UPDATE 05/07/13: Pure Juice appears to be closed in this location.
Today I visited a fun new juice spot in Kansas City’s Northland, Pure Juice.
Located in an office building near 72nd and North Oak Trafficway, Pure Juice is a hidden surprise. Don’t let the exterior fool you, the office building is full of other non-office kind of businesses, including a salon.
Breanna Graham is the energetic force behind Pure Juice. Each day she offers a different veggie juice, fruit juice and smoothie. Today I had the Green Eyes juice with kale, cucumber, celery, green apples and ginger.
I’m a big sharer of green juice (some of you may say I’m beyond sharing, perhaps even pushy), I let my favorite fella try my juice. I love his Got Juice mustache.
Because that fella of mine is more of fan of sweet than green, he had the fruit juice of the day, Raspberry Lemonade. Made with green apples, raspberries and lemons, you would never guess this juice did not contain some sort of sweetener. It was perfect for a hot day! I also picture this being popular with folks who aren’t quite ready to embrace the swamp-in-a-glass type juices I so love.
While we were enjoying our juice, another customer dropped by to get a smoothie. Seeing all of the fresh organic produce going into the blender and the resulting frothy pink smoothie made me want to come back soon. And with a different menu each day, I’m encouraged me to drop by often!
Pure Juice offers delivery on Fridays, in addition to juice to go. Toss in an extra buck for a deposit on the glass jars your juice comes in and you’re all set!
We spent about $14 on two juices, about what we would spend on an unhealthy lunch out. Instead we got nutrient packed juices that were filling and good for us.
Located at 107-E N.E. 72nd Street in Gladstone, MO, Pure Juice is accessed by turning south on North Walnut from 72nd street and taking the first left into the office building parking lot. Their entrance is on the backside of the building.
