These guys blend raw cashew nut milk with organic matcha powder, fresh spinach and exotic lucuma for a true taste sensation. Or, if you have a sweet tooth, you'll find their Chocolate Heaven smoothie the perfect treat, mixing banana and cashew milk with the finest organic cocoa powder and nibs.
Where: Nectar Juice Bar, Abu Dhabi
2. Jungle Juice
Jungle Juice have a passion for all things nutritious, which is why they thought up their popular 'green' range. They combine the freshest ingredients to give you the maximum number of anti-oxidants and nutrients in every mouthful. We love their Tropical Beet smoothie, packing in beetroot, spinach, turmeric, banana, mango and pineapple. The Berry Good is also a solid choice, with mixed berries, banana, fresh apple juice and low-fat yoghurt.

3. Jamba Juice
Although they serve up wholesome cuisine too, it's liquid lunch that Jamba Juice specialise in. Here they offer up a huge range of juices, smoothies and unique blends, and they even have their own cleansing programme. One of their most popular take-outs is their Razzmatazz smoothie, where fresh mixed berries and bananas are blended with frozen yogurt, for a fruity iced drink that'll leave a smile on your face.
Where: Jamba Juice, various locations
4. Jugo Juice
If you're in on the superfood scene, head to Jugo Juice. These guys are all about detoxing and leading super clean lifestyles, so they pack loads of goodies into their juicy delights. We love their range of Veggie Smoothies, such as Mighty Kale, where fresh spinach, mango, pineapple, orange juice and apple juice are mixed together with kale for a powerhouse breakfast on the go.
5. Juice Paradise
It's time for an adventure on the beach in Juice Paradise. These guys have been serving up their wholesome, vitamin-rich juices for years. They blend every ingredient you can think of, but their avocado range really deserves some love. Opt for one of their specials, like the refreshing fruity burst Hawaii Juice, which pairs mango, avocado, rose syrup and nuts together in perfect harmony.

6. Melvin's Juice Box by Miss Lily's
For a taste of Caribbean in the UAE, Melvin's Juice Box is the place for you. Aside from their world-famous Jamaican cuisine, they also have a range of refreshing cold press juices for you to sample. Our favourite is their bottle of Sweet & Dandy, where you'll find beets, carrots and pineapple, with sweet apple, a kick of ginger and a squeeze of lemon.
