Drink Your Juice, Baby

by Jessica Mackin

Don’t forget to drink your juice, baby. New this summer is Juice Baby, a mobile fresh pressed juice and smoothie truck that has set up shop at the Hayground School in Bridgehampton.

Juice Baby uses fresh fruits and vegetables in all of their juices, with no additives. Juices are made to order, so customers can get their greens super fresh.

Founder Victoria Smith targets popular workout and fitness studios to provide juice or smoothies as a perfect complement to a successful workout. Juice Baby is conveniently located next to The Barn at 264 Butter Lane, home of popular Hamptons fitness studios SoulCycle, Physique 57, and Personal Best. Juice Baby also receives a lot of traffic from the Haygound School's camp and the Hayground's farmers market, which takes place on Fridays.

I stopped by this week to check it out. It was great meeting Victoria as she explained her process and love of fresh juice. I tried the popular “Renegade Lemonade” with local kale, local spinach, celery, local apple, lemon and ginger. My husband, Joe Cipro, tried the “Sweet N’ Dreamy” made with natural peanut butter, cocoa powder, banana, organic agave and almond milk. Other options include the “Skinny Green Bitch” juice made with local kale, local spinach, celery, local cucumber and pear and the “Watermelon Freeze” smoothie with watermelon, cucumber and lemon juice.

We then did shots of ginger, which were extremely powerful and potent. The pineapple chaser definitely helped the burn. The energy boost it gave me for the rest of the day was definitely worth the initial shock.

Juice Baby believes seasonal produce makes the most healthy juices, so check out what's new each week. Juice Baby is open daily from 7:30 AM. You can also order your juice in advance for easy pick up.
