On these hot Texas summer days, nothing tastes better than a fresh smoothie or a cold acai bowl filled with natural berries and leafy greens. I recently discovered a new little spot right up the road from my house that has the best naturally fresh juices, smoothies and bowls!

Nekter Juice Bar has 3 locations in the DFW area and several in California. Their organic juices and cleanses have made them popular and their incredible customer service and delicious flavors will keep them growing all over the States.

My Favorite Menu Options
The Nekter menu is filled with delicious juices, smoothies and bowls–but my top menu favorites are the Acai Banana Berry Bowl, The Greenie Juice and the Berry Banana Burst Smoothie.

The Acai Banana Berry Bowl is a cold, refreshing treat that is filling enough to substitute a light lunch or is great for an afternoon snack. It is made with acai, strawberry, blueberry, banana and house made vanilla cashew milk, blended together and topped with hemp seed, granola, fresh strawberries, blueberries, bananas and agave nectar (and, it’s only 390 calories!). **Side Note: I always ask for gluten-free granola with extra blueberries in my bowl – yum!  

The Greenie is a juice made from parsley, spinach, kale, celery, cucumber, lemon, and apple. This is their signature drink because it is loaded with all the best nutrient rich and appetite suppressing vegetables that keep you going all day! The added apple makes it sweet and tasty to drink while you’re getting your daily greens.

The Berry Banana Burst Smoothie is made with strawberries, bananas, blueberries, house made vanilla cashew milk, and a little agave nectar for sweetening. This is a delicious and refreshing post workout snack, or a small substitute for any meal. I love smoothies, and this is one of my favorites!

The Nekter Cleanse
If you have a desire to start eating healthier and want to rid your body of unwanted toxins and chemicals, a cleanse might be the best way to start. Detoxes and cleanses help us by jump-starting a healthier lifestyle because they demand our self control when we have to say no to unhealthy food choices, and yes to the things that are good for our bodies!

With all the preservatives and chemicals in our daily diets, we could all use a cleanse from time to time. The Nekter Cleanse is designed to help your body regain balance through their 6 bottle series of cold-pressed juices. The 1-5 day cleanse options flood your body with immune-boosting vitamins and antioxidants, helping you get over your sugar cravings while preparing your body for healthier eating habits. Plus, the juices taste delicious and fill you up!

I downloaded the Nekter App on my iPhone, and always use it to order ahead and pay online. Then, I just swing into the store while I’m running errands and my order is ready to go! This app allows you to skip the line and earn rewards at the same time–win, win!
