the other week i met up with andreas from the stockholm juice bar juiceverket to talk veggies, recipes and the importance of delicious tasting drinks. juiceverket also kindly shared two of their recipes with me – a polka beet and ginger juice recipe, as well as a green apple and spinach smoothie recipe. both of them were absolutely delicious, so i really recommend you trying them out or visit one of juiceverket’s 5 stockholm locations !

juiceverket is founded and run by friends andreas, sebastian, claes, and niklas. they opened their first place 4 years ago at odenplan in stockholm, after being inspired by the juice bars they’ve visited while travelling abroad. they took about 10 months to develop the concept and 5 years later they now have no less than 5 venues in stockholm.

the venues are beautifully low-tech, with the stock being visibly stored as a part of the interior design. this means that all the ingredients in their drinks are for sale for customers wanting to continue their juicing at home. further emphasizing the down to earth, low-tech feel are the recycled peanut butter jars they’re serving their drinks in.

for those interested in juicing, juiceverket is offering two different kinds of two-day juice fasts – one for people working out, and one more slimmed down. they believe in the benefits of giving your body a break, rebooting that pleasure center and tastebuds as to get rid of unhealthy habits. for them, juicing is not a quick fix, but more of a positive start in building a new healthier lifestyle.

they’ve also published a juicing book, sharing tons of recipes as well as all the good stuff they’ve learned these last few years. it’s an important part of the concept that the drinks are delicious first – healthy second, not the other way around. two of the guys have backgrounds working in restaurants, which gives their take on juicing a little twist. for instance, a part of the book is dedicated to recipes for mixing alcohol-containing juice drinks, and about which juices taste great together with food.

  1. I have to say I was never really inspired by juicing, but these pictures are gorgeous(: I know some people consume a great deal of juice, but I always wondered if it was less healthy to eat only the juice rather than the whole fruit/vegetable… What do you think?

    • thank you sweetie !
      i don’t do juices really, i prefer smoothies. that way we get all the nutrients and fibre :) so i’m on the same page as you. that being said, a juice once in a while isn’t going to kill anyone haha !

  2. It is liquid sunshine for the body and mind! There are many reports of people curing various types of sickness and disease – simply by juicing. The power of fresh food is enormous and the world is starting to catch on.
