The Best Places to Grab a Smoothie in Lake Forest

At Kelmscott, we care about our health. And so we’re paying a little extra attention to our beverage choices these days.

Here’s the drill: high fructose corn syrupout! Artificial colors (and flavors) – out!

What’s in? Anything that’s all-natural, fresh, and nutritious. Luckily for us, that’s not too hard to find in the Lake Forest area. All we have to do is make a little trip to any of these local establishments:

LF Juice

You will not find any of those scary additives at LF Juice. This downtown area juice bar is highly in demand, for good reason.

Whenever possible, LF Juice uses organic ingredients in its fresh creations. The juice is raw and cold-pressed, which helps it to maintain its nutrients. Enjoy a shot or a larger 16-ounce bottle of cold-pressed juice. Juices come in glass bottles, and you can see their antioxidant-filled vivid colors through the glass.

You can mix up your choices from week to week. Try out a vivid red “Heartbeet” with beet, red apple, cucumber, and lemon. Or sample a “Glowing Green” with kale, spinach, collard greens, parsley, cucumber, celery, and lemon.

If you want something creamier, go for a smoothie. LF Juice has a variety of simple or enriched smoothies, with protein or other enhancements available.

True Juice

In nearby Winnetka, you’ll find this juice joint, serving up cold-pressed juices, smoothies, and even some food (if you’re craving a solid snack).

True Juice offers you the option of replacing your banana base with avocado, for a lower glycemic index. Try a fruity and light “75 and Sunny” with watermelon, mango, pineapple, and strawberries. Or, fuel yourself after some intense exercise with a smoothie called “The Workout” – a mix of strawberries, banana, coconut water, grass-fed whey protein or a vegan option.
